This acupuncture continuing education course on Shen is based on a high quality audio recording of a seminar presented in November 2005. Jeffrey Yuen is the speaker, in front of a live audience in Maryland in the United States. The subject is a comprehensive look at the “Shen” in Chinese Medicine. You can receive continuing education credits for listening and studying the material if a worksheet is filled out, and an exam taken. The continuing education credit comes from the NCCAOM as professional development activity (PDA) with a certificate. To find out more about the PDA process visit the summary of the course process.
The concept of Shen in Chinese medicine has always been elusive. Yet Shen is the single factor that is the root of all diseases and conditions of life. Shen and its dynamics are rarely taught within the curriculum of TCM – creating a missing link in grasping the essence of Chinese medicine. It is often inadequately translated as spirit, purpose, mind, Dao, etc. yet the concept of Shen extends beyond alchemy, religion, philosophy, mysticism and self-cultivation. Jeffrey Yuen provides an in-depth discussion on the different aspects of Shen and its manifestations, including the concepts of Ling, Hun, and Po. In addition, the influences from other traditions on Chinese Medicine are examined pertaining to the Shen. Lastly, clinicians learn how to effectively treat Shen disturbances.
