About The Five Wisdoms


About the author 


Asa Hershoff has practiced mindbody medicine and Vajrayana concurrently for 40 years. Completing the traditional three-year retreat under the auspices of Kalu Rinpoche, he was later ordained as a lay lama in Arunachal Pradesh. A pioneer in the Canadian holistic health movement, he is founder of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (1978) and author of three books published by Penguin-Random House. Asa has developed Elemental Psychology as an integration of Vajray─üna, humanistic psychology, bioenergy medicine, and a panglobal perspective on the five elements. This transformative methodology of self-healing, therapy and spiritual growth is represented in his current book projects, You: True & False and The Five Ways of Wisdom due out later this year.
