"Dance on both feet, balance the advancing and the yielding, the stepping and the picking up," advises Al Huang, master of T'ai Chi and author of Quantum Soup and Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain. A longtime friend of Alan Watts, with whom he wrote Tao: The Watercourse Way (Pantheon 1977), Huang touches on those principles of inner dancing that make life a joy. In this amusing and enlightening conversation, he encourages us to move freely, to laugh, to embrace paradox, to take ourselves and our world lightly, "to take the S out of cosmic and enjoy what's left." (hosted by Michael Toms)


Founder and president of the Living Tao Foundation and director of the Lan Ting Institute in China, Huang is also a Tai Ji master, calligrapher.
