Book Review: The Body, Self-Cultivation, and Ki-Energy [Book Review]
|Abstract||The primary project involves an analysis of the phenomenon described as Ki-energy. This concept is found in some form or another and is called by a variety of names in a number of traditional yogic and medical technologies. Counterparts to Ki from other cultural traditions would be, for example: qi from the Chinese tradition; prana from the Indian traditions; nefesh or ruach from the Hebrew traditions; and so on. Phenomenologically, this life force accounts for the activity and "living-ness" of living things. The attempt to conserve and cultivate this life force informs many yogic systems|
