Shadow Resolution in Chinese Medicine: Streaming

The 七 情 qi qing/seven emotions of humanity originate from attraction and aversion; if there is excessive inclination towards one of them there is imbalance, the prevailing of one and defeat of the other;
神 shen and 志 zhi easily end up in disorder. If 神 shen and 志 zhi are imbalanced evils establish themselves as a result, and 鬼 gui/ghosts are generated in the heart. Therefore one who has aversion inside sees
aversion, he who has envy sees envy, he who has suspicion will see suspicion. He who has trepidation will see trepidation, and this not only in illnesses, but in dreams. This means if 志 zhi has aversion for
something it thinks is on the outside, qi and blood are disordered internally, and it is as though there were spirits and ghosts.” Zhang Jing-yue (1563–1640)

We may understand repression as resistance to wholesome integrative change. The consequences of denial are written as symptom in both flesh and function. Shadow as stasis in early developmental
stages impedes the healthy consolidation of later stages of development.

In this Online class we will examine the dynamics of repression as they manifest in multiple forms of shadow in the terms of Chinese physiology. We will focus on identifying shadow and its resolution through the
therapeutic relationship, herbal medicine, and acupuncture. Shadow will be differentiated according to the Five-Elements and their related pathogens.

We will take a deep dive into the subtle realms of Chinese medicine and this course will be developmental for those who edge with it.
