Reviews/Press Quotes

"As the title promises, this book is a dance, not an argument. Although it emerged from the quest of an individual, it transcends the personal. [Stuart's] insights and his sensitivity to the subtle world would be intimidating if he were not so real."
- Marily Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

" extraordinary integration of ideas and practical exercises which will dazzle and delight the reader. This is a profound book that clarifies difficult issues and makes them easy to comprehend."
- David Surrenda, former Dean of the John F. Kennedy University Graduate School of Consciousness Studies

"This book makes accessible the lesser known creative and evolutionary side of Chinese medicine. This is where Chinese medicine should begin."
- Michael Broffman, Director of the Pine Street Chinese Benevolent Association and Clinic

"The Dance of Becoming is a key to the universal birthright of power and wonder which lies dormant within us. It is the embodiment of T'ai Chi in personal form."
-Fredric Lehrman, author of The Sacred Landscape
