Zhan Zhuang : The Art of Nourishing Life (Paperback) (Yu Yongnian)
about this item
Zhan Zhuang, The Art of Nourishing Life is the exploration of an ancestral practice: Zhan Zhuang, the practice of ancient physical and meditative postures. Through this practice, a continual process of adjustment, learning, and purification takes place; it is a process by which the mind and body mutually integrate, triggering the unification of the self and its surroundings.
It is this form which in ancient China was named symbiosis—a process by which the mind and body merge together with the Tao—through which an infinite field of possibilities opens to us, both in the treatment and prevention of diseases, and at the level of development of latent potential within us.
In Zhan Zhuang, The Art of Nourishing Life, Dr. Yu Yongnian not only unveils the heritage of martial arts as well as purifying arts—previously available only in an unintelligible language—but also translates them into an accessible form that reveals the laws governing the body and mind.
