Les principes de « l'Art de Vivre » selon le Zhuangzi chapitre 3
plus de détails fermer détails Ce chapitre du Zhuangzi, le troisième, envisage le pur médian, l'Homme royal médiateur entre Ciel et Terre et nœud contemporain de souffles.
Comment maintenir ce nœud de souffles qui me fait être, qui me constitue ? Comment éviter un dénouement prématuré ? Comment vivre pour que ce centre, responsable du nœud de souffles que je suis, opère ce retour et, après déliement, se retrouve intégré plus essentiellement encore dans le courant de la vie universelle, et s'y maintienne.
À la question cruciale répond moins une philosophie qu'un art de vivre. Les principes de l'Art de Vivre sont toute la philosophie chinoise et les recettes de la vie, l'éthique personnelle ou sociale des Chinois.
La vie se maintient d'autant mieux que l'on ne cherche pas à la retenir grossièrement à tout prix, mais qu'on sait la garder, subtilement et révérencieusement.

Après la prodigieuse aventure de l'unification de la Chine par le Premier Empereur Qin Shi Huangdi, une communauté de Taoïstes, de Confucéens, de Légistes et plus largement, des meilleurs esprits du temps, dans la paix retrouvée, a produit cette œuvre, composite peut-être, mais profondément intégrée.

A Study of Qi in Classical Texts

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed, 2006

A detailed investigation of qi in medicine, and of the origin and development of the concept itself.
plus de détails fermer détails This book is an edited transcript of two seminars given in 2004 in London by Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée. It not only contains detailed descriptions of the various differentiated kinds of qi, but also a wide-ranging philosophical investigation and explanation of the origin and development of the concept of qi itself. It begins by looking at the historical evolution and use of the Chinese character for qi, and goes on to discuss how qi appears in philosophical texts such as the Zuozhuan, Zhuangzi, Mencius and the Huainanzi, and in the medical texts of the Neijing and Nanjing. These give context and depth to our understanding of this ever-present but elusive activity of life.

Yin Yang in Classical Texts

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 2006

An exploration of the concept of yin yang in philosophical and medical classical texts.
plus de détails fermer détails Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée continues her study of the Chinese classical texts with an exploration of the concept of yin yang, guiding us through the early writings of the Spring and Autumn Annals, the Daoist classics of Laozi, Zhuangzi and Huainanzi, and the medical texts of the Yellow Emperor, the Neijing Suwen.
An understanding of yin yang helps us to penetrate the world view which lies behind classical Chinese thinking. It is a world view quite different from that of the modern West. It speaks of relationship, mutual resonance, constant change and transformation. And yin yang is that which underpins this inter-relationship and co-dependence, giving the fundamental rules for life and the possibility of living in harmony with nature.
Chinese characters are included throughout the text to clarify the meaning of key terms. Where appropriate, the ideograms are explained in detail.

Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 1997

A full examination of the eight extraordinary meridians from the texts of the Neijing,
the Nanjing and their commentaries.
plus de détails fermer détails This book presents a full examination of the eight extraordinary meridians from the texts of the Neijing (The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic), the Nanjing (The Classic of Difficult Issues), and their commentaries.
The first section gives an overview of the eight as the template of the interaction of yin and yang within the body, providing the foundation for the movement of qi and the underlying framework for the main meridian system.
There follows a detailed description of the du mai, the governor vessel, with a study of the point names as a key to its functions. The ren mai, chong mai and dai mai are then presented, building up a simple structural picture of the body which is further elaborated in presentations of the qiao and wei mai. Each Chinese meridian name is discussed, looking at the etymology and nuances of meaning, and giving fresh insight into the function of these eight extraordinary meridians. Classical descriptions of points and pathways are explored in depth.
An index of Chinese characters and main concepts is included.

The Five Elements, Wu Xing in Classical Chinese Texts

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 2009

The development of the Five Elements theory and how it became one of the
main basis of Chinese medical thinking.
plus de détails fermer détails Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée continues her exploration of the key concepts of Chinese medicine and philosophy with a study of wuxing, the five elements, phases or movements. Guiding us through well chosen chapters of the Spring and Autumn Annals and its commentary, the Huainanzi, and the medical texts of the Neijing Suwen, Elisabeth explains the development of these ancient ideas which provide such an important basis for zangfu theory within Chinese medicine.
This fascinating book traces the development of wuxing theory from its early beginnings – where we see the five elements in their literal sense, as the five materials necessary for survival on earth – to its incorporation into the sophisticated cosmological system of yinyang wuxing during the 2nd century BCE. The second part of the books explores the five elements as the basis of Chinese medical thinking.

The Extraordinary Fu

Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 2003

A study of the six extraordinary fu, the brain, marrow, bones, vital circulation (mai), gallbladder and uterus.
plus de détails fermer détails The six extraordinary fu, the brain, marrow, bones, vital circulation, gallbladder and uterus, are a set of remarkable systems within the body which can act as fu but which also have the ability to store essences. Each of the six systems is examined in detail, and an introductory section provides etymological insights to give the reader a thorough grounding in the concept of ‘extraordinary’.
The extraordinary fu enable us to connect at a level more fundamental and more primitive than that encompassed by the ordinary zang and fu. The extraordinary fu ensure the continuity of life through the essences which are stored within them.
This is an inspiring book, and one which addresses an area of Chinese medicine too rarely mentioned. The authors’ insights and perceptions are always aimed at awakening our sensitivity to the profound mystery of an individual’s vitality, and thereby bringing us closer to what is extraordinary, surprising and wonderful about life itself.

