Les femmes croient souvent - à tort - qu'avancer en âge signifie pour elles la fin de leur capacité de séduction, une baisse de la libido, de la vie sexuelle et même du bien-être physique et psychique. Pourtant, vieillir peut tout aussi bien rimer avec un épanouissement global et durable lorsque l'on dispose des bonnes méthodes et que l'on pratique les bons exercices. Dans cet ouvrage pratique, Mantak Chia et William U. Wei expliquent comment la pratique physique et énergétique du Chi Kung peut aider à équilibrer les hormones, à contrebalancer la croissance de cellules anormales, à prévenir le cancer de l'utérus et à restaurer la vigueur du système reproducteur féminin. Grâce à cet ouvrage richement illustré, vous découvrirez : • Des techniques pour ouvrir les circuits énergétiques liés aux organes reproducteurs de la femme et libérer les blocages qui mènent à des dysfonctionnements sexuels et à la maladie. • Des exercices de renforcement musculaire - en ayant recours à un oeuf de jade - et des massages sexuels énergétiques, afin de stimuler les hormones anti-âge et tonifier le vagin, le périnée et la poitrine. • Des conseils diététiques pour se régénérer, avec notamment des compléments nutritionnels d'origine végétale. MANTAK CHIA, maître internationalement connu de l'Alchimie interne et de Chi Kung, a fondé le Système curatif du Tao universel en 1979. Il a transmis ses enseignements à des dizaines de milliers d'étudiants et d'instructeurs à travers le monde et est l'auteur d'une cinquantaine d'ouvrages, parmi lesquels les best-sellers L'Homme multi-orgasmique et La Femme multi-orgasmique, parus chez le même éditeur. WILLIAM U. WEI, instructeur de grade supérieur du Tao curatif universel, a enseigné avec Maître Chia dans plus de trente pays.
Dans Chi Nei Tsang, Maître Mantak Chia et sa femme Maneewan continuent à transmettre au monde occidental l'ancienne sagesse, éprouvée par le temps, du système de soins taoïste. Chi Nei Tsang offre une une approche nouvelle de la guérison, l'explication détaillée des techniques d'autoguérison et des méthodes pour éviter les énergies négatives. Le "Chi Nei Tsang" repose sur des milliers d'années d'expérience et enseigne comment prendre pleinement en charge santé et bien-être. F C'est au centre du nombril qu'émotions négatives, angoisses, tensions eti maladies s'accumulent. Lorsque cela se produit, toutes les fonctions vitales stagnent. La plupart des techniques propres aux autres systèmes n'agissent qu'aux extrémités du corps, à distance du nombril et des organes, alors que les techniques du "Chi Nei Tsang" enseignées dans ce livre, peuvent être appliquées au centre abdominal, là où se concentrent les forces de l'énergie universelle, de l'énergie cosmique et de l'énergie terrestre.
Bien que nous puissions satisfaire nos faims d'amour, de santé ou de richesse, à moins de satisfaire notre faim naturelle de connaître notre Divin Intérieur nous ne nous sentirons jamais vraiment épanouis. Chaque être a été programmé de connaître son Divin Intérieur, car Il est le créateur intelligent de notre système Bio-énergétique, une force que certains appellent Dieu, et c'est seulement lorsque nous nous souvenons de lui et fusionnons consciemment avec lui que nous pouvons nous réaliser. Les sages appellent cette manière de se nourrir l'accès à la véritable nourriture des Dieux. Cet ouvrage aborde l'ensemble de ces sujets, et répond aux principales questions qu'ils suscitent.
A new edition of the bestseller • The first book to reveal in the West the Taoist techniques that enable women to cultivate and enhance their sexual energy • Reveals Taoist secrets for shortening menstruation, reducing cramps, and compressing more chi into the ovaries for greater sexual power • Teaches the practice of total body orgasm For thousands of years the sexual principles and techniques presented here were taught by Taoist masters in secret only to a small number of people (sworn to silence), in the royal courts and esoteric circles of China. This is the first book to make this ancient knowledge available to the West. The foundation of healing love is the cultivation, transformation, and circulation of sexual energy, known as jing. Jing energy is creative, generative energy that is vital for the development of chi (vital life-force energy) and shen (spiritual energy), which enables higher practices of spiritual development. Jing is produced in the sexual organs, and it is energy women lose continually through menstruation and child bearing. Mantak Chia teaches powerful techniques developed by Taoist masters for the conservation of jing and how it is used to revitalize women's physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Among the many benefits conferred by these practices are a reduction in the discomfort caused by menstruation and the ability to attain full-body orgasm.
