The first complete theory and practice of Nei Gong specifically as it applies to women
Roni Edlund is a Senior Teacher within the Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts and is Head Instructor of the Lotus Moon Spiritual Arts School. She teaches Nei Gong in the UK, US and Sweden. Roni was the first woman to begin studying the internal arts in the classical feminine way within the Lotus Nei Gong School and she now aims to teach this specific feminine process to more women.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. He is the author of several books published by Singing Dragon, including Daoist Nei Gong: The Philosophical Art of Change.
I knew I had found a rare treasure for my instructors and students when I read Roni and Damo's Daoist Nei Gong for Women. Thorough, deep and wise, this is a voluminous "must-have" on any serious Qigong/ Neigong practitioner's shelf. It is sure to answer all questions women will have on these ancient health and empowerment practices, as up until now, so few knowledgeable books have been written about them. Women practitioners will now have a deep well to draw from, gleaning wisdom from two of the finest teachers of Neigong in the modern world. -- Daisy Lee, Founder, Radiant Lotus Women's Qigong
