Relaxing Into Your Being
This is the first volume of a two-book series that peels away the metaphors and explains the living tradition of Taoist meditation, which is little known or taught in the West. Most of what people know about Taoism comes from philosophical texts such as the I-Ching or the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tse.

I've read most of the decent Qigong books that have come out during the past 30 years. Bruce Frantzis has written the best books on Qigong in print today. This book and part two are his two best. He writes and describes techniques, and the experiences exceptionally well. He is able to break down complicated ideas into more manageable, bite sized ideas, thus allowing people to understand... well as much as can be put into words or understood. He has the background, and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese as well as English, so he gives us access to Qigong material that in some parts I had never seen. In other parts of the book he describes things that are familiar, but he does so very well. If I were only allowed two books on Qigong this and part two are the ones that I would choose. From what I understand, people who have taken his workshops say that he is personally a bit of a dick, but if so, he is an intelligent dick and a great writer.
