Countless thousands of us in the West have reaped the benefit of ancient Taoist lore, from the Tao of Pooh to the secrets of acupuncture, the mystery of Yin and Yang and the rejuvenating practices of Master Mantak Chia.
?Now we can see how it all began, and how the Tao, the way and the light, began to illuminate, in the lives of those early pioneers of Taost Shamanism, the art of stepping lightly in all worlds.
?Now we can understand why the practices were so long kept secret, and why "you cannot tell a sage by his clothes."
?Where do we modern folk fit in the medicine wheel?? Indeed, what is the medicine wheel?? How did the Dragon gain his ascendancy to mandate the Son of Heaven?? Who was the Great Bear and how did he split the land?? Why does the Yangtse River flood even today? Nothing less than fascinating is this exploration of the shamanic origins of Taoist practice unravelling the webs of mystery clinging to our modern perception of ancient practice.
?Thoroughly researched, rich in history and with detailed maps, drawings and lucid explanations, The Taoist Medicine Wheel casts new light on the I Ching, the Five Elements and the The Three Pure Ones.? Check out the Chapter comparing other shamanic traditions for a real insight into the common threads of the origins of human spiritual thought!
