  • £P.O.R.

Ancient wisdom for a modern audience - discover the many benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi

Reduce stress, release pain and create whole body harmony with this practical introduction to Qigong and the yin/yang balance of Tai Chi, the ancient Chinese arts of 'movement meditation'.

From reducing stress and improving posture to balance and general mobility, the many physical and mental benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi are widely celebrated. In this accessible book, Mimi Kuo-Deemer offers practices, insights and wisdom on these arts, and shows us how to support our natural capacity for energy, balance and wellbeing.

Qigong's approach is based on the Chinese Five Elements or Phases of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each natural element relates to an organ and meridian system in the body, and Qigong and the Tai Chi Axis will explore each of these elements as they relate to our physical, mental and emotional health. It also will include popular and widely practiced sequences and forms such as the 8 Brocades, Five Animal Frolics, Tai Chi Qigong 18 Forms and Five Element Qigong practices and explore how these lead to wholeness, nourishment and health.

Part I: Wood Element: Nourishing our Roots
Part 2: Fire Element: Nourishing the Heart
Part 3: Earth Element: Nourishing the Mind
Part 4: Metal Element: Nourishing the Spirit
Part 5: Water Element: Nourishing our Deepest Wisdom
