Roots & Branches:
Deepening the Five Element Acupuncture Conversation
Still Meadow Retreat Center (25 minutes east of Portland)
May 2-4, 2014
Immerse yourself in the water element at this year’s Roots & Branches Five Element Symposium. Roots & Branches annual symposium is dedicated to the continual learning process of deepening and widening practitioner’s ability to understand and embody the 5 elements within an acupuncture practice or as a process of self-unfolding. Each year we will systematically look at an individual element, bringing you gems from the classics, playful and experiential exercises, selected Spirit of the Points, and practical rapport skills. Among the speakers at Roots and Branches are highly accomplished and dynamic practitioners and scholars, assembled to foster a thriving 5 Element community.
With a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional methods of teaching, the speakers at Roots & Branches will combine rigorous scholarly training with rich sensory experience. In this way the wisdom contained in the Chinese medicine classics can be both understood and made experientially useful in contemporary life and medical practice.
