Could there be a correlation between climate crisis and chronic illness?

How do we begin to heal the state of chronic inflammation that is affecting the equilibrium of our planet and public health?

Brendan Kelly will be presenting the ideas and research from his recently published book—The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis. Melting ice caps, dying forests, and devastating floods are symptoms of deeper issues, both within us as individuals and within our culture. Informed by Brendan’s experience as a practitioner of Chinese medicine, we’ll discuss how the current life-threatening severity of climate change speaks to the level of imbalance that exists in the people and institutions responsible for the crisis. Looking through the lens of Chinese medicine, we are better able to understand that the severity of climate destabilization speaks to deeper philosophical and spiritual issues and provides an opportunity to address our own personal and collective imbalances. We’ll also talk about hopeful, deep-reaching personal and societal remedies to treat the underlying causes of climate change.

What is happening in the climate is a mirror of what is happening with us and within our culture.

We’ll also use an eastern perspective to see the patterns in the enormous amounts of climate data. Brendan will be presents the ideas and research from this new book The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis, which blends the external focus of environmentalism (e.g., western science, policy issues, regulations) with the internal focus of Chinese medicine (e.g., personal health, balancing Qi, diet).
