Live Well Live Long explores the wonderful Chinese tradition of nourishing life (yangsheng) and applies it to modern life. Continuously developed over more than 25 centuries, yangsheng serves as a workshop manual for the care of the human body, mind, and spirit. Its teachings can help us improve our health and lengthen our lives through cultivating the mind, emotions, diet, exercise, sleep, sexual behavior and much more.
In addition to the traditional topics covered in yangsheng teachings, concern for social, global, and planetary health in the modern age demands the application of the wise principles of the yangsheng tradition to issues as varied as social justice, education, modern childbirth, climate change and environmental degradation, and agricultural sustainability. All of these topics are covered in this meticulously researched book.
