Six Healing Sounds is an excellent introduction to the practice of Qigong (pronounced “chee-gung”) which teaches breathing techniques to achieve calmness and better health.  Lisa and Ted are brother and sister. Like all kids they feel all kinds of emotions during different situations. Lisa gets mad at Ted. Ted is worried about his new school. Lisa is jealous of Ted’s birthday presents. Ted can’t fall asleep, and so on. In each situation children learn what body organ is affected by the negative emotion. Simple exercises and healing sounds show children how to change the way they feel. One of the most powerful things you can teach anyone – especially children – is how to control their feelings and develop a positive attitude. This book is an excellent tool for teachers and caregivers as a foundation for fun with role playing.
