Présentation de l'éditeur

We live in a fast-paced, busy world, and many of us are stressed out and anxious as a result. If you suffer from anxiety but have found little relief from modern western treatments, or if you are looking for complimentary treatment, the ancient practice of qigong—which can be understood as the cultivation of internal energy—may offer you relief.

Qigong is rooted in Chinese philosophy and medicine, and it utilizes breathing, movement, and awareness exercises to promote healing and aid in meditation. In The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety, world-renowned and respected qigong master Kam Chuen Lam presents the first workbook for overcoming anxiety problems utilizing traditional Chinese energy-focusing exercises. By following these simple and accessible step-by-step exercises, readers will learn to transform feelings of anxiety into resilience and inner strength. The workbook also contains helpful illustrations to help you carry out these exercises.

In the book, Lam will help you think about anxiety, and yourself, in a different way—as a whole. You’ll also learn to stop resisting moments of anxiety and other strong emotions, but rather to embrace them within the larger flow of your body’s energy field. By doing this, you will ultimately strengthen and cultivate the natural energy you possess.

Author Kam Chuen Lam has been a traditional Chinese healer for over forty years, and is an internationally respected authority on the Chinese health systems of Chi Kung and Tai Chi. To find out more, visit www.lamkamchuen.org.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Respected Chinese QiGong Master provides the secret to being free of fear and anxiety and finding inner peace 29 juin 2014
Par Susanna Hutcheson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I accidentally discovered Master Kam Chuen Lam when I found an old VHS of his Stand and be Fit. I was captured by his enthusiasm and knowledge and his terrific personality that comes across easily. I liked the way he did the video on location in China and above all, I liked the way the simple exercises made me feel. I liked the energy they gave me and the strength I felt.

And so, when I discovered he had a new book and it was on a topic I have a good deal of interest in, anxiety, I wanted badly to read it and apply it to my daily life.

In the past I would try to avoid thinking about things that made me anxious or troubled. But Master Lam teaches a very different approach. He writes:

"In the ancient tradition of qigong, which is a way of working with all forms of energy, trying to avoid our actual experience is not considered healthy. Whatever we are experiencing is part of the total energetic field, both around us and in us. The more we are open to it, the more power we can draw from it."

And so, I started to allow the feelings to do their worst. I found, as a result, they would diminish as I stood like a tree and did the other simple energy producing exercises he teaches in the book. The Qigong exercises are a form of Zhan Zhuang which means "standing like a tree" and is roughly pronounced "Jan Juang", or, in southern China, "Jam Jong". This is the method he teaches in his video "Stand Still and Be Fit" (1995) and the one that is helping me so much. It's now on You Tube if you'd like to view it. And it's a form he teaches in this book. In the current book, however, many of the exercises are done sitting rather than standing.

This new work is in a workbook format so that you can follow the exercises illustrated in the book and record your own progress over time. It is very interactive and unique to your needs.

With this book, you will learn to relate yourself and your anxiety in a manner very different from the familiar western perspective. You will also learn to recognize your inner resistance to those moments of anxiety and other overwhelming emotions.

Master Kam Chuen Lam has been a traditional Chinese healer for over forty years. He is also an internationally respected authority in the Chinese health systems of qigong and tai chi. He has produced over ten titles on these subjects and they have been sold across the world in over 17 languages.

In these wonderful, empowering exercises you'll learn to turn feelings of anxiety into resilience and inner strength. The workbook also contains illustrations to help you easily do the exercises. Anyone can do them. They require no equipment and are simple to learn and put into action immediately. The author has incredibly effective communications skills and writes in an easy flowing style that makes reading a pleasure. And it makes learning very easy and even fun.

There are many forms of qigong. This method was taught to Master Lam by his Master, Professor Yu. Master Lam says in the book, "The fundamental practice of wi ji is to align yourself, normally in a standing position, so that your body is centered, well-balanced, and upright -- and to remain in that position, without moving, while you progressively relax all your muscle groups, until the flow of energy within you and around you gives you what might be called a complete energy bath." He then goes on to show you how to practice wu ji. Wuji (pinyin) or Wu Chi (Wade-Giles) is an important component of Taoist cosmology. It is the Chinese word used to point to the unmanifest aspect of Tao, or Tao-in-stillness. It is this stillness that allows the nervous system to calm down and for you to regain your peace of mind and empowerment.

"Standing still in wu ji helps calm your nervous system. This process of relaxation is vital to your health and well-being. If your nervous system is agitated, the flow of energy throughout your body is seriously impeded. As you stand in wu ji, follow the following inner relaxation sequence." He then describes the method for you. He adds:

"Inner relaxation is the secret of all health and well-being. As you practice the postures and movements in this book, your inner work is to relax -- whether you are standing still or moving. You can then carry this inner relaxation with you throughout your day, whatever you are doing."

