Heart and Small Intestine Channels
This is a unique opportunity for you to experience the channel systems of acupuncture, as they ought to be learned - from the Classical Perspective of Chinese Medicine.
Daoist Priest and world-renowned Scholar of Chinese Medicine, Master Jeffrey C. Yuen continues to share his extraordinary insights into the 12 Primary Channels of Classical Chinese Medicine with a greater emphasis on the importance of the sequence of the channels and the clinical significance of their progression from the Lung Channel to the Liver Channel. More focus is placed on the philosophical and spiritual aspects of the channels and their acupuncture points and with greater intonation on these channels from the perspective of wellness, self-cultivation and healing.
With this October seminar on the Heart and Small Intestine Channels, Daoist Priest Jeffrey Yuen continues the seminar series of exploring and examining the primary channels as a sequence of continuous pathways where one channel evolves into the next channel as trajectories of wellness and healing. Coming from the perspective that humans intrinsically seek balance, illness is then understood as a rebellion or obstruction to the flows and ebbs of life.
Focusing on the cultivation and awareness of these channels, the intention of this series of seminars is to arouse the practitioners of acupuncture, acupressure/shiatsu, and qigong a much deeper understanding of meridians through their points, location, and trajectories.
The Heart & Small Intestine Channels
These two channels signify the process of self-realization through the further refinement of the opportunities, crises, and events that manifest in one’s life — creating the heart “pains” that inevitably emerge from life. These coupled channels symbolize the heroic conquest of gaining mastery or perhaps indifference to what life “throws at you.” Focusing on how sovereignty can achieved through the Heart channel and its odes, this seminar will emphasize on rekindling the fire and light that burn (however bright or dim) within us, so we can get a sense of completion for ourselves and our patients/clients. By understanding these channels with their trajectories and acupuncture points, participants will realize the beauty of these wondrous meridians.
What Now? Life after Cancer
Staying well when the surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are over Illness can be perceived as an opportunity for learning, discovering, and growing - especially during and in the aftermath of treatments.
Yet for cancer patients in particular, the question often arises as to “what to do next” when they are released from the rigors of treatment regimes.
The pressure to embrace this “new lease of life” and do all they can to stay well goes hand in hand with the need for on-going medical monitoring which can leave patients overwhelmed by fear or feeling powerless with regard to their own health.
This evening talk will examine some of the tools that one can implement to maintain healing and importantly to manage fears in the aftermath of cancer. This talk is suitable for all patients who have or have had a diagnosis of cancer.
