and financial support" I was able to purchase all of the eX,pensiv'e documents which I found wOl'thwhile. Once I returned to, the 'United, S~ta'te9,I started to read and study them, and to experiment 'with S-OiDJe the methods, These: documents made me of t'e·aliz'e bow limited my knowledg'B was, and opened UPI a whol,e n.ew field of O,m Kung ,study (or me'.

readers. ,An unfortunate problem arose in that most. olft'he documents expla.in, WHAT ,to do, but do Dot exp],g,in WHY, and some wiD I'ven just ten tb@ pr~Oce·S.S witho'ut explaining ho'w to do it. D'es:piie the ebstaelas, I de,cided to "t,ry my be,stJ through research and, loontempla:tion, to determine the' seerats of 'the techniques. ,After two Y1ears, of research and ,experimentation" I feel that it wiD tak,e at least fiv,e ,rear,s and ,eigh.t volumes of' ,introductory books to initiate the: reader into the broad field of 'Chines'e ,Chi Kung, Althou,gb these ,eight volumes, will be baled on the deeuments available tOI me" 'they "Will not be direct translo;ti'DDs, of tbe:se deeumants, except for ,the ancient 'poetry or B,ongs which. are the root of the training, This approach is necessary :simply because: these ,d'ocume.nts,ldo not have any systematic intvoductlon ,or way of tyin,g everything together~ Whatl can ,dais read 'tb'em aDd study them- carefully.- The'n I can compile and

Chi Kung knowledge, and experien,ee. This approach will allowme to cautiously bring long-eoneealed Chi Kung knowledge to the reader," T'he only thing Iaeking is the experience. M,any of the 'methods require more than twe,n:ty yean; of training to complete" and I would have to spend more than three Iifetimes studying the various, methods before I could discuss them with authority.. I realize that it is impo'Ssible for me alone to introduce

organize the.information,

and discuss it carefully in 'the light of my own

the re,sults of fOur thousand yea'r,B of Chi Kung research with these eight books, but I would, still lik,e to share the knowledge 'which I have gained from these d,oeuments, ,an,dtbe, conelUBions which. I have drawn [rom my training'. Please take tbe'se 'books in, the tentative spirit in which th.ey are written " and not as a final authority or bible, I sin'cerely hope that many 'o,ther Chi Kung experts win ste.p forward and share the traditional teachings which were passed down to them" as well, as the fruits of their experience, At present, the following books are plan_ned: L THE ROOT O¥ CHINESE' CHI KUNG -..

In this Brait volume we will discu.ss the root's of Chinese Chi Kung by dividing it into four parts. The first part will introduce the history of ,Chi Kung" the basic eencepts and terminology commonly used in Chi Kung 8!ociety and documents" the different Chi Kung categories, and will dis;cuss Chi and the: human body! and fundament-al Chi Kung' training·tb,eory and 'prin.ciples. This, firs,t, part will give you a general concept 0'£ what Chi KUng is" and, tbevarious, subJects tha,t .it includes. The seeond p,art will discuss, the general keys te C.hi Kung training, and give you 'the found,ation ofknowledge whicb is necessary for 8ucces,sfW practice. This part s,erves as ,8 map of tbe 'What and the
How of' Chi 'Kung training,. so that you can choose your goal and the best way to, get there. The third, part will revie,w the Chi circulatory 9¥stem in your body" which includes the twelve primary Chi channels and the eight extr,8ordinary Chi vessels. TroiS part will give you a better und'erstanding of' how Chi cin:u1ates in your body. Fin,aUy, the fourth part of the book will list some of the many questicns ,about e'bi Kung which still remain unanswer-ed. The second volume 'm this, series will cover Vi Gin and 8hii Soei Chi Kung, which are translated as, IllMusclelThndon Changing and M,arfOW Wa:sbin~g Chi Kun,g,,," Marrow Was,bing is, deep, a,nd difficult to understand, It has been found in documents detailing both Buddhist and Taoist Chi Kung land meditation training~ and it bas been known in China since the Liang dynas,ty, more than fourteen hundred years ago. Because, however, the training usually involv,os,stimulation ,of tbe sexu:al organs" it, has traditio,naUy been passed dOIWft only to a few

trusted students.

