Welcome to the Taichi Tao Center

For more than 50 years, we’ve been proud to be the teaching home of Master Waysun Liao. Master Liao delivers wisdom from centuries of Taoist masters who knew and passed down the true power and potential of Taichi and how to connect that energy to the power of Tao. The Taichi Tao Center is the source of that lineage teaching today and delivers it straight to you via online streaming video, seminars, classes, and books.

We believe that today’s technology makes access to this wisdom possible for everyone!

Why Many Honor Him as “Grandmaster” Waysun Liao

From the age of twelve, Master Waysun Liao studied with a wandering Taoist and in a Taoist temple until he became a full Taichi and Tao master. His first book, T’ai Chi Classics (published by Shambala Publications) is currently translated into 9 languages worldwide. Since then, he has written several more, published by both Shambhala Publications and Taichi Tao Productions.

Considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on traditional Taoist wisdom and Chi arts, he is the founder and master of one of the oldest Taichi centers in North America, the Taichi Tao Center, which is located in Oak Park, Illinois. Thousands of Taichi students, many who went on to become professional Taichi instructors and Taichi masters, learned how to teach Taichi right here from classes at the Taichi Tao Center under Taichi Master Waysun Liao.

That’s why other Taichi instructors, learning centers, martial arts masters, spiritual teachers, and Taichi group leaders around the world today, call him “Grandmaster.” It means that they see the unlimited potential within this wisdom and the amazing benefits in learning Taichi through Master Liao, and want to claim a part of that powerful legacy!

The good news is that now everyone can learn Taichi and Tao wisdom with Waysun Liao as their own direct master, including you!
