Overview

People often suffer as they die, and we as acupuncturists can help in the assistance of their death. We help them relax and let go; this softening offers release from their fears and anxieties. Acupuncture in hospice care allows the person the opportunity to participate consciously in their own dying process.

Yin and Yang and the Fertile Space in Between

Overview

As practitioners of Chinese medicine, we are quick to celebrate the “ancient” or “traditional” or “classical” roots of our beloved medicine, but all too often ignore or fail to comprehend the full implications of the ancient wisdom. What does the Yellow Emperor mean by that famous exhortation from the Great Treatise on the Resonant Manifestations of Yin and Yang that is usually translated as “to treat disease, seek the root!”?

Sabine looks forward to exploring with you the full potential of Chinese medicine in the midst of a pandemic that so clearly reveals the limitations of biomedicine and the extractive mindset of our modern world, at a time when needling patients is not an option in most parts of the world. Let us take a closer look at this saying in its context, and explore what this really means for the contemporary practice of Chinese medicine. Ultimately, we shall contemplate with Laozi that “The way that can be used as a way (or in other words, the Dao that can be taught) is not the constant way.”

Overview

This webinar highlights a recent video and accompanying blog (www.sportsmedicineacupuncture.com/blog) featuring Matt Callison L.Ac and Brian Lau AP, C.SMA as they develop, design and work through the logistical issues of a telemedicine assessment and treatment prescription on a patient with low back pain. The intent of this webinar is to provide acupuncturists with ideas to help their patients during these challenging and fast-changing times of COVID-19. The current surge in demand for telemedicine consultations, coupled with the fact that most practitioners have little experience in long distance consultation, prompted us to release this webinar as a learning tool, so practitioners could see our process.

The Gate of All Wonders

Applying Taoist Philosophy in Good Times and Bad

with Matthew Bauer

Recording

from April 4, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Taoist philosophy came of age with the teachings of Lao Tzu (Laozi) and Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) during the tumultuous “Warring States” period. In this talk, we will consider the teachings of Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu and the symbolism of the I-Ching (Yi-Book of Changes) and how those relate to the “natural mind”. Understanding the natural vs. unnatural mind is the Taoist key to navigating life.

After years of devoting himself to helping educate people about acupuncture, this is Matthew first class that delves deeply into his decades-long study and practice of Taoism.
