Didactic Workshop Days 2019

The Bird Physician

The Bird Physician

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Didactic Workshop Days take place as part of week-long teaching clinics. You are welcome at the workshop as a single event or as part of the clinical week. The study of the classics is rooted in the treatment of patients and the ethics of medical practice. Laura weaves lecture, questions, work with the Classics and clinical stories to awaken the inspiration and the disciplines to be able to work at the level of the 5 Spirits.  She teaches theory of the Officials and Channels, the energetics of points/protocols and the relationship of true and xie qi. She works with the group of students actively inside of the patient/practitioner relationship. Ethics of practice are emphasized and challenged, to develop greater stability and depth of service. 

  • What is meant by the level of disease, the potential for health?

  • What is meant by diagnosing and then treating at the level of the spirit?

  • How do we become instruments of this discipline?

  • How does one train in a tradition of medicine that works in the miracle of authenticity? When potential and pathology are addressed at the same point?

Part of every workshop is interactive, practicing our capacity to relate with each other via the spirits and the 5 energetics, how to become instruments of the causative factor at the level of the Body, Mind and Spirit. The group is both practitioner and patient as the energetics come alive.  Laura commonly uses the last 2 hours of the day for active clinical treatment, utilizing the teaching of the day.  NCCAOM approved PDA's are offered for these Workshop Days (including 2 pda's for ethics requirements.)

“The yang qi is like the sun in heaven. When it loses its place, life is broken and the being no longer shines. Whether the heavenly influx is regularly distributed depends on the solar radiance; thus the yang soars upwards and ensures the defense of the exterior.”  SuWen 3

    CONTENT: The 13 Servants of Life and Death

    “The Great Acupuncturist is an artist and a wise person with a generous heart. The Tradition has initiated her into the mystery, and he stands before the door of all wonders. Her hand is guided to the “places” of the body where the Spirits are rooted in the crossing of the breaths. this clever and helping hand is surrendered completely to the Spirits that dwell within the acupuncturist. Her science is monumental, his dexterity supple, her touch like that of a blind musician, his heart makes magnanimous leaps. The movements of the needle receive their quality from all of this. The needle goes in to meet the breaths of a patient whose immediate condition and appearance have been recognized.” p.80 Rooted in Spirit Claude Larre, S.J. & Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée

    To treat disease one has to go to the root" SuWen Chapter 5 

We will work to open our senses, to engage Colour, Odor, Sound and Emotion for the diagnosing and treating of the 5 Energetics. The group will be practitioner and patient. What is the Causative Factor? How does one practice and train to become an instrument of the CF?  Part of every workshop is interactive, practicing our capacity to relate with each other via the spirits and the 5 energetics.