A guide to restoring men’s sexual health and function to maintain a flourishing sex life well into old age • Includes fully illustrated instructions for exercises to clear energetic blockages of the male reproduction organs, restore function, reduce prostate enlargement, and prevent prostate gland cancer • Presents a routine of exercises to be practiced daily as well as guidance on supporting your practice with nutritional and herbal supplements • Explains how these techniques can forestall the need for surgery in early stages of prostate disease Age need not be a death sentence for men’s sexual health and vitality. Taoist Master Mantak Chia and William U. Wei explain how to use the energetic and physical practice of Chi Kung to not only maintain a flourishing sex life well into old age but also reduce prostate enlargement and prevent prostate gland cancer. With fully illustrated step-by-step instructions, the authors provide exercises and techniques to open the energetic pathways connected to the male reproductive organs and clear the energy blockages that lead to sexual dysfunction and illness. They explain how to perform sexual energy and prostate gland massages and detail stretching exercises and the practice of chi weight lifting--attaching weights to the penis and scrotum to enhance sexual vigor. They explain that while these techniques are primarily preventive, they can also act to regenerate and restore function, forestalling the need for surgery in early stages of prostate disease. The authors present a routine of exercises to be practiced daily as well as guidance on supporting your practice with nutritional and herbal supplements.
The shamanic roots of Taoist practice • Explains the principles of the Taoist Medicine Wheel, including the Five Elements, the animals of the Chinese zodiac, and the trigrams of the I Ching • Includes exercises from the “Wheel of Love” to access the Tao of Ecstasy • Contains illustrated teaching stories about the Eight Immortals Thousands of years ago the immortals known as the Shining Ones shipwrecked on the Chinese coast. Passing their shamanic practices--such as ecstatic flight and how to find power animals and spirit guides--on to the indigenous people, they also taught them the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel. From the Taoist Medicine Wheel came the principles of Yin and Yang, the Five Elements, the Eight Forces, the Chinese zodiac, and the I Ching. The Taoist Medicine Wheel can also be found at the foundation of traditional Chinese medicine and the esoteric sexual practices of Taoist Alchemy. In the Taoist Shaman, Master Mantak Chia and Kris Deva North explain the shamanic principles of the Taoist Medicine Wheel, how it is oriented on the Five Elements rather than the Four Directions, how it relates to the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac and the trigrams of the I Ching, and how it aligns with the Eight Forces of the Pakua. Through illustrated teaching stories, the authors show how the energetic principles of each of the Eight Forces are reflected in the Eight Immortals. Revealing the wheel’s application to sacred sexuality, they offer exercises from the “Wheel of Love” to strengthen and deepen relationships as well as providing a means to access the Tao of Ecstasy.
A revolutionary practice for couples to enhance sexuality and reach higher states of consciousness • How to make sex a conscious decision, not an accidental encounter • Discusses how slowness increases sensitivity and awakens the body’s innate mechanism for ecstasy • Reveals how sexuality can be sustainable and enjoyable well into old age While fast, hot, orgasm-driven sex can bring momentary satisfaction, in the long run it can become boring and mechanical, causing many couples to lose interest and stop making time for physical intimacy. The first step to revive a waning sex life or make a healthy one more fulfilling, says author Diana Richardson, is to make sex a conscious decision rather than an accidental encounter. Focusing on eye contact, subtle sensations, and deep breathing, Diana’s practice of slow sex awakens the body’s innate mechanism for ecstasy, unlocking the door to extraordinary realms of sensitivity, sensuality, and higher consciousness. Exploring the healing, spiritual power of slow sex, this book offers a step-by-step guide for committed couples to transform sex into a meditative, loving union of complementary energies. It explains how slow sex increases sensitivity and sexual vitality and how, because it creates and restores love, slow sex is loving sex. With a focus on coolness rather than heat, this practice provides couples a way to reach a shared meditative state and use it as a vehicle to achieve higher consciousness. Illustrating different positions for eye contact, deep sustained penetration, and soft penetration, this book reveals that sex truly can be sustainable and enjoyable well into old age.
