Revue de presse

The author suggests that the Dao is accessible by everyone in one way or another. The form it takes only depends upon how much you are willing to put in. As with any worthwhile goal in life, it takes patience, diligent practice, good teaching and persistence to get the maximum benefits. So it is with Nei Gong. This book will give the reader enough insights to persue the study of Nei Gong further. The practices of Sung breathing and the Ji Ben Qigong set are bound to be of value to all who read this book. --Yang-Sheng Online Journal

This book drills down into the golden core of the ancient Chinese art and science of internal self-cultivation known as 'Chi Gung' or 'energy work', and after reading it, you'll understand why Chi Gung is the best way on earth to protect your health, prolong your life, and clarify your awareness of both aspects of the Three Treasures' of life - mortal body, breath, and mind; and immortal essence, energy, and spirit. Known simply as 'Nei Gung', or 'internal work', this inner alchemy may be learned and practiced by anyone. Written by a dedicated practitioner who verifies scholarly research with personal experience and illustrates ancient theory with contemporary practice, this book provides the Western mind with a clear-cut introduction to Chi Gung that informs as well as inspires the reader to practice. --Daniel Reid

This is one of the best if not the best book on Daoist internal arts that I've ever read... Many books give practices but you don't understand the principles and reasons for doing them. This book is written so that you can understand the principles behind the practices. It is soundly based on the simple teachings of Lao Tze... I would recommend anyone interested in qigong and nei gong to get this book. --Qigong

Présentation de l'éditeur

Nei Gong has been a well-kept secret within the Daoist sects of China for centuries. Based upon the original teachings of the great sage Laozi, it has only ever been taught to close students of the masters chosen as the heads of the ancient orders. This book provides a breakdown of the entire Nei Gong process, and explains in plain English the philosophy which underpins Nei Gong practice, and which is based on the original teachings of the ancient Daoist priests. The methodology of Sung breathing, an advanced meditative practice which has until now been reserved for 'inner-door' students is described, and the book contains an entire set of Qigong exercises accompanied by instructional photographs and drawings. This book will be of interest to all practitioners of Qi Gong, martial arts and meditation, and will be a rewarding read for anyone interested in Eastern philosophy.

The best companion for every serious Nei Gong practitioner.
Description of many symptoms encountered during cultivation makes very clear where you are and what is to be done next.
Many thanks to Damo Mitchell.

HASH(0x9c69b294) étoiles sur 5 Clear explanation of Daoist internal enery work 21 septembre 2011
Par Donna - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Damo Mitchell has produced a very clearly and well explained book of the Internal Energy System. He expertly explains how the human energy system of meridians and centres are organised. More importantly he explains how we can improve our own system to function more effectively, producing benefits to our health and developing mind and spirit. I have not found such information detailed elsewhere in the English language. Those familiar with the Nei Gong process will enjoy the consolidation of this knowledge into one book and appreciate the insight from someone who has already followed the journey of which they are able to give a first hand account.

HASH(0x9c703b64) étoiles sur 5 Right Book - Right Time 3 octobre 2011
Par Randy Black - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
That's what Damo Mitchell says in the introduction, If you are in the right place than Nei Qong is the right "teacher" for you at this point. After 43 years of a Hindu- Yoga-Shinto-Buddist-Tai Chi -Qi Qong journey this book summed it all up and put the diverse aspects of my "spiritual quest" into context and meaning and that's in the first half of the book! On at least 6 separate times I have looked over at my wife and said, "This is a GOOD book!". The only caveat to your purchase of the book is that you (most likely), need a strong background in Tai Chi/Chi Chuan and some knowledge of TCM and the meridian system to have a strong point to start at and the prerequisite background vocabulary and knowledge. If you have those than this book could be the next "step" on your path.

HASH(0x9d89906c) étoiles sur 5 Has some rare information 2 août 2012
Par Turn the Page - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What I found most valuable in the book is Mitchell talking through advanced stages of Nei Gong training that he himself has experienced, such as transmuting qi to shen. Plus he gives clear explanations of earlier stages and is specific about what to do and signs to look for (though I wonder if people vary and some are bound to experience a different sign here or there). In no other book have I found these aspects so clearly laid out, and that's what makes this book quite valuable to me. He's a Westerner and plainly knows how to write to the linear-thinking Western reader. Though at times I felt he took that a bit too far. Unlike other reviewers here, I didn't appreciate as much the first half of the book, which goes over Daoist theory as it pertains to the body, qi, five elements, etc. Much of it is critical foundational info, but some of it was extraneous (e.g. the five elements), and I cringe a bit inside when these theories - and they are indeed theories - are presented as fact rather than interpretations of a body of experience. Yes, qi sensations are real and can be cultivated, but talking about things like negative and positive vibration waves in a manner that would probably run crosswise with physics is, I feel, trying to be too concrete with something that is ultimately unprovable, highly subjective, and interpreted differently in other cultures. To paraphrase the Tao Te Ching, "The Way that can be categorized neatly is not the true Way." So while I admire the breadth of what Mitchell has assimilated and presented (particularly at such a young age), I take some of it with a grain of salt. And that's fine, really not a big deal. I appreciated the few times in the book when Mitchell mentioned aspects of practice that he openly said he had not experienced. That sort of honesty is important in a book that is like a map charting unknown territory for followers.

I can imagine people who are new to Nei Gong getting very excited after reading this book, and being eager to start practicing. I would add two caveats. First, much of Nei Gong advancement is done through meditation, something I don't think Mitchell emphasized enough. The book has a lot of great theory, but is rightly loose on practice, since there are various movement exercises that could be used in Nei Gong. However, I can't imagine one advancing far without a strong foundation in meditation, and more space could be spent in the book on his views about meditation techniques, experiences, pitfalls, etc. Secondly, people need a qualified teacher to put all this theory into effective practice. I've never heard of anyone advancing far without roadblocks requiring a teacher's help. Mitchell advises people to seek out teachers for this or that aspect, but really everyone needs a teacher, often more than one. Even the Taoist classics state that, specifying that books are not enough.

Overall though, a very impressive book. Mitchell has outlined a process and levels of achievement that takes many dedicated practitioners 10 or more years, which makes this a great reference as we work our paths.

Gives enough information for you to take any chi gong practice to the next level. Use the simple exercises provided or incorporate the nei gong principles into your existing practice. I wish I had this book 15 years ago.

HASH(0x9c69b8c4) étoiles sur 5 excellent reference; ties many many concepts together 25 décembre 2012
Par Bill Dockery - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent book for the reason that it offers a very straight forward and focused look at the nei gung practices across many meditative disciplines.

The author's writing style presents this complex topic in a very approachable way for a western mindset. Damo's skillful and practiced abilities as a teacher shine throughout this text.

I assess that Damo is very well practiced in the meditative arts. He has obviously approached nei gung from martial as well as meditative practices. His wide view of how nei gung is applied in many disciplines is where this book offers its greatest value.

I have studied chi kung and nei gung from many disciplines, have read many intriguing and deep texts, (works of Jou Tsung Hwa, Mantak Chia, Yang Jwing-Ming, Bruce Kumar Frantzis, Kam Chuen Lam, Hale Dwoskin to name a very short few)

Damo's text had just as much impact as any of these. It might have been that my background prepared me for his message, but I suspect.that anyone just beginning work in this area will benefit greatly. I wish I could have read this book years ago.

Thank you Damo Mitchell!
