The Sparrow's Tale: T'ai Chi Stories To Inspire

    Johan Onvlee and Amy Shapiro show how the practice of T'ai Chi transforms real lives, through true stories drawn from a century of combined experience. Tales of Jo Onvlee (Johan's father and Amy's first T'ai Chi teacher & co-author of two I Ching books), plus tales from Amy's time with John Chung Li and as a teacher herself, show how this ancient Chinese art enhances health, relationships and one's outlook. Includes photos, instructions, plus appearances by a magical sparrow, and "Embrace Tiger" by Jo Onvlee. REVIEWER COMMENTS: “This book, The Sparrow's Tale, is a lovely and elegant story of how Tai Chi changed people's lives around the world by improving their mental and emotional health. But, it is so much more than that. It is a spiritual journey into the depths of these profound internal arts, on how they enable us to relax out of the way of our hidden power and limitlessly expanding energetic nature, so that this true nature can shine through us -- and in effect, change the world for the better. WOW! But, even beyond that, it offers brilliant practical ways to help students open their eyes to this energetic nature of our being, that can be profoundly beneficial to any teacher of any style of Tai Chi or Qigong. Thank you Amy and Johan for this unique and brilliant contribution to the Tai Chi and Qigong family--and for your own journey that has made a better world for all of us. We hope everyone reads this book. It will inspire them, and expand their view of these arts beyond the physical benefits, to something truly life altering on all levels.” -- Bill Douglas, and Angela Wong-Douglas, Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, 2009 Inductees to the Internal Arts Hall of Fame in NY, and best-selling authors of “The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & QiGong.”