Chapter 4
Chi and the Human Body
In order to UDlderstand 'human Chi KUDg~you, must 'understand 'the nature of the Chi in the 'human body~ and bo'w' it functions, Tbi,B includes understanding what kinds, of Chi are in the body~ what functions the'y perform, and how they carry outthese functions" In. the fil,st three chapters we have offered a general definition of' Chi, discussed bow human Chi is included in and ,afiected by H,e,Bven Chi and Earth Chi, and [shown, how Chi relates 'to other ,a~spec·ts,of D'ur 'bodies",such as ,sprirlt and Bssenee. In Part IThree of'thi,1 book 'we'will

review how Chi c,irculates, in the human 'bod,,:,, In this chapter we will first focus on the! g,ener',al'chu'acteristmes of Chi in our bcdies. 'I'his will provide a feundation to help you understand the rest of' ,the cb.apte.r. We will then eeneentrate on a
'number of' ,su~jects whic:h will lead you to a deeper understanding of human Chi, s,uch as Chfs Yin and Yang', and the! quality of Cbi. Once you understand the 'tra,diUoDal eoneept of Chi, we! will diseuss the 'modem concept of bioelectromagn.eti,c 'energy.

l

of Chi is determined.

Naturally;, this, impli,ea, that fhe 'p"ot@n'tial which generates the Chi ia strong 01" weak~For example" the Chi from the ,SUD is, Yang Chi and Chi from the moon is Yin Chi. This is, beeause ,tb,e sun's energy is Yan,g in eompariscn to Human Chi, wbile tOI 'mloon"s is Yin. In ,any discussion 'of energy wherepeople are: involved, Human Chi is used as the standard. People are alway.s es'pecilaUy interested in what concerns 'them directly, so it is, :na't.ulI"sl that we are interes,ted primarily in Human Chi and tend to view' aU Chi from the perspeetive of human Chi. This Is ,not unlike looking at the U.mV'81"Se from the perspective of the Earth. Wb.en w,e look a,t the: 'Yin and Yang of Chi within and in regard 'to the human body, however, w,emust redefine our point IOf reference. F,or example:, when ,8 person is dead, his residual 'Human Chi (Goa Cbi or ghost Chi) its weak compared to, alivi:ng person's. Therefo,re., the gbOSt',S Chi i,s Yin while the living person's is Yang.

Wewilll discuss tbis :subject inmore detail in, the Part.:3 'of "this, book. When the Cbi in, any of your' organs is not in, its normal state, you. ,feel uneomfortable. If it. is velY much off' from the normal. state the ,o'.rg,an win start to malfunction, and Y'DU, .may become sick. Wben 'this ha'PPs'D,S, the Chi in your entiroe body 'will alse be affected and. you win feel 'too Yang, perhaps, feverish, or too Yin,. sueb asthe weakness after diarrhea. Your hody"s IChi level is also, affected by natural eireumstanees such as the weather, climate, and seasonal changes, Therefore, when the hody·s Chi level Is classified, the reference pDint is the Iavel which. feels most comfortable lor those particular circumstances .. Na,tul",aIly, each of us is a lil'ttle bit di.fferent~ and 'what Ceels best and most natural :(tor one person may be B bit different from what is 'ri,ght fOF' another person. That is why the dcetor will usually ask "how d!D ,you reerr It is aeeerding to ,y'ourown standard that JlOU - ,ale jilll,QBd,,, Bra',ath is ch:u:Jely I"\ela'ted to the state of your 'Chi, aD,d -therefo,re' also ,considered Yin ,or Yang'. When you exhale you ,expel air [rom your Lungs, your mind mOV"BS outward, and the Chi. around the, body expands. In the Ch:inell8 :marti,al,BrtB, the exhale' is generally used "to

expand t.he C'bi to energize the muscles during an attack, Therefore, you can 5,ee that the exhale is Ya'ng-~it is expanding, oft"e,nsive~ and s,t:rong" Na,iurally,baB,ed, on the' same tbeory, the inhale is cons,i,d'e~ed Your breathing is eloselyrelated to YOW' emetions, When you lose yoor temper, your breathing' is shnrt and fast, Le, Yang", Wben you are sad, :your' body is more Yin, and you inhale mere than you emaI,! ,m order to abserb the Chi .f'rom the air to balance the, bDd-y~s Yin to bring the bodybac'k into balance. When you are exclt,ed and happ'y, your' body is Yang'., Your exhale i:r; longer t,han your inhale in order to :g,etrid ef the excess Yan,g w'hicb, is caused by the excitement. , As mentione,d before" yout' nrindis also closely r-elated to your Chi. The~efore', when your Chi is, Yang, your mind i:s usually also Yang (exc,i.ted) and vi!ce versa. In ,addition, as we discussed in the previaus :section,.the mind can also be elassiftsd ,accorwng to the Chi which generates jt~ The mind (Yi) which is ,gene,rate,d from the calm and peaceful Chi obtained from Original Esu'J·e,nee:s eonsidered Yin" The i mind (Hsin) w'hich originat,es with the food and air E,ssence' is emotional, scattered, and excited,. and ,it is CODJlddu:rea: Yang. Finally, the Shen" whicb is relatedte the Chi" can also be clas'sified as, Yang or 'Yin based Ion its origin. Do 'Do,t co,nfuse Vm Chi and Yang Cbi with Fire Chi and Water C,b!. When the Yin andYan,g or Chi are mentioned, it refers to ,tbe Ie'vel of Chi a.ceordin,g to some reference point. 'However" wheiD Water and Fire Chi are mentioned" :it re;f

