Integral Taichi Introduction


The Ten Divinities of Heaven and Earth

CK 10 is the acronym for Can Khon Thap Linh (The Ten Divinities of Heaven and Earth). It is also known as Integral Tai Chi (ITC), and comprises a set of ten holistic exercise movements taught by Master Ce Hang Truong (Hang Cheng). The ten movements or forms are:
  1. Can (Chien -- Heaven)
  2. Toad
  3. Ox
  4. Crane
  5. Dragon
  6. Phoenix
  7. Tiger
  8. Butterfly
  9. Tortoise
  10. Khon (Kun -- Earth).
Each form is associated with a chakra (energy centers) located in front of and along the human spine, starting with the base chakra at the end of the tail bone, and ending at the crown chraka at the top of the head. Each movement is designed to transmute the energy at various chakras to bring health benefits as well as spiritual/mental transformation.

The Seven Main Chakras (Energy Centers)
CK 10 exercises start with warm up movements including yoga stretching, to be followed by the ten forms that generate energy along the chakras, and ended with the corpse pose and meditation. The corpse pose is essential as the way to store the energy generated through the exercises. Finally sitting meditation transforms the energy.


  1. Taichi or to give it a better translation Taichiquan (supreme ultimate fist) requires the mind and spirit to be trained. So being able to control your body and the posture using your will power is incredibly important; pain in the muscles can be overcome. dahn yoga reviews

  2. Spiritual healing is constituted of two words - "spiritual" and "healing". Spirituality is to recognize, accept and realize the power of God beyond our understanding. In other words, for being a spiritual person you need to believe in yourself and others.
