Keynote Address:  The Pathology of Disease

In this keynote address Jeffrey will discuss how sometimes our thoughts and emotions can affect our state of wellness or disease, as well as how it affects us on the broader levels that branch out and impact our families and our communities.

Jeffrey C. Yuen comes from two Daoist lineages – 88th generation of the Yu Qing Huang Lao Pai (Jade Purity Yellow Emperor Lao Zi School) and 26th generation of the Quan Zhen Long Men Pai (Complete Reality Dragon Gate School).  His Daoist name for each tradition is respectively Yuan Xu and Song De.

Jeffrey also studied Chinese herbal medicine with Master Gong Song-Liu, a eunuch for the last two emperors of the Qing Dynasty who apprenticed with the imperial medical physicians.  As a friend of Master Yu Wen, Gong was persuaded to teach Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen, imparting his deep knowledge of Chinese medicine over a period of 8 years.  At the age of 100, Master Gong felt deeply satisfied with his transmission to Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen and left for China.

In the martial arts arena, Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen also trained under many eminent masters.  Among these masters are Leung Shum (Northern Eagle Claw), Lo Ching-Sum (Vietnamese Jing Wu Association), Chan Hai-Fu (White Crane’s Needle-In-Cotton), Chan Tai Shan (Tibetan Lama Style), Yao Mei-Hua (Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan), Wang Qing Shan (Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan), and Cui Yan (Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan).

Jeffrey C. Yuen currently believes that he can contribute to the practice of Chinese medicine in this country by spreading the traditions of Classical Chinese Medicine.  In that regards, he continues to teach extensively throughout the United States and abroad.  Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen serves as Dean for Academic Affairs for the Swedish Institute’s School of Acupuncture and Oriental Studies (NY).  His teachings have served as the basis of a state-approved doctoral program offered by the American University of Complementary Medicine (AUCM) in Los Angeles, CA.
