“People are always asking me, ‘How can I be happy? Or, How can I find the thing I really want to do in life?’ I tell them: You are standing on your answer. The secrets of your life are written on your body.” This wonderful passage is from the first chapter of this truly inspired work, Reading the Body.
A genuine favorite among readers all over the world, in this book Ohashi helps you to discover and learn your own secrets. You will come to understand both your physical and spiritual condition as revealed in the physical self. This is because, as Ohashi observes, “the body is the physical manifestation of the soul.” Your posture, your features, even the texture of your skin can reveal your inner self.
Reading the Body is both a practical guide to living well and Ohashi’s fascinating meditation on how to live. The goal of Oriental Diagnosis is to develop unity of the body, mind, and spirit. Ohashi emphasizes that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and that accommodating our weaknesses is as important as utilizing our strengths.
