Product Details

Chee Soo practiced the Taoist Arts of Tai Chi Ch’uan, Feng Shou kung fu and Ancient Chinese Medicine for sixty years. He was first taught by Chan Kam Lee a Taoist teacher from Weihaiwei in Shandong province in China who came to live in London in 1930 and met Chee Soo one day in Hyde Park. From this day there formed a freindship and Chee Soo went on to become one of Chan Lee’s students in a little class in Red Lion Square in Holborn, London.

Chee Soo became immersed in Taoism as he began to learn Chan Lee’s teachings and began to live his life as a Taoist, and in time went on to teach people the Taoist Arts all over the world.

One day on December 21st 1976 thoughts started to enter his mind about the nature of the Tao, and for the next eight years he noted these thoughts down. This notebook was never published during his lifetime but in 2006 his wife Marilyn gave the manuscript to Chris Simpson and he decided to publish it so that anyone could benefit from the insights contained therein.
