Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Elise and Kaleo have been my teachers, colleagues and co-explorers on the road of art and healing, energy medicine and guided imagery for many years. This incredible book is a real teacher and valuable tool for anyone interested in living, dying and rebirth.”—Michael Samuels, MD, author of The Well Body Book, Seeing with the Mind’s Eye, and Healing with the Arts
“Kaleo and Elise’s creativity and understanding lead the reader to connect with his or her own inner spirit and inspiration.

As masters of Qigong, they embody the wisdom of which they speak!”—Jim Garrison, PhD, president and CEO of Ubiquity University, founder of the State of the World Forum, and author of Civilization and the Transformation of Power and Climate Change and the Primordial Mind

Présentation de l'éditeur

Tapping the tremendous healing power of Qigong and the expressive arts, this beautiful book invites the reader to contemplate the continuum of living, dying, and renewal within this life and beyond. The stories, Qigong meditations, and journaling/art processes, including collage and maskmaking, are invitations for you to engage them for your own healing, transformation, and wisdom. 

Authors, artists, healers, and teachers of Qigong and art, Elise and Kaleo Ching draw on their 23 years of experience working with others on their paths of personal transformation to present an approach to living and dying that is saturated with wisdom, compassion, and understanding. Through their work, the authors have witnessed many personal journeys of dying, transformation, rebirth--facing terminal illness or loss of a loved one, letting go of old lifestyles and embracing new, connecting with past lives and future dreams. The stories and processes in this book will inspire a wide range of people interested in using Qigong practices and meditations, journaling, and art for self-cultivation, mindfulness, spiritual awareness, and healing: artists, clergy, spiritual seekers, psychotherapists, hypnotherapists, social workers, chaplains, hospice workers, teachers, students and practitioners of transformative, shamanic, and healing arts.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read book at the cutting edge of human consciousness 19 septembre 2014
Par gmarin - Publié sur
Format: Broché
At 242 pages, The Creative Art of Living, Dying and Renewal by Elise & Kaleo Ching is much larger and richer than it appears. From their first word,“Mahalo,” the authors introduce us to the very heart of the spirit that gave birth to their beautiful book. Mahalo nui loa: gratitude, in Hawaiian culture, does not come as an empty word. It comes from the depths of a humble place in the heart, with the immensity and the fire intensity of the almighty Mauna Loa, the tall smoky mountain, the biggest volcano of the Hawaiian archipelago.

In this book, the authors use personal experience gained through careers as a registered nurse (Elise), as a healer (Kaleo) and as teachers of the internal healing work (Qigong) and of art and writing as healing modalities. Their combined knowledge of traditional sacred Hawaiian healing practice, classical Chinese medicine, hypnotherapy, and transpersonal psychology infuse this book with an understanding and discernment difficult to find anywhere else.

The Creative Art of Living, Dying and Renewal brings the reader to a most taboo subject in our Western civilization: Death – and how to face imminent personal death and how to deal, at a very personal level, with the death of family members and friends close to us from a completely emotional, non-rational perspective. Then, the book progressively brings us to possibilities that are way beyond the scope of our ordinary Western education regarding both sciences and religion. It is truly mind expanding! Without judgment, criticism, or cultural comparisons, the reader is naturally and easily brought through stories and testimonies about death and dying, alternating with personal introversion practices, leading to an authentic opening of the senses. This is true teaching mastery arising from the authors’ lifetimes of interacting with patients, clients, and students, bringing them to a new awakening to life. Death is part of life, and there is no true enjoying of life without being able to face death.

Facing death is a big part of what any well-understood healing process is about. From the holistic Taoist perspective, we get a disease as an attempt to heal. Healing, then, means changing, evolving beyond the state of suffering that triggers sickness. It follows a paradigm where nature is always right, our body is the product of nature perfected during millions of years of evolution, and, therefore, our bodies do not need to be corrected or mechanically fixed. It is ourselves in our bodies that need to evolve and change. We are born to fulfill a life purpose, and by doing so we enjoy life. If something happens to prevent us from enjoying our lives and accomplishing our life purpose, we get sick as a healthy reaction to that unhealthy situation. If we are not able to change or outgrow the patterns that keep us away from our birthrights, then we die…. And when we die we change. Life goes on….

For such a heavy subject, the book is light and easy. It reads like a novel yet maintains connection with our current reality. The authors’ use of artwork is exquisite. They include a section of color photos of their own and students’ art, which underlines the importance of art and creativity in the healing process. Although their students and clients are not always trained artists, they have produced abstract yet precise renderings of their emotional charges, thus validating their emotional state on their way toward change and healing.

This book contains the essence of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Medical Qigong. It offers marvelous guidance into the most esoteric aspects of ancient monastic Taoist practices of meditation and ancient traditional Qigong exercises. It is a wonderful introduction to basic concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist spirituality. It is a window into a different perspective and an appreciation for the healing traditions of Hawaiian culture and other cultures worldwide.

Creative Art of Living, Dying and Renewal is a must read for anyone interested in opening the mind beyond the limits of conventional medical science and religious dogmas. It is an indispensable tool for any professional dealing with dying patients. It is essential to the practitioner of any alternative form of medicine.

Creative Art of Living, Dying and Renewal is a much needed and beautifully written book. Mahalo, much gratitude, to you Elise and Kaleo!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book that draws you in! 2 octobre 2014
Par marjorie ackerman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The characters in the Ching's book are so beautifully described, I could have known them. It was fun to recognize streets, stores, and places in Berkeley that I've known for many years. Tai Chi has been a big part of my life, I've practiced it for 28 years. The information about Qigong practices, breathing techniques, meridians and acupoints has enhanced my Tai Chi practice immeasurably. The meditations, I hope someday will be available on CD. This book was a page turner, a keeper, and one I'll definitely be referring to and discussing with friends.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book to Transform Life and Death 22 septembre 2014
Par eli zabeth - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Kaleo & Elise are masterful teachers. This book is a gift for all who have ever experienced a loss and wandered the labyrinth of their own grief journey,or traveled through their own valley of darkness as they faced a life-threatening illness or traumatic experience, or lived through and on into miracle after facing their own reality of death. It, like all their books, is a powerful guide and friend and teacher that accompanies the reader, sharing experience, strength and hope. The invitations into meditation, journaling and art are well supported by the masterful revelations of the couple's Qigoing practices and master teacher knowledge about the human body and where it keeps and how it releases its grief. This book is a generous expression of their unique integration of body, mind and spirit transformative know how. The full color inclusion of works made in the couple's home studio, as well as works their students made in their classes across the country adds photographic record of the healing power of creativity. This is a deeply personal and powerful book that opens the readers' hearts and minds through practical tools, real stories, and powerful invitation--to go deeper, to emerge whole, to live an authentically mystical miracle--one's own, profound, life.
