Energetic air (ions) are consumed by air contaminants, neutralized by them. To increase the level of energetic air, first the air must be cleaned, and house plants can help do this. See article by Joseph Mercola, MD. , NASA list via Wikipedia , and “12 Plants to Clean Home Air”.
The Marathon Monks of Mt. Hiei They run 50 miles a day, every day, for 100 days! (or for a select few: The older tradition is 100 miles a day) . Very minimal diet. Years of meditation are practiced after the ultra long distance running. This is the most extreme physical and mental disciplines that I have heard about.

Endurance is a very inspirational movie about an Olympic long distance runner. He ia from a remote African Village and first heard of the Olympics on the radio. He began running on his own, and eventually won First Place Gold in the Olympics!
My home page link to “Photo Galleries” takes you to a page of instructions for the Slide Shows (and Galleries). I have moved the photos from Gallery One and Two of the home page to this Photo Album, and also, in their original form, to the Archive (see below)
In the Archive you will find “Ions Gallery One” and “Ions Gallery Two” listed next to Energetic Air. These are the orignal Photo Galleries that were refered to on the home page.
I love gardening and enjoy the vibrancy and vitality that glows in the garden. I think that most people feel more relaxed and “in tune” while gardening. The backyard garden is a natural luminous place that you can create, and then it nurtures you with both food and radiant vitality. I believe the plants have rapport with us and grow faster and healthier when we love them, care and sing to them (The Secret Life of Plants). For millenia shamans have successfully used the power of family ceremony – via song and prayer, to increase the harvest (and influence the local weather).
The legendary “Garden of Eden” suggests a powerful place when plants grew better, faster, healthier and in great abundance. I have found many natural luminous places where the vegetation is healthy and prolific. In proximity to luminous places various natural powers can become very focused in ways beneficial to life, for plants and people.
