What others have said about David Twicken's
Eight Extraordinary Channels
"In the Daoist tradition, cultivation practices centered around the Eight Extraordinary Meridians provide one of the pathways toward enlightenment or immortality.
The ancestral founder master of QuanZhenNanZong (the Southern Complete Reality School), Zhang Ziyang, stated that those who are able to open the eight extraordinary meridians will obtain the Dao.
I recommend David Twicken's
Eight Extraordinary Channels to Chinese medicine and Qigong practitioners interested in working with the physical and spiritual layers through these extraordinary meridians."
illuminates the missing link between Chinese medicine and Taoist spiritual practice, making it essential reading for both healers and adepts.
