This book and the previous aposWarriors of Stillnessapos investigates the relationship between the Chinese meditative and martial arts. They are an account of a personal investigation into the three major meditative traditions in the Chinese martial arts: Taijiquan, Hsingyiquan, and Baguazhang. These arts can be thought of as sharing mutual points of departure and arrival, while differing in their means of transport. All three begin with stillness meditation as the cornerstone of their practice. They differ in the movements that derive from this stillness. But ultimately, in martial application, all these movements, like waves of the ocean, submerge again into a higher-level stillness. In aposWarriors of Stillnessapos the author presented the theory, practice and applications of standing meditation (wuji qigong) taught to him by his teacher Cai Songfang, as it relates to the movement of the Yang family style Taijiquan system. In this book, The Tao of Yi Quan, the theory, practice and applications of standing meditation of the Yiquan branch of the Xingyiquan system is presented. The uniqueness of the internal family schools of Taijiquan, Xingyiquan, and Baguazhang is not that only these schools produce masters of stillness. Rather, their uniqueness lies in the fact that right from the beginning they make the end product of the developmental process, stillness and awareness, the fundamental practice of their disciplines.
