When was the last time you thought about the way in which you made choices in your life? What instructs you to choose one course of action over another? Chinese people have known for a long time that we have an internal compass, our heart, which guides us in all aspects of our life. We have the innate ability to feel if something is favorable or good for us.

Illness and injury prevention is core to Tai Chi and QiGong. The most basic aspects of the practice are an invitation to understanding what influences daily, seasonal and yearly changes. Our habits, patterns and tendencies can be observed over short, medium and long term periods of time, and will reflect a deeper way to cultivate wellness. Learning to study ourselves, and question our reactions or responses, helps us consider the small changes needed for daily health momentum.
It is sometimes difficult to track the circumstances that lead to illness or imbalances in the body. One would need to pay as much attention to themselves, situational changes and the many changing environments we move through, and then relate to build-ups and feelings of depletion as a basis for tracking how, when and why an imbalance occurred.
Transformation Arts is a formal Internal Arts passing lineage tradition that shoulders socially responsive action in the return, creation and education of self-health care practices and oral/written instruction of lineage Tai Chi/QiGong and Yoga. Actively engaged in Health Care Reform, Transformation Arts reflects, adapts and considers time-tested and global best practice standards. The Lineage uses the commonalities of Human-Shared Qualities, practical application of time-tested training and transformed individual results and science-based research as the measure.
My greatest interest in this life is to continue to understand what connects us and what separates us, from a personal experiential perspective, from my observation of my outside world and from my inter-personal relations. I also study history, how and why it repeats itself, Cultural Traditions and Lineages of Higher Learning, all in hopes of a deeper understanding of the Human condition and our many expressions of it.
