Abstract: This article put forward a novel idea that the TCM term of qi transformation, based on its original meaning and interpretation in Neijing, whose subject referred to qi transformation of heaven and earth, was a vital academic scope extended from the understanding of human body by natural philosophy of qi-monism theory. The connotation of qi transformation in Neijing was reflected in two aspects: qi transformation of heaven and earth generating everything in the world, qi transformation of heaven and earth involving qi transformation of life. Qi transformation is characterized by sequence, direction and internal homeostasis, which plays an important role in guiding TCM clinical practices.

Key words: qi transformation, Neijing, qi transformation of heaven and earth, connotation, characteristics
