ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

So what are the 29 tools in the Smiling From The Heart book?

By Marcus Santer


In 2012 I published what I still consider to be my best book (so far).

Why do I think it’s the best?

Because it focuses exclusively on what I consider to be Qigong’s major gift to mankind.

And what’s that?

The ability to strengthen what I like to call your Emotional Immune System.

Here in the West we tend to only focus on the physical – which has many valuable benefits – but it does mean that when it comes to things like:

Well it’s a bit weak.

And looking back over 13 years of teaching Qigong I’ve had my major successes helping students to overcome the items in the list above.

Now then, Smiling From The Heart also got rave reviews from:

And the awesome Dr Roger Jahnke wrote the forward for it.

And I’ve a lot of respect for that guy, he opened my eyes to the difference between Imperial and Jeffersonian Qigong. Something that had a great healing impact on me.

Now I didn’t know it at the time, but Smiling From The Heart also turned out to be the prototype for my ZEN+ project.

Are you starting to see why I consider it to be my best book?

And yet, compared to my book Shaolin Chi Kung it’s as popular as a fart in a space suit.

I’ll never understand why.

But there you go.


It’s my birthday and like you I’ve got other things to be getting on with.
