“Ling Shu 8: Foundation in Spirit” an evening with Zev Rosenberg
Sept 10th, 2017 7-9pm
The frequently quoted chapter 8 of the Ling Shu, opens with the statement “every needling method first must be rooted in 神shen” (Fan ci zhi fa, xian bi ben yu shen 凡刺之法先必本于神). This chapter of the Ling Shu, which covers the five yin viscera and their associated ‘spirits’, is much debated, not least of which for the question of what is the 神shen?
From this starting point, Z’ev Rosenberg will cover the fundamental principles of Chinese medicine revealed in the Ling Shu, and will lead an open-ended presentation and discussion designed to deconstruct our modern bias on what Chinese medicine ‘is’, and open possibilities to a dynamic, interactive application of this venerable medicine. This presentation will challenge our knowledge base by focusing on the relationship between physical health and emotional/psychological health as discussed in this essential chapter.
