5.0 out of 5 stars The missing key for effective meditation, 6 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Qigong Meditation: Embryonic Breathing (Paperback)
"Pay attention to your breath".
So often, this is the only guidance given regarding the importance of the breath during relaxation and meditation practice, especially in the West.
In his new book, Qigong Meditation, Dr. Yang explodes this sentence, as he instructs Embryonic Breathing, the missing key to modern mediation practice. These Qigong breathing techniques and Qi energy circulation practices are an essential part of sitting meditation, as it was taught in ancient times. This important teaching was passed down by Buddha, and by subsequent masters over the centuries, but has nearly been lost due to language barriers and the difficulty of understanding the deeper aspects of the training.
When mediation travelled out of India and China, and especially as it made it's way into western societies, this vital information has often been neglected, and new schools of thought developed. Though some people have had success in re-opening the third eye and attaining enlightentment with other methods, many have been Qigong masters.
Thank you Master Yang for translating most of the available ancient documents on this training - their profound content is now available to so many more people, and your excellent commentary is invaluable. I share your hope that more people strive to continue this research so that we may gain a modern scientific understanding of the human body, mind and spirit, and of the universe we inhabit.
As the word 'enlightenment' gets thrown around more and more casually in the West, it is important that we truly seek the roots of this precious learning, which has been passed down to all of us, with humble and open minds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anyone interested in Qigong should read this book!, 15 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Qigong Meditation: Embryonic Breathing (Paperback)
I wasn't sure whether this book would be too complicated for me, given my limited knowledge in Chinese medicine and Qigong, however the book is just brilliant. It is a well of knowledge, nothing is omitted, and all the concepts are well explained. Having said that, I wouldn't say it is the most practical book, it is meant to give you a very broad and thorough theoretical knowledge of Qigong and good insight into TCM/Chinese philosophy etc. Anyone interested in Qigong practice and Chinese way of maintaining good health and longevity should definitely give it a go. Some prior knowledge would be beneficial.
