Buddha, Freud and Tao - Psychosomatic Medicine in the East and West

Buddha, Freud und Dao - Psychosomatik in Ost und West

The concept of health in the Far East is described in texts such as the I Ching, the Tao Te Ching of Lao Tse and in the writings of Confucius and Buddhism. In the west, practices such as traditional Chinese medicine,acupuncture, qigong and yoga are well known.    
This documentary attempts to fathom the concept of psychosomatic illness and to place humans, in all their complexity and interactiveness, within their sociocultural environment. In interviews with experts from Europe and China it becomes apparent, somewhat surprisingly, how much east and west have in common when it comes to psychosomatic medicine - a cultural and spiritual understanding of humanity which began with Freud, C.G. Jung and the Sinologist Richard Wilhelm and which has yet to be exhausted.
