I have already reviewed here Damo’s previous book Daoist Nei Gong - The Philosophical
Art of Change which was published in 2011 and was one of the few books really explaining
the whole process of nei gong in understandable language. The present book is a much
expanded and more thorough explanation of the nei gong process. The previous book
had 240 pages whereas this one has 568 pages which is more than double the size.
Damo has also covered the alchemical firing process of nei dan in his other excellent
book - White Moon on the Mountain Peak, which is also well worth reading.
I really don’t know of anyone else who has written about the nei gong process in
the depth and detail in which Damo has. He clearly writes from a depth of experience
in the nei gong tradition. He has a unique ability to explain nei gong in a clear
and logical way that anyone can understand if prepared to make the effort. The diagrams
in the books are especially helpful in making concepts clear.
For anyone practising or wanting to practise nei gong, this book is highly recommended.
I would say that his descriptions are not necessarily true of all nei gong systems.
This volume is truly a mine of valuable information. I can’t wait for Damo’s next
