Tai Chi Definition

posted 12 May 2014, 08:32 by Sean Barkes

Tai Chi Chuan is the constant striving to find the 'supreme ultimate' way of holding one's body, in movement or stillness, a posture that is supreme in sustaining life's function. It is a process, not a destination, a constant refinement for body and mind. The Tai Chi Chuan proponent is repeatedly pitted against their monkey mind, tempting them to give up. Their repeated refusal to give up and strive onward to perfection refines their character and their ability to meet life's challenges with a positive mental attitude.
