Phoenix In Graceful Clouds of Blessing
eBook (ePub), 184 Pages
A heritage from ancient time based on profound theories on human nature practiced by Taoists to endure health holistically. The practice is based on the concept of enhancing the internal flow of natural energy bestowed to the human body. In order to strengthen the functioning of the organs, positive energy is gathered and built up to patch the losses caused by negative detriment in life. Exercising through tai chi like motions, the energy is directed through the channels in the human body to regulate the flows of energy in the meridians in respect to each of the organs. The upgrading of the organ functions improves immunity and resists illness, revitalizes the body’s rejuvenation abilities, eases pain at the joints and nerves, tranquilizes the mind and relieves stress. The practice is simple and easy to learn with precise explanation and orthodox method for a thorough understanding of the system. The learning is momentary, the benefits last a life time.

Jul 29, 2016I purchased the “Phoenix in Graceful Clouds of Blessings” e-book in mid-2015. One year later, I can honestly say that that was one of the wisest investments I have made. Master Lok tackles a complex subject in a clear and concise manner. The book is well organized. The information, mnemonics and integrated videos have truly helped deepen my practice. I have also found that this book can be useful as a reference guide for life situations as well as deepening understanding of the world around us. I often find myself reaching for the book for an explanation or reminder, sometimes on a daily basis. This book and the wisdom contained within are a treasure, and I highly recommend it.
Jun 3, 2014Joe Lok’s Phoenix in Graceful Clouds of Blessings is without doubt the finest book and instruction on qigong I have read. It has a number of features that make it unique among qigong resources. First, the book has thorough explanations of the theories that underlie the practice of qigong. Much of this is “closed door” teaching that traditionally would only be taught publicly. As a Westerner, Daoist theories of health are foreign to me, but Master Lok presents them in a way that even I can understand them. The explanations are clear enough for beginners, but even more advanced practitioners will benefit from the discussion. This is remarkable in itself: it is very difficult to write a book that can benefit both experienced and novice practitioners, yet somehow Master Lok has managed to do so. The book is more than just theory, however. It includes instruction in is a complete system of qigong. Since it is an e-book, Phoenix in Graceful Clouds of Blessings includes something that... More > conventionally produced qigong books cannot: links to Master Lok performing the form and teaching the individual movements. The videos give basic instruction, while the text supplements the videos with more detailed explanations of the internal dimensions of the movements. In other words, it doesn’t just tell you what to do, it tells you why. This again is unique with both live qigong instruction and the books I have read on the subject. Add to that concrete suggestions on how to go about practicing the form, and you have a very effective system of instruction that can be implemented virtually immediately. I have been practicing the first few movements of the form on a nearly daily basis. Initially, my practice did not generate the feeling of qi in my body. Even without this, however, I received physical benefits from my practice, including realigning my spine and undoing kinks from vigorous exercise. As I have begun paying close attention to details I had missed in my initial practice, I have begun feeling the energy in my body. This is more than I have gotten in the taiji or qigong practice I have done and is a mark of the effectiveness of Master Lok’s teaching. I cannot recommend this book too highly. It is an excellent resource for any practitioner of qigong, taiji, or any of the internal arts; it is also a great complement for people who work out hard and need something to help them maintain a balance in their physical activities.

May 2, 2014It is my pleasure to review,"Phoenix In Graceful Clouds of Blessing", by Master Lok. I highly recommend this product to all who are interested in Qigong, and authentic instruction. Well presented, with meticulous description, (which is part and parcel to visualizing the correct essence that accompanies the teachings within this vast knowledge base). The teachings are clearly accompanied by video tutorials, enabling the student/practitioner to develop all the individual forms, (a necessity to understanding the core of the practice), as well as learning the variations of the form sequence. The actual nature of the words Qigong, holds a meaning that suggests the training, and development of working with the Qi. The format of this training is based upon the learning process/development of building a "Qi sensitivity" within the body. "Phoenix In Graceful Clouds of Blessing", is of the highest standard, and will be cherished as a life long endeavour.
Apr 17, 2014I have quite a few publications & DVD's for Tai Chi & Qigong. While most have been useful as references for my practice, none have covered the topic of the mystery surrounding how the Energy of these regarding the health benefits actually works. Translating the process from a Chinese language-based mind to the English language is a challenge that Master Lok has met successfully. This book is the only one I have seen (and I understand the only one in existence) that has dared to cover this complicated topic in such a comprehensive but simple manner to convey what is really happening with our movements especially when supplemented by our awareness. I suspect that the majority of us don't understand the actual process of why & how the energy involved in our practice contributes to the health of our bodies but with this book the potential of raising our personal practice to a higher level is there. The definitions, detailed explanations of the flow & gathering of energy,... More > instructions for the movements, as well as the pictures & the videos make this a must for the serious practitioner of the art. Knowledge is Power and this book provides both.< Less
Apr 12, 2014Master Lok's book is unprecedented. In no other book has form and internal function been so clearly linked, explained, and mapped out. Master Lok is really raising the bar by including links to videos that visually show what the literature is explaining. Master Lok shows a command of the movements that is rarely seen. Master Lok has done something not done before by giving the reader high level, inner door concepts that are rarely given (even to disciples/inner door students). I would recommend this book for the beginner, and all the way up to the highest level practitioner. If you want to use your internal art as a healing mechanism, then you should not pass up this rare opportunity.
