Understanding the Hun, Po, Ling and Shen in Chinese Medical Practice

The Hun, Po, Ling and Shen are a fascinating part of Chinese medicine and one that is often over-looked or only approached in a superficial way. These aspects of the spirit and the mind are at the core of Daoist philosophy and the roots of Chinese medicine. Exploring the Hun, Po, Ling and Shen connects us to the most ancient ways of experiencing the world. It's a worldview where the forces of Heaven and Earth, astrology and ancestry, and psyche and soma come together in the human body.

In this class, students will learn how the Hun, Po, Ling and Shen are reflected in daily clinical practice and the roles that they play in health and sickness. We will look at how the Primary Channels and the 8 Extraordinary Channels reflect the interplay between the Hun and Po and the balance and cultivation of the Ling and Shen. We will learn how to recognize
dis-harmonies based in these aspects of the soul and mind. We will learn acupuncture points, point prescriptions and treatment strategies that address the Hun, Po, Ling and Shen.
