Movements with Breathing Patterns

The Chi-generating Movements of The Kath State, The Energy of Inner Fire presents five distinct movements to activate vital energy in the body, referred to as Kath Energy™ or chi, using a specific breathing technique.

Generate Kath Energy

These Kath State movements generate Kath or vital energy (chi) in your body. When this energy is consciously activated and distributed throughout the organism, it is the basis of a balanced and healthy life as recognized in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine.

A Quiet Mind

Stability, physical vitality, happiness, and the higher state of a quiet mind are the results of practicing the Kath State Movements. The book provides easy–to–follow instructions and illustrations for practicing five Kath–awakening exercises.

Energy of Inner Fire

By unifying the body and mind with a specific breathing technique, we obtain a reversal of the normal current of life energy. The usual direction of the current of life dissipates energy externally. By employing this breathing technique the current is reversed, providing a revitalization of all the organs, especially the brain. Your body becomes energized with a distinct pulsation in your hands and your feet as your mind becomes quiet. This is the Kath State.

"The Kath State will be attained in the Quietude of Mind and the revitalized energy of the body."
