Translating Ancient Chinese Wisdom into Medicine for Today

Cultivating Yin

…to contemplate and cultivate Yin…

Wuwei on Facebook

This daily practice of cultivating Yin is already working its magic!

The focus on wuwei (which I will translate here as “non-engagement”) recently led me to leave a busy popular Facebook group for academically oriented Chinese medicine people where I had been quite active, in a community that included a lot of my friends and students. Correcting the frequent inaccuracies and misunderstandings about Chinese culture and history, and about true “traditional” Chinese medicine, took a lot of my time and created much negative energy, since nobody likes to be told that they are wrong.

It was so easy to just step away and let that one go. The world doesn’t need more conflict.
