Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While t'ai chi ch'uan as physical exercise is relatively well known in this country, as meditative discipline it is less so. Here Da Liu, president of the T'ai Chi Ch'uan Society of New York, provides both an exposition of the history and philosophy of this ancient practice and a guide to the methods of meditation, breathing, and concentration useful for the practitioner. Although the book is not conceived as a manual on t'ai chi itself, it does provide rudimentary instructions. Westerners may take issue with such claims as immortality that may be obtained through Taoist disciplines, but this book offers general or informed readers an accessible introduction to a distinctive form of Eastern spiritual practice. Suitable for public libraries and collections on meditation; illustrations not seen. Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
