About This Site

Welcome to Flow Tai Chi!

My name is Ryan French, and I am an undergraduate English student examining flow combined with the practice of T’ai chi ch’üan, also known as tai chi.

For the past semester, I have been enrolled in the courses Mysticism and Contemplation, which explores meditative and mystical experiences through secular and religious lenses, and Tai Chi I and Tai Chi II, which teaches students the first and second sections of Yang-style tai chi.

The purpose of this site is to examine how tai chi functions as a vehicle for flow, and how it has personally benefitted my health throughout the semester.

This will be achieved by examining the theories of flow, the history and practice of tai chi, and through reflecting on my personal experiences.
