Qigong heißt wörtlich: „mit der Lebensenergie arbeiten“. Alle Übungen der bekannten chinesischen Bewegungspraxis haben die Stärkung der Lebenskraft zum Ziel. Sie dienen somit der generellen Gesunderhaltung und Kräftigung, der Vorbeugung und Behandlung von Krankheiten und nicht zuletzt der psychischen Stabilisierung und spirituellen Entwicklung. Der Qigong-Meister Kenneth Cohen erklärt in diesem international als Grundlagenwerk anerkannten Klassiker nicht nur die Übungspraxis und die philosophischen Grundlagen, sondern er widmet sich auch eingehend dem Verständnis der Heilfunktionen. Dabei berücksichtigt er vor allem auch den westlichen Zugang aus naturwissenschaftlicher, bioenergetischer und medizinischer Sicht. Aus den detaillierten Anleitungen zu den Zyklen „Die acht Brokate“ oder „Das Spiel der fünf Tiere“ sowie mit Hilfe der wirksamen Atem- und Entspannungsübungen kann sich jeder ein individuelles Übungsprogramm zusammenstellen und Qigong erfolgreich in den Alltag integrieren

Travel statistics say that baby boomers travel more than any other age group in America—and that an ever increasing number of them are looking for ways to spend their leisure time in substantial, meaningful ways. One especially fast-growing area of interest is the "experience-driven" or "wellness" vacation, a proactive approach based on the idea that true recreation involves positive engagement: acquiring a new skill or volunteering to share your own expertise; exercising your intellect or extending yourself in some creative, physical, or spiritual way. In response to such aspirations, this timely book showcases a broad range of the most life-enriching getaways in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, with something for every taste and every interest. Here are programs dedicated to kayaking lessons, mountain biking, yoga instruction, and more. Perhaps you'd prefer to spend an arts and crafts holiday focused on a creative activity like cooking, painting, or woodworking. Imagine studying French in a Maine village, learning about nutrition at a historic North Carolina spa, or helping rebuild the devastated communities of the Gulf Coast. Weave a Navajo rug; make a film in New York; learn to surf in Mexico; or choose any of scores of other possibilities. Elegantly designed and packed with attractive and fun descriptions, detailed travel information, lists of unique activities, and special sidebars, this unusual resource tells you all you need to know to ensure that your next vacation won't just be time off—it will be time well spent.

Mit der Praxis des Wuji Yuan Gong zu beginnen ist der erste Schritt einer Reise zu unserem Ursprung. Unser Ursprung, unsere wahre Heimat, ist der Zustand, in dem man das Gefühl des vollkommenen Wohlseins erlebt. Dorthin zurückzukehren bedeutet, das wahre Selbst wieder zu entdecken - Einsicht zu erlangen in eine Ganzheit, die niemals verloren, sondern nur vergessen war. Immer zu Hause zu sein, ganz gleich wo man sich befindet - immer Ganzheit zu erfahren, ganz gleich wie die Lebensumstände auch sein mögen -, dies zu erreichen bedeutet, mit allem zu verschmelzen und zu wissen, dass es nur das Eine gibt. Sheng Zhen wird seit 1998 auch in Deutschland gelehrt. Seitdem fühlen sich immer mehr Menschen zu diesem besonderen Qi Gong hingezogen, in dessen Mittelpunkt die Kultivierung der bedingungslosen Liebe steht. Sheng Zhen Wuji Yuan Gong ist die grundlegendste Form des Qi Gong. Sie umfasst drei Aspekte: 1. verbessert die Gesundheit des Körpers 2. löst negative Emotionen und Gedanken auf 3. öffnet das Herz

