Overview

Finalist - 2006 Book of the Year Award by ForeWord MagazineThe Root of Spiritual Enlightenment
Chinese Qigong can be generally categorized into External Elixir (Wai
Dan) and Internal Elixir (Nei Dan) Qigong. The first step of practicing
Internal Elixir Qigong has been known as Small Cyclic Heaven (Small
Circulation or Microcosmic Meditation). After completing Small Cyclic
Heaven, a practitioner will learn Grand Cyclic Heaven (Grand Circulation or Macrocosmic Meditation). The purpose of Grand Cyclic Heaven is to re-open the Heaven Eye (Third Eye) to unite the natural spirit and human spirit. This is the ultimate goal of spiritual enlightenment in both
Daoism (Taoism) and Buddhism. Although these kinds of meditations are popular, very few scientific books or documents are available to the public.
The Foundation of Internal Elixir Cultivation
In order to reach the goal of longevity and spiritual enlightenment,
the Qigong practitioner must learn Internal Elixir Qigong. The first step to learning is to understand the theory and the method of Embryonic
Breathing. Practicing this breathing technique will help you to establish your central energy system, conserve your energy, and store this energy to abundant levels. Once you have established this foundation, you will be able to practice Small Cyclic Heaven (Small
Circulation or Microcosmic Orbit) and Grand Cyclic Heaven (Grand
Circulation of Macrocosmic Orbit) effectively. It is understood that without this foundation, the root of spiritual enlightenment will not be established and the study and the practice of spiritual enlightenment,
through meditation, will be in vain.
• Embryonic Breathing theory and techniques were kept secret in Buddhist and Daoist (Taoist) monasteries.
• Dr. Yang discusses most of the available documents, translates and comments upon them.
• Scientific analysis and summary of the practice methods.
• A comprehensive, straightforward way to understand and practice Embryonic Breathing.

Editorial Reviews

Chet Day
"During my many years as a natural health writer, I've read hundreds and hundreds of books on Qigong and meditation, but during those ten years I've never encountered a book as thoroughly researched and documented as Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming's massive translation and commentary on the available materials related to Embryonic Breathing theory and techniques. Those of us in the West owe Dr. Yang a sincere bow of gratitude for this fascinating resource."
