This book is unique in that it explains in plain English the spiritual, healing, and meditational aspects of Tai Chi. It is therefore an ideal book for those people new to Tai Chi, and those who have had more experience. There are many books on Tai Chi. The vast majority focus on 'How To' perform the basic moves. A few delve into the inscrutable Chinese concepts underlying Tai Chi, which often leave westerners even more confused. This book is unique in that it explains in plain English the spiritual, healing, and meditational aspects of Tai Chi. This book explains the 'Why ?' to the 'How To', and so is an ideal book for beginners. . At the same time it is the long awaited book for those already learning Tai Chi, who up till now now have been denied a book such as this. Tai Chi is a form of moving meditation, healing exercise, and spiritual discipline, and this book therefore appeals to a wide range of New Age and Alternative Therapy enquirers. Tai Chi is far more than a form of self defense. The Chinese mystics who created Tai Chi,placed within it all their ancient wisdom and meditational practices. They then placed the Tai Chi movements in order to create a sequence called the Form. The Form is a complete spiritual program, which takes a person on a journey from Grounding to Enlightenment. This book takes the reader on this spiritual journey, and so reveals the secrets of these ancient sages.

George Avalon has studied Tai Chi for over thirty years, and this book is the culmination of this study. Like many young men of his generation, George's Tai Chi study came out of martial arts, where he gained Black Belts in Karate and Kick Boxing. Under the direction of an eminent Tai Chi master, George studied the original Yang Form of Yang Cheng Fu. His understanding of Tai Chi was strengthened by his B A Degree, where George studied the philosophical and spiritual concepts underlying it. While physical Form and philosophy are essential to the study of Tai Chi, the true wisdom of Tai Chi lies in the living experience of it. Descended from generations of spiritual seekers, and being a spiritual healer himself, George brings to life this highly spiritual discipline. George teaches Tai Chi in Glastonbury, Somerset, England, as well as holding courses and workshops around the UK and beyond. On his website at http://www.taichispiritualway.co.uk/ you can find out about his current classes, workshops and courses; see colour versions of the pictures in this book; and subscribe to his e-newsletter.
