Course Overview

The theories of Five Emotions and Seven Emotions as causes of disease are well known. However, less discussed is how these emotions can be regarded as vital human resources, which, when harnessed in a positive manner, can enhance our quality of life. Instead of feeling frustrated, fatigued and irritable, what if this same energy could provide us with creativity, dynamic energy, effectiveness and flexibility.

The first part of this course deals with each of the emotions in their positive expression and links emotional function to the functions of the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex, as well as breathing and heartbeat.

The second part of the course discusses traditional TCM psychological treatment methods including Zhu Danxi’s “Living Noose” therapy, also known as “Use emotion to overcome emotion”, as well as acupuncture treatments for mental and emotional disorders. The role of the Gallbladder in mental and emotional function will be explored in depth.
