In this presentation from the 2017 Members Conference, internationally regarded scholar, teacher, and practitioner of Chinese medicine, Lonny Jarrett, examines the Three Heater from multiple perspectives.
Lonny’s presentation will take you on an exploration of the Three Heater and its relationship to consciousness, the unconscious, and the ego. Lonny helps students to understand how these principles correlate with the heart, enteric, and head brains respectively. In sharing his insights into this key aspect of the human system, Lonny’s intent is to deepen your work with BodyTalk exponentially.
In Lonny's own words:
"Only in life do fire and water interpenetrate without destroying each other. In a sense Chinese medicine is a science of integrity diagnosing the separation of, and seeking to rekindle communication, between yin and yang. The Three Heater (TH) official, also called the San Jiao, offers a perfect example of the Chinese emphasis on function over form. The functioning
of the Three Heater is pervasive, yet it is not found in any specific location. In this sense, the TH may be likened to the Mysterious Pass (the portal between being and non-being) and its physiological correlate, mingmen (The Gate of Destiny)."
