Author Margery Runyan Offers a Fascinating Glimpse Into the Life of an Identical Twin in the Top-Rated Memoir “The Tao of Twins: A Heroine’s Journey”

Dr. Runyan, a Jungian psychotherapist and Medical Qigong practitioner in both Colorado and southern France, enchants readers with her synthesis of similar archetypes across several world mythologies – from ancient Greek and Roman, to Dine, Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist. With incredible insight, Dr. Runyan finds the courage to express the distinct pain a twin feels at the loss of her identical twin sister. Her willingness to bare her soul while honoring her commitment to live a deeply symbolic life makes this book very accessible and meaningful to readers.

Dr. Runyan urges readers to “take a glimpse into the twin world,” posing the question: “How does our heroine survive twin loss and ascend into the light of herself? How does an identical twin move beyond duality into unity?” As a student of Advaita Vedanta – the Hindu school of non-dualism, Theosophy, Buddhism, and Taoism, she has transcended the outer world of Maya and found peace and silence within the inner world of Oneness within Multiplicity. Her eventual return to Taoism as her primary worldview is amplified with great beauty in this astounding memoir.

“The Tao shows her the way: ‘The dark is the root of the light. The still is the source of all motion. The wise one trusts her heart above the world. She lets all things come and go and focuses on heaven,” adds Dr. Runyan, who, aside from twin loss, has survived trauma and addiction. However, there is hope, according to Dr. Runyan. She claims: “Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”

In a review on Amazon, one of the readers, Laurie, states that Dr. Runyan’s descriptions of the depth of love characteristic of twins and the complexity of those relationships are given due consideration, with loving patience and empathy for other twins who face separation or death of the twin and for those supporting and surrounding them.

“I learned so much about the parenting of twins and how we easily label and why that can be so detrimental to children, especially multiples. The characters of Mythology, Astrology, and Jungian archetypes are outlined effortlessly and bring depth to the read. I believe everyone will benefit from this read on some level, and it should be a must-read for families of multiples,” wrote Laurie.

Dr. Goren, a doctor of acupuncture and QiGong master, says the memoir intertwines an incredible true story of a twin sister with her mastery of Medical Qigong and knowledge of the movement of Qi throughout the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energies, the Jin, the Qi and the Shen. “It shows the deep connection between twins, the effect on one another, and the opportunity for growth as a result of it,” writes Dr. Goren.

Logan Crawford (, Emmy award-winning interviewer, has endorsed this memoir as an astounding journey through the fires of hell and back to the community with knowledge and wisdom to share.  The heroine transcends death and returns to a higher life of the soul.
