* APRIL 4TH - 7TH 2019 *


This advanced seminar will look at the Fluid Body from a cellular metabolic and elemental point of view. A new view of the human body will be presented, and skills derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Tibetan Medicine will be integrated with Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy (BCVT). These skills will provide a clinical method for working with metabolic disorders. There is a global pandemic of metabolic disorders requiring a new understanding of healing the human body. 'Nine pulses' refers to ancient locations and meaning for taking a pulse in TCM. Each of these primary pulses is associated with an artery, an organ system as well as the flow of Primary Respiration (PR).

An understanding of the Fluid Body as the home of all the traditional elements will be presented, especially the 'wind' element. The five subtle winds of Tibetan Medicine will be taught and sensed via the perception of PR. These five winds arise from fulcrums located near the third ventricle, heart, respiratory diaphragm, duodenum and kidneys. Together the nine primary pulses and five winds represent an advanced understanding of the Ignition process in BCVT. This new view of the Fluid Body is centered in the gut as the source of change process metabolically and elementally.

Participants will:

  • Learn to differentiate the nine pulses of TCM with the secondary pulses
  • Refine the skill of perceiving the therapeutic direction and effects of PR in the Fluid Body
  • Learn the new metabolism of the body
  • Deepen skills with the ignition process in the cardiovascular system.
