Description - The Ultimate Guide to Yin Yang: An Illustrated Exploration of the Chinese Concept of Opposites by Antony Cummins
The first book to fully explore and explain the concept of yinyang, breaking it down in easy-to-follow terms for all those interested in Daoism, alternative medicine, martial arts and other Eastern fields of study. Illustrated with striking red/black graphics that make the concepts more accessible.
The concept of yinyang can be found in some of the oldest writing in the world. It is fundamental to Chinese thought and the route to understanding most Chinese practices, from Traditional Chinese Medicine to Daoism and feng shui. It also offers us ways of enhancing our own lives, establishing greater balance not only in our own environment but also in the wider world if we can work with other people to follow nature's flow.
The central question of the book is "What is yinyang?" Step by step, with plenty of helpful illustrations and graphics, it explores the history and changing uses of yinyang - not forgetting the pronunciation and spelling (why yinyang is better than yin yang). The book also makes suggestions for working with yinyang, from observing the landscape to get a sense of the ebb and flow of energy through the world, to studying the patterns of nature in order to take what you need but not too much, to approaching sex as a cosmic ritual. After reading this book, readers will understand how to position themselves so that yinyang fills their lives with abundance - how to be in the right place at the right time.
