i have always been drawn to nei kung, and bone marrow nei kung in particular. i don't practice, but when i hear about it, my attention focuses and i think "thats what i need"

what are good introductory books/vids for learning about nei kung? do i need a solid foundation in qigong to practice effectively?

These have helped me. I would start with the bottom one first. I placed the other one on top because
that seemed to be where your interest is.

On another thread there is talk of starting a discussion about this one.

I cannot agree with the price for this book. Occasionally it can be found for around 20 usd.
There is a dvd of Tim Cartmell doing this nei gung set but without any verbal instruction.

There are many Qigongs or Nei Gongs to choose from. These just came to my mind.
Hope it helps.
Also there are many older topics on this subject here on The Tao Bums.

thanks! i just bought 2 books this morning so im going to hold off on those for now.

i am re-reading mantak chia's five elements fusion qigong. i have learned to take small steps in the proper order :) so i'm going to build from where i am instead of jumping in headfirst. i will search TTB for nei gong threads and read those to build familiarity while i read and practice master chia's qigong.

again, thanks!

What Encephalon is talking about here has nothing to do with M.Chia, YMAA or Xing Neigong.
It is C.K. Chu 's teaching: www.chutaichi.com.

Hi anamatva. :) Do you practice/have you practiced in a group setting? My intro to qigong/neigong was through regular, weekly classes with good instructors. I experienced many nuances to the proper form(s) that I studied. (And the many nuances between good teachers and mediocre teachers. ^_^) Learning/studying with a teacher and other "in person" students was immensely helpful to me.

P.S. I took a quick look for resources in your area. In case you are interested, take a look. If not, no worries. :)

sweet of you, i really appreciate that. i have never studied in a group setting (well 15 years ago i learned shaolin kungfu and taiji and there were other people there). but not qigong. i have studied with meditation masters of two traditions (daoist and mikkyo) and that makes 3 masters who i studied meditation under. so i know the benefit of having that feedback loop, i just haven't looked into it or found a master that i feel compelled to study under yet. also, i am really poor, but thats beside the point, i should still look into it.

thank you for your encouragement!

Encephalon,
I have the Eternal Spring Chi Kung book which C.K Chu states contains some Neikung as well as Chi Kung, I find it to be a good set, I also have his Nei Kung book but find it a bit too advanced for me, I might use the Eternal Spring as a stepping stone into Neikung..

Then my shoulder joints turned to balsa wood.

Six months following surgery, I am once again training with my beloved kettlebells and regular sets of push-ups. Sadly, benching and deadlifting are history. :(


Really great post! Thanks for sharing.

I'm curious, what do you think caused the problem with your shoulders? I have an issue with my right shoulder/back that I'm pretty sure was caused by overtraining and/or incorrectly training with free weights.

I also went through physical therapy with little result, then discovered Tai Chi and Chi Kung, which seem to have helped me much more. I also added yoga to my regimine recently. I tried yoga a few years ago but gave it up when I started getting into Tai Chi. At the time I thought it wasn't doing much for me, but I'm really enjoying it this time around. I've been seeing amazing results after only a few sessions. I think it has something to do with my Chi Kung practice. A stronger root perhaps. Anyway, here's to a healthy mind and body!

This is a useful and inspiring post.  And thanks for the resources.  I started reading the Yang Jwing Ming books.  I have also found Damo Mitchell's books Daoist Nei Gong and Heavenly Streams to be very useful.   And thanks to Bubbles I am ordering the Chutaichi videos.    It's also refreshing to learn more about Nei Gong without the mention of any Max stuff.

 

Damo MItchell covers the material in a very grounded and easy to understand way without all the cult paranoia in some groups.
