Dr. Stephen Jackowicz, M.Ac.,L.Ac.,Ph.D

Topic: Difficulties with the Classic of Difficulties

This workshop will focus on a re-reading of several of the salient sections of the Nanjing (Classic of Difficulties) with an eye towards understanding the clinical applications put forth in the original text. The workshop will then explore the commentary literature and how the re-interpretation by later scholars has introduced variant clinical application. The Student will have an opportunity to expand his/her view of the source text as well as explore a body of clinical approaches based in the Nanjing.
