The Inner Smile is a practice that focuses gratitude and joy on the internal organs to resolve the physical and mental tensions that can lead to illness. In Taoism negative motions - anger, sadness, depression, fear and worry - are seen as low-grade energy that causes chronic disease and steals our major life force by creating energy blockages. Master Mantak Chia shows that the internal awareness produced by the simple yet powerful Inner Smile meditation practice flushes the organs of poisonous negative energy that may be blocking chi energy flow in order to nourish the entire body. Just as a genuine outer smile transmits positive energy and has the power to warm and heal, an inner smile produces a high grade of energy that promotes powerful internal healing, deep relaxation, happiness and longevity. Smiling to the organs and thanking them for the work they do helps to reawaken the intelligence of the body, which, once activated, can dissipate emotional imbalances and inner disharmony before serious illness manifests. * Presents exercises that dissolve the physical and mental tensions that can cause energy blockages and unhealthy chi flow and shows how to recognize illness at its inception on the organ level and how to balance the emotions to heal it

" . . . a positive force that can be used to redirect the inner strife, or dis-ease, within one's body. . . . The Inner Smile is a slim book that covers a lot of ground and should be recognized as a laudable effort to take concepts which are vast and significant and make them accessible to all." * Barbara Bamberger Scott, Curled Up with a Good Book, Oct 2008 *

The inner smile is an excellent technique however this is covered in about 50% of Mantak Chia’s books. I’m not sure why there needs to be a whole book dedicated to it as it is a practice that is discover through just that – practice. For beginners who seek an easy understanding it is a good start. Also look at the iron shirt series.
