repetitive movements and one pose. A faithful practice of T’ai Chi Chih allows us to touch the core of our very being, connecting with the essence of who we truly are. The flow and balancing of the chi removes blockages: physical, emotional and spiritual. The stillness allows us to feel and see clearly. Awareness awakens.
This is the essence of T’ai Chi Chih.

Where did TCC begin ?
T’ai Chi Chih was originated in 1974 by a T’ai Chi Ch’uan Master, Justin Stone. He found the ancient form of T’ai Chi Ch’uan difficult for students, requiring years of practice to benefit from it.
He began experimenting with simple movement with benefits realized in weeks instead of years. The result, T’ai Chi Chih.
Awareness is the root of T’ai Chi Chih. Circularity is the fundamental. Softness and continuity are the essence. Love energy is the fruit. ~ Justin Stone
