Anxiety is an age-old problem. It exists in all cultures, and each has its own methods for treating it. For readers who suffer from anxiety but have found little relief from modern western treatments, the ancient practice of qigong—which can be understood as the cultivation of internal energy—may offer relief. In The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety, world-renowned and respected qigong master Kam Chuen Lam presents his first workbook for overcoming anxiety problems utilizing traditional Chinese energy-focusing exercises. By following these step-by-step exercises, readers will learn to transform feelings of anxiety into resilience and inner strength. The workbook also contains helpful illustrations.

When I returned the next time, he said to me, “Now you will need to start all over again at the very beginning.” In this way, I became his devoted student. Teaching me was not a
