Editorial Reviews

Bookpapers
Beautifully designed and illustrated intro to the (re)emerging field of energetic design. New findings on the widespread use of the techniques in Egyptian, Mayan, Asian, Native American and European cultures.
Midwest Book Review
Of immense practical interest to students of alternative medicine, metaphysical spirituality, feng-shui, architecture, and a New Age approach to body, mind and spirit.
Banyen Books
So simple yet profound it carries the force of revelation. All the passion and depth that this maturing topic demands. A condensed guide for those ready to take energetics into their homes and communities.
Internet Bookwatch
A companion volume to Tom Bender's superb Silence, Song & Shadows, his Building With The Breath Of Life focuses on providing the reader with a detailed historical, conceptual, and "how to" approach to working with chi energy in the architecture of our offices, homes, and other buildings. Bender writes knowledgeably about theoretical concepts, energetic design tools, exercises for learning to work with chi, analysis of buildings and communities from an energetic perspective, and more. Numerous examples are employed offering the reader an applied clarity to the concepts and issues discussed. Building With The Breath Of Life will prove of immense and practical interest to students of alternative medicine, metaphysical spirituality, feng-shui, architecture, and a New Age approach to body, mind and spirit.
MACROMedia
I'm really impressed . . . not only beautiful . . . but fastidiously researched and well annotated. A great resource for my clients interested in subtle energies.
