Why Many Paths?
My teacher, Kaneko Sensei, was presenting a workshop on 5-Element application of Shiatsu-Anma. One of my students, accustomed to another TCM theoretical model stressing Eight Principles and Zang-Fu theory became frustrated with an apparent contradiction. Kaneko replied to her rather inflammatory question with a smile and this phrase...
There are many paths up the mountain.
His smile and calm retort has stayed with me for many years. It summarizes a flexibility of mind and practical approach to life and medicine that is embodied in the Taoist principles underlying much of East Asian culture.
