We often think of emotion as one thing. That we are sad, or angry, or frustrated, or joyous. But often it’s more complicated than that. Many times there will be an entanglement of emotion. Love and anger, grief and guilt, or excitment and anxiety. It’s when emotions get entangled people can really get stuck as it is hard to sort work through one emotion when it’s intimately connected with another toward which you’re not attending .

In this conversation with Lillian Bridges we explore our emotional makeup, how it shows on the face, and how we can use the dynamics of the five phases to better understand and sort out these deep internal influences that can so dramatically effect our physiology and relationships.

Listen into this conversation that goes into our “internal weather,” the right use of Will and how our feelings can strongly influence our perceptions and perspectives.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • The problem of overusing or underusing emotion
  • It is the nature of emotion to seek expression, for it to go out and come in
  • Emotions are often tangled together, which is what makes resolving some difficult at times
  • Sadness may reside it the Lung, but it can come from the Heart, or the Liver for that matter
  • Dread is a combination of worry and fear
  • Wood goes to the past, Metal looks toward the future with ideas and ideals
  • How to tell if someone is introvert or extrovert
  • Opposites tend to look alike
  • After the age of sixty you can’t use your Will in a way that goes against your higher good
  • Be careful with your metrics for comparison
  • Chinese medicine is amazing for adapting to new circumstances
  • Wood and Fire have a difficult time with isolation
  • How to use face reading if you don’t know how to face read
  • To love someone else is to forgive them for not being you
  • If you find the emotion underneath the action, you’ll know what element it is
  • We have exactly the right body we need to express the unique gifts we have
  • Nothing is missing
  • The importance of fulling your worldly obligations

I learned about Daoist Philosophy, which includes the ancient science of Face Reading and the ancient art of Feng Shui, from my Chinese family, most specifically from my Grandmother, Mary Chien Lowe and from my uncles. I was taught in the apprenticeship method from the time I was 5 years old until I was in my early 20’s.  I actually thought that every family knew such things and when I discovered that it was not common, I decided to write a book about my family’s teachings. It took many years as I had to connect the things I learned in the holistic Chinese way with the Western need for details. My first book, Face Reading in Chinese Medicine came out in 2003 and the 2nd Edition was published in 2012.

I have spent many years traveling around the world teaching Face Reading and Facial Diagnosis to Doctors, Acupuncturists and other Health Practitioners at conferences and schools and  to Business Management teams. I have also taught and practiced Five Element Feng Shui, working with developers and individuals utilizing the principles of Daoist Design to enhance the “outer body” of homes and offices. In addition, I’ve read thousands of wonderful faces and enjoy helping people recognize more about who they are, what’s wonderful about them and where they can potentially go, and they can do in the world, which I call their Golden Path.  It makes me very happy to help people and encourage them to become their best selves and live their best lives.

We are being invited, both by our conditions and circumstances and by people in our profession to “get online and do tele-medicine.” However much of what we do as acupuncturists does not translate well, as our most critical tool cannot be used in a digital form.

The questions that I’ve been noodling through for the past month plus are what is the essence of my work when I don’t have access to my kit of tools? And how would I describe what I do, when I can use my needles?

In this rebroadcast of a Lhasa webinar with Daniel Schulman, Alaine Duncan and Amy Mager as we explore the opportunities and challenges in this moment of transformation.


 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”About show guest” _builder_version=”4.2.2″ text_font_size_tablet=”51″ text_line_height_tablet=”2″ header_font_size_tablet=”51″ header_line_height_tablet=”2″]

Alaine Duncan has a unique approach acupuncture that integrates modern understandings of the neuro-biology of traumatic stress with ancient healing principles from Chinese medicine. This clinical fascination has carried her heart to places and people she never imagined when she graduated from acupuncture school in 1990, and completed Somatic Experiencing training in 2007.

