Reviews

"Bruce Frantzis is the successor and inheritor of Lao Tse's Water method of Taoist meditation passed down by his teacher, Liu Hung Chieh. Frantzis presents a uniquely experiential approach to the I Ching as a living manual on how change manifests at all levels of existence. Frantzis' ability to communicate his comprehensive understanding of the health, fighting and meditation aspects of bagua allows the student to experience in body, mind and spirit the profound embodied wisdom of the I Ching's spiritual vision." --Alan Peatfield, PhD, Lecturer in Archaeology at University College Dublin, Ireland

"While martial arts was initially founded in self-defense, it has proved an avenue to the calm that we all seek. Bagua and Tai Chi: Exploring the Potential of Chi, Martial Arts, Meditation, and the I Ching is a study of these disciplines, as Bruce Frantzis relays the teachings from Lineage Master Liu Hung in how to use Tai Chi and Bagua to embrace greater health, clear one's mind, find relaxation, and even how to use it for defensive purposes. Bagua and Tai Chi is an intriguing pick for those who enjoy the martial arts for any self-improvement purposes." --Midwest Book Review
