The world of TaijiQuan changed in the 1980s with the opening up of mainland China. Two barely known themes fundamental to the training began to emerge: ZhanZhuang, the standing qigong, and Chansigong, the technique of twining silk. This book documents an old-timer's plunge into this new world.

Kinthissa's book offers a rare, and much needed, glimpse into a rigorous internal practice, a way of being aware of the body's inner landscape and the micro-movement that is the foundation of all movement. Through the pages of her book, Kinthissa guides the reader with patience and precision as she speaks about the most intimate and fundamental nature of the body, with the love and respect that comes from exhaustive involvement with its inner workings through meticulous observation. We can follow step by step her thought processes as she tracks events and impressions throughout the daily-ness of her practice. Her writing is filled with beautifully articulate accounts of inner movement. --Dance Research, the Journal of the Society for Dance Research, Vol.28, No.2, November 2010
