Feeling Ki Energy
What is Ki energy?
The Ki energy system, comprised of meridians and chakras, is inherent in the wisdom of many older cultures.
It has been practically unknown to most in the modern day, especially in the West.
Your instructor will refer to it as Ki, or just 'energy'.
Ki is not something you can see, or touch, or even prove that it exists. However, you will be able to feel it with practice.
Ki serves as a bridge between body and mind, and will help you feel how your mind's condition affects your physical health. By awakening the Ki energy in your body, you will become more aware of how keep yourself healthy, and how to communicate with your inner self and how to better relate to others.

Brain Management is a term coined by Ilchi Lee to express the art of managing your brain, which includes managing every thought, emotion, and movement, to create what you want in your life.
