Eastern School Of Acupuncture And Traditional Medicine* is pleased to welcome:

JEFFREY YUEN

Course Topic: Significance of the Ji-Spine in Chinese Medicine

Presenter: Jeffrey Yuen comes from two Daoist traditions and his training in Chinese medicine comes from Daoist priest Yu Wen and Gong Song-Liu. 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 served on their Finalization Committee.

Program Description: The Ji-Spine is considered one of the most important gu-bones within the study of Chinese medicine. Ranging from its influence over other skeletal joints and articulations to its relationship with the Du Mai-Governor Vessel (Sea of Yang), the Spine has been classified as a qi fu-extraordinary/curious bowel and as a constitutional vessel. Also conceptualized as the "tree of life," the Spine is depicted as a medium for the San Jiao mechanism in the dissemination of ming-life and its yundestiny, where each vertebra can impact an individual's genetic disposition. Ascending into the nao-brain – the seat of the big Shen-Spirit, the Spine can be "opened" through the application of sound, light, and touch. This weekend seminar will focus on the importance of the Ji-Spine and how to tap into its qi, not only for the treatment of diseases, but also for spiritual cultivation.

Date & Time: July 30 – 31, 2022 (10 – 5:30pm) IN-PERSON OR LIVE-STREAMING OPTION
