Event Host


Overview

Part I of The Nectar of Plants features discussion on the relationship between a person and their environment, a relationship Chinese medicine calls “wei” qi. This relationship is pivotal for how we manifest strong immunity and healthy digestion, so we’ll go in depth in how to use essential oils for all kinds of respiratory disorders and digestive disorders. We’ll also look at how we can cultivate a strong and healthy relationship with our world, manifesting flexibility, resilience, integrity and strength in all kinds of challenging environments including the pandemic! You’ll learn the basics of how to safely use essential oils, how to use them to build immunity, support healthy respiration and digestion as well as how to relieve respiratory or digestive distress of all kinds. Part I features oils of Eucalyptus, Lavender, Myrtle, Tea Tree, Patchouli and many more.

Self-Compassion: Softening Into Our True Nature

with Thomas Richardson

Recording

from May 15, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

In response to the suffering and trauma that is inherent in life, many of us create defense mechanisms that can harden into deeply conditioned patterns of how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us. To return to our true nature of compassion, wisdom, and love, we must cultivate self-compassion through consciously deciding to soften – softening our physical body, emotions, and minds. As we do so, our innate nature effortlessly arises. This is a talk followed by a guided meditation.

How the Classical Chinese View on Emotions Can Help Us Today

with Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée

Recording

from April 13, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

As human beings, we cannot be without emotions. At the same time, emotions disturb us to the point that we act no more with reason or intelligence. When a situation triggers an emotion, it is usually an important matter needing an accurate reaction, true to life; and it is precisely that what the emotions prevent us to do. The classical Chinese medicine’s approach of emotions, specially agitation and anxiety, exposes what happens inside ourselves, in our heart-mind, as well as in our blood and qi, our organs, and gives leads to regulate ourselves and to come back to a more balanced assessment of the situation and efficient action.

Dietary Support for Wei Qi for Covid-19 Prevention or Maintenance

with Andrew Sterman

Recording

from April 6, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Boost The Host, Terrain Medicine, that is my motto. Much dietary advice in the time of corona offers foods to “supercharge immunity” or “help kill viruses” (or denies what diet can contribute altogether), but let’s spend an hour or so discussing the foundations of Wei Qi integrity and specific foods that implement those strategies. We need a clear and comprehensive strategy that the body knows how to respond to, based on classical teachings of Chinese medicine (using easy to find foods in today’s constrained market options). Andrew will present an overview, then we can discuss specifics for differing phases of covid illness and recovery.

The Relationship of the Bladder Channel and Intrinsic (Exercise-Induced) Asthma; and How to Treat It.

with Janice Walton-Hadlock

Recording

from April 1, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Recent research with people with intrinsic asthma shows that they all have a blockage or pathological re-routing somewhere along the Urinary Bladder, the shunt into the Kidney channel at UB-40, or the portion of the Kidney channel that runs from the knee to the adrenal gland: the route of the UB channel divergence. Restoring the correct channel qi flow throughout this route terminates not just a person’s asthma attack, but ends the person’s tendency for asthma. Period.
