Daoist Nei Gong for Women by Roni Edlund, Damo Mitchell, Sophie Johnson

Although the energetic anatomy of men and women is different, the ancient teachings of Nu Dan, a separate branch of internal alchemy for women, have been lost in the literature over the centuries and only survive through practice in the lineages.
This book takes a detailed look at female energetic anatomy, exploring how it is different from its male counterpart, and explains and describes the specific practices which support the unique strengths and challenges that the female energy system presents.
Previously wrapped in secrecy, the teachings in this book include qigong exercises that activate the energy of the uterus and an explanation of how menstruation and a connection to the cycles of the moon can be converted into a tool for Nei Gong development.

Interesting but a bit long! But it was great to understand how women can practice differently.

When I've read the summary I was curious about the differences... Of course. At the same time, I was asking myself if it may be the same way with all the practice. Like for Tai Chi or even if we could apply it for medidation as we all are different.
So I was having a lot of questions and was excited to start this journey.

Don't get me wrong, it was a great one to hear about the authors experiences and the way they have discovered a new way of practicing for women. I just thought that it has taken to much time to explain it and to go right to the point.
Of course, you need to learn and understand the background but it has put an heaviness in something that already need some concentration.

Interesting but with length.

I received this book in exchange of a fair and honest review.
