Chi Kung Energy for Life Description

Chi Kung is a vast range of Chinese health, vitality and longevity exercises practised by millions throughout the East and now rapidly entering the West. This introductory guide covers the whole scope of Chi Kung practice and contains unique contributions from 22 of the West’s leading practitioners and teachers.

Chi means ‘energy’ or ‘life’ while Kung means ‘working with’, ‘developing’ or ‘cultivating’. Practising Chi Kung develops energy and cultivates life. It is based upon the ancient philosophy of Taoism and underlies Acupuncture and Tai Chi.

Fully illustrated with step by step guidance, this book makes Chi Kung practice clear and accessible. A comprehensive textbook, it includes 60 diagrams and charts explaining the anatomy and physiology of the human energy system, showing how chi energy is the vital essence that powers our lives.

Chi Kung practice is introduced in four easy-to-follow sections:
· Simple beginners’ practices, which anybody in average health can use to develop, control and refine their energy.
· More advanced practices, including the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, the Master and Coupled Points.
· Sexuality and Spiritual Development
· Clinical treatments with Chi Kung Healing and Medical Qigong.

Ideal as a beginners’ guide or an experienced practitioner’s textbook, this book shows how Chi Kung can be applied to everyday life both at work and at home. Social Chi Kung applies it to the elderly, special needs, partners and groups, society and the global community.

Based upon the same principles as Acupuncture and Tai Chi, and practiced by millions of people around the world, these simple, enjoyable exercises give you energy for life.
