Tai-Chi essential 10 of 10: 动中求静 (Moving meditation)
动中求静 外家拳术，以跳掷为能，用尽气力，故练习之后，无不喘气者。 太极拳以静御动，虽动犹静，故练架子愈慢愈好。使则呼吸深长，气沉丹 田，自无血脉愤张之弊。学者细心休会，庶可得其意焉。
My rendition of essential 10: “During movement practice, one is to be in a meditative state”. This is the ultimate in Tai-chi form practice and needs a practitioner’s meticulous attention in order to pursue this goal. Slow and continuous movement is therefore required for tai-chi.
Paul’s additional comment: Please refer to my previous post on the execution of this essential in dance form (click here).
