There is almost nothing in this book about breathing - other than to breathe naturally - I suspect the title is a mistranslation, and perhaps would be better rendered as "Wujishi Qigong Exercise".
This book is all about standing. Why to stand, how to stand, where to stand, when to stand, undesirable side effects, desirable side effects. The correct posture is described in incredible detail but with only a few illustrations - which are line drawings. The illustrations seem quite adequate to me, however I stand daily and this is the seventh(?) book I've read on this topic.
It is one of the few texts* that explain about "keeping three points on a straight line" - creating the correct alignment of the "strategic channel" (chong mai) with the bubbling spring, perineum point and the crown - baihui, huixin, midline of the line connecting the two yongquan points.
It explains in detail the TCM effects of standing - beginning with the tonification of the spleen and regulation of the spleen and kidneys and numerous other results. It explains how in the course of standing the small and large heavenly circulation will open along with numerous other channels.Read more ›
