Books on Wild Goose Qigong

 

Here is my selection of books on Wild Goose Qigong. There aren’t many in English.

Chi Kung: Taoist Secrets of Fitness and Longevity by Wen-Mei Yu

 

Unique Publications, 1998

ISBN: 0865681651

 

This book covers the Wild Goose Qigong Basic Training (First 64 Movements) or Wild Goose Qigong 1 as it is also known. I would recommend this as the best introductory books to Wild Goose Qigong. It has a good introduction to qigong including a description of the meridians and the acupoints relevant to this form. Each movement has a clear description of the move and also a section called “Chi Essentials” where the effect of the movement on qi circulation is given. It’s also a bargain in the Used and New section on Amazon.co.uk.

Wild Goose Qigong by Yang Meijun

 

China Science and Technology Press, Beijing, 1991

ISBN: 7-5046-0127-6

 

This is unavailable at Amazon but you may find it on Ebay non occasion. I list it here because it is the only work of Yang Meijun in English which gives a complete description of the Wild Goose Qigong Basic Training (First and Second 64 Movements), also known as Wild Goose Qigong 1 and 2. The descriptions are accompanied by line drawings which are far from ideal, especially since there is a Chinese book with pictures of Yang Meijun doing the forms.

 

It also has a chapter on how to master the two forms which contains a lot of useful tips on the principles of how to practise.

 

There is a section on the meridians and acupoints and how Wild Goose Qigong affects them. The last section gives some case studies of  practitioners recovering from illness.

 

 

Dayan Qigong by Yang Meijun

 

Peace Book Co Ltd., Hong Kong, 1986

ISBN: 962-7176-07-9

 

This book is very similar to the previous one but only covers the First 64 Movements and has pictures of a young woman to illustrate the form. It only has one illustration of some acupoints and no information on meridians. It does have a footwork pattern to illustrate exactly how the feet move and whether toes or heel is up.

 

If you can get a copy of the previous work in preference to this.

 

 

 

Wild Goose Qigong: 1st 64 Movements by Michael Tse

 

Tse Qigong Centre, Altrincham, 2001

ISBN-10: 1903443016

ISBN-13: 978-1903443019

 

This book has the best layout for the form. The description for each drawing is immediately below it. Each new movement starts on a fresh page. Relevant acupoints are shown in an outer margin.  

 

It has interesting stories about Yang Meijun and the experiences of some of Michael’s students.

 

Wild Goose Qigong: 2nd 64 Movements Part 1 by Michael Tse

 

Tse Qigong Centre, Altrincham, 2004

ISBN-10: 1903443032

ISBN-13: 978-1903443032

 

Michael Tse takes two volumes to describe the Second 64 Movements. In this volume  69 pages are on the form out of 178 pages. The rest consists of such topics as Sky Eye, Dao An (one of the Wild Goose Qigong Masters), qigong and cancer, longevity and enlightenment.

 

The layout of the form description follows the same clear  style as for the First 64 Movements which is the book’s greatest merit.

 

 

Wild Goose Qigong: 2nd 64 Movements Part 2 by Michael Tse

 

Tse Qigong Centre, Altrincham, 2005

ISBN-10: 1903443032

ISBN-13: 978-1903443032

 

This volume continues where the previous volume finished as far as the form is concerned and follows the same clear style.

 

Again there is much additional material which reflects largely Michael’s own personal views rather than the Wild Goose Qigong lineage.

 

Wild Goose Qigong: Natural Movement for Healthy Living

by Hong-Chao Zhang

 

YMAA Publication Center, Boston, 2000

ISBN: 1886969787

 

I only list this particular book to recommend that you don’t buy it. His form has a more martial look than the form I have been taught. Having seen the present lineage holder doing the form, it appeared much closer to the pictures of the first book listed on this page.
