T'ai Chi Chi Kung Description
After covering the underlying principles of t'ai chi and how they fit together, and explaining the link between t'ai chi and chi kung (in which, as the author puts it, chi kung represents the roots and t'ai chi the trunk of the tree of knowledge of "chi" - energy - healing) this book provides step-by-step instruction on t'ai chi exercises as a series. It also describes how an individual exercise can have specific benefits, such as "letting go of self-criticism and accepting yourself as you are" or "learning the art of receiving and giving with love".
'On the back' of T'ai Chi Chi Kung
If T'ai-Chi is the trunk of the tree of knowledge of chi (energy) healing, then Chi Kung represents the roots, and neither can flourish without the other.
T'ai-Chi Chi Kung teaches the complete beginner - adult or child - how to develop both the roots and the trunk of this tree, through an understanding of the fundamental principles of T'ai-Chi and Chi Kung. The fifteen exercises - eight T'ai-Chi and seven Chi Kung - combine elements of these ancient Chinese arts with other Taoist principles. According to the Tao of colour, each exercise is related to a colour and each colour to an emotion: thus green represents harmony and orange stands for joy and vitality. In the eighth T'ai-Chi exercise, the first seven principles come together in a Rainbow Fountain of Joy.
The exercises can be practised individually or as a whole, for as little as five minutes a day. Some are ideal for the end of a stressful day; others can be done on a crowded bus or train on the way to work; some will particularly uplift the spirit if performed out of doors on a sunny day. The principles of T'ai-Chi and Chi Kung can even be applied to the routine tasks of daily life such as ironing and typing. The aim is to achieve a balance of heart, body, mind and spirit, promoting self-esteem and self development in a happier and healthier body.
