Yanling Lee Johnson
"Having a light-hearted attitude towards living is
helpful in finding the truth of life" says Yanling when asked how do we
live a happy and healthy life? Incorporating simple qigong exercises into our
daily routine can have profound effects on our health, happiness and longevity.
Qigong isn't always that difficult to do, we need good information, a sincere
attitude and patience to receive the wonderful results that qigong practice can
reward us with. In this book, we will explore Qigong as it relates to our soul
and spirit: Qigong as it is taught and practiced in modern China; and we will
learn many useful Qigong exercises that we can use today to improve our health,
refine our spirit, and even increase our sexual pleasures.
"Yanling is one of our most sincere Qi cultivation
practitioner - scholars. Her books bring the reader into the vastness of China's
qigong domain of self-healing, empowerment and spirituality"
