Max Sculley’s definitive critique of Yoga, Tai Chi and Reiki comes with a timely warning that despite these practices’ surface appeal for helping fitness, relaxation and health, they are closely linked to underlying Eastern philosophies that are incompatible with Christianity.

Vatican documents, including one authored by the present Pope when he was Cardinal Ratzinger, have highlighted the spiritual dangers associated with methods of meditation associated with Eastern religions.

Despite these warnings Yoga, Tai Chi and Reiki continue to be promoted in parishes, schools and religious orders.

Max Sculley’s detailed and well documented analysis of Yoga, Tai Chi and Reika includes gripping personal stories that bring home the dark side of these practices.

This book needs to be widely circulated among teachers, clergy and religious.

“This book, Yoga, Tai Chi & Reiki, by Br Max Sculley, provides an invaluable insight into the background to these practices. His research reveals the underlying ‘philosophies’ or world views that have given rise to these techniques. He shows clearly that using the techniques leads many into a new spiritual world. These practices and techniques cannot be viewed as only being of benefit at the physical and emotional levels. Of their very nature they draw a person into the spiritual realm. The techniques rely not only on physical movement but engage a person in entering into an altered state of consciousness. Their powers derive from engagement with the spiritual world. Persons utilising the practices will be invited to engage their minds with the techniques in order for them to have any real benefit. This is where the danger lies.”

- Bishop Julian Porteous, From the Foreword

Brother Max Sculley is a De La Salle brother based in Brisbane.
