THE DYNAMICS OF STANDING STILL is a fascinating and very convincing introduction to Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung. Beautifully illustrated and easy to understand, this book explains why standing still is at the core of Chi Kung and various Chinese martial arts.
Between wanting to do and not yet doing, between ‘Get Set!’ and ‘Go!’, there is a no man’s land with a high energetic charge. This capacitated potential is the focal point of Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung, the ancient art of charging your batteries.
It seems unconventional to stand still in order to improve your condition. Nevertheless, many practitioners in the past and present have found out through their own experience, that this practice was very effective in improving their health.
“With the expanding but still limited awareness of Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung in the west Peter den Dekker’s time and effort for this art have contributed much towards bridging the gap between east and west. His long contact with Chinese culture across the years has allowed him to re-tell many of the finer points of Zhan Zhuang in a more western style. I am pleased that Peter has produced this book. I wish it a great success.”
