Most monasteries of Danasia and parts beyond adhere to some form of Kidan.
Historically Kidan, along with Waidan, were joined aspects of alchemical philosophy. While Waidan focuses more on shaping the elements of nature, Kidan looks inward, shaping the forces that make up a person. Practitioners of this philosophy work to balance their inner thoughts and work to improve themselves through arduous training and mental discipline. The Kidan belief system is the main source of power for most Monks and Mystics, although there are those who worship individual gods or other faiths.
The Kidan faith has no unified structure or official leaders, but individual people may look to travelling Monks, Mystics, or the heads of monasteries, called a Pahang as spiritual examples.
