Wang Liping – Daoist Internal Mastery
This book translates Master Wang’s original practice instructions and discourses given during training seminars. His system of internal alchemy goes back to two ancient Daoist texts that outline the concoction of a golden elixir through the dual cultivation of inner nature and life-destiny. This book follows the classics and presents all different kinds of techniques-including walking, pacing, sleeping, circulating the five phases, absorbing tree energy, and capturing planetary essences-in a systematic format and with a great amount of instructional detail. It contains a wealth of information invaluable to anyone interested in genuine Daoist cultivation and elucidates numerous rather obscure concepts to contextualize each practice.
Wang Liping is the most prominent teacher of Daoist internal alchemy in China today.
