9780963180810: The Great Stillness, the Water Method of Taoist Meditation

This second volume of The Water Method of Taoist Meditation Series focuses on the Water Method's central technique: the inner dissolving process-showing how to overcome your inner psychological demons and distractions, how the mindstream functions and how internal alchemy differs in Taoism's Fire and Water traditions. You will gain a new understanding of the spiritual importance of cultivating the physical body and its internal energies. This book expands on Volume 1's powerful standing and breathing techniques to include moving, sitting and lying down meditation methods, with detailed illustrations. You will also learn sexual chi gung and meditation techniques, never published before, to increase the intimacy, harmony and satisfaction of your relationships and deepen your spiritual awareness.

From the Publisher:

Bruce Kumar Frantzis has studied meditation, internal martial arts and chi gung for four decades, including five years in Japan and India and more than ten years in China. After two decades of intensive study in the Zen, Yoga, Kundalini and Taoist Fire traditions, B. K. Frantzis met Liu Hung Chieh, one of this century's greatest Taoist masters, in Mainland China. Although Liu had stopped teaching several years prior, he had just had two dreams about this American arriving at his doorstep to study with him. This led to Liu's decision to pass on the knowledge of his lineage to the author. B. K. Frantzis teaches chi gung, internal martial arts and Taoist meditation worldwide.

From the Author:

This second volume includes additional practices in the standing and moving modes, as well as those done sitting, lying down, and during sexual activity. It also offers an introduction to Taoist internal alchemy. Most importantly, it explores in greater depth the inner dissolving process, the central technique of the intermediate practices. It must be remembered, however, that work done at the more advanced stages will be of value only if a proper foundation has been laid in the preparatory and intermediate stages detailed in Volume 1, Relaxing Into Your Being.
