Ok for today’s recommend read you may have overlooked (or never heard of) . . . we’re taking a moment of Zen and pointing you in the direction of Singing Dragon. They print (and reprint) authoritative books on complementary and alternative health, Tai Chi, Qigong and ancient wisdom traditions for health, wellbeing, and professional and personal development.
Around the office, we just can’t live without our Tai Chi. So, in particular, we love Singing Dragon’s books by Chungliang Al Huang, the founder of Living Tao Foundation, an international cultural-arts network for lifelong learning. He’s also the director of the Lan Ting Institute, a cross-cultural study and conference center at the sacred and historic Wu Yi Mountain (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the People’s Republic of China), and at Gold Beach, OR in the USA.
Al has written many classic books including Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain: The Essense of Tai Ji; Essential Tai Ji; and The Chinese Book of Animal Powers, all of which are now brought back into print by Singing Dragon. If you do any sort of energy work or tai chi, and you’ve done it for while, you need to read Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain: The Essence of Tai Ji. An amazing classic.
If you’ve never seen Al in action, YouTube has many videos of him demonstrating his ever-evolving style.
