Ba Gua Nei Gong Volume 5: Tian Gan Heavenly Stem Nei Gong

by Tom Bisio

is now available!

Ba Gua Nei Gong Volume 5 focuses on the Tian Gan Heavenly Stem Nei Gong. This unique set of sixteen exercises is the key to developing Ba Gua Zhang’s spiraling torsional power, sometimes referred to as “Silk Reeling Energy.”  These exercises train the correct internal mechanics for many of Ba Gua Zhang’s martial actions.


In practicing Tian Gan Nei Gong, the spiraling and turning actions of the body and Central Channel, combined with the movements of the arms and legs, stimulate and open the meridians, while simultaneously “wringing out” the spine and its surrounding structures. This helps maintain the health of the spine, the brain and the nervous system.

Tian Gan Nei Gong can be an important adjunctive practice method for various types of Daoist meditation, and a useful pre-requisite to Micro-Cosmic Orbit meditation.

This book also includes a detailed discussion of Ba Gua Spinal Meditation, a unique training method that enables one to sense the subtle internal movements of the spine, and a natural compliment to the Tian Gan Exercises.

Ba Gua Nei Gong Volume 5 features clearly written descriptions of all 16 exercises and over 400 photographs and diagrams illustrating details of the various movements.

A must have for students of Ba Gua Zhang,
NYIA-IAI students and anyone interested in Nei Gong,
Qi Gong, Ba Gua Zhang and the internal arts!
