Praise for the first edition'Keepers of the Soul is an important addition to the literature of this area. I would strongly recommend students of acupuncture to read this book, which provides a spiritual context into which they can place the more concrete structures of other aspects of their training. For working acupuncturists too, however long they have been practising and from whatever discipline they may come, the book offers an insight into a subtle and very effective way of working, and demonstrates how much we all can learn from each other.'
