The effects of the Mind over the Body have been clearly emphasized in Classical Chinese Medicine for at least 10 centuries. Mind-sets and mental attitudes influence the human responses to the outer world, manifesting as emotions and classified as the inner causes of disease. Understanding the structure of the conscious and subconscious parts of the psyche and unravelling the psychological mechanisms of “Belief systems” and helping to change these in a regular TCM setting is to treat the “Hidden Roots of Disease”.

Hun and Po are among the key concepts of Chinese Medicine; they are presented here by Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée through their characters, their uses and meanings in classical Chinese texts and in medical texts, and with their main correlated notions. Key sentences and excerpts are studied directly from the source texts including discussion of their practical applications. Among the Five Aspects of the Spirit (shen), the Hun souls are the spiritual and intelligent aspects, associated with Heaven, the Immaterial and with the Liver; the Po souls are the corporeal and sentient aspects, associated with Earth, the body and with the Lung. This recorded course covers all of these concepts.
