Those of you who have worked with me in The Healing Tao or read my books on breathing or attended my retreats at Esalen Institute know that I greatly emphasize grounding as part of my overall work with breathing, health, healing, wellness, and consciousness. Obviously, the great Taoist masters have always suggested standing, walking, and doing tai chi and qigong barefooted on the earth. Unfortunately, this is becoming increasingly difficult in todays world, which is ever-more insulated from the energy of the earth.
Now comes a book, called Earthing, with a deep understanding of some of how this actually works, along with simple tools that make it possible to practice grounding inside and outside when you are unable to stand or walk or move or lie directly on the earth with bare skin (which is paramount). Rather than explain it to you here, I recommend that you download a free audio of the entire book. The key is that you can now connect directly to the earth’s energy inside your own home or office
To download the the book click on the link below, then click on Home, then click on Earthing Audio Listen Now, and then download the MP3 files. You can also read some of the amazing research on Earthing that has already been done.
Renowned cardiologist Stephen Sinatra M.D. has this to say about Earthing: I regard Earthing as the greatest health breakthrough in all my years in medical practice. Regular grounding (another name for Earthing) restores the bodys natural electrical state, calms the nervous system, reduces inflammation, and improves circulation. No pill on Earth can do what Mother Earth does!
I find what this company offers so important that I have just affiliated with it. I hope you will look into the information, research, and tools they offer, which can be a tremendous adjunct to your qigong and mediation practices, and which can also help connect you to the earth when you are reading, watching, TV, talking with friends, or whatever.
By the way, be sure to visit You Tube and look up some videos from alternative health guru Dr. Mercola discussing Earthing with people involved with both the book and the research.
I hope you are having a great summer!
With best regards,
