Welcome to TaiChi Arts
This site reflects my 45+ years of study of the Healing and Martial Arts of China, India, Japan, Korea, and the United States. As I study and practice, I record and publish what I learn. New knowledge supplants the old as I progress, so what I offer here represents my present approach to the Internal Arts. I have three current books, each providing a slightly different practice using a common set of principles (all books available on Amazon).
Just Listen…the Magic of the Internal Arts. The Just Listen book provides a concise explanation of Internal Principles and how those principles can be trained. It is the simplest and most direct book I have written and reflects my current approach to my own practice. Although simple, this direct approach is not easy. It requires the same dedication as any Internal system.
The Eight Pieces of Brocade (Ba Duan Jin Qigong). The Ba Duan Jin book details what is probably the world’s most popular qigong routine. The routine is short and easy to learn. My explanations include the body’s channel/vessel system and the acupuncture points – something not normally covered in many texts. It is a resource for those that want a basic all-around health improvement routine.
Wild Goose Qigong – An Internal Art. The Wild Goose book covers an introduction to an extensive system of over 70 forms and meditations. The Wild Goose (Dayan) system is over 1800 years old and very detailed. My explanations cover eleven forms and meditations in greater detail than any other current English publication. It also includes many valuable translations from the Chinese texts of the Grand Masters of the system. It is a great resource for those wanting a deep dive into Chinese qigong.
These three books and all my writings on this site are based on the same internal principles. Any of the books can be an effective learning tool. I hope there is something here for everyone.
I suggest that students begin with one of these books and self-guided study. If questions arise during your studies, feel free to contact me through Facebook posts or Facebook Messenger.
