Internal Arts of
Tai Chi, Chi Kung, and Taoist Meditation
Ancient Chinese culture had a way of talking about the infinite mystery of life. They referred to it as the Tao, or the Way of Nature. It wasn’t something that could be concretely grasped intellectually. It was beyond comprehension. It simply was the way it was. Despite the mystery, they were able to develop ways of working and engaging with it to experience it more clearly, to be in harmony with it, and to be one with it. These practices were the Internal Arts. Over thousands of years, they pragmatically cultivated techniques that developed a human’s ability to experience the way of Nature more deeply in their mind, body and being.
Today these arts continue to be practiced all over the world, promoting greater health and vitality in people of all ages. With time, a practitioner begins to develop greater strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, focus, relaxation and comfort in their bodies and lives. These are symptoms of being in greater alignment with the Tao.
