The Kidney Channel
Within the perspective of the primary channels of acupuncture, the Kidney meridian reflects the deepest layer of human energetics – the inherited, congenital, and constitutional level. Understanding its dynamics affords the clinician access to genetic and epigenetic information which can foster a patient’s ability to further learn about his or her illness in the scheme of life and its predestined tendencies. From a philosophical perspective within Chinese medicine, Kidneys represent the Water element, which signifies completion — the maturity and ripening (at times, the dying process) – within the cycles of life and evolution. In addition, Water conveys the substantiation of the spirit in the physical realm and its qualities of flow, erosion, and depth. This weekend seminar will explore the significance and poetry of the Kidney channel via its sequence, trajectories, and point energetics.
The San Jiao (Triple Heater) Channel
San Jiao is one of the most elusive concepts within Chinese medicine. Conveying mystery due to its lack of substantiation, it is often conceived as the intricate balance or “states” between the form and the formless. It’s principles and theories have been influenced by the Yijing (Book of Changes), Chinese alchemy, and the practice of qigong. The channel appears in the sequence of the primary meridians after visitation to the constitutional level and acknowledgement of the heart pains endemic in human existence. As such, the San Jiao channel offers insight into the cultivation techniques crucial for the resolution of our mental-emotional attachments and affords us the opportunity to recognize the impermanence/formlessness intrinsic in the material/physical realm. This weekend seminar will explore the significance of the San Jiao channel via its sequence, trajectories, and point energetics, along with its relevance to everyday life.
Public Lecture Details:
Wuji is conceptually associated with nothingness evolving into or out of somethingness in Daoism. Among its qualities, WuJi includes the notion of non-attachment to any “form,” the process of letting go (sometimes referred to as wang-forgetting), and the perceptual “sensation” of being all “things.” The paradox in Daoism has been utilising approaches to “attain” nothingness (WuJi) through somethingness. One such approach has been through the practice of meditative qigong developed by various Daoist lineages. This evening, participants will be introduced to the practice of WuJi Qigong based on the Shangqing Daoist tradition.
