Qi Dao: The Art of Being in the Flow is (to my knowledge) the first English book on the obscure Tibetan art of Shamanic Qigong, or trul khor. Written by Lama Somananda Tantrapa, an ordained Buddhist monk and longtime martial artist, Being in the Flow introduces the basics of this unique brand of Tibetan Yoga. Sadly, kinesthesia is not a part of many modern people’s vocabulary. The sense of movement is the only way to experience first-hand the relationship between space and time.

So basic info on alignment and grounded movement sure. Still scratching my head regarding how it is shamanic... perhaps channeling ancestors in a Shinto type of way or calling in some lineage via doing the form IDK... perhaps there is something I am missing but it is not in any direct way IMHO shamanic. Very basic qigong as far as I can tell... I really wanted to like this DVD...one watching was enough too bad...

Lama Tantrapa's "The Art of Being in the Flow," as expressed by his Qi Dao from Tibetan Qigong, and which he refers to as the "Harmonious Culture Movement," the student is awakened to the Body-Mind-Spirit connection and how they behave as unified force within the energy flow of movement.
The flow of the movements are executed to defend the integrity of one's space from violation.
The self realization manifested by the flowing positions reach a spiritual plane parallel to meditation, and in the case of Qi Dao, a wonderful & simultaneous physical payoff; but is more than an endorphin elevation: One is fully in a graceful presence
Lama Tantrapa's book is a well-spring of discovery and potential of "Being." Simple, yet elegant writing explores the deeper truths of our spiritual nature.
The DVD is an essential companion, as it concentrates on how to perform the movements necessary for success. In addition, the DVD has an entire part on body conditioning for maximum performance. You'll want to enlist a partner for the best results.

Qi Dao, taught by the Qigong Master Lama Tantrapa, is a complete system for a reader (or watcher if you have the DVD) to enhance their energy awareness, kinesthetic awareness, and overall well being. When taken at face value, the physical instruction will strengthen your body, expand your range of motion, increase coordination and uplift your wellbeing. When taken at FULL value, Qi Dao is a system that will increase your vitality and expand awareness both of yourself and of the world around you - forever .

The movements are unique in that they are formless. Constant attention is given to stabilization, alignment, and the holding patterns that can arise if no attention is given to posture. Also, much attention is given to the awareness of energy as it relates to how you hold yourself and the movements that allow you to direct energy in a given direction.

The book is very well written and nicely organized. There are pictures showing the postures and movements (the DVD is a must in order to see the appropriate speed at which to practice and to grasp the finer details that Lama Tantrapa gives throughout his presentation). The metaphysical aspects of Qi Dao are explained in simple language and a reader can start implementing the instruction immediately - such as the differentiation between attention and intention.

Both people of great physical ability, and those with limited abilities will find Qi Dao valuable. The movements are generalized and allow you to focus on movement awareness (kinesthetic), and the increase and flow of energy throughout your body. I, like many others, have a tendency to want to be perfect in my replication of a particular movement or instruction. Qi Dao is unique in it's instruction as it doesn't provoke our inner perfectionist. You'll feel content in focusing on the 'feeling' that the movement gives you instead of whether or not you're moving in exact replication of what is demonstrated - as is many times the case with Tai Chi and other forms of Qigong.

I'm fairly versed in the works of Mantak Chi, BK Frantzis, Janke - and I've read this book many times over, and come back to it for it's nuggets of inspiration and clarity. I highly recommend this read to anyone, at any level of ability. I'm grateful that a 27th generation lineage holder took the time to distill the foundational principals of his art into a delightful read that will give just about anyone a higher level of self actualization, authenticity, and general wellbeing in their lives.

The Art of Being in the Flow tries to pass itself off as something secretive and different or better yet Chi Gong. I bought this book and the Dvd with the understanding you would learn a somewhat formless form. Deep spiritual and Physical healing. In other words you would create your own way of moving in the flow by learning these moves.
After completing the book and Dvd I found this to be very misleading. The content is good enough, you can learn about proper alignment. You can learn some descent strikes. But there is nothing new here whatsoever. And it certainly doesn't teach you how to create your own flow. It's okay but not nearly worth the praises it has received. You want proper alignment or flow then read some works by Tai Chi masters Ben Lo , William CC Chen or the Professor himself Cheng Man Ching.

I thoroughly recommend Lama Tantrapa's book, Qi Dao - Tibetan Shamanic Qigong. It is well written, systematically laid out and enables anyone from absolute beginner to expert to follow the principles of Lama's Qi Dao. One way to explain the meaning of Qi Dao can be The Way of the Uniting with the Universe's Energy.

The benefits of achieving this union are innumerable. Most of us are already much too familiar with the problems associated with remaining cut off from ourselves and the Dao. The path to Enlightenment is not really complicated. It really can't be. Nature is simple. It always does what it needs to do without any thought process. It naturally flows just as it should. In fact, it is the complications we make in our lives that separate us from Qi Dao. The flow of our lives should be as easy as the flow of Nature. We need to wake up!

In my humble opinion, no one system which is capable of being explained to us mortals will have all of the answers. However, some systems will harmonize or resonate with you more than others. Qi Dao follows the Principles which will resonate with many who are looking for a Way to BE more natural. It has something for everyone; and, no one who reads this book will walk away without a new insight into themselves and the workings of the Dao! That alone makes it worth reading.
