Qigong Master Projects his Ch'i Energy

Watch a Qigong master show Bill Moyers the power of ch'i, as he projects his energy through other people.

Quigong is a type of meditation and martial arts that has roots in early Taoism. "It aims at transforming and spiritualizing the life force (qi, chi'i) of the practitioner," according to one textbook.  Practitioners learn how to move the life force from the base of the spine up toward the head.
