What is included with this book?


This book examines one of the world's most enduring and influential literary works, the Dao De Jing, through the timeless art of qigong. In his words, Lao Tzu (or Laozi), author of the Dao De Jing, embodies qigong principles, advocating the cultivation of mind and body. Only when we know qigong can we know Lao Tzu —and only when we know Lao Tzu can we know the Dao De Jing.

Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, a renowned author, scholar, and martial artist, devoted decades to researching and writing this book. He interprets and analyzes the 81 chapters of the Dao De Jing. His commentary will bring new insight, inspiration, and depth to your understanding of Lao Tzu's words—and to your qigong practice.

Many chapters in the Dao De Jing purely talk about qigong,” Dr. Yang writes, “especially the practices of regulating the body, breathing, mind, qi, and spirit.”

Lao Tzu's writing has been read, translated, and discussed around the globe. It deals with principles that transcend time and culture. That is why this ancient text has been reimagined countless times in books on business, relationships, and parenting—but never with a focus on the art of qigong. This makes Dao De Jing: A Qigong Interpretation unique and indispensible.

This book includes

  • The complete Dao De Jing in English and its original Chinese text
  • Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming's commentary and analysis of each chapter
  • Numerous illustrations and diagrams

Dao De Jing: A Qigong Interpretation is not a book of instruction. It is about the Way—the path before us, in qigong and in life, where what you achieve comes through your own understanding.
