About the book:

Want more energy? Then this is the book for you. Beautifully illustrated with stylish colour photographs it explains the origins of the idea of the wonderfully exotic sounding "Ch'I". Ch'i means energy or living essence and an understanding of it is the basis of virtually all Eastern healing and exercise practices. We in the West give little thought to energy unlike the Chinese who strongly believe that understanding and balancing the flow of Ch'i energy is essential for well-being. Author and Aikido expert, Paul Wildish explains that when we have abundant Ch'i energy flowing smoothly through our bodies, we are physically, emotionally and spiritually in balance; when this energy is blocked our physical and emotional health can suffer. Wildish explains chapter by chapter, how ch'i is the vital force behind healing practices such as Reiki, yoga, chi kung and acupuncture, which help to clear blocks and restore harmony in the body. Martial arts like tai ch'i and Aikido, the author's own speciality, also concentrate on the dynamic harnessing of this energy for self-protection. Wildish dedicates a further chapter to explaining how the increasingly popular practice of feng shui uses ch'i energy to improve the flow of positive ch'i within the environment. The first book to illustrate such a wide range of ch'I-based practices, the superb photography together with the excellent, accessible text make it a great gift. Whether your interest is in healing, self-development, martial arts or feng shui The Big Book of Ch'i will give you an in-depth understanding of what this vital energy is as well as teaching you how to access and use it for your own well-being.--Meg Slyfield
