Yoga, tai chi, healing touch, reiki - all of these practices are rooted in a belief system espousing that God is an impersonal universal life force accessible through a constellation of techniques which, when encountered, will bring wholeness, health, balance, well-being, and enlightenment.
Is this belief compatible with Christianity? Do healing and wholeness come from such practices? What is the force driving these techniques? Our guest, a past student and practitioner of the eastern healing arts, answers these questions for us.
