Most books on Teaching or Learning focus on exercises, instructions and class activities, repeating old patterns and tired methods. Ways of Learning takes a different approach by NOT showing you what to think, rather HOW to think. Ways of Learning is the essential handbook for both students and teachers to ensure growth, flexibility and openness to new methods. Ways of Learning takes you back to the fundamental principles of practice by asking again and again: How is any of this going to help me learn what I need to learn, teach what I need to teach? The answers reveal themselves throughout the 18 chapters in this book. Each Chapter aims to stimulate new ideas by relating everything back to these questions and to these new times and circumstances. You will find: * How to Find your own Learning Path * How to rediscover the Warrior Spirit * The Art of Yielding, listening and Speaking * Technology and Taoism * Popular Teaching Illusions * Standard Clichés to Avoid * Going Beyond the limits of Copying * Training Checklists for Students and Teachers * Getting your Students to Teach Forget diagrams and photos of postures. You can get those in class. Here you will find something very different. If you are looking to revamp your Tai Chi studies or classes, then this book will provide much food for thought. By embracing the philosophical as well as the practical tools for change, everyone can discover new insights and strategies for the 21st century way.
