Course Overview

The Ling Shu states that all diseases are rooted in the spirit, and texts tell us that the Shen resides in the Heart, the sovereign ruler of all the Zangfu. According to Taoist teachings, the Heart and Shen have an intrinsic push for completing what we were meant to do in life. This recorded seminar* will deepen your knowledge of Taoist acupuncture so that you may help your patients fulfill their destiny.

You will learn about the 9 Heart Pains, their emergence when one is not consciously evolving in life, the symptoms that manifest, and the 9 acupuncture points that influence these pains. Jeffrey will explore the "how" by helping patients resolve the 9 Heart Pains, thus bringing them to a place in life where they are both an Alchemist (worker of change) and a Sage (someone who is comfortable within themselves and accepts the world as is), thereby fulfilling their destiny and manifesting the highest level of health.

Jeffrey's 9 Heart Pains class gives much-needed context to so many other classes that are great, but focus only on protocols. This course goes over the basic precepts that I wish I had learned in acupuncture school. Excellent primer or review, and the perfect balance of 'how' and the underpinning 'why'.
