Becoming an Instrument of Healing

The Essential Skills of Classical Five Element Acupuncture


November 11-12, 2017 

9am-5pm | 16 CEUs

Presidio, San Francisco 

Reconnect with intuition and empathy by exploring the principles of Classical Five Element Acupuncture. In this two-day workshop led by three master practitioners and a scholar of Chinese medical philosophy, we will inquire into these questions and others: 

  • What is health? What is healing?
  • How do they differ in Classical Chinese and Western Medicine?
  • History of healing: what has survived and what has been lost?
  • The element metal and correspondences
