From the Author
This book presents an age-old system for resolving the essential spiritual difficulties of human life, including those that might seem to be unique to our modern computer age. From the Taoist perspective, our age's spiritual dissonance is a result of a profound disconnection between our bodies, hearts, and souls. The Taoist solution is to reconnect and integrate ourselves, both internally and with our environment. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The taoist philosophy and explanation of the differences between fire and water methods of working with energy are insightful and useful for getting an Eastern perpsective on energy work, often lacking in the majority of western books on said subject. The exercises definitely work and will have an effect on you, in a variety of manners. I do urge readers not to take these exercises too lightly...practice them diligently, but be open to what experiences occur, as you will find yourself examining a lot of the emotional and mental triggers that are embedded in the fluid stream of your consciousness.
If nothing else, consider that this book provides a different way of understanding how you breath and that such perspective can be very enlightening...For the occultist this is a must have book! Ten stars out of five
