Zang/Fu and The Officials IX — Pi Zang and Wei Fu — 2.5 CEU's
Marrying Chapter 8 of the Nei Jing Su Wen with the details of Zang/Fu theory is the essence of this course series. Part Nine reveals the details of the energetic physiology of the Pi Zang and Wei Fu.
When Yin/Yang, Wu Hsing and The Substances are seen in light of their mutually interdependent existence, each aspect reveals more about the other. This enables greater facility with clinical discrimination and critical thinking.
This course, followed by 'Patterns of Disharmony,' represents the core of Jack M. Daniel’s vision of the congruence of Yin/Yang and the Wu Hsing. Yin/Yang and Wu Hsing (The Five Elements) arise simultaneously in a common source. As such, they never are, nor should they have been, separated or divided from one another. These siblings, seemingly separated in recent years, have been reunited at last. Come join us as we penetrate to the heart of Jack’s detailed discourse on the essence of whole-person Chinese medicine: 'Symptoms and Signs Constitute the Shadow of the Disharmony. '
Using textual study and references, enriched by abundant notes, challenged by a quiz, this serious academic course will establish the distinctions necessary to negotiate the difficult clinical cases found in everyday practice with swiftly growing competence and confidence. The killer of skill is doubt. Take this opportunity to leave your doubts behind when you enter the treatment room.
In fulfilling our objectives, participants in this course will:
• Develop their understanding of Yin/Yang and its relationship to the Zang/Fu, The Officials and the Patterns of Disharmony.
• Demonstrate a high level of understanding of the Substances: Shen, Qi, Blood, Jing and Body Fluids and their relationships to the Zang/Fu & The Officials, and the Wu Hsing.
• Show insightful levels of understanding of the theory of the Zang/Fu and its relationship to the Sheng, Kê and Cheng Sequences of the Wu Hsing, illuminating the understanding of the Patterns of Disharmony.
• Become deeply familiar with the intimate relationship between the functions of The Officials, the generation and economy of Qi and the other Substances and the theory of the Zang/Fu.
In Part Nine we introduce the details the Pi Zang and Wei Fu as shown through Chapter Eight of the Nei Jing Su Wen.
