Eight Extraordinary Meridians Training Program


The following titles, listed below, are links to the separate sections and chapters in the book ‘The Eight Extraordinary Meridians Qigong’ training program, in the order that they appear. It begins with An Introduction To Qigong, which is an overview of 50+ pages. Each following chapter is one specific practice to study and learn. Together they make up the whole program. This is so that people can print, study and practice each part in a developmental sequence.

Or the complete book is presented at the end, under the title The Whole Program, and can be downloaded at once.

Each of the practices also has a free audio track, which can be followed as if you are sitting in a class. Indeed, some of them were recorded in the classroom. Click on the link on this page and you are sent to a page which asks for your email address. Filling in your address and clicking on it results in an email sent to you with a link in it to download the audio. This is then downloaded as a ‘Zip’ file, which can be opened and played. There is no cost involved, and your email information with be secure. You can go through each audio track as you get to that practice, or you can download them all at the same time, in which case you will have them in your audio library.

At the end of this page is an additional audio entitled The 5 Stages. This combines all of the practices, so that you learn to progressively do them together in a complete developmental sequence. It then focuses on the Master and Coupled points, and ends with a complete M&C practice, activating everything learned so far, that you can do in 5 minutes.

This can be practically applied in all kinds of situations where you do not have a lot of preparation time – going to a business appointment, an interview, meeting somebody for the first time, presenting a talk or speech, quietening down after a busy day… While obviously not going as deep as a full one-hour or more practice, this quick and easy sequence can be performed anywhere you can get 5 minutes alone to yourself – in a car, on a bench, a quiet corner… It is like turning the light up on a dimmer switch, or the volume on an amplifier. If you download it I think you will find it useful in all kinds of situations.

So I hope that you find the book and the audios to be helpful in learning about your energy system, and cultivating your Qi. I would be pleased to hear any comments you may have.

Good Wishes,

The complete Eight Extraordinary Meridians Training Program.
Click THE WHOLE PROGRAM to download the FREE printable document. This program is also available in a Greek pdf, here The Complete Eight Extraordinary Meridians Training Program - in Greek

This book consists of two parts:

Part I is an Introduction to Qigong, which is the condensed essence of three books that I wrote on the topic.

Part II is a ‘Practice Instruction Guide’ to a 9-month Training Program that I have developed and refined since 1983.

At the end is a review ( Book Review of Qigong Fever ) of a book called ‘Qigong Fever’, which tells what actually happened in China over the last 60 years – for those interested.

The whole book file is very small, 4.5 megabyte in size, but contains a 186 page document, with many illustrations, charts and diagrams, which take you step-by-step through these most valuable practices. And once you have it, it is yours, and you can easily send it to whomever you want.


THE 5 STAGES – Full Practice

This is a set of 5 practices which are the combined summary of the previous separate practices. They accumulate in using the Master and Couple Points, and finally using these points in a 5 minute version with your mind alone. This is like turning up the volume on an amplifier or a dimmer on a light switch – to turn you ON and UP !!!

Please note that this is a larger file and will take extra time to download.


This is the end of this page.

Practice Well !
