This course provides a fresh look at Chinese Medicine through the Chinese characters to reveal their meaning.

Fascinating content and engaging and lively teaching
Fascinating content and engaging and lively teaching; incredible depth of knowledge. An extremely interesting and well taught course that deepens the understanding of the Chinese medicine approach to the internal organs. Best taught in 3 separate days as it covers a very wide and deep knowledge of the subject.
A very informative and well run workshop.
Deborah’s teaching itself was really engaging and clear, resulting in no boredom, no overwhelm, no why-am-I-here feelings. The tangents were also great and not really tangents – just related and explanatory information. For me, this is actual teaching – someone being generous with their knowledge and using it to illuminate a subject. Deborah has a great teaching style and is very free with her vast knowledge of the subject. A very informative and well run workshop.
The Interpreting the Zangfu workshop was unquestionably a return to the source of Oriental Medicine. Having key classical Chinese characters clearly explained was so valuable. Participants of this workshop will dive into the classics to get an expanded understanding of the richly textured layers of meaning that exist in ancient Chinese characters. A cultural journey through time-and-space made easily accessible by Deborah’s clear and engaging teaching. I would recommend this workshop to anyone interested in expanding and deepening their understanding of the Zang fu organs, and learning the original Chinese characters that described them.
A fascinating delivery
I thought that this would be a simple lecture on the zangfu and their function, however this was so much more, by interpreting the Chinese characters for the zangfu. Everything I expected to be addressed was, in a fascinating delivery. Compelling and enjoyable. [ I could not stop and was totally immersed in this… an excellent way to deepen my understanding of Chinese zangfu theory.]
