In 2002 looking for a mental and physical break from his job. Paul started studying Chen style Tai Chi and Chi Gung at Stratford-upon-Avon College under the guidance of Debbie Wild of the Swan School of Tai Chi and Chi Gung.

We came whirling out of nothingness

scattering the stars like dust.

The stars formed a circle

and in the middle...

We Dance
