Banyen's Description: 

The first book marrying western environmentalism with Chinese medicine, The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis illustrates the many ways that our personal well-being and climate health are vitally connected. Brendan Kelly demonstrates that crises such as melting ice caps, dying forests, and devastating floods are symptoms of deeper issues, both within us as individuals and within our culture. Informed by Kelly’s experience as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, this passionate discussion reveals that the current life-threatening severity of climate change speaks to the level of imbalance that exists in the people and institutions responsible for the crisis. Considering issues such as loss of life from increasingly severe storms, stress on farmers from rapidly changing weather, and increasing rates of disease, this book goes on to present hopeful, deep-reaching personal and societal remedies to treat the underlying causes of climate change and to restore our own health.

The warming and destabilization of the climate mirrors our own personal imbalances, as well as the imbalances in our country and our culture. Just as the planet is rapidly warming and destabilizing, we as individuals are dramatically and unsustainably overstimulated…

What is the remedy for the sickness of climate change?... Even a symptom that is as severe and wide-reaching as climate change has a set of remedies that can address it through treating its underlying causes.

The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis blends the external focus of environmentalism (western science, policy issues, regulations) with the internal focus of Chinese medicine (personal health, balancing Qi, diet) to present a holistic view of our interrelationship with the planet. Kelly provides a deeper look at how we’ve gotten to this place of climate destabilization and ways to treat both the symptoms and their root causes. Looking through the lens of Chinese medicine, we are better able to understand that the severity of climate destabilization speaks to deeper philosophical and spiritual issues and provides an opportunity to address our own personal and collective imbalances.

With far-reaching perceptions, Kelly encourages us to translate the reality of our warming planet into an opportunity to ask bigger and deeper questions, including who we are, what we’re here to do, and what promotes health and healing.
