Helen and I produced this unique set of postcards to inspire and support people in the enjoyment of their practice of Tai Chi. We first introduced them to participants at our Tai Chi for Health Workshop to celebrate World Tai Chi Day on 28th April 2018.

We're pleased to announce that we can now make them available to everyone, near or far,  no matter what style of Tai Chi you practice and enjoy.

Each card features a beautiful image, a short poem by Philip Sheridan, and a description, that offers a window into a Tai Chi Principle for you to focus on when you practice.


  • 松 Sōng – meaning to loosen and relax the muscles, and open the joints
  • 沉 Chén - meaning to sink or down, describes a feeling of rooted to the earth
  • 静 Jìng – meaning quiet, still, motionless, or mindfulness, in movement
  • 篷 Péng – meaning literally awning, tent, or cover but in the context of tai chi meaning to extend strength or support in all directions

As you embark on learning Tai Chi you'll find your journey begins to spiral outward yet keeps returning again and again to these fundamental principles. As your practice grows so your integration of these principles will deepen at each turn.

We chose these particular principles because they run as a thread beneath all styles of Tai Chi Chuan.
