“THE SHIELD & THE EIGHT IMMORTALS” is a super-fiction story about the author’s conversations with a mythical man, Lao Tzu (also known as Lu), one of the legendary eight immortals in The Chinese Classics. In this second book by Ms. Wiley, her mentor in the story initiates her into ancient knowledge of the natural, yet secret, Bio-electromagnetic energy of the body—an energy that unifies all living beings throughout the world.
When you know the laws of nature and glean its true secrets, the book explains, then you come to understand that nature is the ultimate virtuous teacher of the chi and cannot be corrupted by misuse of power — for nature laughs last! This book is a true account of the author’s understanding of Tai Chi; that she practiced for many years.
