Description du produit

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.

Being a yoga (Ashtanga / Bikram / Kundalini), and chi gung practitioner, martial artist, and herbalist, I was greatly enthused to have found this book. My passion was piqued when I read the entire google preview, and having seen a very brief introduction to all the brocades on a separate website, I just had to have the book! I went to my local library and had them ship it from the Kalamazoo library. One was rented out and unreturned and the other was patiently waiting. But they quoted me on a 3 week arrival time! So I decided a few days after that the rental alone will not do, and set out to Amazon to order a copy.

Lo and behold the book arrived early, and my thirst for the seated 8 brocades was quenched. I read the whole thing and performed them immediately, and felt immensely charged as my whole body filled with warmth. However I did find a few typos and contradictions in the book which slightly added to the confusion of interpreting an alleged age old martial art via a textbook with a few pictures. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I plan on writing Stuart a letter to address this and maybe land an editing job?? Wink wink, haha, but anyways these practices are *essential* to anyone from the serious practitioner of martial arts/yoga/chi gung, pro athletes, the average joe who smokes pot and works a simple job, grandma and grandpa, or a hermit who lives in the woods and is looking for a way to harmonize his mind/body/spirit in an efficient manner. Each brocade stimulates particular organs and glands, that even the out of shape beginner will feel the flow and effects of 'Qi' quite quickly.

Stu does an excellent job at describing each brocade in immense detail, and offers a few extra exercises, some lore and stories, as well as advice for those practicing these arts. I noticed benefit in the additional teachings as well, and plan on including them into daily practice. I have found nothing quite like this seated section of the 8 brocades, and was quite impressed by the genius of this ancient technique.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but difficult to sort directions. Needs a serious reader to figure out what needs to be done 4 mai 2013
Par Gene Shafer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
OK, this book has got a lot of great information. BUT, it is poorly written. There are so many. Typographical errors that it is difficult at times to sort out just what I needed to do. Like one place he states the reason for doing 24 of something and gives 23 reasons. ( The number 24 is contained in The Secret of the Hands: limitless..... Two powers, Four images, Eight diagrams, Nine opening ( total 23). Represent the 24 Breathes.) Information from Li Ching-yun says do something 18 times, the author says do it 36 times. Another spot the author is writing about doing the right hand version, throws in a comment about the left, then the next statement belongs to which? I've just stated three examples, there area about 20 that I've found so far. At the beginning of the book the author thanks the publisher for their help in editing. Either the publisher needs to be shot or? However all said and done, I've been using the routines as well as I can figure them and have had tremendous results with my energy. So, it's a great book, but it will take endurance to read it 6-8 times to sort out the routine. I've read it 6 times so far and need to do so a few more.

This book teaches Olson's version of the seated Eight Pieces of Brocade. I have had little experience with that qi gong set so I can't comment on its efficacy, whereas I have experience with the standing version, and think it's great. Some books, like those by Yang Jwing Ming, teach both for the price of one, and with more clarity than Olson offers. He TRIES to explain the exercises, and most of them are simple enough that there is no problem learning them. But when movement is required, it's sometimes not possible to get a clear idea from the book and the scant photos. He has a DVD and you can see samples on his website, and that's likely clearer, but frankly I think they should be sold together or either should be sufficient. So my issue is not with the quality of the info but the clarity of the communication. He knows the theory and he knows the practice but there are books that are better for the 8 Pieces of Brocade including Yang's and Lam Kam Chuen teaches the set in The Way of Energy, but only the standing set but with great clarity.

You'll never do all these excercises, but a lot of interesting training tips here. Not sure that the excercises are that well explained either. But certainly worth looking at.
