Regular price $35.00
Regular price Sale price $35.00
Drawing on South and East Asian philosophies and medicines, this book illustrates how our bodies and minds are influenced by our actions, habits, aging, trauma and thought patterns. Using the analogy of being like water, Margot Rossi presents a range of practices - including imagery, Daoyin therapeutic movement, yoga and mindful attention - that help build awareness and potentially shift our form, physiologically and neurologically.
The first section of the book is dedicated to exploring the virtues of being like water, based on 30 years of Rossi's professional and personal experience. Each essay ends with Daoyin therapeutic movements, learned and interpreted from the oral teachings of 88th-generation Daoist master Jeffrey Yuen.
The second section offers teachings of Classical Chinese Medicine theory for patients and practitioners alike. It includes detailed case studies, basic diagnostic steps and demonstrates how health concerns can be used as a foundation for change and growth.

Press Reviews

  • Nick Pole, Mind/body therapist and author of ‘Words That Touch - How to ask questions your body can answer’

    Flowing, floating, diving deep, Margot Rossi is truly in her element as she invites us to 'take the measure' of ourselves through the subtle power of Dao Yin. Woven together with lessons from her own healer's journey, each of these exercises is a potential stepping-stone on that path of self-discovery.
