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

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 "tendar" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
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
Format:Broché
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great In-depth Coverage and Introduction to Taoist Qigong 13 juin 2012
Par Abu Husayn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
To be perfectly honest, mostly because of my facination with Li Ching-yun and his reported longevity (said to have lived to over 250 years!), and a desire for a Qigong exercise that would help to promote my own health, I turned to Stuart Alve Olson's book. I was presently surprised. The author is very knowledgeable, and takes his time to provide not only the background to the Taoist practice and brief biography of major contributors to the art, but also provides extensive explanations into everything from various breathing practices, clothing, and even time of day for practice. He answered many questions that I had about qigong that I did not find in other books or online (unfortunately where I live, there are no teachers available). His explanations of the exercises are clear, along with a clear translation of Li Ching-yun's commentaries. Some criticisms by some commentators seem unfair to me, to be perfectly honest. Firstly, without his own commentary and explanations, if he had decided to rely solely upon his translation of Ching-yun's words, it would have left the practices incoherent to I am sure the majority of readers. Secondly, why shouldn't he feel strongly about the philosophy of the teachers he studied with? Without such passion and commitment, it would have caused the work to be ineffective. He is merely conveying what he learned and what he practices. Fair enough. I don't think he is doing a kind of "self-righteous grandstanding" as one reviewer suggest. He just believes in what he is doing and lets you know it.

Having said that, there is a major problem I have with his take. Namely, he is dismissive of "reverse breathing" which forms the core of the qigong practices of the much celebrated Shaolin Monastery. This hints at a lack of respect for the qigong practices of others; especially, when you consider that if the common legend of the origin of qigong is to be believed, Shaolin is the birthplace of the practice; he could have just left it at informing his readers not to practice this form of breathing when doing the exercises he is teaching rather than making a sarcastic remark about the practice itself. Another problem with the book, but in reality may be a problem with the notion of qigong in general, I thought I was purchasing a book that would strengthen my practice of the Eight Silken Brocade that I was already practicing, but ended up with a seated set of exercises that had little to do with what I considered the Eight Silken Brocade. Purchasers should be aware of this.

In the end, I would recommend that book and there many jewels of wisdom and knowledge contained within its pages; I don't think most people will be disappointed.
