The Internal Structure of Cloud Hands offers readers an in-depth look into the art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan via the practice of Cloud Hands, a foundational exercise common to all schools of this popular martial art. Part theoretical treatise, part training manual, this book facilitates a deeper understanding of "internal" movement and training for students of T'ai Chi and other internal martial arts. Step-by-step exercises help to bring the theoretical into concrete practice and application. Author Robert E.

Intermediate and advanced practitioners will discover a deeply interconnected world of practice; beginning students will learn basic training methods that can help them bypass years of incomplete training and erase incorrect habits already formed. Tangora also stresses the importance of meditation and its crucial relationship to the art's health and martial aspects, as well as how to use the spine to integrate movements--especially important for practitioners with back problems who wish to learn how to move without inducing pain. Readers will learn to: * Cultivate internal power * Discover the inner workings of Tai Chi Ch'uan * Understand the meaning of the T'ai Chi classics * Move without injury * Relieve back pain

Thinking for a Change: Discovering the Power to Create, Communicate and Lead

by Michael J. Gelb

Michael J. Gelb is the world's leading authority on the application of genius thinking to personal and organizational development. He shows you how to rethink the way you think by helping you discover your natural ability to create, communicate, and lead in every area of your life-from designing a dinner party to mapping out your life goals, from running a more effective business meeting to improving memory and increasing your creative power. Thinking for a Change unveils fresh strategies for thriving on change and increasing productivity through synvergent thinking, the art of balancing logic and imagination, reason and intuition. It is a way of seeing the whole picture by integrating the larger elements and the details. It is the ability to entertain multiple pairs of seemingly opposite ideas simultaneously. Thinking for a Change also teaches readers how to facilitate the mind's ability to link disparate ideas. This process of association is the basis for the skill of mind mapping, a method-originated by British psychologist Tony Buzan- that improves the organization of ideas and encourages synvergent thinking. Based on a practical understanding of the structure and design of the human brain, and research into the thinking patterns of history's great achievers such as Darwin, Edison, and Leonardo da Vinci, mind mapping unleashes your ability to generate new ideas quickly and organize them effectively. In today's global marketplace everyone from retailers and restaurateurs to computer consultants and communications companies are restructuring, reengineering, and reinventing themselves. In a world of accelerating change, individuals and organizations can no longer afford to approach information-age problems and opportunities with industrial-age thinking skills. A more fulfilling life, a stronger organization, a saner society-they all start with your thinking, your actions, and your courage. So it's time to begin Thinking for a Change.
