MacRitchie, who is founder of the National Qigong Association USA, among other activities pertaining to Chinese medicine, has enlisted help from 22 contributors to prepare this text covering chi kung (known also as qigong, quigong, chi-gung, chee gung, and ji kong). After an overview of history, theory, and energy systems, the presentation introduces both beginning and advanced practices, with a section on how to incorporate chi kung into everyday life. The practices comprise meditative, breathing, and movement exercises designed to slow the aging process, promote longevity, and enhance energy flow, including sexual energy. B&w drawings support the text. Thorsons is an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers Ltd. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
