The Eight Extraordinary Vessels: Resources in Times of Evolutionary Stress
With Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc.
Saturday / Sunday, June 10-11, 2023
9:00 am – 5:30 pm
This 2-day (14- hour course) will introduce the concepts of how physical and emotional health are affected in extraordinary times. We will discuss the idea of evolutionary stress and the adaptation that it requires. We will also investigate how effective the Extraordinary Vessels (8EV) might be in assisting patients to move from state of survival back into balance which opens the possibility of thriving or greater states of well-being.
We will discuss the connection that the 8EV has in maintaining the shen/jing relationship. As pre-natal vessels, the 8EV contains within them the essence of our humanity and our curriculum in life. They represent the possibility or potential for living a life of meaning and purpose. Treatment using these vessels can ease the suffering associated with trauma and evolutionary stress. We will explore the impact of trauma or other significant life events may have on how our jing unfolds. Regulation of the vessels helps people move out of survival mode into a life with more consciousness, more choice, more sovereignty.
Participants can expect to learn how to create simple and elegant 8EV treatments that effectively address the impact of trauma and evolutionary stress on the patient’s health. Participants will learn how to recognize the way that life challenges impact each of the 8 EV and the physical and emotional symptoms that result from those stressors. They will also receive training in pulses that confirm 8EV patterns.
