Build a strong foundation for health, longevity, and spiritual enlightenment with the ancient art of Q igrave;gōng Embryonic Breathing (Internal Elixir).


Chinese Q gōng can be categorized into External Elixir (Wai Dan) and Internal Elixir (Nei Dan). To reach the goals of longevity and spiritual enlightenment, the practitioner must learn Internal Elixir Q gōng.


The first step, and the focus of this book, is to understand the theory and the method of Embryonic Breathing. Practicing this breathing technique will help you



  • Optimize your central energy system
  • Conserve your energy
  • Store this energy at abundant levels

Using ancient Buddhist and Daoist documents, Dr. Y aacute;ng analyzes and discusses meditation theory and training methods in a modern and scientific manner. This double-edged approach will enable you to quickly achieve a high level of understanding.


It is well acknowledged that without a proper foundation, the root of spiritual enlightenment will not be established and the meditative practice of Q gōng for spiritual enlightenment, may be in vain.


Q gōng Embryonic Breathing is organized into three parts



  • Foundations: General Q gōng concepts and meditation theory
  • Translations and commentary of ancient documents related to Embryonic Breathing
  • The practice of Embryonic Breathing meditation

The necessary second and third steps are to practice Q gōng Small Circulation and Q gōng Grand Circulation.



This second edition includes pinyin tonal marks for pronunciation, modern Chinese fonts, and illustration enhancements.
