segment. When Moyers and Eisenberg went to clinics or parks and spoke to
qigong masters, American audiences saw demonstrations and heard first-hand

By Barbara Gastel ONCE when he was living in China, David Eisenberg relates, "

Yuanchang (ca. 1615-after 1646) of the late Ming pointed out in his commentary
on Marvelous Encounters: Qi has had wonderful encounters with a hundred [
women].

Chinese philosophy qi is intangible, dynamic, and yet forms the myriad of things
in the world. This concept of something intangible as the foundation of reality may
appear to many Westerners incomprehensible. Fortunately, modern physics has
provided a ...
