Cultivating Stillness: A Taoist Manual for Transforming Body and Mind Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Equanimity, good health, peace of mind, and long life are the goals of the ancient Taoist tradition known as "internal alchemy," of which Cultivating Stillness is a key text. Written between the second and fifth centuries, the book is attributed to T'ai Shang Lao-chun—the legendary figure more widely known as Lao-Tzu, author of the Tao-te Ching . The accompanying commentary, written in the nineteenth century by Shui-ch'ing Tzu, explains the alchemical symbolism of the text and the methods for cultivating internal stillness of body and mind. A principal part of the Taoist canon for many centuries, Cultivating Stillness is still the first book studied by Taoist initiates today.

Synopsis:

An ancient Taoist text explains the tradition of "internal alchemy" and is accompanied by a commentary which explains the symbolism of the text and the methods for cultivating internal stillness of body and mind.

Synopsis:

She has written and translated many books on Taoism and related topics, including A Master Course in Feng-Shui; Tales of the Taoist Immortals; and Taoism: An Essential Guide.
