About the Event
Anxiety and Trauma During Troubled Times -- a Chinese Medical Perspective.
Since the dawn of civilization, communities have endured wars, famine, catastrophes, and epidemics, while others have individually struggled with abuse (such as familial, spousal, or substance), illnesses, tragedies, and uncertainties -- all of which have resulted in anxieties, worries, and depression.
Concomitant with these communal and personal issues have been the role of the prevailing medical institutions and how they therapeutically accommodate and work these concerns. While Chinese medicine focuses on the person afflicted with these anxieties that can abruptly or gradually lead to traumas, it also addresses the implications of the precipitating events and circumstances that have resulted and manifested into these psychosocial afflictions.
Ranging from the understanding of the concepts of fate, destiny, and karma to thoughtful choices made by individuals and groups/tribes/communities that can provoke anxiety, the ensuing realizations or "solutions" are entrenched in changing consciousness.
Such approaches within Chinese medicine have differed depending on the specific traditions or the level of imbalance that the afflicted individual is operating from. This seminar will look at the long history of Chinese medicine and how they deal with the pertinent situations that inherently challenge all societies and their citizens to gain a deeper perspective in working with individuals during these troubled times.
The role of Chinese medical modalities (herbs, acupuncture, stones, and essential oils) will be discussed so as to provide different clinical options that can best serve anxious beings.