Als Kind entkommt die Menschrechtsaktivistin Clemantine Wamariya dem Völkermord in Ruanda. Sie erhält Asyl in den USA, hält heute Vorträge und setzt sich für Benachteiligte und Aufbauhilfe in Afrika ein. Eine inspirierende Lebensgeschichte, außergewöhnlich berührend erzählt. Menschenrechtsaktivistin und Yale-Absolventin Clemantine Wamariya setzt sich weltweit für Benachteiligte ein, hält Vorträge und TEDTalks und wurde von Barack Obama ans U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum berufen. Auf den ersten Blick ist ihr Leben eine Erfolgsgeschichte, doch in Wahrheit kämpft sie jeden Tag darum, ihre zerbrochene Welt wieder zu kitten. Als Sechsjährige musste sie an der Seite ihrer Schwester vor dem Völkermord in Ruanda fliehen. Sechs Jahre dauerte ihre Odyssee und führt sie durch insgesamt sieben afrikanische Länder. Im Flüchtlingscamp in Malawi, im Slum in Sambia, im Trubel des südafrikanischen Durbans überleben die Mädchen mit Ideenreichtum und der festen Absicht, ihr Schicksal nicht einfach hinzunehmen. Mit dreizehn erhält Clemantine die Chance auf ein zweites Leben: In den USA bietet man ihr Asyl, Schulbildung und jeglichen Überfluss der westlichen Welt. Sie nutzt diese Chance auf einen Neubeginn und beginnt, ihre Lebensgeschichte neu zu schreiben, Tag für Tag ein kleines bisschen. Mit beeindruckender sprachlicher Kraft erzählt sie, wie es ihr gelang, dem Genozid zu entkommen und sich auf ihre größte Stärke zu besinnen: die Macht ihrer Vorstellungskraft und der Geschichten, durch die sie überlebte.

The Consultation in Phytotherapy considers the means by which the herbal practitioner can seek to appreciate the patient's predicament. Written for both herbal medicine students and practitioners, the book takes a radical approach, challenging readers to reflect on the nature, scope and methods of the consultation in herbal practice. The author asserts that the effective consultation represents a therapeutic act in and of itself, and proposes strategies for maximising and realising this therapeutic potential. The book provides both a complement to, and a critique of, mainstream texts on clinical diagnosis and case management. It contrasts the herbal consultation with that occurring in conventional medicine and offers rationales, arguments and tools aimed at developing an enhanced capacity to achieve profound results in the herbal clinical encounter. About the Author Peter Conway is a practising medical herbalist and has been involved in developing and teaching on several BSc and MSc courses in herbal medicine. He is the President of the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy and a Director of the European Herbal and Traditional medicine Practitioners Association. Peter helped draft the National Professional Standards for Herbal Medicine and sat on the Department of Health Steering Group on the Statutory Regulation of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. Key features Provides a context for understanding and appreciating what is meant by "phytotherapy" Explores the notion of the therapeutic relationship in herbal practice and how this can practically be facilitated Considers all aspects pertaining to the aims and structure of the herbal consultation, including history taking, physical examination, investigation, concluding the consultation and providing ongoing care Examines and integrates a broad range of perspectives including those connected with: placebo and the meaning response; complexity and chaos theories; psychoneuroimmunology; evidence- and narrative-based medicine; and phenomenological and traditional medicine approaches.

