The nature, prevalence and determinants of mental health problems in women during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth have been thoroughly investigated in high-income countries. Systematic reviews have shown that in these settings, about 10% of pregnant women and 13% of those who have given birth experience some type of mental disorder, most commonly depression or anxiety. Social, psychological and biological etiological factors interact, but their relative importance is debated.

From the course discussion, we will look at the shen evaluation procedure and the treatment planning and treatment details. Understanding the female energy patterns and shen activities are directly related in the clinic treatment and the results. The course will give TCM practitioners the confidence to deal with the patients and deliver the effective treatment as well.

Chang-Qing (Joseph) Yang, Ph.D, LAc, received his 5-year bachelor’s degree and 3-year master degree in TCM from the TCM University of Heilongjiang, Harbin, China in 1984. Since then, he was a faculty and clinician of the university, specializing in liver disease and mental disorder. He earned his master’s degree from the same university in 1987, majoring in pattern and human constitution. In 1991, he became a psychiatry trainee at the Aichi Medical University in Aichi, Japan and received his PhD degree in Psychiatry and Neurology from the Kobe University in Kobe, Japan. He is presently a clinic supervisor and faculty member at the Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, CA.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels are one of the most important channels in the acupuncture channel system. These channels are the bridge between prenatal and postnatal influences in our lives. The Eight Extraordinary channels influence Jing, (essence) and source Qi, and can be used to support all the channel systems.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels can assist in treating deep, chronic and old patterns that influence the three treasures of our life: the physical, emotional and spiritual. These channels can release one from emotional and spiritual imbalances and realign one to the yuan shen (original spirit).

In this workshop, David will introduce each of the Eight Extraordinary channels with an emphasis on their psycho-emotional and spiritual qualities. The focus of this workshop is clinical applications. David will present a framework to develop customized treatments for each patient. This is the essence of Chinese medicine.

Dr. David Twicken, DOM, L.Ac. A faculty member at Emperors College since 1994, David has taught acupuncture courses, Philosophy of Oriental Medicine, Tai Chi Chuan, Medical Qi Gong, Feng Shui, I Ching, Chinese Astrology, Medical History, The Eight Extraordinary Channels, and is a clinical supervisor.

Saturday January 24, 2015 – 9:00AM – 4:00PM
Sunday January 25, 2015 – 9:30AM – 4:30PM
Qi Gong Tui Na pays attention to the importance of “INTENTION” (Yi), or the concentrated power of thinking. With this focus, our mind and body can achieve a state of tranquility through clarity of Shen and the purity of intention, to bring great energy and power. Qi Gong Tui Na uses the integration of intention, power and qi to deliver shen and energy to patients by diverse pointing techniques. This practice brings jing, qi and shen of the patient into play, to both prevent and heal disease.This seminar focuses on the abdomen as the postnatal qi in all Zang Fu channels are developed on the foundation of Congenital Channel of the umbilical cord. Centered at CV-8, there is a higher self-regulating system separate from regular meridians, where qi and blood circulate in the body. Modern research shows that the abdomen functions as a ‘second brain’ or ‘information warehouse.’ The first day of the seminar will focus on treating psychological issues such as depression and stress. The second day of the seminar will focus on the three methods of Qigong Tuina used for cancer patients, to strengthen yang, improve circulation of qi and to release emotions.

Dr Liu Dong is an internationally acclaimed Qigong Master and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. A graduate of the Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, he has conducted scientific research on the medical effects of Qigong in China, Japan, the United States (Harvard School of Medicine), and in France (National Health and Medical Research Institute in Marseille and Marmottan Hospital in Paris). He is a powerful Qigong healer with a profound knowledge of medicine, and many years’ experience of treating patients with Qigong therapy, including China’s former president, Deng Xiao Ping, and other dignitaries. He has published several books and articles on Qigong. Dr. Liu Dong founded a Chinese Medicine School in Paris and a Qigong school in Seattle. His methods are being taught worldwide and are currently a part of the curriculum at the, Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.

Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine
1807 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 200, Santa Monica, CA 90403

This medical qi gong workshop introduces the theory and practice of the healing sounds and the microcosmic orbit qi gong.

The healing sounds are one of the oldest qi gong practices. Two significant Chinese medical practitioners recommended practicing them: Sun Si-Miao and Tao Hongjing. This practice clears the organs and channels from heat, stress, blockages and stagnations, as well as energizes the organs. The healing sounds follow the creation cycle flow. The healing sounds transform unfavorable emotions to their natural virtues. The theory of emotions is based on Chapter 5 of the Sun Wen: The Manifestation of Yin and Yang from the Macrocosm and the Microcosm. You will learn reducing and reinforcing methods. This practice is simple to learn and easy and fun to practice. The healing sounds can be practiced sitting and standing and is a simple and effective qui gong for yourself and your patients.

The microcosmic orbit is a foundation meditation. The microcosmic orbit is the circuit comprised of the Ren and Du channels. This meditation enhances the flow of qi in the Ren and Du channels, the major channels that flow up the back and down the front of the body. These two channels have a strong influence on all the channels in the body and are essential for building vitality and rejuvenating the body. It also balances the Yin and Yang energies of the body to restore health and well-being.

The healing sounds and the microcosmic orbit meditations compliment any exercise and cultivation practice, for example, yoga, tai chi chuan and other qi gong practices.

Mindful medicine teaches the healer to heal themselves. “Healing thyself” is a key ingredient to better assist in the healing process of others. Within mindful medicine we use tools to help access the various aspects of an individual- the mind, body, and emotional well being to bring greater awareness of all the different dynamics occurring within a treatment. Creating a sense of mindful awareness within your practice helps to strengthen the level of communication and connection between you and your patient. Creating a greater awareness of how your thoughts, feelings and emotions influence the way in which you connect with your patients gives you a greater ability to connect at a deeper level with even the subtle issues that may be occurring within the room. A deeper connection with patients increases your empathy, compassion, and ability to hold space for whatever issue may be happening in our patients’ lives.
Seanna Sifflet, Lac, MSW, co-founder of The holding-space, integrates her expertise in Eastern medicine with mindful awareness and other treatment modalities to bring better balance and healing to her patients. She currently treats a full schedule of patients as Staff Acupuncturist with ONE Medical Group in Manhattan. She has reached many people through her personal lecture and workshop series, helping both individuals and businesses achieve better communication and enhanced quality of life through mindful awareness. She holds Master Degrees in both Chinese Medicine and Social Work and has professional experience as a Medical Social Worker at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City. Seanna has observed the effects of mindful awareness within her own practice. Seanna knows that addressing the mind and body holistically produces optimal healing results. Seanna’s friends and colleagues describe her as having a positive, calming, and grounded energy. She describes herself as being light hearted and a big laugher.

Brady Ovson, co-founder of Theholding-space, has been an educator and actor for the past 15 years. Brady holds a Master’s in Theatre Education with an emphasis in communities from New York University. He studied in Brazil under internationally renowned Theatre of the Oppressed creator Augusto Boal where he facilitated workshops in hospitals and prisons. He has been a K-12 teacher and has facilitated movement and awareness workshops in universities, secondary schools, hospitals, and prisons. He spent years facilitating movement, breath work, and improvisational skills workshops within the New York State Correctional Facilities to improve self awareness, communication skills, connection, and authentic power. His work has been aimed toward bringing people to a better place of connection and communication through greater self and group awareness. He believes that life is one big improvisation and that when we’re open to one of life’s most important rules of saying “yes”, that life rewards us in ways beyond our imagination. He is a proud father that loves nothing more than playing and laughing with his family.
