Lee's Latest Translation Effort

I recently finished a translation of the 3rd Treatise: Concentrate Qi, Achieve Softness from Professor Cheng's 13 Treatises.

This one sprawls all over the place: Daoist Internal Alchemy, Laozi discussions, Yijing hexagrams. All part of concentrating qi to achieve softness with the method of sinking qi to the dantian.

You can find all my translations on the Translations page.

The Yang Family Eight Word Formula, freshly translated into Spanish thanks to J Félix Fernández.

Curriculum

We base our work at Rocky Mountain Tai Chi on the "practice tripod" defined by Professor Cheng: form, push hands, and sword.

We also incorporate practice of various qigong sets, fundamental drills, standing meditation, and internal work.

Tai Chi Elements at Cancer Center

On Friday mornings, we work with cancer patients at the Cancer Center at Boulder Community Hospital. It's a great opportunity for us to help people by sharing the art and its benefits.  This class is open to anyone dealing with cancer treatment whether at BCH or other facilities. Click here to see the BCH flyer.
