Although it bears a visual similarity to T’ai Chi Ch’uan, the martial art, and is also derived from Qi Gong, T’ai Chi Chih (which means “Knowledge of the Supreme Ultimate”) is a moving meditation designed to activate, circulate, and balance Chi. Here in the West although we understand from Physics that the basis of everything is energy, we give little credence to the concept of “Chi.” But in all of the most ancient cultures Chi is simply accepted as the universal connection that binds us together AND BALANCING CHI HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONSIDERED THE GREAT SECRET OF A LONG, HEALTHY, HAPPY LIFE.
Unlike T’ai Chi Ch’uan (or any of the martial arts), T’AI CHI CHIH IS EASY TO LEARN, HAS NO AGE LIMITATION, AND DOESN’T REQUIRE A PARTICULAR LEVEL OF PHYSICAL FITNESS OR COORDINATION! Consisting of only 20 movements, TCC attracts the widest possible audience because even those with physical limitations can participate, performing the movements while seated (with some modification)… paraplegics can practice right from their wheelchairs and advanced students have reported feeling the same benefits by simply visualizing the movements in their heads! No special clothing or equipment is required and the slow, soft movements have an almost immediate effect on blood pressure and other physical aspects…everyone’s experience is different, but most students feel more far-reaching effects of the practice so quickly that PROFOUND changes in both physical and mental health can occur even during an 9-week Beginner’s course! (Click here for info on current classes.)
Because T’ai Chi Chih has demonstrated its effectiveness in at least twelve controlled trials over a twenty-year period, the Arthritis Foundation, the American Medical Association, The Mayo Clinic, and other well-known and respected health & wellness authorities have all endorsed T’ai Chi Chih as an evidence-based mindfulness practice and therefore a viable treatment option (potentially more effective than medication) for various physiological and psychological conditions.
