DESCRIPTION
Wu Shen, the Five Spirits, make up the Taoist map of the human psyche. The system provides a mythical view of the nervous system and forms the basis of Chinese medical psychology. The Five Spirits also describe a precise and efficient technology for psycho-spiritual transformation. While this ancient system is recognized by scholars as an integral part of the cannon of Taoist and traditional Chinese medical literature, it is under-emphasized in standard TCM curriculum. In this workshop, I will draw from translations of classical texts, etymological interpretations of ancient characters, close readings of Taoist alchemical treatises, and clinical examples from my practice of Alchemical Acupuncture in order to deepen our understanding of the Five Spirits and the unique insights they offer us about the true meaning of health.
