A Potter's Notes on Tai Chi Chuan
By Margaret Emerson. 75 pages, paperback. Margaret Emerson draws on sixteen years as a professional potter and nine years of studying Tai Chi to show what the process of making art and the practice of moving meditation have in common--and what they can teach us about an approach to life. The author spent six years with her original teacher, Kao Ching-hua, who learned the art in pre-Revolutionary China. Kao always emphasized the practical applications of Tai Chi Chuan.
