CHINESE ALCHEMY


CHINESE ALCHEMY

JEAN COOPER    Book Number: 81755    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'Taoism, The Power of Gold, and The Quest for Immortality', here is an essential guide to Chinese legend and lore, Chinese magic and medicine and Taoism. Here in one slender volume are the essentials to a tradition that dates back to 3000BC. It looks at the role of minerals and plants, medicines, astrology, yoga and magic and alchemy in the East and in the West. Largely associated with Taoism, it has a recorded history going back to the Yellow Emperor and his Three Immortal Ladies. Jean Cooper compares it with similar traditions in India and Turkistan, and with the rationale of the Western hermetic tradition. A mind, body and spirit classic. 156pp in illustrated paperback. Rare import.
