feeding the hungry ghosts seems relevant. But what about side-effects?
You get more merit & satisfy their hunger, and your prayers also go for their benefit to lessen their suffering.
I don't think you should be concerned with this. Very safe practice.

Here you'll find a lot of material, in PDF format
Why Qigong has Curative Effects?
Zhan Zhuang Standing Pole Exercise
Ancient Taoist Rehabilitation Methods
A Taoist Path to Immortality
The Paradoxical Logic Developed by the Chinese
Taoist Guidelines for a Peaceful Mind
Tao Te Ching The Classical Book
The Art of War by Sun Tzu
Wuyiquan And The Ancient Mexican Warrior Path (includes a lot of the Castaneda material)
Some of these books are of more interest than others, however the only downside is that there are no references or sources in these books...
The rest of the Martrix homepage is well worth browsing.. There are videoclips of traditional chinese morningexercises in the parks, baguazhang, taiji and qigong. There are interesting articles on Zhan Zhuang (pole standing exercises), and the art of YiQuan and its japanese counterpart Taikikken. Also some meditations that you can download.
well have a look for yerself!
