In an accessible, well-written, and engaging style, Cohen explores the basics of qigong, beginning with a description of qigong, its history, the Chinese model of body energy, qigong science, and the parameters of a qigong workout: time and place of practice, posture, awareness, and breathing. He provides a step-by-step program for working with qi through breathing, relaxation exercises, massage, visualization, meditation, posture, and awareness, to attain, enhance and improve health and wellbeing. Admonitions describe both benefits and dangers, evolving a qigong lifestyle, and dietary and sexual aspects for qigong enhancement.
Wide-ranging, informative, well researched, and enjoyable to read, this book is a great place to start understanding and experiencing qigong.
