5.0 out of 5 stars A clear and concise understanding of the Daoist Process of Change, 4 Sept. 2011
By 
This review is from: Daoist Nei Gong: The Philosophical Art of Change (Paperback)
The author Damo Mitchell has written a fascinating study on the lesser well know Daoist Art of Nei Gong, providing the Internal Arts student with a clear and concise understanding of this Daoist Process of self cultivation.

The author speaks from a sound knowledge of the Martial Arts which he has been studying since he was a child, we see this by how he places great emphasis on the conditioning of the physical body to become flexible and soft, and how the mind and body cannot be separated.

His knowledge from his actual experience and his insight into the Classics has produced a very accessible guide which stays true to original Daoist philosophy and ideas but for a Western mindset.

He talks of the Three Bodies of Man, and how to awaken the Energy System, activating the Lower Dan Tien, Yin and Yang and vibrational frequencies, the Daoist theory of Creation, Sung Breathing techniques, the Meridian System and also advanced and controversial Nei Gong practise.

What I really admire about the authors words is that he regards himself as a perpetual student of the way, when he speaks of the final stage of conversion of Shen to Dao he freely admits that 'here my understanding ends' as he is currently working on this stage himself, he knows the future stages theoretically but would rather talk only about what he has directly experienced. This for me shows his humility and the dissolving of the ego and gives great confidence that we can reach this stage ourselves through as he says 'having an open mind and heart'.
