Présentation de l'éditeur

Tranquil Sitting is the Taoist Master Yin Shi Zi's practical guide and inspirational testament to the healing power and spiritual benefits of meditation and Chinese medical Qigong.

The book explores the theory and physiological aspects of meditation and offers practical instruction in traditional meditation techniques. It also documents Yin Shi Zi's personal experiences with meditation, his own self-healing which he attributes to his Taoist practice, and his initiation into the Tibetan tantric practice of opening the crown of the head. Thus giving the reader an idea of the long-term process of meditation practice and the deep healing that can result from it.

Faithfully translated from the Chinese, this is an influential text that belongs on the bookshelves of everyone with an interest in Taoist practice and meditation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book for meditators 22 mars 2014
Par notsocajun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is an exceptionally practical book with clear and detailed instructions for meditation, including a great amount of detail on the bodily processes involved. While short, it's packed with detailed instructions and explanations that any practitioner can immediately implement.

One distinguishing point on the practices, experiences and explanations provided in this book - there is plenty of detail on what to do, why and how, along with what will happen, but there is nearly no mention of religious principles, doctrines or admonitions - despite the author's foundation in both Taoism and Tien Tai Buddhism. This for me makes the book all the more useful and accessible.

If one has any questions regarding the author's qualifications, the second section includes the author's own struggle with both illness and life's excesses, which drew him to the Taoist path. Also included are eight accounts of his own exceptional experiences meditating. This section is fascinating and presents an unusual level of insight into the physical experience associated with higher meditative states.

I've read and re-read this book and have found some of the basic instructions around adjusting the posture and breath very helpful. Part one of the book, which runs just 33 pages, includes the theory of Taoist meditation, its physiological features and specific steps for meditation, as well as techniques for overcoming common obstacles.
The techniques presented in latter part of part one have encouraged me to return to the basics of my own practice and the specific focus on breath also supports my own Tai Chi practice.

I'd recommend for novice, experienced and even expert meditators.

A curious but interesting addition is the author's more recent experience (at the age of 74) with Tibetan Mahamudra practice, including, again, fascinating detail, but also serious cautions regarding implementing the practices outlines without sufficient expert guidance. Those familiar with the Tibetan Book of the Dead will likely enjoy this brief addition.

Much of the book is a fairly detailed account of the author's meditative experiences, but presented in a laundry-list kind of way: On such an such a day I felt this sensation here, then I felt this other sensation there, etc. It's a good presentation of the kinds of experiences you can have with intensive meditation, but there is little material tying it all together or giving meaningful interpretation of the experiences.
