Build a strong foundation for health, longevity, and spiritual enlightenment with the ancient art of Qìgōng Embryonic Breathing (Internal Elixir).

Chinese Qìgōng can be categorized into External Elixir (Wàidān) and Internal Elixir (Nèidān). To reach the goals of longevity and spiritual enlightenment, the practitioner must learn Internal Elixir Qìgōng.

The first step, and the focus of this book, is to understand the theory and the method of Embryonic Breathing. Practicing this breathing technique will help you

  • Optimize your central energy system
  • Conserve your energy
  • Store this energy at abundant levels

Using ancient Buddhist and Daoist documents, Dr. Yáng analyzes and discusses meditation theory and training methods in a modern and scientific manner. This double-edged approach will enable you to quickly achieve a high level of understanding.

It is well acknowledged that without a proper foundation, the root of spiritual enlightenment will not be established and the meditative practice of Qìgōng for spiritual enlightenment, may be in vain.

Qìgōng Embryonic Breathing is organized into three parts

  • Foundations: General Qìgōng concepts and meditation theory
  • Translations and commentary of ancient documents related to Embryonic Breathing
  • The practice of Embryonic Breathing meditation

The necessary second and third steps are to practice Qìgōng Small Circulation and Qìgōng Grand Circulation.

 

This second edition includes pinyin tonal marks for pronunciation, modern Chinese fonts, and illustration enhancements.
