By AlchemistGeorge VINE VOICE on October 9, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very short book, less than 76 pages long, plus appendix, index, etc. The pages are small, too.

The book is written assuming that you have some familiarity with TCM, the Yi-Jing (I Ching), Taoism, Chinese martial arts, etc. Although the book is written very clearly, and the practices described seem quite simple, I think this book is best for someone with a lot of background in this area.

The first section is an extensive discourse (36 pages) on the 8 trigrams of the Bagua (Pakua), mostly about the four cardinal trigrams Heaven, Earth, Fire and Water. There is a long discussion of how these four relate, and how this relates to alchemy - the Taoist process of refining and transmuting the energies of the body to create the `elixir of immortality'.

Most of the discussion of the trigrams, the bagua, and the relative positions of the trigrams in the bagua is over my head. Second, the author talks in terms of earth, air, fire, water, which I believe is a western perspective. My (limited) understanding of Chinese alchemy is that it is based on the five elements (metal, fire, water, wood, earth). While I think it is possible that the author is mistaken in some way about the relevant symbolism, this does not (to my mind) in any way invalidate the techniques.

Next there are 36 pages on the five techniques. All five are the same posture - wuji standing - zhan zhaung standing in the wuji position, and the book gives instructions on how to stand. Each technique must be mastered (and the result obtained) before moving on to the next one, and the expected results from each technique are described pretty clearly.

Within a few weeks, the information in this book accelerated my qigong sessions.

If it is, indeed, a "shortcut" as suggested by another reviewer, it is effective.

Curious why the author chose to associate this practice with the Western four elements, rather than the Chinese five, but really it is of no consequence. The practice works, and works well.

I appreciate the simplicity of this book. Indeed it is so simple the pertinent points might sneak by. Though you could read it in one sitting it is best to take small chunks and assimilate before going to the next step. No hurry with this practice.
