Tai Chi Coordinates: 13 Points of Power
Tai Chi Coordinates is a process to help you locate yourself in space for your Tai Chi practice to match up your energy body with your physical body.
The ’13 Points of Power’ process introduces an energetic anatomical matrix in which to discover intentional movement. The 13 Points of Power begins with standing to locate one’s “self” and co-ordinate the physical body with one’s energetic system. Then we can move is such a way as to match our energetic system with our physical bodies for increased coordination and flow.
“It’s a sensitive and quiet practice where one can really attune one’s inner senses. In doing so, boundaries become clear, our innate connection to nature is renewed, and health is refreshed. Every single person I’ve taught this to gets it.” ~ Jamee
