Course Description

This seminar will discuss the Chinese medicine view of the psyche and the treatment of depression.  This will be done by describing in detail the nature and clinical application of the Five Spiritual Aspects, the Hun, Po, Shen, Yi and Zhi.  These five aspects of the Zang organs constitute the ancient Chinese view of the psyche. We will discuss the traditional 7 emotions (joy, anger, sadness, grief, fear, worry and pensiveness) and their pathology but it will also challenge the generally accepted view of the emotions as causes of disease. Several relevant clinical strategies will be presented with the acupuncture and herbal treatment. We will also present a new angle in the use of the Gall-Bladder channel and the Shao Yang in general.
