It is a pleasure to read such a balanced approach. I highly recommend Qigong and the Tai Chi Axis!” — Kenneth S. Cohen, author of The Way of Qigong

Reduce stress, release pain, and create bodily harmony with this introduction to qigong and the yin/yang balance of tai chi, the ancient Chinese arts of movement meditation. This accessible book features information about these practices as well as insights into their benefits, providing tools for replenishing inner resources and managing energy levels. It also offers advice on making healthier choices in everyday life that will support the body’s natural capacity for energy, balance, and well-being.

  • The qigong practice is the ancient Asian system of health and self-development that allows us to slow down, create space, and bring each of us back in harmony with our true Self.
  • The hallmark of qigong is equanimity—having a calm mind in difficult situations.
  • Learn to balance your mind-body connection, known as the tai chi axis—the point where yin and yang come into perfect balance in your body.
  • The book provides an overview of the seasonal themes and characteristics of the Chinese Five Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water.
  • It teaches lessons in self-care and wellness, including how to eliminate fatigue and illness, fear, exercises to relieve pain, and offers key practices in support of grieving in a healthy way.
