100 Days of Pulling Qi: the Eight Storing Qi & Developing Sensitivity Exercises

A deep insight into the layers of discovery possible in an internal cultivation practice

Using the Eight Storing Qi & Developing Sensitivity Practices as the key, Andrew Nugent-Head lays out how deep a single practice can be. Featuring over 100 practice sessions with Andrew around the world, in each session Andrew introduces a new concept, a new layer to become aware of, a new understanding of cultivation–with a heavy emphasis on the Empty State as a foundation for everything that follows.

"The most tragic thing I see as an 'expert' in Daoyin/Qigong practices is when someone has been doing the same practice the same way for many years. A practice is a journey, and in each practice we should not mindlessly go through the motions, but seek new understandings and skills. There is a goal, a destination when embarking on cultivation practices, and it takes great discipline to keep moving forward like the turtle and not falling asleep like the hare. Practicing the internal arts is not like going to the gym, getting on the treadmill and checking out during the exercise. It is about checking in with ourselves each moment, each repetition, each time."
