Editor reviews

Qi Gong for Beginners is summed up very well by the text from the back cover above. Despite being written by an academic it maintains a clear focus on those new to qi gong and Eastern spiritual and energy medicine practices as a whole. As such it is makes for an easy read when the subject matter could easily have led the author to overcomplicate things.

The first section of the book is dedicated to explaining the basics of Eastern philosophy such as qi/chi and the opposing yet complementary forces of yin and yang required to understand the basis for how qi gong works.

The author then goes on to describe the history of qi gong and the particular form of the practice known as Pal Dan Gum on which the book focuses. The importance of deep breathing is explained clearly and concisely and the differences between qi gong and traditional Western exercise are discussed - essentially providing the reader with the knowledge that qi gong actually increases energy levels as opposed to traditional exercise such as running or cycling which do the opposite.

The final section of the book is what really makes this so perfect for the beginner however as it is composed of clear instructions for the eight exercise sequences that make up Pal Dan Gum qi gong. The instructions are accompanied by extremely clear photos and drawings that make learning qi gong at home acheiveable by anyone in a very short time.

It took me a week of daily practice to have all eight exercises memorised and I was soon completing them within 10 minutes. As for the benefits of the practice of qi gong as taught by this book - I noticed them from the very first attempt I made at the exercises. A feeling of being energised, of lightness, and a lifting of my mood. I have continued to see increasing benefits over the past couple of months and can't see myself ever giving up on this quick, simple, and highly beneficial daily practice. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to enhance their health and general well-being with minimal time or effort.
