Mind/Body Connection and Developmental Stages of Chinese Medicine

While each human body is unique all are wired similarly in how stress, digestion, aches, and pains are handled. Our genetic blueprint dictates how our bodies, minds, and emotions are all vitally intertwined. Lucky for us this blueprint has been mapped and after this class you may have the tools to read them clearly. Our mind/body connection is very intricate but at its core very simple and easy to understand. This course can be life changing for many people as they learn the "whys and wherefores".

You can enrich your practice, your life and the lives of others by learning how to read the patterns of development. You will learn how to feel the differences in tension inside each person's body and assess whether it comes from a mental, emotional, or physical source and how to apply it in your practice. This class also offers exercises that can help facilitate your own healing and understanding of the mind/body connection.
