ZYQ has a seven thousand year old lineage and represents the wisdom and knowledge of Grandmasters from many generations. This School belongs to the highest level of Qigong. Practicing ZYQ allows one to break through to a sphere of unique possibilities, to understand the world, and to find our place and purpose in it. ZYQ is not associated with any religion, politics or ideology. It is more close to science about Life. This book includes some basic knowledge from ancient Chinese philosophy, the description of exercises and a lot of stories to support their understanding. One can find here the answers to many questions on the topic. This is the second book on ZYQ in USA; the first one was published in 2009. Altogether there are 4 books in the series, one for each stage of ZYQ. Three of them have already been translated and published in the USA, Russia, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Israel, Latvia and Romania. All of them are intended for general readership and for Qigong practitioners. Enjoy them!
