JEFFREY YUEN

Course Topic: Influence of Shamanism into Chinese Medicine

Presenter: Jeffrey Yuen comes directly from a Daoist lineage and trained under the Daoist priest, Yuen, learning among other healing arts, Chinese herbal medicine. Yuen was invited by NCCAOM to be among a group of prominent practitioners, to write and review questions during the development of the NCCAOM herbal exam and also served on their Finalization Committee.

Program Description: All roots of medicine can be traced to shamanism – the process by which an initiate or cultivator gains access to different realms of consciousness – and the revelations that are carried forth from such realms into the process of healing. Recognizing the potential inherent in every healer to draw upon such realms, the focus of this seminar is to introduce and explore with its participants facets of shamanic journeys and its influence over the eventual systemization of early Chinese medicine. Utilizing and explaining the shamanic tools, such as visualization, chanting, drumming, and bodily movements, participants will be able to add other repertoires to their healing modalities. More importantly, it is the intention of this seminar to deepen the understanding of the practice of Chinese acupuncture and herbs.

Date & Time: May 16 – 17, 2020 (10 – 5pm)
Attendance for both days is required in order to receive PDA credits from NCCAOM
