The leading proponent in America of the Wu style discusses the spiritual and aesthetic meanings of t'ai chi ch'uan.
In her previous book, T'ai-Chi Ch'uan: Body and Mind in Harmony: The Integration of Meaning and Method, Sophia Delza describes the Wu Style with careful directions and illustrations for learning the practice of the exercise-art of T'ai-Chi Ch'uan. In this new book, Ms. Delza, the leading proponent in the United States of the Wu Style, offers succinct and illuminating comments from her viewpoint as both teacher and practitioner. She expresses the substance and function of T'ai-Chi Ch'uan that lie behind the movement and that are manifest in the movement to only the most discerning eye. She provides insight and inspiration for entering into a path, a way, a dao, that integrates body, mind, beauty, and goodness. Those students beginning to study T'ai-Chi Ch'uan and those who have studied it for a number of years will benefit equally from the guidance provided in this book.
Sophia Delza is a master of T'ai-Chi Ch'uan and was Director of the First School of T'ai-Chi Ch'uan in the United States.