• Includes practices for cleansing the blood of toxins, relieving pain, using sexual energy for healing, and other tools for the treatment and prevention of disease • Explains the unique healing potential of chi kung color therapy and how to harness universal and earthly elemental energies in healing • By Mantak Chia, coauthor of The Multi-Orgasmic Man Taoists believe in an underlying unity that permeates the universe and intimately binds all things.

An ancient Taoist system for detoxifying and rejuvenating the internal organs • Presents techniques to clear blockages in the body’s energy flow • Includes illustrated exercises to relieve common ailments, revitalize the organs, and enable readers to take charge of their own health and well-being • Focuses on the navel center, where negative emotions, stress, and illness accumulate The techniques of Chi Nei Tsang evolved in Asia during an era when few physicians were available and people had to know how to heal themselves. Many people today have symptoms that modern medicine is not able to cure because a physical source for the problem is not easily found. The energies of negative emotions, stress, and tension--all common in modern life--and the weight of past illness accumulate in the abdominal center, causing energy blockages and congestion. When this occurs, all vital functions stagnate and myriad problems arise. By practicing the techniques of Chi Nei Tsang, this stagnation is removed and the vital organs surrounding the navel center are detoxified and rejuvenated. Master Chia teaches readers how to avoid absorbing negative energies from others and take full charge of their health through the self-healing techniques of Chi Nei Tsang. He offers fully illustrated exercises that show how to detoxify the internal organs and clear the energy (chi) channels throughout the body. He also presents methods for balancing emotions, managing stress, and observing the body in order to recognize, ameliorate, and prevent maladies before they become a problem.
An illustrated guide to releasing emotional and physical blockages in the pelvic area through massage • Presents step-by-step instructions for sexual organ massages for women and men • Explains techniques to release knots, unravel nerve and lymphatic tangles, dissolve toxins and sediments, and increase blood flow • Effective for impotency, frequent and difficult urination, painful menstruation, ovarian cysts, menopause symptoms, painful intercourse, and low libido as well as back pain, sciatica, and hormone imbalance Our sexual organs play a major role in our physical and emotional health. Many emotional traumas and stresses are stored in the pelvic region in the form of tension in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons and imbalances in the meridians and organs, resulting in an accumulation of toxins and energetic knots and tangles. Freeing the jing chi of the sexual organs--a powerful source of healing energy--Karsai Nei Tsang helps to resolve physical and emotional blockages in the pelvic area through massage, meridian clearing, and detoxification. Illustrating complete sexual organ massages for women and for men, this book guides you through the techniques of Karsai Nei Tsang--including necessary detox preparations and the underlying Chi Nei Tsang principles--and shows you how to release knots and tight muscles (including the hip, buttock, and thigh muscles), unravel nerve and lymphatic tangles, dissolve toxins and sediments, and increase blood flow to the pelvic area. Addressing common problems associated with our sexual organs, this practice can be used to treat impotency, frequent and difficult urination, painful menstruation, ovarian cysts, menopause symptoms, painful intercourse, and low libido. It is also effective in alleviating back pain and sciatica, improving the body’s alignment, strengthening the pelvic floor, balancing the hormones, and increasing general vitality.

