Way of Qigong : The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing
Kenneth S. Cohen,
Hardcover , 428 pages
- Qigong, which means "working with the energy of life", is an integrated system of mind-body healing that has been practiced with remarkable results in China for thousands of years. Now, renowned practitioner and scholar of Chinese culture Kenneth Cohen brings the wisdom of qigong to the West.
This accessible, beautifully written book describes the breathing, meditations, and exercises of classical qigong with exceptional clarity. We learn how to use posture and self-awareness to attain complete and ideal relaxation and how to move the "qi" along the acupuncture meridians and to internal organs to prevent and heal disease. Most significantly, Cohen ties this ancient--and thoroughly modern--practice to developments in Western science, notably biofeedback and the emerging field of psychoneu-roimmunology.
