Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee Thursday November 29th 2018
Huainanzi Chapter 7: Jingshen and Li 理: The Inner Organizaation of Life (Acupuncture CEUs)
:. This workshop is a unique opportunity to study with an international authority on classical Chinese medicine. In the morning we will continue our examination and discussion of Chapter 7 of the Huainanzi, Jingshen or vital spirits. Our focus will be on the Chinese text as a key to enhancing our practice of Chinese medicine. The morning program is part of our ongoing Classical Chinese Medicine Study Group Series and is open to all interested students.

The afternoon presentation will be on Li 理. Li represents the inner natural organization, cosmic order in any phenomenon, the underlying structure of life. Any form of life possesses its own pattern, allowing its harmonious development, shaping its manifestations, and organizing all life giving and life maintaining movements in them. To know the li is to know things and beings as they are, and to take the li as model. We can guide the conduct of our own life in order to become closer and closer to this heavenly or natural order. This improves the functioning of life at each level: physical, psychological, mental and spiritual.

Fees with CEUs for the full day (7 CEUs) are $150. To attend the morning only (3 CEUs) is $70. To attend the afternoon only (4 CEUs) is $85 Please contact us to register, for more information or for student rates.