However, they are WTOD;g'. When Chl is neither too Yin .nOlr too Yang:, this, means th,at the ,level of the Chi is right. It is a qnantita:tive :s;tatemen,tratber than a qualitative one. The, quality gf' Chi 'refers to its, purity, ,BB, w',ellas its eontents. This, quality ,depends on where and how the Chi originated,. Usually. the ql1ality of the Cbi determines how t,t behaves and. how it affects the body's,Yin ,and Yang' wbenit .is eirculating in your body~. Within, the' human body, Chi Kung prAc.titio,ner:s have generally c.at'~goriz'ed Chi into '~Flire Chi'" and! "'Wate'l Chf' toexpre:,ss, the: qualitative! purity 'of the Chi. The: terms ·!,Fire:" and. "'~Water"indicate the effects that, the C.hi has on our' body. For example, when Chi ,that is, Impure or of POD,t" quality circulates in the human body, it may cause beat in the body and organs, and, make the body ton Yang., It is therefore called "FIre ICbi.'J!' If, b.ow,ever"tbe Chi is pure, clean, land ci~ctllati~g' smoothly, it will enable the body to remain calm, keep tha mind elear and ,steady, and allow the body to function properly_ This Chi is called "'Water Chi" because it is the Chi 'whi,ch enables the body to remain calm and cool, JikeW'llter. In. the, thousands of y,ears that Chi ,Kung has been studied, 'piractitioners have' found that the Chi w.hi,ch comes from. "Original Ji,eng" (and is theJlefoJr1e caned Original Chi) is, ~'W:llter Chi," It 'iispure and smo'Dtb, like sunsbrne in the winter, like cry'stal-puf',e water flowing smoothly in a stream, 'vlery c()mfortabb9 ,B'nd natur,at This, Chi maklu;, it p06sibl,e ftn" the wisdom -miu,d (Vi) to remam calm and ,grow s.tr(Jn!ger~ When thisl Chi is circulating' in the 'human bod,Y, i't, is, smooth and will &eep the phys,ieal body functioning' in a steady" calm" and 'Yin state.

However, they are WTOD;g'. When Chl is neither too Yin .nOlr too Yang:, this, means th,at the ,level of the Chi is right. It is a qnantita:tive :s;tatemen,tratber than a qualitative one. The, quality gf' Chi 'refers to its, purity, ,BB, w',ellas its eontents. This, quality ,depends on where and how the Chi originated,. Usually. the ql1ality of the Cbi determines how t,t behaves and. how it affects the body's,Yin ,and Yang' wbenit .is eirculating in your body~. Within, the' human body, Chi Kung prAc.titio,ner:s have generally c.at'~goriz'ed Chi into '~Flire Chi'" and! "'Wate'l Chf' toexpre:,ss, the: qualitative! purity 'of the Chi. The: terms ·!,Fire:" and. "'~Water"indicate the effects that, the C.hi has on our' body. For example, when Chi ,that is, Impure or of POD,t" quality circulates in the human body, it may cause beat in the body and organs, and, make the body ton Yang., It is therefore called "FIre ICbi.'J!' If, b.ow,ever"tbe Chi is pure, clean, land ci~ctllati~g' smoothly, it will enable the body to remain calm, keep tha mind elear and ,steady, and allow the body to function properly_ This Chi is called "'Water Chi" because it is the Chi 'whi,ch enables the body to remain calm and cool, JikeW'llter. In. the, thousands of y,ears that Chi ,Kung has been studied, 'piractitioners have' found that the Chi w.hi,ch comes from. "Original Ji,eng" (and is theJlefoJr1e caned Original Chi) is, ~'W:llter Chi," It 'iispure and smo'Dtb, like sunsbrne in the winter, like cry'stal-puf',e water flowing smoothly in a stream, 'vlery c()mfortabb9 ,B'nd natur,at This, Chi maklu;, it p06sibl,e ftn" the wisdom -miu,d (Vi) to remam calm and ,grow s.tr(Jn!ger~ When thisl Chi is circulating' in the 'human bod,Y, i't, is, smooth and will &eep the phys,ieal body functioning' in a steady" calm" and 'Yin state.
