Wisdom From the Source!
A reader from Los Angeles, California April 7, 2000
I can't imagine a better book on this subject. If you want to learn about this form of healing "from the horse's mouth," this is the book that will provide everything you want to know, and more. Highly recommended.
I Love this book!

I bought 9 Qigong books, this is the best. Grandmaster Ming Pang's insights are profound and breathtaking. The details of the forms were so beautifully described which helped me a lot. I attended many workshops, none provided this extension and depths.
Excellent Book but...

First: Congratulations to the authors of the book "Life More Abundant", I find it to be fascinating and very informative. The photographs of Jane demonstrating the forms are also excellent. However, I suggest that the next edition include an illustration or even photographs which accurately locates the key energy points so vital in Zhineng Qigong. It is not easy for one not educated in anatomy to understand, for example, where the "Door of Spirit" is located: "At the ulnar extremity of the transverse crease of the wrist, in the depression of the radial tendon of the ulnar flexor muscle of the wrist" (Pg. 222). Reading that put a furrow in my layman's brow!
Second: the term "navel" is not quite clear to me. In certain eastern traditions the seat of spiritual power is thought to be a couple of inches below the belly button. Is this the point to be pressed in LCU/PCD? Or would it suffice to simply press the belly button, an easier target to locate?
Third, I'd sure like a hardcover on this wonderful book!

...I will certainly do so, but you have to be a little bit patient with me, as it is a rather large book. But as far as I can tell from the little that I have been able to digest; it seems to be done rather thoroughly, comprising not just the exercise part, but also the philosophy and way of life, that is so often forgotten in most books on qigong and yoga. I must say, that I am quite impressed so far!
