GEM AND STONE ELIXIRS FOR PERSONS WITH SHEN DISTURBANCES
(Lecture Saturday & Sunday)
Gems and stones have played a major role in Classical Chinese Medicine, with descriptions of their properties outlined in the major material medicas (Ben Cao). In these texts, stones are considered living, evolving entities. More importantly, their density and solidity represent greater permanence in healing and greater stabilization in energetic intentions and therapies than do other modalities. They can also serve as chelating agents to draw out toxins from the body-mind-spirit continuum. In the first other two days of this seminar, Daoist priest Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen will discuss the creation, composition, and use of gem and stone elixirs to treat persons with shen disturbances, similar to the way most acupuncturists create and use herbal medicines with their patients. He will delineate various strategies using gems and stones in working with persons with depressive, anxiety, obsessive compulsive, post-traumatic stress, attention deficit, bipolar, and personality disorders, among other problems.
GEMSTONES PRACTICUM (Monday)
On Monday, Dr. Yuen will demonstrate the clinical uses of gem and stone elixirs in treating patients or participants presenting with shen disturbances including depressive, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorders. The practicum will be limited to 30 participants.
