This book has been adapted and edited from three seminars given in London over a period of two years. It begins with a section on hun and po, moves on to jing shen, and concludes with yi and zhi. Each section examines the characters for each term, followed by examples of their usage in the classical philosophical texts, and concludes with a selection from the medical texts of the Huangdi Neijing, Suwen and Lingshu.
Rochat de la Vallée has brought her intimate knowledge of both the medical and philosophical texts of this period to bear in presenting her deep understanding and insight to this fascinating and often misunderstood subject. This text establishes a firm grounding for thoughtful discussion, and as well as provides inspiration for individual spiritual cultivation.
