Deepening Perspectives on Chinese Medicine: Read through Lonny Jarrett’s new text with the author

10/14/212-3/24 2022
Thursday Evenings: 8-9:30pm Eastern Time
I am pleased to offer this 12 session course guiding participants through my new text, Deepening Perspectives on Chinese Medicine. In this class we will examine Chinese medicine as an art and science of catalyzing human emergence. Each of the 12 sessions will consist of readings drawn from Deepening Perspectives, a 1 to 1.5 hour video presentation of me discussing the material to be watched at your leisure, and a 1.5 hour live Q & A session with me on the material.

My long association with Lonny Jarrett over the course of many years has afforded me some of the most satisfying discussions concerning Chinese medicine that I have had with anyone. I am grateful for his writing and teaching his thoughts to the world, especially those about “becoming” that he describes as an act rather than solely as a “process.” Lonny Jarrett is fashioning a brilliant paradigm built around an awareness of one’s freedom to choose (for what is higher) instantly through the intention to virtue. Lonny’s overarching dedication to improving the human condition was recognizable from our early conversations and seems from the outside to have been part of a “process” reaching the form as expressed so eloquently in this volume.

Lonny Jarrett's class changed the way I practice medicine. The class was so inspirational and life-changing that I took it twice. Lonny brings a depth to the medicine no matter what style of acupuncture we use (I practice French Energetics), and I am forever grateful to him. His teachings opened my heart and my mind. We travelled from Georgia and even though it is not close, the class was worth every effort we made. There is ongoing cultivation of depth and care through conversations on Lonny's website, nourishingdestiny.com. I highly recommend his two year course.

A Top-Down view of Five-Element Constitutional Diagnosis [LIVE STREAM]

SATURDAY 10/9 + SUNDAY 10/10 2021 9AM-5PM ET

The upper class of medicines . . . govern the nourishment of destiny and correspond to heaven. . . . If one wishes to prolong the years of life without aging, one should [use these].

The middle class of medicines govern the nourishment of one’s nature and correspond to man. . . . If one

The lower [class of] medicines . . . govern the treatment of illness and correspond to earth. If one wishes to remove cold, heat and [other] evil influences [from the body], to break accumulations, and to cure illnesses, one should base [one’s efforts] on [drugs listed in] the lower [class of this] manual.
– SHEN NONG BEN CAO

Clearly, for the author of the Shen Nong Ben Cao, China’s oldest herbal text, the highest aspect of healing involves helping the patient fulfill destiny in order to live out the years as allotted by heaven. 

Five-element constitutional type comprises the unconscious tint on the lens that we see the world through. It filters how we create meaning and come to embody it. Knowledge of constitution imparts a vision that allows us to see patients creating themselves in real time with an understanding of the conscious, and unconscious, forces at work.

In this course constitutional diagnosis will be examined as an organizing framework that yields deep insights into each patient’s destiny and path of healing. The imagery contained in the acupuncture point names  will be discussed as it relates to the points inner functions. We will cover the functional dynamics of the ­sheng and ke cycles to understand Chinese medicine as a fully holistic/integral science. Participation in this class is suitable for practitioners from any tradition and level of training who wish to deepen their perspective on their art.

Topics include:   

• Chinese medicine as a science of conscious awareness.

• Emotion, Virtue, and Vice of the Five-elements

• Destiny and Constitutional Type. 

• The Relationship Between Chinese Cosmology & Physiology.             

• Inner Functions of Acupuncture Points, Herbal formulas, and Point Combinations.  

• The Suggestive Process in treatment and the therapeutic relationship.

• Diagnosis by Color, Sound, Odor & Emotion.

• The Relationship between the Five-elements and Eight-Principles.

• Practical exercises in diagnosis.

“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of Universe.” — R. Buckminster Fuller

In this class we will examine medicine in the largest possible context.

Endorsements:

Lonny Jarrett’s Deepening Perspectives on Chinese Medicine is an extremely important book and marks something of a historic first. —Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision

Jarrett has truly written a manifesto of healing for our time. —Lorie Eve Dechar, author of Five Spirits

My long association with Lonny Jarrett over the course of many years has afforded me some of the most satisfying discussions concerning Chinese medicine that I have had with anyone.  —Leon Hammer, MD, author of Dragon Rises, Red Bird Flies

Lonny has successfully transcended both cultural and temporal bounds to provide a scholarly work that is rooted in the traditions but also creative, informative, and will mark a place in the development of medicine and consciousness.—William Morris, PhD, author of Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis

I know of no other person in our field who has unified the thought of Sri Aurobindo, Ken Wilbur, Zhuang Zi, and great physicians such as Sun Si-Miao so seamlessly. Perhaps at last, Huang Di, the Yellow Emperor, can be said to have engaged Western thought in full. This work deserves our full attention and commitment, so that we may add our insights for the coming era as well and bring Chinese medicine to full fruition as a world medicine par excellence. -Z’ev Rosenberg

If you have any spark or desire to take this class, find a way to make it happen. The time and money I've spent have been repaid a hundred times over in my confidence and cultivation as a practitioner and in my connection to a deep source of inspiration for practicing this medicine. Every weekend has been a transformational learning experience. Studying with Lonny has been the best decision I've made since deciding to go to acupuncture school! When I signed up, I had just moved to a new city and was seeing very few patients a week. But I made the leap, and I have no doubt it's been a big part of why I now have a thriving practice as I'm approaching our last weekend.
