A comprehensive explanation of the philosophy and process of Nei Gong, the Daoist path to transformation
Damo Mitchell has studied the martial, medical and spiritual arts of Asia since the age of four. He is the technical director of the Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts, and teaches Nei Gong in the UK, Sweden and the USA.
I urge anyone interested in the internal arts to read this book.
You won't get standard regurgitated descriptions of Qi or Qi gong.
Nor will you get exotic tales of secret rituals in dark caverns.
What you will get is a truly comprehensive sharing of profound
information in an accessible format. Damo has not only dedicated
his life to cultivating 'gong' but also to understanding the
processes involved (somatically and intellectually) so that others
can benefit. -- Dr Cindy Engel, Associate Lecturer, The Open
I really don't know of anyone else who has written about the nei gong process in the depth and detail in which Damo has. He clearly writes from a depth of experience in the nei gong tradition. He has a unique ability to explain nei gong in a clear and logical way that anyone can understand if prepared to make the effort. The diagrams in the books are especially helpful in making concepts clear. -- Kenneth Morgan * Medical Qigong Education Centre *
