Tai Chi Theory and Principal Precepts
Tai chi is the preeminent mind-body exercise and practice. Using the theory and fundamental teachings of this book, the practitioner will achieve better health in body and mind. The book presents a thorough yet concise examination of the principal precepts of the art, furnishing the theory and practice of tai chi with a fresh perspective. This is not a "how to" book that shows postures of tai chi. There are hundreds of such books available on the market. This book instead deals with concepts such as mindfulness, movement of qi, the generation of jin, the interaction of jing, qi, and shen, proprioception, the mind-body connection, and development of gongfu.
In a unique approach, the ancient Chinese concepts are explained in a concise and understandable compilation of Seven Principal Precepts, using modern Western explication to make the terms accessible.
