Taichi: The Cosmic Dance of Energy at Creative Karachi Festival 2019


Taichi or Taiji Chuan is an ancient Martial Art (Wushu), Meditation System and Healing Practice from China. In Mandarin Chinese language ‘Taiji’ refers to the Supreme Oneness of Being from which the twin forces of Yin and Yang originate. ‘Chuan’ means ‘Fist’ or ‘Boxing’.
Chi Gong (Chi Kung) is a holistic system of coordinated body movement, breath, stretching and meditation used for Preventive Medicine, Self-Healing and Self-Cultivation. ‘Chi’ refers to the ‘Life Energy’ and ‘Gung’ or ‘Kung’ means ‘Cultivation’.

Taichi can equally be used as an effective fighting style, though the primary purpose of Taichi and Chi Gong is self-cultivation and awareness in every aspect of one’s life. As such it is as beneficial for small children as it is for elderly people. The benefits of Taichi and Chi Gong have proved to reverse the effects of most physical and mental ailments in the human body, and its practice is encouraged around the world as a highly effective form of alternate and preventive medicine. Therefore Taichi is often used by other Kung Fu practitioners around the world to complement and enhance their skills.
