Classical Chinese Herbal Medicine


Chinese herbal medicine is an immensely complex and powerful modality. In modern times, the typical methods of introducing Chinese herbal medicine have been streamlined and simplified and are heavily influenced by the Western pharmaceutical model. However, this is not how herbal medicine used to be taught. 

Traditionally, if you wanted to become an herbalist, you needed a much deeper understanding of herbs that goes beyond simple categorizations or memorizing book knowledge. The initial stages of learning involved creating a more intimate understanding of herbs. Where possible the apprentice would gain experience in identifying and gathering herbs, carefully observing not only the herb itself, but the environment it lives in. The apprentice would also take the various herbs internally and observe one’s own experiences with them.

While having a more intimate knowledge of each herb was important, much of an apprentices time was spent observing and assisting the master. First, the apprentice would observe how herbs worked together in formulas. Just as you can’t know a person until they interact with others, different qualities of herbs come out depending on their interaction with other herbs. The same is true as different people take the same herbal combination. The person is like an additional herb to the energetic environment you are creating with the combination. Preparation (pao zhi) of herbs was another skill that was simultaneously cultivated. 

This year long program (16 sessions) is designed to communicate herbal medicine in as close to the traditional way as we can. As Jeffrey stated, “the goal of this course is to teach herbs the way they were traditionally taught …the way I learned."

PAST EVENT

JULY 24 - 27, 2020

Divergent Channels in the Treatment of Acute Infectious Diseases (Fri & Mon)


According to the Huang Di Nei Jing, wind is the cause of ‘a hundred diseases’. While wind can be caused by multiple etiologies, one of the main etiologies is infectious. During an acute invasion, if the body is not strong enough to fight the pathogen directly, it directs the pathogen into areas of latency. One of the more important ways this happens is via the divergent channel system. The divergent channel system is a safety mechanism the body has evolved to deal with severe acute illness, and can also be used to deal with accumulated latency.  


Jeffrey will discuss the diagnosis and treatment of aggressive or deadly infectious diseases that challenge the constitution. Some examples will be taken from recent diseases such as the 2019-nCoV (recent Wuhan Coronavirus) and SARS as well as the management of deadly complications of diseases such as sepsis and encephalitis.


Essential Oils: Pharmacopeia Update based on the Experience of Jeffrey Yuen (Sat & Sun)


Essential oils are the essence or Jing of plants. Through the doctrine of signatures, they are very useful in treating pathologies related to the jing, especially working with pathogens that directly threaten the yuan or constitutional level. As such, the oils can help us not only guide out or transform physical pathology, but also can influence our phenotypical expression and how we experience and interface with the world (our temperament).


In this class, Jeffrey Yuen will discuss new additions to the materia medica of essential oils based on a wide variety of oils that have become more commonly available in recent years. He will discuss physical properties of these newer oils as well as his clinical experience in how they can be used to influence the constitution, physical pathology and one’s temperament.
