DECEMBER 2 - 5, 2022 (FRI - MON)

Topic: Wild/Western Herbs and Classical Chinese Medicine:

Classically, Chinese medicine used primarily local ingredients. This allowed the use of plants that had adapted specifically to the environmental challenges that were local to the patient. In modern times, Chinese medicine has become centralized and much of it is farmed ... being grown in ideal conditions and losing some of the potency and resilience traditionally found in wild herbs. These herbs are not only shipped across China but across the world, to areas where the plants are not indigenous. In this weekend, Jeffrey will be returning to the roots of classical herbal medicine and review ways in which we can effectively utilize local herbs within a Classical Chinese medicine paradigm. More specifically, Jeffrey will explore the expansion of the Chinese medicine herbal pharmacopia to include Western herbs, that are local to many of the practitioners in the West. In doing so, Jeffrey will review tastes, temperatures, channel affinities, properties, recommended dosages and safety guidelines to allow Chinese medicine practitioners to seamlessly incorporate Western herbal medicines into the framework of Classical Chinese medicine.

**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.