A study of the Heart Master aspect of the Heart, and of the developing concept of the
Triple Heater in the Classical texts and their commentaries.
plus de détails fermer détails The first part of this book clarifies the aspects of the heart which have been variously translated as heart governor, heart protector, heart constrictor and pericardium. Xin zhu is discussed as ‘the heart as master’ and contrasted with the heart as a void. Xin bao luo is presented as the enveloping and connecting aspect of the heart, and tan zhong as the central temple within the chest – the sea of qi and gathering place of ancestral qi, the place of transmission for elation and joy.
The classical descriptions of the hand xin zhu (heart master, pericardium) meridian and the hand shao yin (heart) meridian are also clarified.
The second part of the book shows the developing concept of the triple heater as seen in the Nei jing, the Nan jing and later commentaries. It is considered both as a separate fu and as the unifying totality of the zangfu. Its fire-water polarity is discussed: as water through its links with the kidneys and bladder, and as a fire minister with the Gate of Destiny, ming men and xin bao luo.
The upper, middle and lower heaters are examined, with particular reference to Lingshu chapter 18, which presents them as responsible for respiration, digestion and elimination respectively. Their connections with ancestral (zong), nutritive (ying) and defensive (wei) qi are also shown.

developing baby during pregnancy.

These ancient teachings are still valuable today and enhance our understanding of the transformations of blood and qi which take place during the ten months of a pregnancy. Together with its companion volume, The Essential Woman, Elisabeth Rochat has given us an two indispensable guides to the classical Chinese perception of women’s health and fertility.

An understanding of women’s health through a range of Chinese texts both well-known and more obscure.
plus de détails fermer détails An understanding of women’s health is essential to modern Chinese medical practice, yet it has rarely been studied from the classics.

There follow sections on infertility, the menopause and various menstrual problems. While explaining theory in depth this book is also supremely practical and will be of great help in the clinic.

A translation and commentary of the first two chapters of a source book for Traditional
Chinese Medicine for two thousand years. (Translated from French by Peter Firebrace)
plus de détails fermer détails The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, the Neijing, has been a source book for traditional Chinese medicine for two thousand years. The Way of Heaven is a translation of the first two chapters together with a commentary.
In Suwen chapter 1 the Yellow Emperor, Huangdi, asks why vitality is no longer retained into old age.

Chapter 2 continues with an explanation of how we should live in tune with the four seasons, and gives behaviour appropriate to the time of the year. It introduces the concept of the five elements as resonances of the energies of the four seasons.

Jing Shen, A Translation of Huainanzi Chapter 7

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 2010

This major Daoist text of the early Han Dynasty examines the origins of life and the
integral place of human beings within the cosmos.
plus de détails fermer détails Jing Shen is the title of the seventh chapter of the Huainanzi, a major Daoist text of the early Chinese Han dynasty. Until recently it has remained relatively unrecognized and only partially translated. Long dismissed as merely a reiteration of earlier writings, its importance as a work in its own right and its role in Chinese intellectual history is only now beginning to be appreciated. Chapter 7, Jing Shen – vital or embodied spirit – examines the origins of life and the integral place of human beings within the cosmos. As a contemporary text to the Huangdi Neijing, The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, it is of interest to practitioners of Chinese medicine as well as to the more general reader.

The double aspect of the Heart

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 2012

The two functions (energetic qualities and meridians) of the Heart in Chinese Medicine
Translated from the French by Madelaine Moulder
plus de détails fermer détails Within Chinese medicine the heart is presented as having a double aspect – two functions, two energetic qualities, two meridians. Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée explores this double aspect of the heart – the heart/mind that regulates emotions and acts as the dwelling place of the spirits, and the heart as governor of blood and the circulatory system – the system which connects and protects.
Beginning with a study of the fire element – in both its ‘sovereign’ and ‘ministerial’ aspects, Elisabeth then looks at the relationships between the heart and the blood, the connections with the upper orifices and organs of perception, the emotions, and finally explores the meridian pathways of both heart and pericardium, including a discussion of the main acupuncture points.

Aspects of Spirit - Hun po, Jing Shen, Yi Zhi in Classical Chinese Texts

Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée, Monkey Press Ed., 2013

The concept of spirit and its relationship to the development of human consciousness
through the classical Chinese literature.
plus de détails fermer détails In ‘Aspects of Spirit’ Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée explores the concept of spirit and its relationship to the development of human consciousness through the classical Chinese literature. Beginning with a section on hun and po (the yin yang aspects of the human soul), moving on to jing shen (vital spirit), and concluding with yi and zhi (intent and will), each section examines the characters for each term, followed by examples of their usage in the classical philosophical texts and concludes with a study of their specific application within the medical texts of the Huangdi Neijing, Suwen and Lingshu.
Because of her intimate knowledge of both the medical and philosophical texts of this period, Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée is uniquely placed within the scholarship of classical Chinese medicine. We are very fortunate that she has brought the depth of her understanding and insight to this fascinating and often misunderstood subject. There has been much debate in recent years concerning the treatment of the spirit within Chinese medicine. This book establishes a firm grounding for that discussion, as well as providing inspiration for our own spiritual cultivation.
