Share TCM Qi from I-Ching Perspective

Event Details

About the Seminar:

This two days course explores the definition of Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM) qi from the perspective of Chinese classics, I-Ching and Nei Jing. We will first introduce the basic theory behind the I-Ching and explain the definition of TCM qi by giving supporting statements from the Nei Jing and examples of TCM qi. Applying the concepts of the trigrams (Ba Gua), we will explain the relationships between jing, qi shen and how they interact with each other based on I-Ching terminology. Using similar concepts with Four Images and Ba Gua, we will also compare and contrast Wei qi and Ying qi and examine how they relate to the five organs. Next, we will study how yin and yang of blood and qi affect the physiology of pulse and channels using examples of modern science. Finally, students will be taken on a journey to explore the Qi in Chinese Culture and its application to TCM. At the end of the class, students will be able to understand the basic meaning of I-Ching trigrams and their relationship with TCM; through which the abstract meanings of TCM Qi can be defined, symbolized, and understood with the aid of the supportive statements from the Nei Jing.
