About the Author

Shi Xinggui became a student at the Shaolin Monastery at the age of eight. His teachers there included Masters Shi De Shin, Shi Xu Xi, Shi De Su, and Shi De Duzan. In 1988 the author won the National Championship title for kung fu (70 kg class) in Shaolin and again in 1993 and 1994 in Zheng Zou. He received his Shaolin diploma in 1989 from Master Shi De Yuan. He now lives and teaches in Goldegg, Austria.

Reviews

"The book alone will be enough for most beginners to learn the basic moves and begin practicing them right away. A marvelous bonus, however, is the DVD that accompanies the text. . . . The music, based on the pentatonic scale, is particularly soothing, adding to the sense that there is no rush, no right or wrong, and no need to fret about perfection while practicing qi gong. . . . I've tried other books and DVD courses, in the past, but none of them has given me the natural flow of qi gong. . ." * Curled Up With a Good Book, Feb 2009 *
"The scenery and the music on the DVD are very serene and beautiful in a way that was supportive to the exercises and following along, without intruding upon them. Anyone looking for a book on the absolute basics of Qi Gong and how to perform different exercises would not go wrong with picking up this book and DVD. I heartily recommend them." * Gesigewigu's, SpiralNature.com, Feb 2009 *
"This excellent guide teaches some of the basic forms of qigong, a traditional technique of Chinese energy movement that promotes energy and well-being. . . . A 45-minute DVD of selected exercises by Shi Xinggui is included, making this an effective tool for self-instruction." * Book News, Inc., March 2009 *
"This seems to be just as much about inner peace as it is physical exercise. I have gained a new respect for the topic after watching the video. . . . If you are looking for a VERY low-impact exercise system that will, at the very least, improve your flexibility and peace of mind, pick this up and follow along." * Daily Buddhism April 2009 *
"Throughout the text one becomes aware of this kind, gentle, but relentless dedication to taking the reader, trainee or initiate, to new and higher levels of achievement. At no point is there any sense of the beginner's limitations, only a sense of promise ahead and the value inherent in working towards clear goals. . . . while being a book artfully designed to meet the needs of a contemporary, pressured, and chaotic experience, Shaolin Qi Gong: Energy in Motion is also a book that is likely to introduce many to the wisdom of Buddhist spirituality and to the disciplines of perhaps today's most fabled form of martial arts." * Reg Little, New Dawn Magazine, No. 119, Mar/Apr 2010 *
