About this course

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

  • Dream significance according to the ancient classical texts

  • Physiological and psychological interpretation of dreams and therapeutic applications

  • Clinical examples
