This year’s symbol:

The spiral


'This year our symbol is the spiral ...

The energy of the spiral and the uninterrupted flow from the center and back to it. With references to the ancient geometric theory of Archimedes and the architecture of the spiral at the cape of Santorini, the structure of the spiral is explored both in the philosophy and practice of Tai Chi through forms and the physical structure of the practitioner in space.

The connection and expansion in all dimensions enriches our Tai Chi with deeper understanding'.
