Tango my Life, April 15, 2023
Last Saturday, I left Buenos Aires, but my heart is still there. Christine Eydoux, who is still in Buenos Aires until early May, sends me daily updates about milongas. Every night before I go to sleep, I think about how happy I felt when I danced in milongas.
When I returned home, I wasn't feeling my best, but despite that, I can say the trip was emotional and inspiring. I was warmly greeted by old friends, and I felt inspired to continue my Tango Zen project.
One thing that keeps lingering in my head is the surprise I felt when I discovered I have a fan club in Buenos Aires. People asked me to autograph my book Tango Zen at milongas, while others approached me to compliment the Tango Zen workshop or classes they had taken over twelve years ago. It was mind-blowing!
Christine and I talked about it, and she said, "You know, Chan, that your tango and Tango Zen journey has changed a lot of people's lives. It's not just about the steps; it's also about the connection, mindfulness, and presence on the dance floor. You have made a difference in people's lives."
Christine's words moved me deeply, and I realized that Tango Zen is more than just a project; it's a calling. So, I decided to offer a Tango Zen weekend workshop and four weekly classes when I go back to Buenos Aires in November. I want to share my journey and help others find their own path to mindfulness and presence on the dance floor.
If you happen to know of any space suitable for the workshop and classes in Buenos Aires, please share the information with me.
