by Patrician McCarthy

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The ancient Taoist philosophers used the metaphor of the Five Elements, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water, to explain the relationship, interaction, and ongoing change of everything in the Universe—physical, mental, and spiritual. The Taoist Five Elements : Bare Basics defines—using text, photographs, and graphics—the Taoist perspective of: colors, shapes for Taoist Face Reading (Mien Shiang), shapes for environments (Feng Shui), directions, seasons, climates, expressions, senses, sense organs, tastes, yin and yang organs, emotions, relationships, cycles, and natural orders.
Description
The ancient Taoist philosophers used the metaphor of the Five Elements, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water, to explain the relationship, interaction, and ongoing change of everything in the Universe—physical, mental, and spiritual. The Taoist Five Elements : Bare Basics defines—using text, photographs, and graphics—the Taoist perspective of: colors, shapes for Taoist Face Reading (Mien Shiang), shapes for environments (Feng Shui), directions, seasons, climates, expressions, senses, sense organs, tastes, yin and yang organs, emotions, relationships, cycles, and natural orders. This is an excellent, easy to understand, first step in learning the essentials of the Five Elements, as well as a compact and convenient refresher. Mien Shiang—face reading—has its roots in Taoism and the Five Elements, making The Taoist Five Elements : Bare Basics the ideal complement to Patrician McCarthy’s comprehensive, award-winning book, The Face Reader.
