- The Use of Gems/Stones and Essential Oils in the Treatment of the 8 Extra Channels:

The eight extraordinary channel system is the most fundamental energetic system of our bodies. It is responsible for the genesis of life and is intimately involved in the creation and management of all fundamental bodily functions. Consequently, the ability to work with this system can be very important in a wide variety of serious diseases affecting the deepest layers of our bodies. In this class, Jeffrey Yuen will focus on two of the most important methods for working with the eight extraordinary channels: using the jing of the earth (gems and stones) and the jing of the plant kingdom (essential oils).

On Friday, Jeffrey will review the theory of gems and stones and essential oils from an eight extra channel perspective, including a variety of delivery methods and application. In addition, he will elucidate the remarkable properties of particular oils and stones in the treatment of eight extra channel pathologies, including some new oils that have only recently been made available to the public.

On Monday, there will be a practicum where eight extra channel pulses will be reviewed and students will practice identifying constitutional imbalances and helping to formulate treatments. As a practical exercise, students are also encouraged to select jewelry or “perfumes” to balance out one’s constitution. Jeffrey will be going around the class and helping refine students’ diagnostic skills and helping in their selections of gems/stones and oils.

- Herbal Preparation - Pao Zhi:

While most of us learn the functions and properties of herbs, obtaining the desired function of herbs often requires knowledge not contained in classic sources. In modern times, this knowledge is loosely classified under the term “Pao Zhi”, however from a Classical standpoint, it is more accurately described as an alchemical process whereby a variety of methods are utilized to transform an herb into a more effective catalyst for a particular function. This process can include what we now call Pao Zhi, but the repertoire was much broader. In the Daoist tradition, preparation techniques were often categorized under the 5 elements and included a wide array of firing times and different ways to prepare the herbs for consumption which could include burying, fermenting, distilling and so forth. Astrological timing also plays an important role and certain functions are enhanced when prepared on certain days or at certain times. Incantations were also used to help accentuate certain properties of herbs and to help transfer the intention of the practitioner.

In this class, Jeffrey will discuss many of the details of the classical and modern preparation of herbs, essential oils and stones. He will discuss both preparation methods we can use today, as well as historic methods of preparation not commonly utilized today (such as preparation with bodily excretions, heavy metals, etc.). Facility permitting, Jeffrey will also demonstrate select preparation methods.
