Global awareness of health and movement is profoundly enriched by the Taoist's
understanding of Chi -- life's energy. No matter what your main interest: Fitness,
healing, sports, or science, the following offerings are part of the world's best
home study programs ever published. These studies and practices are for all
independent learners with a curiosity and a desire for physical health.
For over 4000 years, the Taoists have observed
the ways of nature in the human physical body.
While authentic Taoist understanding is rare
today, Dr. Yang has spent 30 years creating
a brilliant international school of Taoist study and
practice. A school like this has never existed before with
such scientific proficiency. Born and trained in Taiwan,
Dr. Yang earned a western Ph.D. He became a physicist, engineer, scientist,
scholar, educator, author, publisher and an authentic Martial Arts Grand Master.
Dr. Yang is one of the world's most beloved and prolific educators. Luckily,
many of Dr. Yang's theories and Martial Arts teachings can be studied at home
with DVDs and books. Listed below are the most outstanding Taoist studies in
physical energy and health that are available, anywhere.
The best way to teach children about their physical bodies is for us to develop
a thorough understanding of Chi and by caring for our bodies with awareness.
Children learn what they live, and they will notice if we know what we are
talking about, or not. If we simply preach lists of virtuous goals or lists of
what is forbidden, we may be surprised one day to find out that all we have done
is teach prejudice instead of understanding. Children copy what their parents and
teachers do, even though they may appear to be ignoring what we say. If they see
us getting stronger, more balanced, and happier, one day they might sincerely
look into these wonderful studies and practices themselves. Never force young
people to learn a wisdom practice, but if they agree to start, find the best
teacher in your area for them to study with while you educate yourself on
Our main job is to show them how to live, by living well ourselves.

Taoists discovered Chi energy with the careful observation of nature over thousands
of years. The universal Chi energy is referred to as Heavenly Chi, Earth Chi, and
Human Chi. Heavenly Chi is considered in Astrology. Earth Chi is considered in Feng
Shui But in general, when we speak of Chi energy, we usually mean the bio-electricity
of the human body and all its circulatory functions. (The Taoists realize that humans
are part of nature -- that nature is One Event, and not two or more separate things.
The true Taoist view is non-dualistic.)
In these four DVDs, Dr. Yang explains Qigong and the human energetic circulatory
system. Practicing Qigong (Chi Kung) is working to optimize our body's chi
circulation. Anyone who is serious about learning more about physical energies,
energy work and energy healing, will want all four DVDs and book. This is
Dr. Yang's foremost program offered before he goes into a 10-year retreat.
The Root of Chinese Qigong (book) offers Dr. Yang's brilliant bridge of
understanding to both western and eastern students. This is a clear chance for
us to learn more about how the energy of life works and about the hope for the
future that smart science could unfold.
