The Empty Vessel
This book is the first one that I am aware of, at least, that teaches these important and oh so helpful practices from a seated position. There are many people who, because of various infirmities, cannot do the standing practices but there is really lots that can be done from a chair.... So I am happy to see this very valuable book come out. If you are in a chair yourself or know someone who is interested in qi practice who is confined to a chair get them this book!
