Written with passion and eloquence, this book richly conveys the subtle yet profound principles underlying Tai Ji. Movement, stillness, joyfulness, and the ability to live in the moment are the threads running through this text, along with the humour and compassion that comes from acknowledging the impossibility of human perfection. Containing the original foreword by Alan W. Watts, this book is illustrated with beautiful calligraphy by the author and photographs by Si Chi Ko.
