I've been doing a little research into traditional Eastern medicine, and I came across a book by Elisa Rossi called Shen.  It talks about ki, dao, and gingyu, so I figured someone here had already read it. I plan on getting it, but I wanted to ask if anyone else had heard of it.

It's one of the 3 treasures, Chi, Jing and Shen. Shen is the highest most subtle and refined version of the energy, with Jing being the most dense manifestation. Shen is utilized for spiritual activity such as meditation and various factors of enlightenment and spiritual transcendence (samadhi etc).

Many qigong practitioners work to refine their chi into shen so that they may attain spiritual growth and enlightenment.

He was asking specifically about a book, though.