In the intense and exhilarating Extreme Risk series debut, a hotshot snowboarder and a rebel with a cause try to let go of the past—and find a future with each other. Twenty-one-year-old professional snowboarder Z Michaels is the bad boy of Park City, Utah. He’s always had his pick of any girl in town—and on the competition circuit. But underneath his cool exterior is a young man in turmoil, trying to take the edge off tragedy by overindulging in sex and shredding the slopes. In fact, Z’s rash behavior is a thinly veiled attempt to blunt his emotional suffering with physical pain. Ophelia Richardson isn’t like any girl Z has ever met. Though she’s from New Orleans, she’s no Southern belle—and she’s not shy about being miserable in frozen, godforsaken Park City. But after nearly dying in the same drag-racing accident that killed her boyfriend, she needs a place to heal, both physically and emotionally. The last thing Ophelia wants right now is a boyfriend—especially one as rich and reckless as Z. But Ophelia soon discovers that he isn’t what he seems. If anything, Z may be even more damaged than she is. Feeling alone in the world, Z and Ophelia find a connection unlike any they’ve ever known. But their tormented pasts pull them in every direction, forcing their relationship into a downhill slide before it even begins—unless they can find the strength in each other to trust, grow, and love again. Praise for Shredded “Z from Tracy Wolff’s Shredded is so hot he will melt your heart!”—New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy “Shredded features two gorgeously damaged characters and an amazingly written story that kept me on the edge of my seat! Love it!”—Toni Aleo, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Assassins series “A blazing story from start to finish!”—Fresh Fiction “Much love to this story!”—Examiner.com “I absolutely loved this book, and can’t wait for everyone else to read it.”—Bookish Things and More “Emotionally gripping with characters you won’t soon forget, Shredded will grab your attention and keep it throughout and leave you eagerly anticipating the next book.”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews “I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book in this series.”—Kinky Book Club
A guide to strengthening and repairing the tendons to reverse the effects of aging • Shows how strengthening the tendons can lead to more energy, healthier organs, and prevention of arthritis • Explains how to practice the postures alone or with a partner • Includes the Mung Beans hitting practice, which repairs damaged tendons and joints; relieves constipation, stomach cramps, and headaches; and aids in detoxification Healthy tendons are the foundation of true strength in the body. Strong and supple tendons and open joints allow more space to store raw energy, which can then be transformed into higher creative and spiritual energy. The eight postures of Tendon Nei Kung are specifically designed to open the joints and fortify and grow all the tendons in the body, strengthening them as a unit. Like the practice of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, Tendon Nei Kung cultivates the ability to move the earth force up from the ground, through the feet, and into the body, in this case raising it to nourish the tendons. In Tendon Nei Kung, Mantak Chia explains how to perform the eight postures individually as well as with a partner. He reveals how regular practice of Tendon Nei Kung can help prevent and relieve arthritis by forcing poisoning acid out of the body to make room for healing chi energy. He provides ten supplementary exercises to help heal damaged tendons and joints without strenuous movement and also includes information on the Mung Beans hitting practice, an ancient practice that in addition to repairing damaged tendons and joints also aids in detoxification and relieves constipation, stomach cramps, and headaches.

Craniosacral therapy and Chi Kung practices to harmonize emotions, release chronic tensions, and optimize the flow of energy • Provides illustrated instructions for movement exercises, breathwork, self-massage, and emotional intelligence meditations to free the flow of energy in the body • Reveals clear parallels between the craniosacral rhythm and the flow of chi • Explains how to release energetic blockages and emotional and physiological knots, activate the energetic pumps of the 3 tan tiens, and tap in to the Cosmic Flow Exploring the connections between Western craniosacral therapy and Chi Kung, Taoist master Mantak Chia and craniosacral instructor Joyce Thom detail movement exercises, breathwork practices, self-massage techniques, and focused meditations from Taoist and other wisdom traditions to release and harmonize the flow of energy in the body and optimize our potential for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The authors link the craniosacral rhythm--the gentle flow of cerebrospinal fluid from the head (cranium) to the tailbone (sacrum)--and the flow of chi throughout the body, circulated by the pumps of the three tan tiens. They explain how these subtle energetic flows indicate the harmony or disharmony of the whole person and are greatly affected by physical traumas, chronic tensions, and unresolved emotions. For example, the psoas muscle, known in Taoism as the muscle of the Soul, connects the spine to the legs and is the first muscle to contract when anger or fear triggers our fight-or-flight response. Often a storehouse of subconscious stressors, this muscle’s sensitivity is connected to many common ailments like back pain. Providing step-by-step illustrated exercise instructions, the authors explain how to identify and unwind energetic blockages and emotional and physiological knots. They explore emotional intelligence exercises for tuning in to our hearts so we can listen to our bodies’ messages and learn to relieve related emotional burdens. They also reveal how to activate the cranial, respiratory/cardiac, and sacral pumps of the three tan tiens to optimize the body’s energetic flow and explain how, when our energy is flowing freely, we can enter the Cosmic Flow--a state of calm well-being and extraordinary creativity where we find ourselves truly at one with the universe.
