Chungliang Al Huang
teaches Tai Ji philosophy, East/West synthesis, and the art of movement meditation. He is the founder-president of the Living Tao Foundation and director of Lan Ting Institute in the Sacred Mountains of China. He is the bestselling author of numerous books including Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain and Tao: The Watercourse Way, coauthored with Alan Watts.
In Asian culture, the philosophy of “play” is always at the underlying core of “serious” living. During this workshop participants will be taught the essential Tai Ji metaphors and movement motifs as recipes and tools to explore, enhance, and enjoy the creative process in everyday living. To follow the Way (Tao) is not difficult if we can get out of our own way, allowing the improvisation of nature’s flowing guidance along the way, composing and choreographing the “music and dance” of our day-by-day autobiography-in-progress.
For more than three decades, Amory Lovins and Chungliang Al Huang have shared a special kinship in the natural wisdom of the ineffable Tao. As pioneers in their individual paths, they continue to merge in their shared living philosophy and way of being. Many years ago, in a collaboration between Lovins's Rocky Mountain Institute and Huang's Living Tao Foundation, a calligraphic poster was created of “The Tao of Leadership,” based on Verse 17 from Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching. Now it is a collector’s gem gracing the walls of executive offices around the world.
