Time & Location
About the Event
Assessing Destiny: the art of constitutional diagnosis in Chinese medicine.
In Chinese medicine one’s constitution and how it is unfolding is determined primarily through observation: long considered one of the pillars of diagnosis. In this seminar, Dr. Yuen will teach methods first of assessing the yin factors of the constitution: assessing one's face (heaven), body (earth) and the hands (humanity) and then the yang factors of how the constitution is expressing itself through the colors. By utilizing constitutional diagnostic methods, we are able to further differentiate pathology from physiology and have a much clearer idea of prognosis. The insights gained through constitutional assessment allows us to refine our understanding of how pathology is likely to progress, and how to make changes. As one’s health is intimately connected with one’s psychological and environmental circumstances, prognostication based on constitutional assessment can be an important tool to help patients prevent unfavorable outcomes.
Day 1: Morphology I: constitutional factors as represented in the face
Day 2: Morphology II: constitutional factors as represented in the hands and palms
Day 3: Morphology III: Constitutional factors as represented in the body
Day 4: Cases/practical day

**Please note that this and all other seminars given by AUCM are recorded. Methods used may include audio, video or still photography. Because audience members ask questions or participate as subjects in the seminars, and because recording may include audience members, AUCM requires that, as a precondition to signing up for any AUCM sponsored classes, all attendees consent, without restriction, to being recorded in whatever form recording is occurring by AUCM at the seminar. Attendees must further agree that all rights, including all intellectual property rights, to such recordings (and to all derivative works of such recordings in whatever form), shall belong exclusively to AUCM. Attendees will not be compensated in any way for providing the above permission or for releasing any rights to recordings; rather it is a precondition to attend the seminars.
***For Livestream Participants: While we are taking reasonable precautions to keep the live stream video up and running (including redundant connections, computers, etc.) there is always a possibility of technical failure. In the event of a technical failure, any parts that are not streamed properly will be made available to the live stream participants as soon as we are able to get the recorded video uploaded to Vimeo within a months time. If they are small areas that are not demonstrations, we may upload audio only so we can get it up quickly. Due to the additional expenses we have in offering this, we are unable to offer any refunds based on technical problems. However those signed up as live stream participants will be able to view any missed video online. We do not have plans to offer this series for CEU"s online at the moment, therefore, live stream may be the only way to participate remotely in these classes.
