Singing Dragon the world’s foremost publisher of books on T’ai Chi, Qigong, and Ancient Wisdom Traditions on Health and healing, is proud to announce the first systematic exploration of the nature of Qi – vital energy – and how to cultivate it.
Deng Ming-Dao, author of Scholar Warrior and 365 Tao, says that Cultivating Qi “succinctly pulls together the many threads about qi, and weaves a brocade valuable to the beginner and advanced practitioner alike.”
When we become aware of disharmony in our lives, how do we find the means, tools and will to live a life of balance?
Like the perpetual transforming of Yin and Yang, awareness and Qi (vital energy) share a dynamic, complementary relationship. Energy fuels awareness and awareness fuels energy, while the successful integration of the two fuels our focus, direction and drive. Many people who have the awareness that they want to achieve balance their lives may not have sufficient understanding of Qi to do so effectively. Emphasising the fundamental importance of understanding Qi, this book explains where it comes from, how we use it, and how we can cultivate it in order to achieve wholeness and balance. It illustrates the central importance of Qi when working with meditation, Taiji, Qigong, and other Internal Arts that focus upon its vitality, and how recognising and cultivating Qi can increase your energetic capacity and return you to a more efficient physical, emotional, and psychological state.
The author also offers a comprehensive view of the history, philosophies and practices of Qi, alongside instruction on a number of methods for opening the energy gates of the body and cultivating Qi.
