- Excellent and essential resource. Review by Deep Spring
This elegant book presents a comprehensive view of Qi in its history, its philosophy, and its practice. The clarity of writing allows this book to be a value to novice and to master. As a new student of Taji, I read a forward copy a few months ago, but find that today I appreciate it in a different level of meaning.
I find this book grounds the concept of Qi as energy firmly in its historical and philosophical context. The section on applications allows the reader to follow the traditional movements and to learn to experience the theoretical.
For me the intertwining of body and mind in Buddhism has always presented a stumbling block. As on many topics in this book, I find the discussion satisfying and a source for new meditation and for practice. I believe these points make this an essential book on the topic of qi.
Dr. Clippinger is a lovely and accessible writer. I recommend this book highly. (Posted on 9/23/16)
