Summary

A Comprehensive, Easy-To-Understand Guide To The Ancient Chinese Art Of Healing Body And Mind.

Qigong [pronounced chee-gung], which literally means "working with the energy of life", is an integrated mind-body healing method that has been practiced with remarkable results in China for thousands of years. The Chinese have long treasured qigong for its effectiveness both in healing and preventing disease. More recently, they have used it in conjunction with modern medicine to cure cancer, immune-system disorders, and other life-threatening conditions. Now, renowned qigong master and China scholar Kenneth S. Cohen brings the ancient healing power of qigong to Western listeners.

The Way of Qigong is filled with solid, practical exercises and guidance, providing an easy-to-follow program for working with our life energy through breathing and relaxation, meditation, visualization, and other natural methods. The benefits of qigong are obvious in those who practice it: increased strength, heightened sexuality, sounder sleep, clearer intuition, a more efficient and active metabolism, and minds and bodies that celebrate the harmony of true health.

Qigong's benefits have been analyzed and verified by contemporary medical researchers, who confirm resoundingly that qigong really does work. Now, with The Way of Qigong, the power and clarity of this ancient scientific art is finally available to us all. this landmark program will instruct, enlighten, enliven, and delight all who use it.

several chapters missing

Although I found this book well written and interesting, I am frustrated to fund several chapters that are in the printed version are missing from the audio book. I bought both as my eyesight is poor. I wanted to listen but have the printed copy for reference. now I have to read all the missing chapters.

Ken Cohen's The Way of Qigong

The audio book's only fault is that it is abridged. If you like the audio version, buy it in print.

A Solid Introduction

For an introductory course on the subject of Qigong, you could do worse than this book. It's informative, and the opening meditations are about as simple as it can get. Even guided, that's not to say they're simple - everyone has their own blocks to work past when it comes to learning how to meditate - but this is definitely a "no fear" approach for those who are curious to begin and aren't sure how to do so.
