From the November 2010 international symposium "Imagining the Feminine in East Asian Religions and Medicine," held in Heidelberg, Germany, 12 essays explore the soteriological applications of embryological and gestational discourses in East Asian religious traditions. In so far as possible, they have bypassed literal procreation--medical embryologies--to focus on the more figurative interpretations. Covering China and Japan in turn, they consider such topics as symbolic pregnancy and the sexual identity of Taoist adepts, the effectiveness of symbols: women's bodies as mandalas, "human yellow" and magical power in Japanese medieval tantrism and culture, and embryology in early modern Soto Zen Buddhism.
