Présentation de l'éditeur

The first English translation of Master Li Ching-yun's teachings on the Eight Brocades, the central practice of qigong.

• Explains the physical and spiritual benefits of the Eight Brocades and offers step-by-step instructions for this powerful sequence of postures.

• 85 illustrations highlight the postures and philosophies.

• Author's commentary provides insight and depth to the original translation.

Throughout history Taoists have promoted the development and restoration of the Three Treasures-- body, breath, and spirit--through the gentle practice of qigong. At the center of the qigong practice are the Eight Brocades, a series of postures that developed during the 3,000-year Taoist quest for longevity and vitality. Now qigong expert Stuart Olson translates into English Master Li Ching-yun's treasured teachings on the Eight Brocades. One of the most famous qigong masters of this century, Master Li Ching-yun is reliably chronicled to have lived more than 250 years, during which he practiced the Eight Brocades on a daily basis. His longevity and personal endorsements attest to and validate the Eight Brocades as the quintessence of Taoist health and qigong practices. 

With Master Li Ching-yun's original teachings as a guide, Stuart Olson presents an authentic yet accessible approach to this unique practice. Each exercise is accompanied by original text from Master Li, step-by-step instructions for each posture, illustrations of the positions, and insights on theory and practice. Because the Eight Brocades are the foundation of all qigong, this book provides valuable advice for all practitioners, regardless of the style they practice or the depth of their experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 excellent ... 23 avril 2008
Par timotheus - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've always been indifferent to doing the eight brocades as many books that are around are very ill informed about how these ancient practices should be done. However; after studying qigong and taichi for several years I came across this book and it was presented completely differently from any other books on brocades I had seen and for some reason was compelled to buy it. Having read and practiced the exercises along with his book on the 'Jade emperors mind seal classic'; I can assure that Mr Olson has a very good understanding of the three treasures and the practice of qigong; and whats more can convey the information in a readable and interesting way without being pedantic. It is a valued addition to my regime of qigong that I've learnt from other qigong masters and one of the few qigong practices you could safely and competently learn from a book as the movements are simple; and the results speak for themselves.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 True Taoist Qigong in the Best Tradition 9 février 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is one of the very few "how-to" books on Qigong cultivation for serious practioners only. Olson has turned what is mostly an anecdotal practice into both an erudite art and science. The practises (which are very detailed) travel the path from a basic fitness regime, if thats your motive for practice, to the full esoteric exposition of qigong. Study of this type of Qigong is a lifetime commitment. Highly recommended. !

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too Much Author 24 octobre 2011
Par David Sterkin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've worked extensively with this book and I can only say that it is flawed in many ways. It reflects, as does his other books, a sort of spiritual grandstanding that Olson can't seem to control. All his books are "the first" or the "most complete". His book on his teacher, T.T. Liang, is considered by some people in the martial community to be disrespectful and, once again, really about Olson. Getting back to this text it shows the same tendency in a different way. He divides it up into the original writings and his own commentaries then goes ahead and sticks commentary everywhere he wants to say something. He focuses on details some of which are, frankly, arcane and not particularly useful also showing gullibility unusual in those who have hung around Chinese qigong and martial styles for any length of time ("This is the real meaning... Only my teacher... sort of thing). He dismisses out of hand the ONLY visual reference to the material, namely the surviving wood blocks and, worse, substitutes positions he thinks are right. His translational skills seem good but, again, too casually mixing his own "voice" so that you cannot distinguish the "original" sections from his own commentary (the sections are supposed to divide everthing but it often is not clear). This, ultimately, is the real problem: you get the feeling that Olson intentionally mixed his sources to add to his authority and that is a flaw that neutralizes much of what is interesting and insightful in the book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 translating li ching yuen must be tough 21 mars 2010
Par Tai Olde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
i am not really fully qualified to review this work. i am not even 50 years yet. almost.
i am really happy to get more insight on the life and thought of li ching yuen. this is an honest attempt to present his take on qi gong. for that the author deserves full appreciation.
i have read the work and have spent about a month with it, reviewing the exercises. much of it is good.. however the 5th and 6th brocade are not clear in my mind even after repeated readings.
a lighter touch may have been better on a few other points as well.. but it is very good work and a pioneering effort.
the subject matter is great.. and belongs on the shelf next to mantak chia.. but the work needs more polish.. a finer touch is required.. since there is nothing else in english i can find at least, it is worthwhile .. 3.5 stars.
