“In today’s world, so completely pervaded by notions of utilitarianism, it is a wonderful thing indeed if people can simply persist in daily meditation and qigong. In process, they are doing themselves an incredible favor.”
Immersing the mind with the concepts of the Daoist path of health and immortality, Clouds Over Qingcheng Mountain invokes the sacred birthplace of one of China’s mystical mountains that has stimulated both mind and body for generations. While the first volume, Climbing the Steps to Qingcheng Mountain, invited the reader to travel across time and through the history of China and Daoism, Clouds Over Qingcheng Mountain is more focused in its purpose, offering a practical, accessible guide to deepen one’s qigong and meditation practice.
