Jori-ki and Tari-ki



"Energy" Chinese = chi Japanese = ki

Jori-ki is self-power, power we develop through our own efforts. Jori-ki we generate ourselves through our actions, our diet, our attitude and, especially, our daily practice.


Tari-ki is other-power, power we get from the efforts and charisma of others.

Tari-ki is what we soak up from being around people, places and situations.


It is vital for each of us to take responsibility by showing up with a store of jori-ki as well as with a receptivity to tari-ki.
