The cultural roots of Tai Chi, Shaolin Kung Fu and Chinese medicine

Everything is also an expression of the society and culture of a country in which it was created. Tai Chi, Shaolin Kung Fu, Chinese medicine and much more are closely interwoven with the cultural context of China and are supported by a philosophy of connecting opposites and holistic and relationship-sensitive thinking.

Chinese Symbol

The diversity of Chinese culture and tradition is reflected in forms such as Tai Chi, Shaolin Kung Fu and Chinese medicine. These practices are deeply embedded in the Chinese cultural context and are shaped by a philosophy based on the combination of opposites and holistic and relationship-sensitive thinking.

In the Chinese way of thinking, mysticism and visible reality are not viewed as insurmountable opposites, but rather merged into a harmonious system. The Chinese worldview views disease in the context of an individual's natural and social environment. The holistic view of the human being forms the basis for Tai Chi, in which body, mind and soul are viewed as a unity, manifestations of the universal life energy Qi. Illnesses, including mental illnesses, are viewed as disorders of the entire organism and treated accordingly..

A defining feature of the Chinese imagination is the idea of ​​harmonious balance in the cosmos, which should be maintained and restored when threatened. This finds expression in Yin-Yang thinking and the five element theory, which relate colors, seasons, moods, substances, planets and body parts to one another. Daoism particularly focuses on the harmonious relationships between heaven, earth and humans. Historically, the emperor, as the "Son of Heaven", played a crucial role in maintaining this harmony, which is even reflected in the names of some of the buildings in his Beijing palace that bear the "Harmony".

Analogously, harmony is also sought in human relationships. Conflicts are perceived as a disruption, which is why people strive to avoid them. Mutual support within the group is valued and employees are encouraged to develop approaches together to maintain harmony in all aspects of life.