These quick-and-easy Chi manipulation, acupressure, and "emitted Chi" practices can be done while watching TV, reading a book, or sitting at your computer! --- The term Qigong (also spelled "chi kung" and pronounced "chee gung") literally means "energy practice." It refers to a family of practices for health, fitness, energy development, and stress relief. Originally from China, but now practiced the world over, more than 80 million people practice Qigong daily to keep themselves fit, healthy, stress-free, and full of energy. Most Qigong practices take time to learn and practice before you can really see and feel all of these amazing benefits. But what if you could learn a few simple Qigong techniques in just a few minutes that will give you a quick health, stress relief, and energy boost? What if I told you that you can practice these techniques while you are watching TV, reading a book, or even sitting at your computer? If you have even just one minute during the day when your hands are free, then you can learn a few simple techniques to give yourself a quick Chi boost to help you look and feel your best! --- In this book, you'll discover: * Why Qigong ("chi life energy" practice) is called "the world's most popular exercise" (page 2) * The "catch" that makes Qigong difficult to learn, and what you can do about it (page 2) * How to make Qigong fit our busy schedules, when we don't even have time for exercise (page 3) * The type of Qigong that can be learned in just a few minutes - and practiced even more quickly (page 4) * Qigong styles that can be done anytime, anywhere - standing, sitting, or lying down (page 5) * The chi exercises that help Qigong and Tai Chi students get more chi flow from their practice, but are completely "beginner friendly" (page 6) * Why these exercises are a great place to start your exploration of Qigong (page 7) * The benefits of Qigong, reported by doctors, hospitals, research students, and students around the world (page 9) * Confused about "chi" - here's a non-mystical, no-nonsense approach to life energy (page 11) * What is the difference between "active" and "passive" qigong, and how "chi manipulation" splits the difference (page 12) * Two ways you can manipulate chi using your hands (page 15) * The easiest method of chi manipulation (page 16) * How to stimulate your chi system's "access points" (page 17) * How to use your hands to affect the "chi field" that surrounds you (page 19) * Your chi field protects you against pathogens, daily stress, and negative emotions from others (page 20) * Where your body's main "energy reservoir" is located (page 21) * Seven special access points to energy pathways that are located in just one body part (page 25) * While reflexology uses the feet, Qigong uses a different part of the body as "microcosm" (page 33) * Four simple chi massages you can use to benefit all the organs of the body (page 35) * Working with internal organs - four simple Qigong "torso massages" (page 39) * Acupressure and massage to keep your feet healthy, toned, and relaxed (page 45) * Using your hands to emit chi and manipulate your chi field (page 51) * A simple exercise to feel chi emissions from your palms (page 53) * The scientifically measurable component of chi emission (page 56) * The technique for sensing and strengthening your natural "energy shield" (page 659) * Giving yourself a "chi wash" and how to make it work more quickly (page 61)

T. S. Elliot wrote: “At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh not fleshless; Neither from not towards; at the still point , there the dance is, Except for the point, the still point. There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.” This book talks about the still point in an entirely new way by framing it as our internal home. It also provides a path to “coming home” based on extensive research and personal experience. If you are interested in the dance of spiritual transformation, this is a must read. –Barry Cohen, Ph.D. Dr. Bellingham enlightens the reader by sharing his personal life experiences in an extraordinarily meaningful context. He bridges the divide between eastern and western thought to form one fully human message. He has the rare ability to satisfy and integrate our intellectual curiosity with our search for spiritual fulfillment. –Bill O’Brien, Ph.D. Having known the author for over 40 years, and witnessing many aspects of his spiritual journey, I highly recommend this book for anyone who continues to strive to find his inner self, or to be HOME. My own quest for SERENITY has been enriched by reading this book, and by witnessing Dr. Bellingham’s life-long desire to find inner peace. We can indeed “transform our lives from a mindless drill to a mindful dance” with enough work, desire and by digesting the thoughts expressed in this wonderful accounting of the author’s life and experiences. –Ronald Irwin M.D. This is coming-to-wisdom story with hope for us all. This tale is all personal, with regular bits of carefully crafted ways to grasp the most elusive thoughts of the world’s greatest teachers and soul guides. Read it. Smile at the disarming honesty. And be heartened. For he’s showing how wisdom can flourish more widely than ever in America. -Artie Egendorf, Ph. D. Author of “Healing from the War” and originator of Super Integral Synergy (http://sismoves.com) By openly and honestly illuminating his experience and journey over 40 years, Dr. Bellingham shines a bright light on our own unique paths. He knows the territory with all its hills and valleys. With this book we, who are researchers, can be assured we are home already. To me, being fully present with a deep sense of love for all things is the key message. We are not separate. –Mary Alice Fox
