This book is a guide on how to fulfill our most basic human role of harmonizing Heaven and Earth from the perspective of classical Chinese medicine, offering a radically different way of looking at, being in, and interacting with the world from the perspective of ancient Chinese medicine, philosophy, and cosmology. Dr. Wilms combines her elegant literal translations with a wide selection of medical commentaries and quotations from philosophical and cosmological texts, as well as her personal insights, based on three decades of sinological scholarship and many years of teaching Chinese medicine students. Intended as an introduction to authentic classical Chinese medicine and philosophy, it aims to translate ancient Asian wisdom on living in harmony with the universe for contemporary readers.
