Chi is the vital force.

T'ai Chi is a synonym for "Tao" which is usually translated as "Supreme Ultimate" or "The Way". It is a Chinese word for Reality, seen by Chinese sages as a moving force, a flowing stream with which we should accord.

 
 

"A long-time practitioner of T'ai Chi Chih will know well w hat the ancients meant when they said, 'To unite the Divine Energy within me with the Universal Energy: that is the goal!" -Justin Stone, T'ai Chi Chih

Principles of T'ai Chi Chih: 

  • Softness and Continuity
  • Circularity
  • Flow from the Center
  • Polarity
  • Focus in the Soles of the Feet
  • Yinning and Yangings

Yin and Yang:

These are the elements we refer to when we speak of balancing this Intrinsic Energy. Yin and Yang can be called the negative and the positive, the receptive and the creative, the cold and the hot, the insubstantial and the substantial, the feminine and the masculine, etc. - the forces of the two polarities.
