More of a unique and valuable reference work Sept. 21 2008
By Kenneth Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
It is a great benefit to everyone that Ken Cohen has created this great reference work containing many details of every aspect of Qi Gong theory and practice. Most other works are either patchy and incomplete, or in Chinese. Since Mr. Cohen speaks Chinese, and has taught and practiced Qi Gong for most of his life, he is ideally suited to providing this material. It's particularly helpful that he has also presented so much of the material as DVD instruction videos.
However, in many ways, this is a work for the Qi Gong teacher, or at least for committed students of many years. While the material can certainly be used by beginners, it requires more time, effort and money than those who only have a casual curiosity are willing to invest in something they have not experienced.
Each aspect of the learning process is dealt with in great detail, such that the student is never going to say "I'm still not sure what I am supposed to do at this point" (which is a comment I've read about many other qigong and yoga products). But the flip side is that the student needs to commit to investing a large amount of time to this course. For example, many exercises have 10 minutes of introductory explanation of the proper state of mind, prior to 10 minutes of explaining the exercise itself - for something that is going to comprise one or two minutes of your daily practice.
So, for the more casual beginner, which is probably going to be most people, there is a more simple and less costly solution. Get the inexpensive and excellent DVD set "Qigong Beginning Practice" by the Garripolis, which is probably the best instruction video for casual beginners, and then get Ken Cohen's paperback book "The Way of Qigong" which contains all his excellent knowledge and explanations of the theory and significance of Qigong. The cost of both together is less than a third of the cost of this course.

Finally!! July 16 2005
By Mark Boudreau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
Finally, a great course teaching all the things about Qi-Gong that I've always heard about but could never get anyone to explain. This course touches on all the essential basic and more advanced qigong excersises.There are many old, traditional qigong excersises taught and explained in a well defined step by step program. A top quality product. Thank you Ken Cohen!

The essential Qigong training course by Ken Cohen Aug. 23 2007
By Peter farnsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
The course is a compilation of previous CD's and DVD's and a condensed version of his book ,The Way of Qigong. This course is the best value for money program that i have found and is jammed full of useful information .
Althought this course is is aimed at the beginner i have found it useful as an experienced qigong learner to gain deeper insights into Qigong. Ken brings to the course rational perspective and a balanced approach to the learning of this subject.The whole approach to learning Qigong is beautifully presented incuding the packaging .A lot of thought has gone into developing this program . The DVD on External Qigong Healing is exeptionally good and gives the learner a great introduction to useful techniques that can be incorporated into any healing situation.
This program would be of particular benefit to massage or bodyworkers who wish to incorporates aspects of Qigong into their practice. In summary one of the best products that has come out on this subject .

Highly recommend.... Oct. 6 2006
By David A. Kanosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
I am grateful for this qigong training course. I have tried a couple of other videos for qigong practice but this IS THE course to have if you are to have one. I'm using the techniques in concert with the treatment I have received for rheumatoid arthritis and have been pleasantly suprised by the results. This has been noted by the accupuncturist as well. Treatments in the western medicine are expensive and I am happy to note that I have been having far better results with the practice of qigong complimenting my treatments.

Wonderful Qigong Explanation July 2 2007
By Satia Renee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
This cd and dvd collection takes qigong seriously enough to treat the practice as a discipline. There is a wealth of information and excercises included. Cohen introduces the exercises and meditations slowly, with solid foundational explanations. More exercises are introduced gradually allowing the student to at least feel familiar with each discipline before a new one is introduced. Suggestions for variations are also made, allowing people of different physical abilities to work with the exercises. Although I did not initially feel the qi energy as I did the exercises, after a couple of weeks I began to feel it and then gradually felt it every time I did the prescribed meditations, etc. The introduction of new exercises keeps this 100 days course from becoming boring. An excellent resource for anyone interested in qigong as a form of energy practice for healing.
