Human Body Fengshui

An Almanac of Inner Daoist Cosmology

by Dr. Baolin Wu and Austin Lane Muhs,

in cooperation with Kevin T. Hill, Jessica Eckstein, Michael McBride, Paulina Wierzbicka, and Brent Christopher Wulf

Human Body Fengshui is a unique journey into the mindset of Daoist practitioners and their training modalities. It’s hard to encapsulate the essence of the Dao simply. But if you have ever wondered why a monk would dedicate their entire life to training away from society, then this book can help you understand it. Not everyone has a grasp on the meaning of life, but in a Daoist’s eyes, that meaning is easy to understand. With an in-depth understanding of the human body’s connection to the universe, you can begin to see the depths of how Daoists see the world and why they have chosen this time in history to start uncovering some of their long-held secrets of the heavens.
