Description

Bestselling author Pedram Shojai, "The Urban Monk," presents a comprehensive guide on how Taoist alchemical practices can help you release stress, harness life force energy, and awaken your true self.

"We have fallen asleep to the knowledge of our true nature, and now it is time to wake up." --Pedram Shojai

There is a way to break free from trance of modern life and awaken to your true, limitless nature. The path lies in an ancient system of Taoist alchemy, and with Inner Alchemy, qi gong master, physician, and former monk Pedram Shojai presents an in-depth guide for harnessing the transformational power of this wisdom in your own life:
  • Part 1 lays out Taoist principles and philosophy for understanding the body's energy matrix and the nature of our current challenges--all in down-to-earth language
  • Part 2 covers specific exercises and techniques for mastering your energy and awakening your true power--including diet, meditation, exercise, sleep, lifestyle tips, and traditional qi gong sets
  • Part 3 provides an advanced exploration of traditional Taoism for modern times, along with a 100-day practice formula to help you regulate your energy, wake up from the hypnotic daze of daily life, and make the world we live in a better place

"The process of turning the material 'lead' of our human experience into the 'gold' of awakening is the essence of this ancient science of spirituality," writes Shojai. "My promise is that if you practice what you learn in this book, your life will change in ways that you have never imagined.
