Participants in this class will be introduced to foundational theories of Chinese medicine. This first class in a series that will focus on Taoist Cosmology– the dominant philosophy behind the principles of Chinese medicine and the concept of Yin/Yang theory.
Following classes in this series will then move through the concepts of holism vs. reduction-ism, the principles of Qi (energy), 8 Principle theory, Zang/Fu (Organ) Theory, channels and point system, 6 Jiao Theory, 5 Element theory, and the generation of Qi, Blood and Fluids.
This is a required course for my apprentices, and is open to public and practitioners as well. There is no prerequisite for this class.
