The great teacher Bodhidharma is credited with the creation of Shaolin Temple qi gong and kung fu in the 6th century CE. Motivated by the terrible physical condition of the monks who spent all their time meditating or copying scrolls, his two-part system promoted physical as well as spiritual fitness and became the basis for all the martial and meditative arts taught in the Shaolin Temple. These ancient practices increase physical health and vitality, enhance creativity and can be practised well into old age. Author Shi Xinggui, a Shaolin monk, explains the fundamental principle of qi gong - the art of mastering energy (qi) and moving it through the body - and provides clear demonstrations of all the positions and movements. In order to develop qi attentively, it is necessary to cultivate the art of slowness in both movement and breathwork. Shi Xinggui provides both a short form and a long form of the daily exercises, with lessons on heart centring, organ strengthening and balancing the energy using the three dantians - the three energy centres of the body. A 53-minute DVD of the exercises performed by the author is, also, included. * Reveals the fundamental spiritual principles and includes both a short and long form of the daily exercises * Explains the benefits of mastering energy in the body, such as organ strengthening

  1. Bra, lättläst.
    Simon Johnsson (Ronneby), 22 februari 2016

    En bra och lättläst bok. mycket intressant historia, fakta och info kring qigong. inte så många övningar som man hade räknat med men de som är, är väldigt bra beskrivna i detalj och bra bilder på utförande och en bra dvd med författaren när han går igenom alla övningar i boken.
    En bra bok att börja med att läsa om man är intresserad av att lära sig qigong.

"Throughout the text one becomes aware of this kind, gentle, but relentless dedication to taking the reader, trainee or initiate, to new and higher levels of achievement. At no point is there any sense of the beginner's limitations, only a sense of promise ahead and the value inherent in working towards clear goals. . . . while being a book artfully designed to meet the needs of a contemporary, pressured, and chaotic experience, Shaolin Qi Gong: Energy in Motion is also a book that is likely to introduce many to the wisdom of Buddhist spirituality and to the disciplines of perhaps today's most fabled form of martial arts." * Reg Little, New Dawn Magazine, No. 119, Mar/Apr 2010 * "This seems to be just as much about inner peace as it is physical exercise. I have gained a new respect for the topic after watching the video. . . . If you are looking for a VERY low-impact exercise system that will, at the very least, improve your flexibility and peace of mind, pick this up and follow along." * Daily Buddhism April 2009 * "This excellent guide teaches some of the basic forms of qigong, a traditional technique of Chinese energy movement that promotes energy and well-being. . . . A 45-minute DVD of selected exercises by Shi Xinggui is included, making this an effective tool for self-instruction." * Book News, Inc., March 2009 * "The scenery and the music on the DVD are very serene and beautiful in a way that was supportive to the exercises and following along, without intruding upon them. Anyone looking for a book on the absolute basics of Qi Gong and how to perform different exercises would not go wrong with picking up this book and DVD. I heartily recommend them." * Gesigewigu's, SpiralNature.com, Feb 2009 * "The book alone will be enough for most beginners to learn the basic moves and begin practicing them right away. A marvelous bonus, however, is the DVD that accompanies the text. . . . The music, based on the pentatonic scale, is particularly soothing, adding to the sense that there is no rush, no right or wrong, and no need to fret about perfection while practicing qi gong. . . . I've tried other books and DVD courses, in the past, but none of them has given me the natural flow of qi gong. . ." * Curled Up With a Good Book, Feb 2009 *
