Most people tend to idealize artists, writers, and others of the “creative class” as uniquely gifted. But the capacity to create is part of being human–whether that means writing, making art, cooking, gardening, sewing, dancing, acting, singing, or virtually any activity. In Chi and Creativity, Kaleo Ching and Elise Dirlam Ching show readers how to use a wide range of strategies to harness the energy of chi to uncover, and cultivate, that often elusive inner artist.Based on their popular workshops, the authors offer an integrative process to generate the joy, wonder, and sense of well-being necessary for artistic self-expression. Specific exercises draw on everything from acupressure and breathing techniques to Chi Kung movement and meditation. Through Chi Awareness, the body, mind, emotions, and spirit come into greater harmony. Through guided imagery, they dialogue. Through journaling, they speak. Through art, they join in creative expression of the inner discoveries along the path to greater balance and integration. Chi and Creativity is the authors’ way of sharing this magical transformative process and can be used by anyone who wants to add fuel to their creative fires.

Carmen Nguyen never knew her father, Langston Blue, an army sergeant presumably killed in Vietnam. Enlisting the help of Denver's CJ Floyd, a streetwise African American bail bondsman and Vietnam vet, and Flora Jean Benson, CJ's new partner, Carmen charts a course to find her father—a complex, dangerous course that untangles a decades-old mystery involving the disappearance of Amerasian war babies, illegal U.S. paramilitary operations, yellow journalism, and governmental double crosses. In the process of resurrecting and reconstructing her father's past, Carmen, CJ, and Flora Jean find themselves facing a treacherous, life-threatening assignment as they follow a trail of double deals, blueprints for genetic cleansing, Vietnamese racism, political corruption, and power grabs that leads all the way to the halls of the U.S. Senate.
