Über dieses Seminar
Dream interpretation has been an integral part of Classical Chinese Diagnosis as evidenced in the Neijing and Ling Shu.
Through dreams, the Hun-Ethereal soul helps release accumulated pathogenic factors from external climatic causes, dietary or internal non-expressed emotions.
The ancient Chinese understanding of dreams combined with modern concepts of neuroscience and psychiatry provide a very powerful diagnostic and therapeutic tool.
This workshop covers:
• Physiology of Dreaming (Western and Chinese)
• The role of the Liver and Hun in the dreaming process
