Banyen's Description: 

The promise and mystery of Chinese medicine continues to attract much attention in the West. This is the current standard, combining Eastern traditions with Western sensibilities in a unique blend that is relevant today. The authors address three vital areas of Chinese medicine—theory, therapy, and types—to present a comprehensive, yet accessible guide. It provides many case history examples in its unfolding of the mysteries of human health and wellbeing.

“Comprehensive, encyclopedic, and lucid, this book is a must for all practitioners of the healing arts who want to broaden their understanding. Readers interested in the role of herbs and foods in healing will also find much to learn here, as I have.” —Annemarie Colbin, author of Food and Healing. Ted Kaptchuk, who wrote the earlier standard in this field, writes: “The authors transmit a unique understanding of the ways in which Chinese medicine enables us to know more intimately the particular nature of our humanity.” Everybody is praising this book!

What pattern connects the crab to the lobster and the orchid to the primrose and all four of them to me? And me to you? —Gregory Bateson

Combining Eastern traditions with Western sensibilities in a unique blend that is relevant today, BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH opens the door to a vast storehouse of knowledge that bridges the gap between mind and body, theory and practice, professional and self-care, East and West.
