Ron Davis's nutritional guidance and emphasis on whole simple foods is sound and timeless. Qigong through the Seasons adds a new dimension to the concept of eating seasonally as a way to support the flow of our internal energy by mimicking the circulation of qi in the natural world. This is an excellent resource with clear instructions for health practitioners, nutrition professionals and any individuals wanting to enhance their health.

Richard Bertschinger, acupuncturist and author of several books including Everyday Qigong Practice and Essential Texts in Chinese Medicine: The Single Idea in the Mind of the Yellow Emperor
Long before I had read any Chinese text or had even heard the word 'dao', I was searching for a book like this. With clear diagrams and simple, precise language, it illustrates how to harmonise our bodies and souls with the passing of the seasons using movement, self-tapping, diet and breathing, all tied in with gentle visualisations in the Chinese tradition. The transformative power of such practice is now well attested, and Ronald Davis, imbued as he is with many, many years practice, comes over as a consummate teacher. How much wiser to ensure, than insure our health! This book is a timely addition to Singing Dragon's growing library of accessible qigong manuals. The merit of this text is its clear and gentle coaxing - giving us no excuse not to get down to it right away!
