Course Overview

Eastern Medicine focuses on developing a holistic understanding of the functional organization, the interconnections, and, most importantly, the relationships between the various energy systems of the body. There is a particular focus on Kundalini as the primary source of all the energy in the body as well as a focus on the 12 main meridians and 8 ancestral meridians. This highly in-depth course will redefine the practical approach to therapy of all energy-based healthcare systems, including BodyTalk.

Course Description

Treating the bodymind via the energy systems has been practiced for centuries. It is currently enjoying a significant increase in popularity because of the way biophysics has redefined science in its understanding of body physiology. There is, however, a significant weakness in this study. Upon examining the systems, we realize how fragmented the information is.

In most cases, each system of energy medicine is practiced as an isolated, closed system. Sometimes, it is called integrative or holistic medicine. The “holistic” label, however, merely implies that it is focusing outside of the somewhat limited parameters of allopathic medicine. In some instances, the energy systems are integrated with one another or even into the standard medical model. However, this does not mean they are “integrative” medicine in the truest sense of the word.

A truly integrated healthcare model must incorporate all of the energy systems, as well as wisdom from current medicine practices. This course will provide you with a:

Comparison of traditional medical systems
It will outline all the important knowledge of each system (Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, Kundalini, Chakras) that can be effectively utilized in all energy-based systems, particularly BodyTalk. This will also enhance your ability to intuitively discern treatment approaches.

Comprehensive investigation into Kundalini energy
It will examine Kundalini awakening, symptoms, dysfunction, uses in yoga, sources, sexuality, the Kundalini gland, and how Kundalini participates in the healing process.

Comprehensive look at the 12 main and 8 extra ancestral meridians
It will thoroughly review the 12 basic meridians of Chinese medicine including their function, symptoms, and consciousness. There will be a similar approach to the 8 extra (ancestral) meridians and their important role in genetic disease and balancing the main meridians. Plus, a unique system of treatment of the ancestral meridians using the BodyTalk System will be taught.

Discussion of where energy comes from and how it enters the body
Physiology tells us that only 30 percent of our energy needs come from food. This course will touch on the role of the various torus fields used to pump energy into the system from the Zero Point Field.
