DECEMBER 5 - 7, 2020 (SAT - MON)

Shamanic Origins of Classical Chinese Medicine: Manipulating the External Terrain

In this class, Jeffrey Yuen will explore the shamanistic techniques of external manipulation and how we can influence the vibrations of the surrounding environment. As with internal training, the manipulation of the external environment had different levels. First, we explore the manipulation of the external environment through vibration, specifically through ritual movements. Next the prescribed external movements are replaced by spontaneous movements that are generated from internal cultivation. Finally the cultivator realizes that the border between the internal and external (the physical body), is an illusion and that internal and external are one. At this stage the shaman was believed to be able to directly manipulate the external environment merely through thought or intention. This training formed the basis of the Chinese medical technique of using intention within acupuncture and other techniques. It also formed the basis for Chinese medical qigong. 

While attendance at prior classes may be helpful, each weekend covers specific aspects of shamanic contributions to Chinese medicine and is a subject in and of itself.

**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.

****Taping/Recording of the lectures will not be permitted.
