[2014 Brochure]

Subject: Fall 2013 Tai Chi class in Dillon Hello Everyone, Master Wonchull Park will be teaching a Tai Chi class at Dillon Gym this fall (see description below). The goal is to achieve peak performance through deep relaxation of mind and body. Fall class starts on Sept. 25, with a free trial class on Sept. 18. Everyone is encouraged to attend. The PU Tai Chi Club brochure has additional info on this and other Tai Chi classes, and you can forward it to anyone who might be interested in. Online registration is now open: http://www.princeton.edu/campusrec/ If you have any questions, please let us know. Best, Sara SVANTOUR@Princeton.EDU ======================================================== Class: Tai Chi Sept 25 - Nov. 20 (Wednesdays, 8-9:30 PM, Dillon Gym) Students will learn a way to achieve deeper comfort and higher performance in all activities, through both traditional and scientific understanding. Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art and health exercise based on Taoist philosophy that emphasizes deep relaxation of mind and body. The form practice helps one to achieve this by developing greater awareness of 'here and now'. Through self-defense applications, students can experience how deep relaxation leads to optimal action, and can apply this idea to other physical disciplines and to enhance everyday life. Because it does not rely on brute force, Tai Chi is a rare example of an art of self-defense that can be used effectively against physically much stronger opponents. ========================================================= Subject: Free Summer Tai Chi Class: Meditation in Action As the forwarded email below from Dean Matt Weiner describes, the Office of Religious Life is hosting a summer class in Tai Chi - Meditation in Action. (The free Sunday Tai Chi classes at 10 AM at the Carl Fields Center also continue as usual.) - PU Tai Chi Club ----- Dear Friends, The Office of Religious Life is hosting a summer class in Tai Chi, with the Tai Chi Master, Wonchull Park. The course will take place on Thursdays, 5:00pm - 6:15pm, in the West Room of Murray Dodge Hall. It begins on June 6th. The class is free, but open for Princeton students and staff only.** We highly recommend this class for everyone interested in health and well being, but especially for those of you interested in yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. Tai Chi is a form of Taoist meditation and exercise. I have personally learned a great deal from Master Park's teachings. - Dean Matt For more information, please see the class description below, and the attached brochure on Master Park and his classes. Class Title: Tai Chi - Meditation in Action Time and Place: Thursdays, 5:00pm to 6:15pm, Murray-Dodge Hall Class Description: Tai Chi is a health exercise, martial art, and meditation method based on Taoist philosophy. Different traditions use various meditation practices to achieve better perception of reality through quieting the mind. In Tai Chi, meditation is practiced sitting, standing, and while moving and can thus be applied to any situation in life. This helps one achieve better performance in one's activities and can enhance creativity, health, and power in martial arts. In addition to the mind-body approach of awareness practice, Tai Chi also uses a body-qi-mind approach which recognizes that a healthy body supports a healthy mind. For this reason, Tai Chi is often called moving meditation. Just as Bodhidharma created martial arts to improve the health of monks, Tai Chi is also a good exercise complement to other meditation methods. ** Those of you who are not Princeton students or staff arevery welcometo take Master Park's other class, Sundays, 10:00am - 12:00pm, at the Carl Fields Center (You can ask him questions atwpark@princeton.edu).

Taichi is both Taoist-Yoga and a Martial art. In this course, rather than
practising Taichi in a martial arts context that is more challenging to
learn, we will study Taichi as Taoist-Yoga to reach a deep understanding
of relaxation in action. This course also serves as a preparatory course
for people interested in martial arts aspects.

"Tai Chi for Self-Defense and Health"
Tai Chi is a traditional, true martial art. Because the power and speed are achieved through the natural relaxed state of mind-body and optimal body alignment, Tai Chi is also known for its health benefits. This course focuses on both these aspects. The study of self-defense applications such as push-hands, chunjing (one-inch punch), and chinna (joint locking and escape), will be used to help one to understand and achieve relaxation and good posture. Tai Chi is a rare example of an art of self-defense that can be used effectively by both women and men, because it does not rely on brute force for its effectiveness. Tai Chi training is also useful for practitioners of other physical disciplines, such as other martial arts, dancing, and various sports, as it allows one to gain a deep insight into body alignment and relaxation.
