Chi: Discovering Your Life Energy (New)
by Liao, Waysun
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
Book ID: 9781590306956, 1590306953
Usually available in 3-5 days
An accessible introduction to the Chinese concept of chi: what it is, why it is important for health and well-being, and simple exercises to cultivate it-written by a Taoist master. Chi is the energy of life, and this book is an invaluable primer on the concept of chi, explaining in a direct and simple way what it is and why it is essential to health and vitality.
Written by tai chi and Taoist master Waysun Liao, author of Tai Chi Classics (which has sold close to 40,000 copies), the book provides an easy-to-understand explanation of chi, and then helps readers connect to, develop, and strengthen their own chi through breathing techniques and basic exercises, all demonstrated by Master Liao. There are many books available on tai chi and qigong practice, but Master Liaos book is an essential first step for anyone who truly wants to understand the fundamental principles, qualities, and cultivation of chi.
Chi is a book that will also be an important reference for alternative health professionals, such as acupuncturists and shiatsu therapists, and their patients, as well as for those who practice tai chi, qigong, aikido, and other chi-based martial arts.

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