Mind-Body Connections in Chen Xin’s Illustrated Explanation of Chen Style Taijiquan

By Miriam O’Conner, M.A.




Mind-Body Connections in Chen Xin’s Illustrated Explanation of Chen Style Taijiquan

Chen Xin’s book is associated with the Chen family transmission of taijiquan and discusses the art’s conceptual background. Although the book is hardly satisfying as a coherent synthesis of metaphysical and martial art, it contributes to taiji’s literary tradition, and has helped establish the Chen clan’s role as central in taijiquan history.
