Dear All,

 

I am pleased to let you know that Singing Dragon is going to publish Serge Augier's first book in English!

 

Shen Gong and Nei Dan in Da Xuan

A Manual for Working with Mind, Emotion, and Internal Energy

 

Serge Augier. With translations by Isis Augier.

 

Weaving a masterful presentation of both astonishing depth and refreshing simplicity, Serge Augier covers the Daoist practices for developing mind, emotions and internal energy and provides specific exercises for cultivating and transforming the Jing (body energy), Qi (life force) and Shen (mind or spirit) on the path to enlightenment. He explains theory and practice in clear, easy-to-understand terms and explores the deeper reaches of Daoist internal alchemy in a way that gives access to practitioners of all levels to the necessary knowledge.

 

You can have a look at the table of content and pre-order the book here:

http://www.singingdr...e/9781848192607

 

As one of Serge's student I strongly recommend this book. Serge's teachings are very clear and offers a lot. It is by far the most precise information you can find in the West on Shen Gong and Nei Dan!

Hello,

 

Yes got it!

 

The book is actually a manual which gives precise information on meditation and breathing. It is very clear and you'll find loads of exercises throughout the different sections of the book.

 

It is actually quite a rare book as it clearly describes techniques from Clanic Taoism. Invaluable knowledge if you train!

Downloading the Kindle version now. Foreword by Yang Jwing-Ming, interersting.

Interesting little tidbit right at the start:

"In training of the mind (Sheb Gong) you are training something which doesn't exist. If you feel it, it has become materialized in the body - as emotion, for instance - and it is no longer the training of the mind."

Very succint, I like it :-)

Edit: SHEN Gong

This comment made me scroll up to see if I was in the Daoist or Buddhist forum. Neither... :)

haha, well, I take it to mean "deosn't exist physically" (hence, you shouldn't feel it physically).

Well then, that makes me ask: did you mean to say "shen gong?" I considered the "sheb" might have been Tibetan. Another reason I considered the practice to be Buddhist. :)