But, there is more in the book than exercises. The book is a complete guide to overcoming fear and anxiety and you'll discover how to use your senses to help you become calm and centered and deal with your fears and anxieties. You'll learn to use your sense of smell, vision and hearing. You'll also learn how to take tea in a way that will have a calming effect. You'll read:

"So what should you do if you want to use the power of taste in an intelligent way and not succumb to the unhealthy eating habits of the modern world? There is an ancient tradition - famous in China, but also enjoyed throughout the rest of the world - that I highly recommend: drinking tea. Drinking a cup of tea is a way of engaging all our senses in a sophisticated way. There's the shimmering surface of the tea in the cup, the aroma that arises from the steaming tea, the delightful sound of the tea being poured from the pot into the cup, the warmth of the cup in your hands, and the taste of the tea itself. Every culture has its own version of a tea ceremony. Whether it is in a Middle Eastern market, a stately home in Europe, a Japanese teahouse, an Indian garden, or a Western restaurant, tea works its magic."

There's so much more in the book than I'd expected. It even gives you a daily schedule that will help you win the battle over fear and anxiety. It's truly a book of healing. It is also, however, a book of empowerment whether you suffer from anxiety or not. And do not be misled by the use of the word Qigong. Qigong simply means Life Energy Cultivation. It has its roots in Chinese medicine and while there are forms of martial arts Qigong, this is not that sort of Qigong. These are gentle exercises that result in calming, rooting, peace and inner happiness. They give you release from your fears and anxieties. They are proven to work. They've worked for thousands of years and some say it was passed on in secret transmission in China.

While the exercises are calming and healing, there's more to them. Contrary to the most common notion of cardiovascular exercise necessitating vigorous movement, it is said that zhan zhuang confers significant physical conditioning. Postures used vary among martial arts and styles, with many schools using postures according to their own traditional forms (though the basic structure and principles of zhan zhuang practice largely do not vary). The type used in this book are healing and give energy.

Do these exercises work? They do for me. The Tao Te Ching, penned by the beloved Laozi, says, "By standing alone and unchanging, you will find that everything comes to you and the energy of the cosmos will never be exhausted."

The Taoist philosopher Zhuangzi tells us that the sages of old were "still and unmoved . . . Their breathing came deep and silent." Their "minds were free from all disturbance . . . forgetting everything." They were "open to everything and forgot all fear of death."

Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For me, a life-changing book... 12 décembre 2014
Par Readaholic Chick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I hadn't yet written a review, because I haven't been reading the book straight from start to finish, so technically I'm not "done" yet. But I love it! I have others of Master Lam's books, have been doing qigong shibashi virtually daily for almost two years and zhan zhuang and ba duan jin for about 18-20 months. This daily practice has revolutionized my life, helping me improve my physical and psychological health beyond my wildest expectations; I won't say more because words are inadequate to express my gratitude and I tend to get tangled up trying to say all I'd love to say on the subject. I'm a certified yoga teacher and have studied yoga and Buddhism and the work of contemporary spiritual teachers for over 40 years and with great affection and no disrespect whatsoever, never got as much out of them as from the two years invested in what I affectionately call "my Chinese exercises." But the Qigong Workbook is important to me because it helped me bridge a disconnect between designated practice periods and the rest of my life. When I got it, I was still rather anxious and stressed-out in everyday life, and Master Lam and Professor Yu have provided simple, unobtrusive exercises that little by little are freeing me from those mindsets and behaviors–a lifetime of bad habits really. I'm now confident that I have the tools to center myself and "bring myself down" when even life's most trivial annoyances threaten my well-being, which happens less and less the more I use them and am getting through more serious problems with an equanimity I never thought would be possible for me back when I saw myself as one of those sad people who just couldn't meditate. I admit to not doing the worksheets very much, so I kind of wish there were a pocket version without them, but I do keep the Kindle version on my iPhone so I can refer to it any time I feel the need, which is less and less as the exercises become more familiar and my anxiety lessens. I've got both Kindle and pb versions myself and am giving copies to two of my best friends for Christmas this year because I can't think of a better, more loving gift, whether or not they come to love and value it as much as I do or not. It's an invaluable, worthwhile investment even if you've never done "Chinese exercises," yoga or studied any Eastern philosophy, and certainly contains nothing that would conflict with or undermine any religion. It's solely about relaxation and relief from stress and anxiety. I can't recommend it too highly.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing compared to the author's previous books 19 novembre 2014
Par Nelson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I found the author's previous books including the Way of Energy to be some of the clearest approaches to learn Qigong exercises from a book.
The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety did not offer the same concise hands-on instructions and pictures that made the prior books so effective.
Instead, it has a very slick and contemporary layout but is very short on content.

So far it looks like some simple and basic Quigong movements and examples of when and what to apply it to. There are worksheets in it with a few questions to help you reflect and see/monitor your progress. The title is accurate.
