T'ai Chi Touchstones: Yang Family Secret Transmissions (New)
by Wile, Douglas, editor
Book ID: 9780912059013, 091205901X
Usually available in 1-2 weeks
Three generations of Yang family masters lifted the art of T'ai-chi ch'uan from a closed courtyard in the Honan Province to the status of a national treasure and made of it, like India's yoga, a gift to the world. Yang Lu-ch'an in the nineteenth century, fllowed by his sons and their sons, have given T'ai-chi ch'uan the theoretical and practical standard which still defines and shapes the art for a majority of practitioners today. This book draws together the written and photographic record of their teachings, a legacy spanning more than fifty years of published material. The contents include oral instruction, mnemonic verses and training songs, commentaries to the T'ai-chi Classics, essays, autobiography, and family legends, much of which have not been previously translated. 159 pages

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
