On page 23; Dr Yang cautions the readers about the health risks of the Nei Dan (Mental) aspect of Chi Kung. While it is true that you CAN hurt yourself. In my opinion the Nei Dan aspect of Chi Kung is nowhere as dangerous as some of the breathing exercizes. On page 27 Dr. Yang cautions readers to perform the hand forms exactly as shown. The Hand forms are the least important aspect there is to Chi Kung. The mental (Nei Dan) and the breathing exercizes are far important. Now you should perform the hand forms as accurately as possible so that you will derive the most benefit from them. But if your joints, muscles, and tendons will not allow to perform the form exactly. do not worry about it. Perform the hand forms as accurately as you can. and give your body time to adjust. When performing the Chi Kung exercizes, perform them with a relaxed and cheerful attitude; or don’t do them. The exercize “Draw the bow” On the Cover Dr Yang demonstrates the arm holding the bow where the wrist is straight pointing two fingers in the direction the arrow would go. There is a very easy way to improve this exercize and cause chi (qi) to gather in the arm. You should bend the wrist back as nearly 90 degrees as comfortably possible and only extend the index finger. This will stimulate the liver meridian. Try the exercize both ways and decide for yourself which way is more effective. Dr. Yang spends quite some cames talking about the meridians (He uses the term channels”. however; I wish Dr. Yang had included a drawing to show where the meridians occur. May your chi (qi) flow wild and free.

Although I would recommend this text to even a beginner, Chi-gong is perhaps not the easiest thing to initially learn without someone to guide you. If you’ve had any previous experience in Chi-gong, Tai-chi or a decent amount of an external martial art, this is an invaluable text not just for improving your health, but also increasing the effectiveness of your energy when you need it most.Zakarius

Die 8 Brokate sind ein Thema für sich! Eine Standardisierung der Ausführung hat im Qi Gong nie (so richtig) stattgefunden und viele Varianten sind einfach schlecht – gerade unter gesundheitlichen Gesichtspunkten. In diesem Buch endlich eine gut erlernbare Variante, die m.E. dem Ursprung sehr nahe stehen (zumindest der südlichen, weicheren Schule). Von den Bildern alleine die Übungen zu erlernen dürfte Anfängern schwer fallen, es ist Vorerfahrung notwendig.Leider keine deutsche Ausgabe.

Having had a certain experience in Chi Kong and Tai Chi, I found this book very helpful, as a matter of fact a real poetry both intellectually and CHI wise. I have read many of Dr. Yang’s books which I found very instructive. Iwanted this book for its exercises and was attracted by the fact that they can be performed in 10-20 minutes. How can it be possible when you have to perform each exercise at least 24 times? It takes me at least 40 minutes. If anyone can give me a hint how to do all the exercises in a shorter time, please do !
