'On the back' of The Taoist Art of K'ai Men
K'ai Men means the 'Open Door' and expresses the idea that Taoist Yoga is the doorway to all the channels of the mind, the spirit and the body. It is particularly concerned with the energies and vitalities within the physical system and how these can be harnessed, cullivaled and utilized to maximum benefit.
Through photographs, diagrams and a lext that skillfully relales Kai Men to the philosophical background of Taoism, Chee Soo shows how we in the West can use this ancient Chinese Art to improve physical and mental vigour and to provide an effective method of dealing with the stresses and anxieties of the modern world.
