'XinYi WuDao: Heart-Mind - The Dao of Martial Arts' by Master Zhongxian Wu 
Read an extract: http://www.singingdragon.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Pages-from-Wu-XinYi-WuDao.pdf
For more information and to buy: http://singingdragon.com/catalogue/9781848192065

Master Zhongxian Wu explores the way of martial arts through instruction of select practices from the legendary Dai Family Style XinYi Martial Arts School. This is the first account of Dai Family Style Xinyi available in the West. Traditional Chinese martial arts embody the richness and depth of Daoist philosophy, and their disciplined practice is an effective way to experience healing, internal alchemy and spiritual transformation.

XinYi martial arts, as with all traditional Chinese martial arts, build strength and stamina, and involve a process of inner cultivation that can bring practitioners closer to the Dao. The author examines and interprets the connections between Daoist numerology, the spirit of classical Chinese martial arts, and internal alchemy practices. With extensive reference to the classic texts, the book provides unique and considered guidance that will inspire and empower practitioners of all levels.

An authentic insight into the spiritual world of classical Chinese martial arts, this book is essential reading for practitioners of martial arts, NeiDan (internal alchemy), XinYi, Xingyi Quan, Taiji Quan, Bagua Zhang, Qigong and Chinese medicine, as well as anyone interested in traditional Chinese culture.

The Spark in the Machine: How the Science of Acupuncture Explains the Mysteries of Western Medicine, by Dr Daniel Keown

Order the book here: http://singingdragon.com/catalogue/9781848191969

This is medicine as you have never read it before – cloning sheep with Qi, children regrowing fingers, and anatomical evidence for true love. Dr Daniel Keown's accessible, funny and truly original book shows how Western medicine proves the ancient Chinese were right, and how Chinese medicine explains the mysteries of the body that Western medicine largely ignores. 

'I started reading this book and thought “wow!” – I couldn't put it down! ... Everyone from the general public to Western and Eastern medical practitioners should read this book.'

— Angela Hicks, Joint Principal of the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine

'One simply can’t do #Qigong .  The thing that we are looking for, the experience of Qi flow, the “Qigong State” if you will, is not something that can be acquired by doing. It is better found or experienced by undoing...'

Chair yoga is a revolutionary concept designed to make the numerous benefits of classical yoga available to a wider range of physical abilities. This step-by-step program can be practiced by virtually anyone, anywhere, in any chair, to stimulate physical and mental well-being.

The DVD's two 40-minute sequences contain easy-to-master exercises that have been specially developed for people without the range of movement necessary for mat work. The exercises provide a gentle approach, whilst still retaining the numerous physical and mental benefits of classical yoga. The clear voiceover instructions and visual onscreen demonstrations guide the viewer through the routines, which can be carried out safely without any previous knowledge or yoga expertise.

This DVD can be used alone or in groups and will be popular with anyone wanting to experience the health benefits of an easy, versatile form of yoga, particularly older people, people rehabilitating from illness or injury and those with physical disabilities, as well as the professionals who support them.

Please note: image quality on the DVD is considerably higher than online.
