Great site, Dustwalker!

Thanks for putting it up there.
There are a few practices here that I like to do on a subweekly basis.

Long life and happiness,

Awareness dances within and without.

The only thing we can expect is NOW. Listen, express, enjoy, learn and serve for that moment.

These are more about TCM than qi gong but this is my list o' books...

Free audio downloads on TCM (and lots of other audio downloads on various Buddhist topics--I was the only person at Diamond Mountain who wasn't a Buddhist....)

http://www.dmes.org/...all/ChineseMed/

http://www.dmes.org/...ter/ChineseMed/

Dr. Elson's health tips: http://www.elsonhaas...ps_archive.html

Books:

The Way of Qi Gong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing by Ken Cohen

The Web That Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine by Ted Kaptchuk

Staying Healthy With the Seasons by Elson Has

Staying Healthy With Nutrition by Elson Haas

Healing With Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford (beware the herbal advice tho)

Plant Spirit Medicine by Eliot Cowan

Energy Medicine by Donna Eden (a bit fluffy but still good)

*Wood Becomes Water: Chinese Medicine in Everyday Life by Gail Reichstein (probably my favorite, pretty easy to understand)

No Boundary: Eastern and Western Approaches to Personal Growth by Ken Wilber

Resources I recommend, organised by person.

Sifu Yap Soon-Yeong of Penang, Malaysia

(See link in links section.)

Books:

Energy Medicine in CFQ Healing
Energy Meditation, Healing the Body, Freeing the Spirit
Tao of Healing: The Incredible Golden Light Energy

Better, tho, by far, to spend some time with him if you can. He travels quite a bit, notably to Europe and Canada

Barry Long died in December 2003. He has left an enormous resource of books and audio and video tapes. His message is uncompromising and often unwelcome, as befits a spiritual master. You may especially dislike his "Making Love" tapes. :) I don't want to list everything of his which I recommend here. Feel free to ask.

I assume most of you are already familiar with Ron Diana and Michael Winn and their material.

Hope this list is of use to you.

My teacher was trained by a guy called Hieu Doan who has some pretty cool stuff at his site: www.thepathofpower.com

I like the manifestation and realization techniques there.


Pretty cool stuff at www.E-Budo.com

See someone already mentioned www.emptyflower.com - but I second that!

www.russianmartialarts.com is pretty interesting

Enjoyed Dan Millman's new book "the Journey of Socrates" he seems to bring in quite a few Systema references there.

I ask one and all to take a look at my book- There are 64 Sonnets relating to the 64 hexagrams of the Yi Jing (I Ching) and 384 haikus relating to the changing lines. Also a short intro and traditional chart of the trigrams to build the 64 hexagrams with - are in there as well.
I hope that some of you enjoy them. The book was a joy to create, but any support shown would also be very much appreciated!.


The Wayfarer Sonnets- 2006

There is a PREview offered of several poems here-just click on the title link...

One of the greatest joys I have found in my searching is what I have gleaned from science and imperical observation. Here are some great sites to keep up on the current trands and discoveries. Learning the nature of our world and cosmos is one of the most Taoist of activities.
