The Heart Shén and Pericardium: Their Connection to Mental and Emotional Health

Speaker:

In Chinese medicine, the Emperor Heart, the Heart Shén, and the Pericardium (or Xīn Bāo) are three of the more fascinating symbols when it comes to understanding a person’s mental and emotional health or dis-ease.

The Heart is the Emperor organ, therefore, is in charge of everything. This includes the brain, as well as hormones associated with emotions, such as dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. Plus, the Heart houses the Shén.

The Heart Shén encompasses all of our emotions, memory, consciousness, thinking, and sleep. There is no equivalent in Western medicine.

The Pericardium, or Xīn Bāo, is translated variously as ‘Heart’s Embrace’, ‘Heart Shield’, ‘Heart Wrap’, ‘Heart’s Bodyguard’, ‘Court Jester’, or the physical, and meta-physical ‘Heart Protector’. The Heart as Emperor needs protection. The Pericardium provides this, both as physical protection (Heart’s Bodyguard), and mental support (Court Jester).

When you are looking to treat a patient for mental and emotional turmoil, you need to decide which of these three symbols to treat. Do you try and treat them all at once? Is this even a good idea? Is it better to start with one and work through each symbol over a series of treatments?

This workshop will introduce the Emperor Heart, Heart Shén, and the Pericardium. We will also spend time discussing how best to treat these symbols. There will also be practical treatment options provided, along with case studies. Join me for this fascinating workshop on mental and emotional health!

Goals and Objectives:
1. Have a much greater understanding of the Emperor Heart, the Heart Shén and the Pericardium (Xīn Bāo), through both ancient and modern thinking.
2. Understand the various forms of diagnoses that can apply for the Emperor Heart, the Heart Shén and the Pericardium (Xīn Bāo).
3. More confidently diagnose and treat patients for the Emperor Heart, the Heart Shén and the Pericardium (Xīn Bāo).
4. Have a greater insight into the importance of acupuncture point combinations.
5. Feel like they now have the tools to construct their own acupuncture point combinations for the Emperor Heart, the Heart Shén and the Pericardium (Xīn Bāo).
6. Have been taken through Chinese medicine concepts that are new to them; something they had forgotten they knew and are therefore reminded of again; or for consolidating knowledge already known.
