Shawn will explore the classical text, Lingbao Wufuxu (The Preface to the Five Lingbao Talismans of Numinous Treasure), a fifth-century manual of herbal-based, immortality-oriented recipes, to explore
Daoist ideas of the body’s composition and mutability, health and disease, interactions with the spirit realm, and immortality. Much as the modern Western world is concerned with diets, health, and anti- aging remedies, early medieval Chinese Daoists also actively sought to improve health and increase longevity through dietary practices. Students will explore how these early practices do and do not t for our modern world and patient populations. Appropriate for the student of Chinese medicine and the experienced clinician. Persons interested in Taoist studies or nutrition without a Chinese Medicine background may also find the content useful. There are no prerequisites for this class.
Class is 9:00am – 5:30pm Saturday and Sunday on the Jung Tao School campus at 207 Dale Adams Road, Sugar Grove, NC 28679 in the second floor classrooms and are approved for 15 units NCCAOM PDAs.
