“I really enjoyed reading about standing meditation from your book. I suffered two strokes, however Tai Chi and Qigong have really helped me. I feel now that I have learned a lot from you.”


“The most important and basic stance in all martial arts is Zhan Zhuang. Mastering this item is to heal your body and mind. It is also the entrance portal to the realms of Power… The author explains the hermetic texts in simple language according his personal experience. Buy the book. Study hard. Work hard, day after day…” 



“I have an extensive background in Qigong as well as the Alexander Technique, and Standing (zhan zhuang) is my preferred practice. It is a subtle practice, involving as it does just standing there; hence it is not easy to grasp or to write about. However it is, as is often claimed, the 64 million dollar secret behind martial and healing accomplishment. Mark Cohen clearly gets it, very much knows what he is talking about, and does a very good job of conveying it. This involves explaining very specific aspects of alignment and mental attitude. There are few books that do this practice justice…”


“The Encyclopedia of Zhan Zhuang would be a good title. This book is the most comprehensive, detailed book on this form of Qi Gong that I’ve seen. It’s a highly recommended addition to your library if you practice Zhan Zhuang or are considering it. Hand positions, feet positions, weight distributions, it’s all covered, with very good explanations and good photos… this book already a classic.”
