Bone Marrow Nei Kung

Taoist Techniques for Rejuvenating the Blood and Bone

Bone Marrow Nei Kung

A guide to nourishing the body through bone marrow rejuvenation exercises • Presents exercises to “regrow” bone marrow, revive the internal organs, and prevent osteoporosis • Explains the use of bone breathing and bone compression, “hitting” to detoxify the body, and sexual energy massage and chi weight lifting to enhance the life force within Most Westerners believe that a daily physical exercise program helps slow the aging process. Yet those whose bodies appear most physically fit on the outside often enjoy only the same life span as the average nonathletic person. It is the internal organs and glands that nourish every function of the body, and it is the bone marrow that nourishes and rejuvenates the organs and glands through the production of blood. By focusing only on the muscles without cultivating the internal organs, bones, and blood, the Western fitness regimen can ultimately exhaust the internal system. In Bone Marrow Nei Kung Master Mantak Chia reveals the ancient mental and physical Taoist techniques used to “regrow” bone marrow, strengthen the bones, and rejuvenate the organs and glands. An advanced practice of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, Bone Marrow Nei Kung was developed as a way to attain the “steel body” coveted in the fields of Chinese medicine and martial arts. This method of absorbing energy into the bones revives the bone marrow and reverses the effects of aging through the techniques of bone breathing, bone compression, and sexual energy massage, which stimulates the hormonal production that helps prevent osteoporosis. Also included is extensive information on chi weight lifting and the practice of “hitting” to detoxify the body.

Ba Gua Nei Gong Vol. 6

Marrow Washing Nei Gong

Ba Gua Nei Gong Vol. 6

Embedded within the martial art Ba Gua Zhang is a complete system of internal exercises that promote self-healing and longevity and transform consciousness. Ba Gua Nei Gong consists of nine powerful and profound methods of internal exercise and self-cultivation. This book is the sixth in a series of manuals on Ba Gua Nei Gong. It can be used in conjunction with instruction in Ba Gua Zhang, or employed as a stand-alone instruction manual. This volume covers both Bone Breathing (Xi Hu Gu) and Marrow Washing Nei Gong (Xi Sui Jing), two exercises that work at the deepest levels of the body. Bone Breathing is a excellent relaxation exercise and also serves as a preliminary exercise that can help you to correctly practice Marrow Washing Nei Gong. Bone Breathing teaches you to "breathe" into the bones and the marrow, so that Qi and blood can circulate and enter these structures. This aids the conversion of Qi into kidney Jing and blood. Ba Gua Marrow Washing Nei Gong continues the process begun in Bone Breathing by leading Qi and breath to the interstices of the joints and the bone marrow, to the spaces between the bones and the flesh, to the spaces between the flesh and the skin, and even into the hair follicles and pores. This practice strengthens the bones and stimulates the bone marrow, thereby increasing the production of blood, while nourishing the tissues and improving circulation to every part of the body. In traditional Chinese medicine, marrow is produced in the bones, but it also fills and nourishes the brain and spinal cord. Practice of Marrow Washing Nei Gong is therefore said to aid the nervous system, strengthen the brain and improve one's mental capacity. This rejuvenates and improves the overall functioning of the body. The refined strength and sensitivity developed by Marrow Washing Nei Gong aids the martial arts practitioner on many levels - particularly in development of higher level skills such as power sensing, the simultaneous storage and relea

Tan Tien Chi Kung

Foundational Exercises for Empty Force and Perineum Power

Tan Tien Chi Kung

A fundamental Taoist practice for enhancing and utilizing chi • Includes breathing and movement exercises to promote vitality and healing through the cultivation of chi in the tan tien and perineum areas • Presents the foundational exercises that are essential for more advanced practices such as Iron Shirt Chi Kung and Cosmic Healing Tan Tien Chi Kung is the art of cultivating and condensing chi in the lower abdomen--the tan tien--the fundamental power storehouse of the body. Known as the Ocean of Chi to the ancient Taoists, this lower abdominal area holds the key to opening the body and the mind for the free and continuous movement of chi. Tan Tien Chi Kung contains specific breathing and movement exercises that develop the power of the chi stored in the body to increase vitality, strengthen organs, and promote self-healing. Mantak Chia explains how these exercises also provide a safe and effective method for receiving earth energy, which allows the practitioner to achieve balance physically, mentally, and spiritually--all of which are essential for the more advanced practices of Iron Shirt Chi Kung and Cosmic Healing. It is our mind that directs and guides our chi, but if the mind and body are out of balance or under stress, the mind cannot perform this function. The tan tien actually contains a large quantity of neurotransmitters, making it a key source of body intelligence. It is for this reason the Taoists also referred to Tan Tien Chi Kung as Second Brain Chi Kung and created exercises that would allow practitioners to gain awareness of the tan tien’s function to restore the mind-body balance that is essential for spiritual growth and optimal well-being.
