Developed over millennia in Chinese monasteries, hospitals, and imperial courts, Tai Chi and Qigong (literally life-force and mastery) are profound yet simple methods for increasing vitality, longevity, and sexual potency; achieving and maintaining optimal health and inner peace; and healing both minor and major illnesses. Long kept a carefully guarded secret from the Chinese public, Tai Chi and Qigong have recently come into widespread use throughout the Far East. They are now a health and human performance enhancement breakthrough in the West as well -- ancient power tools for self-improvement and a safe, gentle, and proven alternative approach to treating pain and disease.

In The Healing Promise of Qi, Roger Jahnke. O.M.D., internationally respected doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine and best-selling author of The Healer Within, clearly and simply explains Tai Chi and Qigong principles and practices. Rather than focus on one particular method or form, Dr. Jahnke distills the best and most important lessons, learned from Chinese teachers with whom he has studied. With the help of more than one hundred superbly rendered illustrations, Dr. Jahnke teaches you easy-to-learn techniques drawn from among twenty-five traditional and modern forms of Tai Chi and Qigong that he has mastered and taught to thousands of people in workshops, retreats, and health-care institutions throughout North America and China. And instead of offering a one-size-fits-all program, he provides guidelines for tailoring a self-healing and empowerment regimen to your unique goals, age, body type, personality, and medical condition.

Qi is the ancient Chinese concept for the source of all vitality, healing, and creativity. For those who are healthy and those who seek healing, Qi is the primary ingredient in the most profound medicine, which is produced for free, naturally within the human body. China's most traditional and powerful healing arts, Tai Chi and Qigong are the most direct route to accessing and mastering Qi. Now, this down-to-earth guide, makes the awesome power of Qi available to everyone through Tai Chi and Qigong.

"Jailbreaking the Goddess is an important contribution to the writings on Goddess tradition and feminist spirituality. . . . I love her political savvy, her sensitivity around issues of diversity and cultural awareness and appropriation, and her unabashed celebration of pleasure, sensuality, and life!" -- Starhawk

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physic...

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
