Malcolm Dean is the founder and head instructor of the San Francisco Hunyuan Tai Chi Academy, which provides programs in Beginning Tai Chi, 50+ Conditioning, Health Recovery, Spiritual Transformation, Advanced Tai Chi, and Tai Chi Certification.
Malcolm is also the founder and President of Luminous Ground. His interest in the health, integrity, and beauty of the environment began in early childhood, exploring the woods, lakes, swamps, and fields around his childhood home. It continued through college at Indiana University, where he earned a degree in Plant Sciences. And it led to a life-long interest in ecology, systems theory, the evolution of human consciousness, and their relationship to the environmental crisis.
