Yin & Yang
Understanding the Chinese Philosophy of Opposites and How to Apply It to your Everyday LifeUnknown - 1998
Most people are familiar with the black and white circular symbol of yin and yang but few know much about its actual meaning. With the increasing interest in Chinese philosophy and traditional Chinese medicine (for example acupuncture) there is a need to know more about the concept that is central to the Chinese world. This book explores the fascinating world of the two great forces which sustain the universe and every single life form within it. Martin Palmer examines yin and yangs place at the heart of Chinese medicine, and the environment, and the art of Feng Shui in painting, music and food. He shows how you can apply the principles of yin and yang in your own life to achieve balance and harmony in the areas of health, relationships and sexuality, and in the world around you. Learning about the dynamic tension of opposites will guide you towards a more positive and balanced future.
