For example, some of the "Keys" are breathing deeply and gently, drinking enough water,...etc...
There are fairly good number of basic exercises, that I give them credit for...but they are described in a few pages...From what I have seen in other books, there are enough nuances that are significant, that describing them with a few blocks of text and a few simplistic diagrams is not nearly enough..
This book is lightly better than Internal Martial Arts Nei-gong: Cultivating ...
I reccomend these authors: Mantak Chia, B.K. Frantzis, Wong Kew Kit, Damo Mitchell, C.K. Chu. God, do I appreciate those authors now more than ever...
Meaning I too, in the first part of book was like "oh gee I know this already"- now am I doing it? NO. Then it led into more specific techniques that broke down the original intro chapters in more detail. The author even says we've kept instructions simple and practice simple so you don't run into trouble. Which makes lots of sense. These techniques were secret and taught teacher to student until recently- sot I think both authors are wanting to teach safely. There are many practices here that would be new to a beginner especially if you are new to Taoist practices, as I am. As mentioned I come from a different angle and so these mostly were new and quite helpful to me. I want to own this book-but I actually got it from the library. I recommend it!
It goes into clear detailed explanations of so many different, approachable techniques. It gives so much more than it says on the cover!
I am lucky to have found it, because it reaches in all directions and some of the exercises i read many years ago and forgot.
If you are interested in any aspect of the Tao, this book summarizes tons of golden tricks.
