Presented By Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée


May 18-19, 2019
New York City
(Yang Sheng Center – 224 W 35th St, #501)

Course Description
This 2-day course will analyze some of the Classics of Chinese Medicine, particularly Su Wen and Ling Shu, to understand the nature of the heart (心) and how it pertains to life and health.

We will explore the relationship of the Heart with the sense organs, the emotions, the blood, the spirits, the middle of the chest (Danzhong) and how the Classics present Heart and Heart protector (Pericardium, Xinbaoluo) as the double aspect of one Zang.
