THERE is presently a wave of new energy spreading across the world, and it all started in Japan. It’s called Hado.
While qi is the life-force of Chinese medicine and philosophy, Hado is a similar healing life-force, but it also has transformative powers beyond the physical. It is said to be able to make jewellery sparkle, and even change the taste of water and foods. It is claimed that if enough Hado is sent to a painting, the colours of the painting become more vivid and embossed – literally “three-dimensional”.