She founded Integrative Healing, LLC in 2012 with a goal to integrate the wisdom of Chinese Medicine with the study of neurobiology and traumatic stress in both the classroom and the treatment room. Her research background includes studies assessing the impact of integrative medicine on compassion fatigue in military caregivers; acupuncture for treatment of combat-related traumatic stress, chronic headaches in Veterans with traumatic brain injuries, pain in Veterans of all conflicts, and Gulf War Veterans Illness.

Alaine was a founding member of the Integrative Health & Wellness program at the DC Veterans Administration Medical Center where she served as a clinician and researcher from 2007-2017.

 

Daniel Schulman graduated from New England School of Acupuncture in 1999.   He has been in private practice in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada since then.  He founded and chairs the Association of Registered Acupuncturists of Prince Edward Island.

For twenty years, Daniel’s clinical work centred around Japanese palpatory approaches, primarily those in the Nagano/Matsumoto lineage (but also including Keiraku Chiryo).  Following Nei Jing studies with Ed Neal, he expanded this into a more focused six channels perspective and in particular, an exploration of and fusion with Nei Jing Ren Ying Cun Kou pulse diagnosis.  This work involved what he calls a reverse engineered ‘palpate first, ask questions later’ approach.  More recently, Daniel has found himself in a radical clinical transformation via the elegant Sa’Am fusion of I Ching, 5 Phases and Six Levels.

Daniel has written many articles, published in the Journal of Chinese Medicine, the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, the North American Journal of Oriental Medicine and more.  A full list can be found on his website, www.danielschulman.ca where he also blogs.

Daniel’s daily practice is guided by three existentially terrifying realizations;

  • Anything can be anything (in other words, dysfunction in just about any channel or channel combination could be underlying just about any symptom)
  • Most patients exhibit no less than 12 ‘patterns’ and often more
  • At any moment in the clinical encounter, there are 10,000 things happening and at even the utmost level of awareness and presence, we may become aware of at most 30-40 of them.

Daniel marvels at the fact that even after two decades in practice, every day is novel, new and fascinating.

 

Amy Mager has been licensed to practice acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine since 1990. Amy graduated Magna Cum Laude from Brandeis University, and earned her MS in Chinese Medicine from ACTCM in 1989 and her  Doctorate in Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Integrative Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2017. She apprenticed with midwife and acupuncturist. Raven Lang L.Ac. for two years.  She has been in private practice in CA and MA for over 29 years. She serves as Vice Chair of the American Society of Acupuncturists and has served on the Board of the Acupuncture Society of Massachusetts as well as a board member at large of the Maternity Acupuncture Association. She has served on the board of uprooted, a Jewish response miscarriage and pregnancy as well as the Green River Doula Network. Amy is also a trained birth educator, birth assistant, lactation counselor and End of Life doula.

Amy has been published in the books Parenting From the Heart and Round the Circle as well as on Huffington Post. Amy has published two articles in the Pacific College of Oriental medicine newsletter and JASA with her writing partner Christine Cronin DACM, Lic.Ac.. One on postpartum care, and 11 heat therapy.  She has a bi-weekly radio segment with Bob Flaherty on WHMP, “Healing Outside the Box, Inside the Heart”.  For a more in depth bio please visit www.WellnessHouseNorthampton.com

Curiosity in the Time of Corona • Greg Bantick • Qi134

Some of the difficulties faced by many of us in this time of pandemic are the disorientation, anxiety and fear that arise from uncertainty. But if you look more closely, you’ll see that there never is in this life the guarantee of certainty. It can feel that way because of habituation, but when you strip away the daily habits and sense of continuity, then the profound and often unbearable uncertainty that all self-aware mortal beings share, is always there.

These past few months in Asia and past few weeks in the western world have been tearing away at our sense of certainty and security. We fear for our lives, our livelihoods, families and increasingly… our communities as well.

In this conversation with Greg Bantick we look into how this ever-present moment arises from innumerable causes and conditions, and how curiosity can help us to more fully inhabit all the moments in which we find ourselves.

