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.

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, and is a clinic supervisor.

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.

The luo collaterals are presented in the Ling Shu and the Su Wen and they are part of the acupuncture channel system: sinew, luo, main, divergent and the eight extraordinary channels.

Dr. Twicken will present the classical applications of the luo collaterals and the new theories and applications that occurred over the past 1,000 thousand years.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, emotions are stored in the blood and the luo collaterals treat blood. In this workshop, David will introduce the relationship between the heart, the spleen, blood and emotions. He will present how to treat emotions with the luo collaterals.

The five shen is an important insight of the early practitioners of Chinese medicine. The five shen is a unique understanding of the inseparable nature of the body-mind. This ancient insight is the foundation for holistic medicine.Chapter 5 of the Su Wen, The Manifestation of Yin and Yang from the Macrocosm to the Microcosm, and chapter 8 of the Ling Shu, The Roots of the Spirit, present detailed information about the five shen and the psycho-emotional aspects of them. The clinical applications of these chapters will be presented providing a practical clinical model for diagnosis and treatment.

David will also present the history of the window of the sky points and his insights to their relationship to the luo points.

What you learn in this workshop:

• Taoist theories of the Shen and emotions based on the Nei Jing and Taoist healing and self-cultivation practitioners.

• The five shen and emotions.

• The relationship between emotions and blood and how it can be transferred from lifestyle to the constitution.

• Learn the energetic, emotional and anatomical layers of the body and how the luo collaterals are used to release emotions.

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.
