The first practice is called "inner smile". In essence this involves focusing upon the smiling, happy, energy and directing it to different parts of your body. As you relax your mind, emotions and body into this smiling energy, any stress and tension you may feel is bound to be released.
The next set of practices covered in this book are six healing sounds. In Taoist tradition, specific emotions are associated with different organs in your body and so are different sounds which help to clear any energetic obstacles in these organs. Sounds, and accompaning movements are designed to clear and balance the energy of the particular organ. Working with healing sounds also involves focusing upon the imagery (in the simplest form a color) associated with the particular organ.
Five healing sounds are associated with organs in the body - heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and spleen. Sixty healing sound is associated not with the organ, but with the triple warmed meridian. Working with this sixth sound will deeply relax you and if you suffer from insomnia, it may also help you to fall asleep.
This is a wonderfully no-silliness, no-fluff, practacal guide to some Taoist meditations that I've found work quite well. They may seem strange to western eyes, but if you give them a chance, I think you'll be pleased with the results.
Taoist health practices which will provide much needed stress relief.
A primer on Toist meditation, this is a great book for Westerners to start with.
As with all of Master Chia's works, this book presents rare information
in a concise and very understandable format.
* Awaken Healing Energy Through the Tao.
* Taoist Secrets of Love.
* Taoist Ways to Transform Stress into Vitality.
Only the first of these safely describes the central MICROCOSMIC ORBIT, stating that the energy must be collected at the navel after exercising. Read that book!

a little too esoteric...I wish this book was more applicable to the real western world; as the concepts are sound just too airy fairy for true application.Published on February 8, 2014 by Reader
