Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong Techniques for Healing Self, Healing Others Renowned Qigong healer Master Yap Soon Yeong and psychology professor and Qigong trainer Chok C. Hiew team up to release the quintessential guide on the ancient art of Qigong – Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong Healing: Healing Self, Healing Others (published by iUniverse). In Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong Healing, Yap and Hiew detail the meditative movements and practices that allow individuals to begin to heal on a physiological and psychological level. Readers are guided in how to rid the blocked negative energies that is often the root cause of pain, trauma, disease, aging and various chronic issues. Qigong, a centuries-old Chinese system of physical and mental training, has seen a rise in popularity as other Eastern codifications, such as yoga and martial arts, continue to spread in Western societies. Yap and Hiew understand the attractiveness of alternative health care approaches. "Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong (CFQ) Healing stems from the esoteric Qigong tradition in which one actualizes one's inherent self-healing mechanism to free the mind and body from pain and disease without any external input," the authors write. "It is a therapeutic approach whose effectiveness in sustaining and extending life and overcoming most known diseases and genetic disorders has been demonstrated. Conventional medicine explains and treats diseases from a physical basis. Eastern holistic medicine goes deeper." Master Yap Soon Yeong & Chok C. Hiew, Ph.D. In Qigong energy medicine, the most fundamental principle is that life is the consequence of the presence of a harmonious mind flowing smoothly in the body. Problems arise when mind is separated from the body, a state that robs precious life energy from the body blocking the inherent self-healing mechanism responsible for homeostasis and healthy physiological functioning. Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong (CFQ) is the primeval life science of re-connecting or keeping mind in the body to become more alive and to live a long and healthy life. The book's authors, the Founders of CFQ, introduce state-of-the-art healing methods based on authentic internal or energy exercises and meditation techniques. They are original easy-to-learn healing techniques to train on how to remove the common antecedent of disease—the stale energy forces or blockages—to restore life and for self-repair. Psychological and social trauma, chronic pain, disability are rapidly eliminated. CFQ training harmonizes mind, body and spirit holistically instilling a state of deep relaxation and peace as a form of reality. The ultimate purpose is to deepen healing ability for self-care and for healing others.

Imperience: Understanding the Heart of Consciousness presents a brief, contemporary version of timeless spiritual knowledge and intuitive insight into supreme being. It does not, however, endorse any particular supreme being or spiritual tradition—including any rites, rituals, beliefs, dogma, or intercession—as essential to enlightenment. Whether we are persons of faith or no faith, spiritual practitioners or not, we can benefit from understanding the fundamental nature of mind and matter and the core principles that govern them. This understanding supports us to look within our own minds to see firsthand what is true. Because consciousness itself has no material reality, it cannot be experienced objectively, only imperienced directly within our own being. Imperience is how we sense conscious awareness and awaken intuitive insight into the dharma (truth) of nonduality and the very heart of consciousness.

The writings of the twelfth-century Chinese Zen master Ta Hui are as immediately accessible as those of any contemporary teacher, and this book, which introduced them to the English-speaking world in the 1970s, has become a modern classic—a regular feature of recommended reading lists for Zen centers across America, even though the book has become difficult to find. We are happy to make the book available again after more than a decade of scarcity. J. C. Cleary's translation is as noteworthy for its elegant simplicity as for its accuracy. He has culled from the voluminous writings of Ta Hui Tsung Kao in the Chi Yeuh Lu this selection of letters, sermons, and lectures, some running no longer than a page, which cover a variety of subjects ranging from concern over the illness of a friend's son to the tending of an ox. Ta Hui addresses his remarks mainly to people in lay life and not to his fellow monks. Thus the emphasis throughout is on ways in which those immersed in worldly occupations can nevertheless learn Zen and achieve the liberation promised by the Buddha. These texts, available in English only in this translation, come as a revelation for their lucid thinking and startling wisdom. The translator's essay on Chan (Chinese Zen) Buddhism and his short biography of Ta Hui place the texts in their proper historical perspective.

In recent decades, education at all levels has been seriously impoverished by a growing obsession with standards, targets, skills and competences. According to this model, only a circumscribed range of basic cognitive skills and competences are the business of education, whose main role is to provide employability credentials for people competing for jobs in the global economy. The result is a one-dimensional, economistic and bleakly utilitarian conception of the educational task. In Mindfulness and Learning: Celebrating the Affective Dimension of Education, Terry Hyland advances the thesis that education stands in need of a rejuvenation of its affective function – the impact it has on the emotional, social, moral and personal development of learners. Drawing on the Buddhist conception of mindfulness, he advances a powerful argument for redressing this imbalance by enhancing the affective domain of learning. Mindfulness and Learning: Celebrating the Affective Dimension of Education shows how the concept and practice of ‘mindfulness’ – non-judgmental, present moment awareness and experience – can enrich learning at all levels. Mindfulness thus contributes to the enhanced achievement of general educational goals, and helps remedy the gross deficiency of the affective/emotional aspects of contemporary theory and practice. The author outlines a mindfulness-based affective education (MBAE) programme and shows how it might be introduced into educational provision from the early years to adult education with a view to harmonising the cognitive-affective balance across the system.
