This is one of my favorite chapters of the entire book. Maybe because this ki lecture, which occurred on the island of Kauai, really was clear and to the point.

You may still leave a question or comment on any of the previous podcasts/transcripts or a question for the upcoming discussion on Ch. 9 held on October 30th in the comment section.
