This book about Taï Ji Quan is amazing, because it is written by a Master of Chi who details what underlies this discipline and who also shows us what makes it an art. But, don't be misled. Behind words that might seem sacrilegious, you will recognise the wisdom of a true traditional teaching and the humility of a great Master. In fact, this book is a tribute to life. The real one, the only one.
A testimony that urgently needs to be listened to. As Michèle Stévanovitch affirms in the introduction: " Re-learning to listen to life in one’s self. To re-discover the evidence of relationships between the living. Accepting that the essential be simple. The joy of living is worked with muscles, with breath, with movement that is centred and carried by Chi. "
Vlady Stévanovitch, who died in 2005, created the "Méthode Stévanovitch" particularly suited to Westerners. L’Art du Chi that is taught there involves specific body techniques including both floorwork and standing movement.
On the floor, traditional energy work is sometimes supported by " Chi-carrying sounds ", sounds that result from his discoveries about Chi and its reproduction.
In motion, three forms of Taï Ji Quan and Qi Gong exercises.
Vlady Stévanovich has published many other books available at the School of the Inner Way. He is also the author of another reference work, "The Way of energy", published by Stévanovitch editions.
