In the 1980s Harvard doctor, David Eisenberg, MD, spent years in Beijing learning about qi, the life force, so much a part of Chinese medicine, martial arts, and culture. In his book, ENCOUNTERS WITH QI, he tells of his studies at a hospital using medical qigong and of his meetings with qi experts, demonstrating incredible powers. During his studies, Eisenberg was interviewed for a Bill Moyers PBS television series, 
HEALING AND THE MIND
as they visited hospital qi treatment facility and a Tai Chi master.
