Five Element Consciousness: The Spirit Behind Chinese Medicine
A Three-Part Webinar Series with Nan Lu, OMD
Why do so many of today’s challenging and chronic health issues respond so well to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)? What is the source of the infinite wisdom of this unique medical system? What is its relationship to the science of modern giants like Albert Einstein? The answers to these provocative questions, and more, become clear when you understand the fundamentals of TCM, and the body, mind and spirit levels on which they can be applied.
Now, for the first time, Nan Lu, OMD, a Qigong master and doctor of TCM, offers his unique and profound perspective on the fundamental principles and theories of this ancient medicine and the modern science theories that reflect its wisdom. Over a series of three fascinating evenings, his not-to-be-missed lectures will lay a solid foundation for the continued study of TCM.
Energy and the Universal Law of Yin/Yang
All of life reflects the visible and invisible energies that compose the dynamic dance of Yin/Yang. Everything is connected to Yin/Yang. If you understand the principle of Yin and Yang you can understand life! It is the most important and mysterious of principles that reflects the underlying operation of this reality.
Meridian Energy Pathways
Meridians are the invisible energy channels, or pathways, that allow us to connect with the universe. They form an invisible energy network that not only connects all of our physical structures, from atoms to organs, but also gifts us with our connection to Spirit. It is meridians that give acupuncture and the other modalities of TCM their power and ability to send Qi and healing messages throughout the body.
The Five Elements as a Connective Framework
The theory of Five Elements has its origins in the deep spiritual practice of ancient energy masters. This profound blueprint allows us to see what modern science now sees: everything is connected; everything exists in relationship with everything else. Studying the Five Element theory is a lifelong process that opens up extraordinary insights to seeing the connections that exist all around us. In this lecture, you will learn how your body connects to the Universe and Nature, how your organs are impacted by your mind, as well as an appreciation of Five Element consciousness, a profound way to see your life’s connections.
