A Comprehensive Guide to Daoist Nei Gong
Available August 2018
Nei Gong is the practice leading to attainment of real internal skill and transformation, and the philosophical art of change that runs through all Daoist practice. This book provides an unprecedented insight into the entire Nei Gong process, expanding upon the foundations laid in the author’s previous widely read book, Daoist Nei Gong, to provide a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the practice. Going into unparalleled detail whilst remaining accessible, it explains the philosophy at the heart of Nei Gong practice, and the steps whereby transformation is achieved. A foundational knowledge of Chinese medicine will help the reader appreciate the explanation more deeply, but is not required for understanding. Essential reading for all serious practitioners of Qi Gong and the Daoist tradition, the book will also be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Chinese medicine, martial arts or advanced meditation.
The Most Detailed Volume on Daoist Nei Gong in the English Language
Coming in August will be Damo Mitchell’s most detailed and complete book on the Daoist internal arts. Published by Singing Dragon, A Comprehensive Guide to Daoist Nei Gong delves into many of the more commonly misunderstood areas of internal practice and explores exactly what is involved in each stage of the training. Beginning with a look at the foundation of the arts, the book then progresses through many stages of complex energetic practice into development of the Shen. Subjects such as the micro-cosmic orbit, Dan Tian development, Qi regulation, harmonisation of Yin and Yang and much more are looked at and explained using both contemporary models and classical sources.
A Lengthy Tome
At over twice the length of any of Damo’s previous titles, this is the most in depth work he has ever produced. It is his hope that the book will serve to answer many of the questions that arise within the internal arts community. It is the result of over three decades of dedicated study of the eastern arts with various masters around the world. It is there process he has practiced and the process he leads his own students through on his courses and in classes around the world.
