This booklet gives a clear, step-by-step instructions for learning Tai Chi Chi Kung I – a simple yet powerful early form of Yang -style Tai Chi. It also reveals the Taoist principles and deep, internal work necessary for the effective practice of any form of Tai Chi. The Tai Chi Chi kung I booklet is designed for tai Chi practitioners of all levels. Stripping away the unnecessary mystery surrounding Tai Chi, taoist Master Mantak Chia demonstrates, with the help of several colored and detailed illustrations, the relationship of the inner structure of Tai Chi to the absorption,transformation and circulation of the three Forces or energies — the Universal Force, the Cosmic Force, and the Earth Force — that enliven us. The author shows us how to find a new and vital relationship to these forces, not only while practicing Tai Chi, but also in the midst of our everyday lives.
