Calligraphy, Painting, Qi Circulation and Healthy Living
By Jin Sheng Tu
Master Tu's forthcoming book is a monumental work. Culminated from over 20 years of work, it is the first book of its kind. Qigong training promotes healthy living through the art of Chinese calligraphy and painting in accordance with the theory of five phases (also known as theory of five elements). In this book, Tu reveals the secret of circulating qi through Chinese calligraphy for the first time. By practicing the five scripts of Chinese calligraphy (cursive, running, clerical, standard and seal) and painting the five flowers (lotus, bamboo, chrysanthemum, plum and orchids) you can energize the five organs (heart, liver, spleen, lungs and kidneys). Health secrets involving the five colors and the five phases are combined with breathing exercises to eliminate toxins and open the eight extraordinary vessels (meridians). The eight extraordinary vessels are discussed in depth. You’ll learn the secrets of longevity, treatment of disease and healthy living at the highest level.
The book includes over one hundred of Master Tu's paintings from the last few decades. Some of these works have been featured in art books of collections of internationally acclaimed artists. Whether you are an aspiring artist, a qigong practitioner or just enjoy fine painting, you will find this book an enjoyable reading and learning experience.
