Fire Dragon Meridian Qigong is a traditional Chinese internal alchemy method that embodies the spirit of the rising dragon, an auspicious symbol of transformation in Chinese culture. The form works directly on the meridians, releasing areas of stagnation and bringing the physical and emotional body into a balanced state of well-being.
Fire Dragon Meridian Qigong is a key Qigong form, from the Mt. Emei tradition, for those seeking healing from cancer and other significant life challenges. This book provides background information and a detailed description of the form itself, illustrated with calligraphy, meridian drawings, and photographs throughout.

“Teachers teach what they know. We need them. Masters rarely teach, but when they do, they teach what they are. Tigers do not hand out resumes but they are masters of being tigers. The modern world has become a discourteous complication drowning in an unnatural, unconnected soup of over-information, bereft of wisdom and any sane direction. For our bodies, minds, and souls to survive this worldwide cultural disaster, we need the delicious complexity of our real indigenous natures to reappear. We are lucky to have Master Wu’s generous approach as a place to begin becoming natural humans again.”
