Books for Medical Qigong

Mastery of Energy Academy

If you are interested in mastery of energy, you are not alone! For thousands of years, the Eastern traditions have been fascinated with energy, life force, vitality, health, and power. Through the martial arts, medical qigong, and meditation, they developed systems and paradigms for understanding energy. My approach is to use these systems for cultivation, while maintaining a curious and open stance on their various belief systems, knowing that beliefs themselves shape the reality we perceive. With that in mind, I present these best of energy cultivation books.
