Though we have forgotten how to access them, these components are in fact elemental parts of us.andnbsp; The author explains that we first must open our minds to the fact that the power of ch'i is real. Next, in learning to control our ch'i as a whole, we must learn to channel our yang energy in productive ways--a potential we all possess. To help readers understand their capacity to connect with this inner elemental power, the author offers a fascinating blend of teachings that include sound scientific theories explaining much of the "magic" of nei kung. He also offers historical, linguistic, artistic, and literary proof of the presence and understanding of nei kung throughout the ages and a step-by-step introduction to several types of simple meditation--fundamental to directing one's ch'i.andnbsp; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;With his engaging storytelling and disarming humor, his physics-based explanations for seemingly mystical phenomena, and his reassurances that he's really no different from the rest of us, Kosta Danaos shows us that once we remember our capacity to harness our yang energy, we can change ourselves and our world.

Synopsis:

Explains the science behind the practice of nei kung, the elemental nature of yin and yang energy--the two components of ch'i, and how learning to control the yang energy in our ch'i can result in the release of dynamic energy.

Synopsis:

Explains the art and science behind nei kung and how its dynamic use of yang energy distinguishes it from other practices that teach the mastery of c'hi. x Establishes the existence and understanding of nei kung in the practices of many of the world's ancient cultures. x Includes a step-by-step guide to the meditation that forms the basis of the practice of nei kung. x By Kosta Danaos, author of The Magus of Java and apprentice to an immortal of the Mo-Pai tradition. More than a decade ago, Kosta Danaos was accepted as an apprentice by John Chang, a Chinese-Javanese Taoist immortal and a master of nei kung. Unlike c'hi kung and other methods of mastering c'hi, nei kung uses the body's yin energy reserves to compress solar yang energy into the region of the body known as the dantien through meditation, breath retention, and physical exercises. The stored yang energy literally alters an individual's mental and physical makeup--it even modifies DNA structure--and gives the practitioner superior powers such as pyrokinesis, telekinesis, levitation, telepathy, and more. At one time this practice was part of the working knowledge of shamans and martial artists throughout the world, but with the shifting of religious authority from shamans to priests the practice was abandoned and almost forgotten. Now, for the first time, modern readers are offered a step-by-step guide to the once-secret meditation practice that is the foundation of nei kung, the basis that, if followed regularly, allows control of yang energy--the first step on the path of becoming a Taoist immortal. With his engaging storytelling and clear, physics-based explanations for seemingly mystical phenomena, Kosta Danaos once again reveals the power of a practice that ultimately could transform our destructive, materialistic vision of the world to one based on cosmic principles--what the Chinese called the "will of Heaven."
