Alchemy of the 8 Extraordinary Vessels: 

Promoting Health, Creativity and Purpose 

 This class focuses on applying 8 Extraordinary Vessel treatments to help our patients cultivate health, including the ability to have purposeful self-expression in life.  The extraordinary vessels can access a person’s inner workings, allowing them to connect with what is important to them in their lives.  People often function at levels of qi and blood deficiency or qi and blood stagnation, related to the inability to align with an outlet for their authentic self-expression in their lives.  This class will look at the Heart-Kidney Axis, with the heart knowing our purpose and passion and the kidneys housing our will and drives to create our lives.  We will look at the themes of the 9 heart palaces to explore how we get stuck  in our lives and how these heart palaces also hold the keys to gently moving forward with peace and purpose in our lives.  This class will look at patterns and acupuncture treatmentsiii related to the 8 Extraordinary Vessels and will include acupuncture point protocols, experiential exercises, qigong, acupressure and guided meditations.
