It may be pronounced as "Key" or "Chee". "Gong" refers to a discipline or mastery. In essence, it is the practice of mastering ones own internal energy in relation to ones environment.
WHAT IS KI?
Ki is a natural, vital, universal life energy that flows within, through, around and between all living things in the cosmos. It cannot be seen or touched. Ki flexes, bends and manipulates itself through and around all so that it is in constant balance. It is a transcendental energy that vitalizes human life.
WHY KI GONG AND MEDITATION?
Ki Gong training is simple and fun yet extremely effective in producing positive results. For thousands of years, it was the foundation and essence of the Oriental healing arts. Herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage therapy, tai chi and yoga utilize the same underlying principles as Ki Gong and have developed similar techniques in various cultures. Today, Western medicine has begun to research this ancient ki theory. It has become popular in medical centers that previously denied the existence of Ki. The practice of energy exercise is now common in healing centers throughout the Western world. Millions of people practice Ki Gong as a part of their daily routine for health preservation and maintenance.
