A very well written book about Chi Kung (QiGong). Wong Kiew Kit is a master trained in China and puts forward very clear instructions on how to approach and practice the art. Mast Wong Kiew Kit puts emphasis on the spiritual awareness of Chi Kung and not just the physical movements. I found the book and the exercises very powerful. Although I have read the book I still reference it for clarity on practices and exercises.

This book offers the dedicated Chi Kung student an elevator to success if they will persist. It's not difficult but is time consuming in the beginning but
as you start to experience the wonderful benefits from daily practice and cultivation of what things mean as your body begins to react positively, you
are hooked. I know because I feel so much better and enjoy each day more than I ever had in the past. Read, read, read and do what Master Kit Wong explains to do and you will be a believer after a short time and real believer after 3 months. I only wish I could participate in one of his seminars in the US. Have Fun

I had purchased this book based on an Amazon.com user's recommendation. I'm quite glad I did.

Most books on chi (by whatever name) tend to make one of two errors. One error, found most commonly in new-age or modern "magick" books, is a failure to distinguish between imagination and real chi flow. The reader is told to imagine golden or white light entering one's body and filling it with divine goodness, or to imagine the chakras glowing or moving in some way. Some even claim that imagination is how we see with the ajna chakra ("third eye"). If you've ever had real experiences with chi or chakras, you'll know that this is nonsense.

The second error, found most commonly in martial arts and yoga practices, is the assumption that particular physical motions alone will generate chi flow and strengthen one's health. While physical motions can help, from the perspective of chi flow the whole reason it works is that one's mind is engaged in the process of telling one's body to move along those pathways. The biochemical processes that result in building muscle tissue, strengthening bones, and reinforcing the heart work only because there is a strong flow of communication going on between the areas that are worked and the central nervous system. If that communication flow is strong enough, you won't get sore after exercising. Soreness, like inflamation, is actually an indication of retardation in the healing process due to weak communication pathways in the body. (Anyone who is interested in learning more about the science behind this should read The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life along with the theory behind chiropractic care, readily found via Google.)

Sifu Wong manages to avoid both of these errors quite well. Right from the beginning, he emphasizes the importance of the mind in chi kung training. He describes, rather well in my opinion, how to use one's mind during each of the exercises. He sometimes refers to imagining chi moving in various ways, but he places more importance on the gentleness of the thought which, in my opinion, is a reasonably good way of avoiding the error of imagination replacing real experience. He also explains the long-term effects of these exercises in a way that I can tell comes from a seasoned master teacher.

He also lays out an excellent overview of chi kung styles. He explains the differences between various practices that call themselves "chi kung" (or "qigong"), which really helped me to organize my thinking about this multifaceted family of disciplines. That may or may not matter to someone who is just trying to get health benefits from chi exercises, but for cerebral types like me it's really a wonderful resource.

I have just one complaint about this book. Although the pictures convey the gist of the movements, they aren't really detailed enough. I had to search for some videos of Sifu Wong's style on YouTube in order to figure out the rhythm of his movements and how quickly they should be done. I had to play with some of the movements quite a bit in order to figure out how they were supposed to work, and I don't think I could have done that if I hadn't already developed sensitivity to the feeling of chi flow. More pictures, or perhaps an accompanying CD-ROM or short DVD with demonstrations, would have helped immensely.

However, I still consider this to be one of the best books on chi I have read. Anyone interested in getting a reasonably good overview of chi kung and having an excellent regime for enhancing health should start with this book, in my opinion. Even with the pictures being a bit difficult to follow at times, what a novice can get out of it is definitely worth it.

Just be sure to follow his advice!

This book has adequate illustrations, and fairly easy to understand.
This book covers both the Physical (Wai Dan) and mental (Nei Dan) aspects of Chi Kung and includes adequate information on the primary meridians.
I do wish the author had included more information on vital points.
Vital points are special areas occuring on the meridians that can be stimulated via massage or accupuncture.
Perhaps the author will write another book for people that are more advanced in Chi Kung sometimes spelled Chi Gung or Qigong (pronounced chee gong)
I only have two negative comments about this book.
1. a bit of the text is disconcerting because English is not the author's first language.
2. The author doesn't teach either the small or large Uiverse, and IMHO I believe this is a minimum.
The small universe is where the practitioner directs chi through the conception, and governing meridians.
The big universe is where the chi kung practitioner directs chi through t! he 12 primary meridians.
I have not read all Chi Kung related books, but of the ones I have read, I would recommend the following in this order.
Chi Gung (L.V. Carnie), Chi Kung for health and vitality (Wong Kiew Kit), and The Chi Kung Way (James MacRitchie)
Unfortunately; there are some Chi Kung related books that I do NOT recommend because they contain inadequate information, or are dangerous .
Feel free to contact me via E-Mail if you have questions or comments about my review.

Master Wong Kiew Kit is a very good author and really knows what he is talking about. I have three of his publications and they are all excellent. He doesn't cloud his books with "junk" relating to the subject matter. A very good purchase. If you enjoy his writing style and happen to be a Buddhist, his publication "Sukhavati Western Paradise Going to Heaven as Taught by the Buddha" is one of my favorite books.

This book makes chi kung or qigong highly approachable. Some very simple exercises that anyone can learn are presented clearly and enjoyably by this positive master. His writing is very clear and his methods as I said while not complex are quite useful for quickly building chi.

Chi Kung (also known as Qi Gong) is an art of stretching for energy and health. More basic than other disciplines, it is also easier to get started and can be done just about anywhere at any time. You can also start again after a layoff without too much pain or agony like other regimine. A worthwhile read.
Helpful book to find how to plan our own Qigong program, one which is adapted to our individual needs without sacrificing the spirit and understanding of this life-changing technique.
