"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.
