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 Healing.co.uk

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.

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.
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!
