An Invitation to Tai Chi Wellness
“World peace comes from world health. When you feel better, you are kinder, friendlier, more cooperative. It is that simple.” – Master Peng
Those were the words of my father Tai Chi Master Peng who devoted his life to promoting peace as a diplomat from China and then as a Tai Chi teacher. They are my words now to honor his philosophy and fulfill his legacy. I am his daughter/his student/his disciple. He gave me the gift of this wholistic exercise to share and create as many healthy people as possible.
