Review of The Tao of Tai Chi: The Making of a New Science by Bill Douglas
This book has been lauded by mind-body and Tai Chi experts around the world as: “visionary,” “magical,” “a book the world has long needed,” a book with “universal implications,” “a book you can contemplate and read again and again,” “a tectonic shifting point for the realization of love and compassion in the world,” a “wonderful book that will obviously impact the world,” “connecting art, philosophy, and science with the simple elegance of an opening flower.” Its author is a global organizer, the Founder of a global health education event celebrated annually in over 80 nations, known as World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, and World Healing Day.
You may have read books on Taoism or Taoist philosophy before that inspire and expand your mind. What makes The Tao of Tai Chi: The Making of a New Science such a stunning work and must read is that it does not just talk the talk. Its author has literally transformed the planet by following the tenets of Taoism, and shares in this book not only how it happened to him, but how it can profoundly unfold the greatness trying to bloom through you and your life – and he assures you, and builds a solid science based case that this can happen. His nearly 60 year journey of the mind and spirit, involving travels around the world and experiences that some would call miracles, and his practical globally known impact on governments and institutions worldwide, is a stunningly entertaining story, as well as a cosmic how-to book that can shift you, your life, and the world around you.
The Tao of Tai Chi: The Making of a New Science is a profound story of how one man used Tai Chi and Internal Arts as a model for following the prescriptions of the ancient Chinese seminal book on Taoism, the Tao te Ching, to not only transform his life, but to actually have a massive healing impact worldwide. Yet, it is far from one man’s story. It is a book showing how the ancient book of Chinese philosophy, the Tao te Ching, can be a guide for everyone, and how Tai Chi and Qigong mind-body sciences can not only profoundly improve one’s health, but can be powerful tools to learn how to navigate the Tao, the Way of the Universe, as described in the Tao te Ching.
This book elegantly weaves science, spirituality, and real world events that will leave you profoundly excited about the future of humanity. It offers down to earth, practical self-help tips on how Tai Chi, Qigong, and mind-body practices can improve performance, health, mental acuity, and productivity. Yet, with the turn of a page, soars into descriptions of amazing other-worldly events the author experienced that will raise the hair on your arms and fill your heart and mind with wonder and awe. And then with the turn of another page you will find a logical science based explanation of these mystical occurrences that will leave you with an electric feeling that spirituality and science are not that far apart, and that blurring of the lines may by painting a hopeful future for all of us, a future more beautiful and auspicious than you have ever dared to dream could be possible.... - Amazon Review
