Revue de presse

Zhongxian Wu and Karin Taylor Wu have accomplished the feat of producing a readable account of Gan-Zhi, one of the most complex subjects among the gnostic sciences of ancient China: the detailed calculation of how, exactly, the Above and the Below interweave and create qualitative differences in our space-time environment. A must read for every serious student of classical Chinese medicine and ancient cosmology. --Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, Founding Professor, School of Classical Chinese Medicine, National College of Natural Medicine

The subject of Stems and Branches is a real challenge for everyone who studies or works in the field of Classical Chinese Medicine. This wonderful book, based on authentic classical texts, is of great importance for those who seek deeper understanding for the sake of the health and peace of their patients and themselves. I am grateful to Master Wu and Dr. Karin Taylor Wu for their inspiration and for opening gateways into the hidden knowledge of the fundamentals of Chinese Medicine. --Joan Duveen M.Ac., practitioner and teacher of acupuncture according to the heavenly stems and earthly branches

Master Wu and Dr. Taylor Wu's outstanding new book introduces the basic principles, key applications, imagery, poetry and philosophy of the ancient science of TianGan DiZhi. The study of 'Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches' is an important gateway opening to a deeper understanding of applied Chinese Philosophy, and especially the inner aspects of Traditional Medicine, Geomancy, Pugilism, Music Theory and Taoist Internal Alchemy. Written with a distinctive flair for Chinese scholarship, this book cuts deep into the heart of the matter. If you strive to achieve a better understanding of your Chinese art, this book will certainly guide you towards the correct path. --Ioannis Solos, Chinese Medicine practitioner, researcher and author, Beijing, China

Présentation de l'éditeur

Essential reading for serious students of Chinese practical arts, including medicine, martial arts and FengShui, Master Zhongxian Wu and Dr Karin Taylor Wu provide a detailed explanation of the 22 GanZhi symbols in this book, outlining the characteristics of each, and their interactions and relationships.

TianGan (Heavenly Stems) and DiZhi (Earthly Branches), commonly abbreviated to GanZhi, originated in the ancient Chinese cosmological sciences and is a complex calendrical system which was created to codify the patterns of life and of the universe itself. The ten symbols of Gan express the Yin or Yang perspective of Five Elements and embody the Way of Heaven. The 12 symbols of Zhi, made manifest in the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, hold the root of each Element and embrace the Way of Earth.

Poetic summaries from the Song dynasty give the reader a deep understanding of the nature of each Stem and their relationship to each other. Offering an unprecedented insight into the subtleties and far-reaching influence of this ancient system, this book will be invaluable for the study or practice of Chinese medicine, FengShui, Chinese astrology, traditional Chinese cosmology, Qigong, Taiji, and other inner cultivation practices.

A set of study cards (9781848191501), also published by Singing Dragon, are available to accompany this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Keys to the Sublime 24 juillet 2013
Par EarthHeavenHuman - Publié sur
Format: Cartes
Although mankind is terrestrial, there can be no separation from the influence of the celestial. The Chinese classics of Internal Medicine discuss the many relationships between the macrocosm and the microcosm of man through the Twelve Earthy Branches and the Ten Heavenly Stems. These concepts are interwoven into almost all aspects of Chinese culture, arts and medicine.

The "Key to the Sublime" lies in the ability to apply the energetic potential unlocked by the knowledge of the movements of the Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches. With such an understanding, a practitioner may calibrate the energetic rhythm and flow of an activity, event, or medical treatment. Simply balancing self with all that is.

This particular set of cards is of extraordinary quality. Each card represents not only the individual qualities of each stem and branch but is also color coordinated. This makes stitching together an energetic correlation much easier and more fun. Further each stem and branch has been detailed with the original calligraphy of Master Wu. A beautiful execution and offers visual support for its creation.

Overall, I feel these are great tool for attempting to communicate your thoughts and ideas on the subject to others. A quality set aiding to unlock your potentials.

It is an extremely comprehensive resource of a very ancient and complex system of knowledge - one that I will enjoy referring to over and over again for the rest of my days. Thank you, Master Wu and Dr Taylor Wu, for this invaluable gem.

I have tried to research the origins of the stems and branches system but this book lays out information like I haven't seen, very clear illustrations of the star patterns responsible for the oracle scripts. Goes into great detail about the wu xing, the 4 palaces of the sky, the related body parts, even the lunar mansions. I absolutely adore this book. The meditation stances for each stem is also beautiful.
