Hidden at the heart of Chinese medicine is a little known treasure called the Five Spirits. Similar to the Hindu chakra system, the Five Spirits are a map of the human psyche that describes a precise and efficient technology for psychospiritual transformation. Here acupuncturist Dechar shows how the spirit can be worked with to heal physical, emotional and psychological distress as well as trigger deeper spiritual transformation. This practice emerges from the Taoist tradition of “the mysterious feminine” the yin nurturing mother energy within all of us that needs only to be called upon to heal us at the deepest levels of our being. This aspect of Chinese medicine goes beyond the healing of pain and disease, beyond the maintenance and repair of the physical body. The Five Spirits are the Taoist map of the human psyche. The system provides a view of the nervous system and forms the basis of Chinese medical psychology. It also describes a precise and efficient technology for spiritual transformation, the process through which a human being rediscovers their essential wholeness and innate connection to the divine. By taking advantage of the discoveries of Western archetypal psychology and new discoveries about the mind and nervous system, we can decipher the Five Spirits and reorganize the system in a way that has proven to be clinically invaluable in treating psychosomatic, emotional, and psychospiritual distress. 424 pages
