Samenvatting:
T’ai Chi Ch’uan and I Ching

T’ai Chi Ch’uan is a form of Chinese gymnastics based on concepts stemming from the I Ching and Taism.
It is an age-old exercise art for relaxation and seld-defence, which promotes mental as well as physical well-being, and many people believe it can contribute to a beter and happier life in today’s competitive society.
This careful and helpful guide is designed for all those who want to know and follow a Chinese way to health of body and depth of mind.
The second edition contains a new chapter on the waxing and waning of Ch’ien and K’un, and gives detaild descriptions of each movement.
Illustrated by seventy-four photographs.

The author explains the connections between T’ai Chi Ch’uan and the I Ching showing that each T’ai Chi movement is related to a particular hexagram of the I Ching.
He points out that togethet the I Ching an T’ai Chi Ch’uan are the keys by witch the theoretical philosophy of Taoism can be converted to a practical way of Knowledge.

The exercises teach physical balance and co-ordination, and stimulate breathing, so that the student becomes physically and inwardly centred.
With T’ai Chi Ch’uan an individual can become attuned to the ever-flowing changes of earth and heaven – the yielding and firmness of yin and yang.
As the individual masters these movements, he or she will understand that the outward movements of a healthy body come naturally from a disciplined, enlightened mind.
