Chinese yoga, known as qigong (or chi kung), changes lives. In many people's lives and in hospitals, spas, retreat centers, corporations, and even in the military, qigong consistently emerges as the self-healing tool of choice. Why? Research shows gentle tai chi-like movements, self-massage, breath practice, and meditative mindfulness have a consistently measurable effect on the nervous system, brain, and body when practiced consistently. Whether you seek healing, empowerment, maximum personal performance, inner peace, or perhaps an experience that can only be referred to as oneness, you will find qigong is easy to practice and remember.
Drawing on many years of experience and synthesis across disciplines, Roger Jahnke guides you in exploring the insights of the ancient qi masters, discovering the original meaning of tai chi, and demonstrating your inner power and natural qi abilities that awaken when you practice the Nine Phases Method of qi cultivation and mastery featured in his book, The Healing Promise of Qi. Jahnke imparts his knowledge of Chinese medical theory, the philosophies of the Taoists, Buddhists, martial artists, and ancient alchemists, and makes enlightening comparisons with Western physiology and quantum physics. You will explore simple methods of transmitting qi to others as well.
