Nope, it's not the name of a master meditator/martial artist/holy monk who lives in the woods.
It's a concept; a philosophy of living; and when practiced on a daily basis, becomes part of the fabric of your daily routine. It isn't really a singular task that you do and check off at the end of the day. It's really more of the way you approach your tasks and the mindset (or your attitude) that you take when you go through the mundane, daily motions of living. And what powers the beating of the heart of the concept of Yang Sheng? The idea of nurturing and self care.
OK. Maybe I'm making this sound a little too simple. Or so simple that it just becomes downright confusing (sorta like when Mr Miyagi tells Daniel in the Karate Kid to "wax on, wax off" in typical zen-like fashion, while teaching him karate - and poor Daniel wonders how the heck any of this stuff even relates to real life!)
This is where I come in and do my typical filibuster...
