Vital Breath of the Dao is a fully illustrated guide to the historical background, practical application, underlying principles and techniques of Qigong, a way of physical and spiritual cultivation, and a way of life. Chinese Shamanic Tiger Qigong is a uniquely potent practice designed to bolster health and deepen spiritual connection to universal energy. Lineage holder Master Zhongxian Wu uses story-telling and a wealth of practical examples to introduce this powerful 24-movement Qigong form, which combines the traditions of ancient shamanism, Confucianism, Daoism, classical Chinese medicine, and the martial arts.

An excellent introduction for Qigong beginners, the book will also be of interest to experienced practitioners, students of classical Chinese Medicine and anyone interested in Classical Chinese culture and anthropology.

Press Reviews

  • Jessica Kingsley, Founder of Singing Dragon and long-term student

    The first edition of The Vital Breath of the Dao, providing as it did a much richer and more rounded view of the Daoist way than anything hitherto published, was the inspiration for the launch of Singing Dragon. This new edition, refined and expanded, speaks even more clearly of the way in which the Daoist arts of cosmology, language, nature, philosophy, poetry, calligraphy, the way of tea, and shamanic Qigong practice are the ingredients in a way of life accessible to all of us seeking a deeper reality. From both an intellectual and a practical point of view, this book can change your life - it certainly changed mine. These practices improve health, temper the mind and the emotions, and deepen one's spiritual life.
