Praise for Chinese Shamanic Tiger Qigong:
“In this revised edition of the practice section in his first book, Vital Breath of the Dao, Master Wu presents an expanded view and practice approach to an esoteric system of energy work practiced in China for thousands of years to cultivate health, longevity, and spiritual awareness, a system Master Wu has adapted to fit the needs of contemporary readers looking for effective ways to deal with the complex challenges to human health in the world today.
Since the publication of his first, groundbreaking book twelve years ago, Wu Zhongxian has become an important voice for the Tao in the western world, renowned for the clarity and practicality of his approach to teaching western students the ancient Taoist art and science of energy work, one of China’s greatest gifts to the world. His writing clearly conveys the essence of the ancient precepts handed down to him from the masters of age-old lineages of which he is a direct descendant. His books not only teach the right way to practice the forms, they also show the way to integrate the teachings with daily life in the modern world.
There is nothing mysterious about the Tao. It’s as simple and natural as breathing. But it takes a true master to teach a world that’s lost its Way – even the right way to breathe – how to get back on track again. This is a guidebook that shows you the way.”
