Qigong (ch'i kung) is the modern incarnation of a Chinese energy art that goes back over 2,000 years. With superior scholarship and scientific acumen, The Way of Qigong covers the entire range of theory and practice, including relaxation, meditation, massage, therapeutic touch, and postures. Qi (ch'i) means "life energy," and the goal of qigong, master and Chinese scholar Ken Cohen tells us, is "to train the mind to send qi where it is needed." In this encyclopedic work, Cohen teaches us not only how to do qigong, but what it means and how it benefits us, from what kind of tea is best in the summer to how to have better sex. Cohen is at his best when reducing arcane Chinese theories to plain English, and as a result, The Way of Qigong is as interesting as it is useful. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
As much a "why-to" as a how-to, this is the most comprehensive recently issued book on the Chinese healing art, qigong. Related to t'ai chi, qigong is a series of movements designed to bring qi, or life-force, into the body and encourage it to flow without blockage. Cohen meticulously defines the philosophy that inspired this ancient practice, but his engaged and engaging tone keeps the mass of material he presents from becoming ponderous. He well covers the experimental scientific evidence of qigong's beneficial effect, and the lengthy, illustrated section of exercises he includes shows how qigong can be used for emotional and spiritual as well as physical healing. However many other qigong books are in your library, add this definitive volume.
