A Talk On Taiji – The Philosophy of Yin Yang

Chungliang Al Huang gives an interesting lecture at TEDx Hendrix College on “Taiji” – the philosophy of the yin and the yang, which the art of Tai Chi Chuan is based upon. Huang uses calligraphy to paint five key Chinese characters and then he discusses their place in the interaction of yin and yang. Chungliang Al Huang also gets the audience involved by leading them through Tai Chi movements to understand the key concepts of how the yin and yang are incorporated in our lives.

Chungliang Al Huang is an internationally-acclaimed Tao master, as well as a philosopher, performing artist, and teacher of Tai Chi. He is the founder and president of the Living Tao Foundation and is the author of several books.

His 1973 book (below) “Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain” is well known to seasoned Tai Chi practitioners and has since been translated into 14 different languages.
