Talismanic Calligraphy: Imprinting Healing Intentions
Oct 26 all-day
Heavens Cloud Event Center

Early Daoism was essentially a reflective and contemplative practice that aligned the adept to the natural phenomena of the world. Intrinsic in such meditations was the individual’s connection to the forces of nature and their movements. As these vectors of energies became internalized, the Daoist adepts were able to “capture” or “summon” such forces and displace their dynamics into objects — eventually relegating their intentions onto mediums of writing (e.g., silk, bamboo, and paper) that became known as Fu-talismans. This workshop will introduce participants to energetic symbols and the cultivation of drawing upon those symbols into empowered paper.

Please note: Calligraphy supplies are not included in the course fee. Supplies can be purchased on Amazon or at many art supply stores. You will need:

– Calligraphy brush.
– Ink stick (we will not use liquid ink)
– Ink grinding stone
– Calligraphy paper (also called xuan paper or rice paper), approximately 11×17 or 10×18 inch size. You will want something larger than 8 1/2 x 11 paper.
– Newspaper to protect your work surface and cloth rag to clean up any messes

Significance of the Names of Chinese Herbs
Oct 27 all-day
Heavens Cloud Event Center

Just like the names of Chinese acupuncture points, there is much richness in the names of herbs used in Chinese medicine. Drawing upon folklore, philosophy, and history, much of the names of the herbs confer the experiential realizations of their “discoverer”, the mundane to the extraordinary revelations exemplified by the plants, and the reverence accorded to their existences in fostering healing and evolution of humanity. Studying herbs can be as entertaining and provocative as poetry. This two-day class explores how some formulas represent the intricate weaving together of each plant like an acupuncture trajectory that offers a pathway to understanding, healing, and liberation.

This class is taught by Master Jeffrey Yuen who is one of the most sought-after teachers of Classical Chinese medicine in the world.
