Chinese Shamanic Cosmic Orbit Qigong

Esoteric Talismans, Mantras, and Mudras in Healing and Inner Cultivation

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon
Chinese Shamanic Cosmic Orbit Qigong is an advanced form of Qigong from one of China’s esoteric traditions. Never before written about in the West, this form offers great cumulative benefits from regular daily practice. Master Wu describes the practice in detail, including the meaning and significance of the Chinese names for each movement, with its shamanic roots, and provides the mantra, visualization, and mudra for each as well as explaining the therapeutic benefits and talismanic aspects. The book is fully illustrated, and there is a handy reference quick guide at the end showing the entire orbit.

This unique book will be essential reading for advanced students and practitioners of Qigong and anyone interested in Daoism, or the ancient wisdom traditions of China.

Master Zhongxian Wu is the lineage holder of four different schools of Qigong and martial arts. He synthesizes wisdom and experience for practitioners, as well as for patients, in his unique courses and workshops.
