Jonathan Edwards "The Yijing in Classical Chinese Medicine."
The symbolic language of the Yijing is a universal language, and yet, given its cultural origins, one especially well-suited to articulating Chinese medical concepts. Yi means 'medicine' as well as 'change,' after all. After a crash course in the eight trigrams, the "words" of the Yi's language, this talk will explore some of the ways the oracle can be used to enrich our understanding of the medicine.
Adam Burrill “The Outside Reflects the Inside: Chinese Medicine and Channel Theory”
According to Classical Chinese Medicine, the internal health of a person is reflected on the outside of the body as seen through symptoms of disease or health. The ancients also noticed that internal health can be affected by treating the outer body. Learn how the Channels provide the framework for understanding acupuncture.
Dave Gaines “Understanding the Pulse: the Tides of Our Being”
Join me for a comparative exploration of how the tides of the oceans are generated, influenced and perceived as related to the rhythmic picture of the human pulse: layers
of cycles and waves within our bodies that can be read by a trained practitioner. When we feel the pulse of another we learn about past, present and future.
