From the Author:

My video program and DVD program - T'ai Chi and Qigong: The Prescription for the Future - and - Anthology of T'ai Chi and Qigong: The Prescription for the Future - has been rated EXCELLENT by Book List Magazine. It provides a rich compliment to the books highly acclaimed instructional graphics. Video allows you to see the speed of the movements, as well as the timing on breathing techniques in conjunction with motion. Also, the detailed explanations of the book will enable your mind to relax out of the way so that when listening to the video's audio instructions your analytical mind will understand what is happening and be able to deeply relax into the physical motions and seated relaxation therapy.
