Reviews
"What a gift! One of China's great alchemists of the mind staying in my house. Just in time for my next eighty years."
--Red Pine

"This crystal-clear translation tells the truth: there is no shortcut, no hocus-pocus, and nothing to gain on our journey to Tao--only true practice to uncover what we've always possessed."
--Waysun Liao, author of T'ai Chi Classics

"Huang Yuanji's care for students' cultivation is simultaneously as a fierce coach as well as a wise and seasoned mentor. Ge Guolong further elucidates with relatable modern examples and an adept's experience. Fresh and grounded in the body, both teachers query students to dissolve illusions and return to the fundamental nature of now."
--Sally Chang, chief instructor, Evergreen Taiji Academy
