Qigong heißt wörtlich: „mit der Lebensenergie arbeiten“. Alle Übungen der bekannten chinesischen Bewegungspraxis haben die Stärkung der Lebenskraft zum Ziel. Sie dienen somit der generellen Gesunderhaltung und Kräftigung, der Vorbeugung und Behandlung von Krankheiten und nicht zuletzt der psychischen Stabilisierung und spirituellen Entwicklung. Der Qigong-Meister Kenneth Cohen erklärt in diesem international als Grundlagenwerk anerkannten Klassiker nicht nur die Übungspraxis und die philosophischen Grundlagen, sondern er widmet sich auch eingehend dem Verständnis der Heilfunktionen. Dabei berücksichtigt er vor allem auch den westlichen Zugang aus naturwissenschaftlicher, bioenergetischer und medizinischer Sicht. Aus den detaillierten Anleitungen zu den Zyklen „Die acht Brokate“ oder „Das Spiel der fünf Tiere“ sowie mit Hilfe der wirksamen Atem- und Entspannungsübungen kann sich jeder ein individuelles Übungsprogramm zusammenstellen und Qigong erfolgreich in den Alltag integrieren

The Earth and Its Peoples was one of the first texts to present world history in a balanced, global framework, shifting the focus away from political centers of power. This truly global text for the world history survey course employs a fundamental theme--the interaction of human beings and the environment--to compare different times, places, and societies. Special emphasis is given to technology (in its broadest sense) and how technological development underlies all human activity. Highly acclaimed in their fields of study, the authors bring a wide array of expertise to the program. A combination of strong scholarship and detailed pedagogy gives the book its reputation for rigor and student accessibility. The Fourth Edition features extensive new coverage of world events, including globalization in the new millennium. Coverage of China has also been extensively reorganized and rewritten.

Intellectually and visually stimulating, this important landmark book looks at the religious, political, social and artistic significance of the Imperial tombs of the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). It traces the evolutionary development of the most elaborately beautiful imperial tombs to examine fundamental issues on death and the afterlife in one of the world's most sophisticated civilizations. Selected tombs are presented in terms of their structure, artistic programs and their purposes. The author sets the tombs in the context of Chinese attitudes towards the afterlife, the politics of mausoleum architecture, and the artistic vocabulary which was becoming the mainstream of Chinese civilization.
