Peretti, founder of the (secular) traditional School Bai Qi Gong Yuan carried out a reconstruction, through the conference entitled Practices of Body Wisdom, about the historical context and the mentality of the Greek, Chinese, and Semitic people in the search for unity. Man experiences an internal conflict because of the fragmentation of his existence (divided between the body and the mind), while his intention is to find unity.

Qi Gong is one of the methods by which we can experience it. For the Chinese, there is nothing outside of the Tao.
