To be guided means to combine the inhalation and exhalation of breathing methods, massage, and exercise of the limbs with one’s will. We hope to achieve the purposes of nurturing the body and longevity through “guiding the chi and make it peaceful, while guiding the body and make it soft.” Its special features are presented with the stretching and bending, bending upward and downward of the body, which is accompanied, however, by the inhalation and exhalation of the breathing method. That is why “chi-touring” and “guiding art” are often mentioned together. To describe it in modern terms, the former can be called “the kung in the movement” and the latter, “the kung in the stillness.” The art of guiding the chi-touring in Taoism enjoys a long history. Ever since the ancient Chin Dynasty, famous classics like the “LaoTzu,” “Chuang Tzu,” and the “Commemoration for Chi-Touring” in the Era of Warring States, there are descriptions on and off of the inhalation and exhalation of breathing methods and the guiding of the chi circulation. The recently recovered ancient scrolls-“Graph of Chi Guiding” and the “Book of Guidance” by Chang, Chia-Shang from the Han tombs at Mawangduei are full of detailed descriptions in pictures and literature. After the East Han Dynasty, the guiding art of the chi-touring had been incorporated into part of the Taoist system of medical art practice which then became an important method for Taoist cultivation of physical and mental capabilities and the prevention of illnesses. It has since then been esteemed highly by life-nurturing specialists throughout history. Of all the relevant information found, the part which deals with chi kung in the entire Taoist collection of literature has been described in the finest details. People from the ancient China believed that the joints of limbs on human body have to be maintained and strengthened by constant movement. Whether the circulation system and the defense system of the human body can be in peace with one another depends only on the fully and complete circulation of chi. They found that the guiding art of chi-touring could “manage the temperament and make adjustment to their flowing orders and directions while examining the ying / yang in nature against the prescriptions, soothing the joints and softening the tendons to make peaceful and rhythmic the heart.” Not only it can “reverse all the illnesses that are to come,” it could also “cure the already contracted severe diseases.” Therefore, with long-term exploration and practice, a good variety of methods and technologies have been developed, among which, there are the breath-taking, breath controlling, breath adjustment, breath holding, fetal breathing, etc. All these developed into a unique life-nurturing method in Chinese tradition that lays special emphasis on breathing for the purposes of strengthening the body and cures illnesses. In this paper, we attempt to induct, analyze and manage the discourses found in traditional Taoism and Taoist religion regarding “the guiding art of chi-touring;” and complemented it with my personal practical experiences and the modern needs in order to further explore and verify on the theories of it. We hope the nature and significance of “the guiding art of chi-touring” can be more widely and profoundly understood through this research.
