Who We Are

Taoist Arts Center New York:
Who We Are

The Taoist Arts  Center was established in 1990 out of a long term commitment to practicing the internal arts and creating a vibrant community where people can learn about tai chi chuan, chi kung (qigong) and meditation and share what they know. Our students come from all walks of life and from all backgrounds. We invite you to come by and check us out.

The Water Method of Lao Tzu and the early Taoists permeates Susan's approach to the internal arts. As water wears away rock, practitioners of this method dissolve blockages and allow their energy to circulate freely. The Water Method builds a foundation of good health. From there practitioners learn to dispel their emotional and psychic ghosts and transform themselves into balanced, mature beings at ease with themselves and  their environment.
