T'ai-chi (Tai Chi) is an effortless and rhythmical art that stresses slow breathing, balanced and relaxed postures, and absolute calmness of mind. It requires no special equipment or place to practice and takes no more than ten minutes a day. This book organizes and presents the author’s notes collected over a period of some twenty years, making for the first time his thoughts and approach to t’ai chi available to a wider community. Following Taoist ontology, the book contains detailed and advanced guidance on the internal qualities of t'ai chi at the three levels of Body, Chi, and Mind-Spirit (Shen). Additionally, the book contains guidance on those internal qualities to be cultivated in the practice of ‘pushing hands’ which lead to deeper levels of t’ai chi skill. With an emphasis on the desired qualities of Shen for personal and spiritual development, the influence of the author’s Buddhist practice is clear. Dip into the book, enjoy and contemplate. These are words of wisdom from an uncommonly gifted t’ai chi practitioner based on a lifetime of sincere practice and direct perception.
