Episode 12: Body Mind Healing Tai Chi Chuan, Four Dimensions of Purpose


Welcome to the twelfth episode of Bodymind Healing Tai Chi Chuan, Four Dimensions of Purpose, created and presented by Dr. Michael Mayer.

In this twelfth episode you’ll be introduced to:
a.) Turn 180 degrees and heel kick,
b.) Brush Knee forward and low punch
c.) Turn 180 degrees, Step forward and Punch
d.) Unfurling, Open the Heart and heel kick.


I hope you enjoy the Chinese Medicine interpretation of the “double butterfly kick” being a way to open the heart (yin) and small intestine meridian ( its yang counterpart). The connection between the activation of the kidney meridian in a heal kick and the opening of the heart with unfurling hand movements in also noteworthy for balancing these vital organs, etc.

This series may be better appreciated, if first you return to the foundational concepts espoused in our Introduction to Tai Chi Chuan video, https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/679302165, and you may also enjoy the origin of this art form, as discussed in this Origin video, https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/679372832.

    “I did not go out of our home during the daily terrorist attacks in Israel. I practiced Michael Mayer’s Bodymind Healing exercises regularly to regain my calm. They relieved my tight body and took my mind off of the stress and worries to be more present to others, to help them deal with their fears and find an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the war zone.I continue to use Bodymind Healing Qigong to ease everyday stresses and bring me back to my inner sanctuary of equanimity.”