This is an episode that is not just for practitioners, your patients, family and friends could benefit from this conversation as well.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • Living into the uncertainty
  • Grief for a way of life that is gone
  • Empty stores wake us to our connection with each other
  • The unrootness that arises without our usual problems and routine
  • The web of causes and conditions that lead to anxiety
  • Not adding the extra burden of self-criticism
  • Dealing with fear
  • Curiosity and gentle inquiry about our experience

The experience of trauma is as much a part of life as is falling in love, having family disagreements, and wondering how we fit in this life. And while we tend to focus on the problems that have their roots in traumatic experiences, it is also possible that we can become more resilient and anti-fragile by moving through traumatic experiences in a way that allows us to harvest the lessons of the experience.

In today’s conversation we explore aspects of modern bio-physiology, the insights and perspectives from somatic experiencing and how these relate to the five phases.

Listen in for a discussion of how the fact of trauma is less important than how we move through the cycle of resolution. As we know from Chinese medicine, when things stagnate there are going to be problems. But if there is movement, then the zheng qi of a system will work to help us to resolve the difficulties and bring us to a place of harmony, health and resilience.

All healing rests on embodied experiences of safety and relationship.


Alaine Duncan, L.Ac

I have a unique approach to acupuncture treatment that integrates modern understandings of the neuro-biology of traumatic stress with ancient healing principles from acupuncture and Asian medicine. This clinical fascination has carried my heart and my feet to places and people I never imagined when I graduated from acupuncture school in 1990. The boundary between me and military families, immigrants, refugees, and survivors of natural and human-made disasters has grown more and more thin – and that is a gift of spirit.  I love our medicine. I love what it can explain about life and how it can reach people whose life and health resides at the margins.

Asian medicine has a rich place at the interface of individual healing and social transformation. It has a lot of power to restore balance and regulation, not just for individuals, but for how those individuals relate to their families, workplaces, and our communal ballot box. We are pretty important to our planet and all who live on it.

I’m in that Earth phase of life – the time of collecting and distributing the harvest. I have a small practice at Crossings Healing & Wellness in Silver Spring, MD, am Chair of the Board of the National Capital Area Acupuncturists Without Borders chapter – volunteering free stress-reduction services to immigrants, refugees and neighbors in need. I helped develop the Integrative Health & Wellness program at the DC Veterans Administration Medical Center, serving there from 2007 – 2017.

Oriental medicine draws distinctions between various aspects of mind, body and spirit, but unlike Western culture, it never severed the connections between these aspects of being.

We know both from our experience in clinic and writings of Chinese medicine through the ages that emotional and mental processes can effect physiology and the body can deeply influence the mind. Where Western medicine sees hierarchy and disconnection, we see an entangled system of mutual influence between mind and body.

In this episode we explore working with the aspect of emotions through the influence of the eight extraordinary vessels.

Listen in for an introduction to how you can tap the influence of the eight extras to help your patients navigate psycho-emotive issues.

Show Highlights
4:00       Chinese medicine is helpful because it does not separate the mental and emotional processes from the body.
6:14       The extraordinary vessels are helpful as they give access to the jing, which is necessary in the treatment of long term patterns that effect a sense of oneself.
7:20      When you are dealing with emotions, you’re dealing with blood.
10:02    Intergenerational trauma is stored in jing.
14:20   The yin wei distributes primal yin, regulates the 7 and 8 years cycles and provides resources in time of crisis, change and challenge. There is also an aspect of discontent with people who have yin wei imbalances.
19:30   It’s helpful to bring the rubric of constraint or weakness when treating, and selecting channels that either bring resources to deficiency or movement to stagnation.
21:50   The coupled points are rarely used. It’s more helpful to use a single vessel, and needle the master point and another point on the trajectory of the vessel.
27:12   A brief look at the personality of the extraordinary vessels.
32:24   Intention vs agenda in the treatment of emotion issues
33:30  You don’t have to “do therapy” with a patient to help them with psycho-emotive issues.

Yvonne has been involved in empowering others to restore balance in their lives since 1986. In 1996, she graduated from Emperor’s College with a Master’s Degree in Chinese Medicine.
