Yin Yang Theory and the Nature of Mind

Western Philosophy and Theologies have wrestled with the nature of Mind for over 2500 years and are still at it. But what we regard as Western civilisation covers less than half of mankind.

By well over 2500 years ago, another great civilisation had already been giving it a good deal of attention, probably for millennia. Several books written during the first millennia BC remain in daily use today because of their profundity and because of their suggestions on how to treat the sick.

Along with the medicines of many other oriental countries, Chinese medicine is still based on the Huangdi NeiJing. How it views the mind and how it treats mental disease still goes back to this and other early masterpieces.

Find out how Chinese medicine deals with the concept of Self and ideas of the spirit, soul and mind: then how it approaches our supposedly modern problems of, for example:

  • depression and anxiety
  • insomnia
  • emotions: problems arising from ou
  • bipolar conditions
  • attention deficit and hyper-activity, even ...
  • dementia.

All of it in 50 minutes? Well, probably not, but there will be time for questions!

Invitation only: NOT OPEN to public

How Disease invades the Body

Who likes being ill?! And how do you know you're getting ill?

Though also very dependent on your constitution and other internal and external factors, there is a 'typical' way in which we get ill.

Once this is recognised, you can often see whether your illness is being successfully repulsed or whether your body is reluctantly being forced onto its back foot as the disease invades you further.

Jonathan talks about how you can also decide whether treatment is helping or not (whether from medication, or DIY self-dosing, or acupuncture, or herbs or ...)

So it pays to know how, typically, disease invades your body!

What on Earth has Chinese medicine got to do with Spirituality - let alone Potential?

Maybe suffering and struggle produce spirituality, but for most of us it helps to start practising when we’re well.

Western medicine recognises diseases but Chinese medicine recognises many of the states we get into before we get ill, as defined by Western medicine. It identifies what predispose us to illness.

One of the greatest inspirations for Chinese medicine has been the concept of yin-yang, and the theory of change. 

Jonathan talks about how this will help you reach your potential!

Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Books

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)

Request! Please!

If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.

You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.

And if you think it was terrible?

Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)

Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.

Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.

Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress

Yin Deficiency - Burnout and Exhaustion

Yang Deficiency - Get Your Fire Burning Again!

Yuck! Phlegm! How to Clear Your Phlegm ...

Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine



Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!

Six Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
