Eastern Medicine

This event is a public event
Course Overview:
Eastern Medicine focuses on developing a holistic understanding of the functional organization, interconnections, and most importantly, the relationship between the various energy systems. This will redefine the practical approach to therapy of all energy-based healthcare systems including BodyTalk.

Course Description
The treatment and understanding of the bodymind through the energy systems has been practiced for centuries. It is currently enjoying a significant increase in popularity because of the way biophysics has redefined science in its understanding of how the body works.

There is, however, a significant weakness in this study. Once you start examining the systems you realize how fragmented the knowledge is. Each system of energy medicine is practiced as a isolated system in its own right in most cases. Sometimes it is called integrative medicine or holistic medicine. The “holistic” description is really just implying that it is different to the basic scientific medical model and is working at a higher frequency level. Many of these systems can be integrated into other systems or even into the medical model however; this does not mean they are “integrated” medicine in the classic sense of the word. A truly integrated healthcare model will incorporate all of the energy systems including the medical model.

For example, in Chinese Medicine you may learn that the term Qi refers to ‘life-force’ and then later study the Indian Systems and learn that the term Prana is referring to the same idea, or is it? And what about Kundalini, where does it fit into the mix? Similarly, you may learn about the meridians of Chinese acupuncture and then discover that Japanese acupuncture has a different viewpoint on how they operate. Or the fact that in Chinese Medicine there is a great deal of information on energy and blood (Stagnant Qi/Blood) this information can be very useful when prescribing herbs but has little application within energy medicine.
