DESCRIPTION
The po–the corporeal soul and spirit of the Metal Element – is the least understood of the five spirits, and yet it may well be the most important for healing and transformation at this time on the planet. In addition, the po soul and its accompanying lower soul, the zhi – the ancestral will and spirit of the Water Element – are often misunderstood and neglected in modern acupuncture practice. The focus of this talk will be on the po and the zhi and their relationship to practitioner self-care and health. We will look at how neglecting the needs of these lower yin souls can result in self-sabotage, self-deprivation, addiction and the unconscious repetition of inherited response patterns. Conversely, we will discuss how attending to this aspect of our being opens us to a boundless source of wisdom and power, and ultimately allows us to manifest more fully our work as healers. Drawing from personal and clinical experience, ancient Chinese texts and modern research in epigenetics as well as the wisdom of ancient alchemy, we will explore how we can transform the “lead” or unconscious expression of the lower spirits into the “gold” of self-awareness, vitality and self-empowerment. You will receive concepts, tools and practices that can be used for your own self-care and offered to your patients before, during and after pregnancy.
