Abstract:This article examines some African (specifically Zulu), Indian and Chinese patterns of energy healing in order to demonstrate some similarities. All these types of helaing accept, as a given, the existence of a universal energy to which everyone has access. All extol a form of healing energy and some form of conscious breathwork, with emphasis on ancestors, meditation and movement in African, Indian and Chinese healing patterns respectively. Illness is viewed as a disruption or stagnation of energy patterns which need continual channelling, mobilization, balancing and harmonization to achieve optimal health. Bibliogr., sum.
