Qigong Meets Quantum Physics by Imke Bock-Mobius

Qigong meets Quantum Physics is a wonderful integration of the various principles of qigong, mysticism, and the natural sciences. In the best Daoist tradition, Bock-Mobius has surmounted the duality of any discussion of religion (or philosophy) and science, and outlined her compelling vision of how it all comes together. Readers of all stripes will find that this lucidly written volume really enhances their understanding of qigong, quantum physics, and more.

That the author is talented is all of these areas is apparent from page one. A physicist by training, Bock-Mobius took ill while in China several years ago, and was cured by the application of qigong. This experience led her to study Chinese and Qigong, and to view her work in the sciences in a different manner. Her wonderful descriptions and explanations of the various principles involved are stunning in their simplicity and clarity, and reward reading again. Qigong Meets Quantum Physics is a must read for anyone seeking wholeness: those who practice qigong will find that they approach the stances with a fresh eye, while those who ponder the mystical and the cosmological will find that veils of separation are a little thinner.

Experienced in other forms of energy and light work, she resides in southern Germany where she teaches qigong, practices shiatsu, and gives lectures at both academic and popular venues.

 

 


A Talk with Peter Russell, author of Letting Go of Nothing: Relax Your Mind and Discover the Wonder of Your True Nature

Most of the world’s spiritual traditions encourage letting go in one form or another. Non-attachment to outcomes, surrendering desires, accepting the present, opening to a higher power, relinquishing the ego, forgiveness—they all entail a letting go.

Stalking the Wild Pendulum, by Itzhak Bentov

Bentov says: “I am attempting in this book to build a model of the universe that will satisfy the need for a comprehensive picture of ‘what our existence is all about.’ In other words, a holistic model that encompasses not only the physical, observable universe that is our immediate environment and the distant universe observed by our astronomers but also other ‘realities’ as well.”

Spiritual Experiences in Lucid Dreams by Clare R. Johnson, author of Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Lucid Dreaming

In lucid dreams, we are aware that we are dreaming, and with this awareness, we can guide and shape the dream, or go with the flow of events. We may find ourselves flying over magnificent vistas, breathing underwater, transforming into an eagle, hugging a much missed deceased friend, or simply soaking up the astonishingly real imagery and sensations of being conscious in a dream world. When we engage lucidly with our dreams, we illuminate them from within.

A Revolution of Angels By Dawna Markova

| by Dawna Markova

When I was five, my grandmother who was a Russian midwife and healer told me a creation myth about a huge crystal bowl in the dark sky. One night it shattered into millions of tiny seeds of light that lodged inside of every being on the planet. Each was called a spot of grace. She told me that our task as humans is to find, grow, and shine that seed into the darkness of the world. She said that when everyone does this, the bowl will be made whole again...These days, in a fragmented world of more than 6 billion people, it’s more important than ever that each one of us understands we’re unique and make a difference. So I decided to ask people to send me stories about the people and moments that helped them recognize that uniqueness and grow it.”

Coyote Wisdom: The Power of Story in Healing by Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona

| by Cheryl Shainmark

According to the author, we each contain our own hidden wisdom for how to change or heal, but it is the healer’s job to pull that knowledge out. The right story challenges our hidden assumptions, (that change is not possible, or that there is no way out or only one way out), by presenting us with new possibilities. Mehl-Madrona says that stories are alchemy — if we hear enough stories about transformation then we can’t help but transform. This is powerful stuff, as is the idea that biology follows context — and Coyote Wisdom is a beautiful and powerful book.”

| by Cheryl Shainmark