Explores the deep, internal work necessary for the effective practice of tai chi • Reveals the Taoist principles that gave birth to the Yang-style tai chi forms • Shows how tai chi can circulate powerful healing energies through the body Taoist adepts developed tai chi as both a martial art and a way to cultivate their physical body, energy body, and spirit body. Like all Taoist exercises, its main purpose is to form a connection to the basic energy that is the foundation of all life: chi. Until the beginning of the twentieth century, tai chi was considered a secret practice that was passed down only within a closely knit structure of family and loyal disciples. Despite its widespread growth in popularity as a martial art and health exercise, many of its underlying internal practices remain unknown. The Inner Structure of Tai Chi explores the deep, internal work necessary for the effective practice of tai chi. Designed for practitioners at every level, the book contains step-by-step illustrated instructions for mastering the 13 forms of early Yang-style tai chi, also known as Tai Chi Chi Kung. The authors demonstrate the relationship of the inner structure of tai chi to the absorption, transformation, and circulation of the three forces that animate all life--the Universal force, the Cosmic force, and the Earth force--revealing the principles and practices necessary to receive the full spectrum of physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits that tai chi can bring.
Auditory Physiology and Perception documents the proceedings of the 9th International Symposium on Hearing held in Careens, France, 9-14 June 1991. The aim of the symposium was to promote exchanges between hearing scientists working with different approaches from cell biology to psychology. The volume is organized into 10 parts. Part I contains papers on the biology of inner ear cells. Part II presents studies on auditory periphery functioning. Part III examines frequency selectivity while Part IV contains papers that deal with the subject of pitch. The papers in Part V examine the coding of intensity. Parts VI and VII discuss temporal analyses and spectral shape analysis, respectively. Part VIII takes up spectro-temporal processing. Part IX covers binaural interactions and sound localization. The studies in Part X focus on pathologies, such as the relations between evoked otoacoustic emissions and pure tone audiometry and the effect of short duration acoustic trauma on activity of single neurons in the ventral cochlear nucleus. The final chapter of the text is a tribute to Professor Zwicker, a leading scientist in hearing, who passed away some months before the symposium.
A fully illustrated guide to abdominal massage for improved cardiovascular health, organ detoxification, and enhanced vital energy • Includes fully illustrated massage instructions to open restricted blood vessels, direct blood flow for healing, balancing blood pressure, and detoxifying organs • Details specific massage treatments for many common ailments such as lower back pain, sciatica, asthma, headaches, and reproductive issues • Explains the ancient art of reading pulses to diagnose organ health • Reveals how blood acts as the vehicle for our vital energy Blood and chi often flow side by side throughout the body, the blood acting as the vehicle for our vital energy. Areas of slow or congested circulation lead to blockages in the flow of vital energy and toxin accumulation in the body. The practice of Life Pulse Massage allows these blockages to be cleared, revitalizing cardiovascular function, detoxifying the organs, and restoring the flow of blood and chi throughout the body. In this fully illustrated guide to Life Pulse Massage, Master Mantak Chia details abdominal massage practices to open restricted blood vessels, direct blood flow to specific areas for healing, release arterial tension to rebalance high or low blood pressure, and detoxify individual organs and body systems such as the liver, lungs, lymph nodes, and colon. He shows how to clear and activate the master pulses of the navel and aorta and synchronize these master pulses with the 52 pulses of the whole body for optimum circulation and energy balance. He explains the ancient art of reading pulses to diagnose organ health as well as how to recognize internal health states through the unique positions and shapes of the navel. Detailing specific Life Pulse Massage treatments for many common ailments such as lower back pain, sciatica, asthma, headaches, and reproductive issues, Master Chia shows how liberating the flow of blood and chi can prevent illness before it takes hold, revitalize the organs, and set the stage for optimum health.
Globalization, the information age, and the rise of the knowledge-based economy are significantly transforming the way we acquire, disseminate, and transform knowledge. And, as a result, knowledge production is becoming closer and more directly linked to economic competitiveness. This evolution is also putting new and urgent demands on academic institutions to adjust to the changing needs of society and economy. In particular, there is growing pressure on the institutions of higher education and research in developed economies to find and affirm their new role in the national innovation system. Their counterparts in developing economies need to define their role in supporting emerging structures of the innovation system. This book examines the role of universities and national research institutes in social and economic development processes. Featuring contributions that showcase initiatives and innovations from around the world, including China, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Scandinavia, Southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Western Europe, it offers timely insight that will be of interest to policymakers, university administrators, economic and social leaders, and researchers alike.
