The Zhong-Lü System of Internal Alchemy

ByLivia Kohn

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book contains a translation and in-depth study of two major texts of internal alchemy, attributed to two well-known immortals, Zhongli Quan and Lü Dongbin, founders of the so-called Zhong Lü tradition, which presents the first major formal structuring of internal alchemy and goes back to the 12th century. The first text entitled “Transmission of the Dao from Zhongli to Lü,” provides keys to understanding energetic transmutation with steps and methods corresponding to the mechanism of the universe. It provides the basis of all of internal alchemy. The second text is the “Conclusive Methods of Numinous Treasure,” written in a more symbolic language and focusing more on specific practices. The book describes with simple clarity the cosmology, transmutations systems, and key practices, making then easily accessible. The work is essential for anyone interested in the history of internal alchemy and for any practitioner of Daoism.
