About this item


Book Synopsis

Foreword by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

#1 New Release on Amazon

"Rasmussen's tone is soothing and easy to follow despite the weighty topic...His deep dive into the Yin Yang symbology and its real-life applications is both compelling and inspiring." -Publishers Weekly

"When faced with difficulties, we should look at the problem from multiple dimensions and not from one angle alone. In this book, Jack Rasmussen shares his personal experience and explores ways to look at life positively. I hope readers find it helpful." -His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

"Jack Rasmussen recounts his own discovery of the ancient concept of yin and yang, and he opens the way to a vast philosophy. His personal story is supported by thorough research, and he asks us to consider the most crucial personal and social issues of our times. Yin Yang: The Elusive Symbol That Explains the World fulfills an exciting journey. Along the way, we can discover yin and yang in our own lives." -Deng Ming-Dao, Author of 365 Tao, The Lunar Tao, Scholar Warrior, and Chronicles of Tao

Yin Yang focuses on the yin-yang symbol's prominence in cultures worldwide and its immersive history. Religious leaders, meditation guides, award-winning authors, psychedelic therapists, and business executives provide in-depth conversations about the vital importance of healthy duality within our lives and how to bring mindfulness, spirituality, and harmony into effective leadership.

Rasmussen is known for making complex topics digestible for his readers. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from psychology and religion to piece together a guide to understanding the beauty of the yin-yang symbol and how it relates to us all.

Today, we all need to develop feelings of self-love. We sometimes lose our identity in a world filled with stress, mental illness, and fear. A new way forward means embracing all of who we are: the dark and the light, the feminine and the masculine, and the rest and action within our authentic personas. It means accepting the yin-yang inside of us and expressing it to the multi-layered, double-sided world outside us. Rasmussen's empowering personal journey of reaching a lifestyle of mindfulness and equanimity is reflected in the hypothesis of his honest writing: To be human is not just to be aware of the duality within and around oneself but to embrace it, accept it, and use it to reach the ultimate version of yourself.

Review Quotes

"Jack delves deeper into the power of a universal symbol, shedding light and offering purposeful hope for a world sometimes filled with doubt and darkness." -Jon Gordon, 14x Best-Selling Author

"Yin Yang is a charming and helpful book. Rasmussen is open about himself, writes in an easy and engaging manner, and provides integrated wisdom beyond his years about a complex and important topic." -Fred Luskin, Ph.D., Author of Forgive for Good and Stress Free for Good, Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects

"Jack brings an accessible, didactic, simple, and, at the same time, profound approach to concepts that may transform our lives, giving more meaning to our daily routines, and he does this from a fantastic first-person experience. I recommend reading." -Marcelo Demarzo, M.D., Ph.D., Founder of the "Mente Aberta" - The Brazilian Center for Mindfulness and Health Promotion

"Another well-conceived contribution to the mindfulness literature. Jack Rasmussen's book Yin Yang reminds us that [the practice of] mindfulness offers [us] a fulcrum for achieving a balance between the active and passive, constructive and letting go (flow) aspects of our daily existence." -Edmund J. Bourne, Ph.D., Author of The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook

"'If you have a little spiritual knowledge, you should share it. This is the best type of charity.' This [sentiment] is a teaching from my guru. In sharing these teachings, Jack Rasmussen is helping to dispel a little of the darkness of ignorance." -Sri Dharma Mittra, Founder and Director of Dharma Yoga Center

"I found Yin Yang to be a truly fascinating book. I read it at a time when I, like so many others, was experiencing burnout. This book is the perfect antidote to the problem. I especially enjoyed learning about Jack's own very personal experiences. I was particularly moved and inspired by his vulnerability in sharing past struggles. I would thoroughly recommend Yin Yang. It is a book that everyone needs to read in this extremely chaotic and complex modern world in which we all live today." -Jonny Benjamin, Author, Filmmaker, and Founder of Youth Mental Health Charity Beyond

"Few authors can tackle such a profound concept with sophistication and versatility. Rasmussen has done both. Great read!" -Damon West, Bestselling Author of The Coffee Bean

"The world has been chaotic and will still be so for many years. But from the perspective of a Taoist philosopher, everything is nothing but yin and yang. The formula of happiness or good resolution for everything is yin yang balance. Rasmussen, with his book, all the more strengthens such a point!" -Master Gu Shining, Founder of the Wudang Taoist Wellness Academy
