The Yin and Yang of Climate Crisis- A Talk by Brendan Kelly, LAc

November 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Brendan Kelly will present 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 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.

Brendan Kelly has been actively involved with local, regional, and national environmental issues for twenty-five years. The co-founder and co-owner of Jade Mountain Wellness, where he currently practices acupuncture and herbalism in Burlington, VT, he also teaches at Johnson State College and the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture. Brendan lectures nationally on a wide variety of topics, including Chinese medicine, Western herbal medicine, personal health, climate change, and other environmental issues.
