In this episode Mattias Daly speaks with Dr. Ilia Mozias of the University of Tel Aviv about his book The Literati Path to Immortality: The Alchemical Teachings of Lu Xixing. Lu Xixing (1520-1606) of the Ming dynasty was posthumously credited with founding the “Eastern School” of internal alchemy, but he was neither a monk nor a priest. Rather, he was a Confucian who learned directly from Daoist immortals including Lü Dongbin. He wrote numerous influential commentaries on Daoist texts, and a fascinating personal account of his cultivation path.
