Item description for Ki in Daily Life by Koichi Tohei...

Technology today touches nearly every part of our lives. Through even more impressive development of machines, the process continues. Computers put men out of work; pushing a single button is enough to start a nuclear war.
Gradually, though, the world has begun to remember that it is man for whom the machines must work, and not the other way around. We recognize now that science, for all its achievements, has done little to help us understand ourselves or realize our potential.
There is no sense in waiting for science to do it for us. Each of us must now take it upon himself to understand his true nature and strength. The Chinese classic "Saikontan" says that we stand like beggars at the gate, forgetting the infinite power given us by the universe. Instead of shrinking from this potential, we should be thankful for it. we should strive to manifest it and help others to do the same.
The author regards his Four Basic Principles to Unify Mind and Body as having been given to him by the universe to spread the way of the universe. There have been many who have grasped unification of mind and body. Very few, however, could teach it. Fewer still could teach how to teach it. Those who learn the four basic principles as explained in this book have come to understand not only how to unify their own minds and bodies, but also how to teach it to others.
The author, founder of the Ki Society International, presents the philosophical groundwork and specific disciplines by which the individual may attune himself or herself with the hi-life energy of the universe and thrive in health and harmony, without fatigue or depression.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ki in Daily Life?

aikido student  Jun 13, 2007
Disseminates the elements of ki and aikido training and philosophy eloquently
Ki in daily life  Nov 3, 2006
Tohei is great martial artist and instuctor but this one put me to sleep. Dull
Too subjective to be actually useful  Jun 2, 2006
Here is the deep left field point of view.
Qi, Ki or whatever its name is such an abstraction, and its experience so subjective to even attempt to say anything about it is futile at best.
Tohei was a great instructor, but the branch of practice that "only studies that which fosters ki" is fallacious at best. EVERYTHING ought to develop and foster Ki, propery practiced.
So... there.
Interesting to read, but better and deeper works out there.
Interesting.  Oct 7, 2003
After years of Aikido training I reached the conclusion that Japanese cannot articulate their thoughts about KI simply because, in so doing, they would have to admit that all the KI "stuff" comes from China. Even in this book Tohei sensei talks about positive and negative energy because he eventually doesn't want to use the terms Yin and Yang. This having said, this book offers an interesting perspective about the body energy as it is envisioned by Japanese. Tohei sensei reportedly is a man with immense KI. He is the only Great Master who received the 10th dan from O Sensei M. Ueshiba.
In conclusion, if you want a Japanese perspective on KI, buy it. If you are a beginner and want to get started on your inner energy cultivation, I strongly suggest you to buy "Opening the Energy Gates of your Body" By Kumar Frantzis. If you are experienced in this field ... well you already know what you want to do.
Good start for beginners in ki-aikido  Aug 16, 2003
I found the book to be very helpful in understanding some of the principles and concepts in ki-aikido. As a beginning practitioner of this art form, I found this book to be an excellent guide as to the various techniques and also it has provided me a better understanding on some of the concept of ki-aikido in general. Definitely a must read for all beginning practitioners or would be practitioners!
