This book is essential reading for all Westerners seeking to integrate qigong, taiji, Daoist meditation, energy healing, and therapy practices with deep psychological insights from their own culture. It gives sharp focus to fuzzy issues: Reichian orgasm theory vs. Dao sex energy cultivation; psychological adjustment vs. wuwei and liberation; heady analytical thinking vs. whole-body process and correlative thinking; Jungian symbolic alchemy within ego vs. substantial alchemical distillation of an immortal soul; the Western unconscious vs. primordiali-qi model. The work presents a breath-taking, cutting-edge Daoist dialectic with an amazing array of therapieskinesiology, energy psychology, positive psychology, psychosomanautics, cognitive therapy, and more. Its a milestone. Definitely required reading for my own Daoist Depth Psychology program.
