True Fertility - Opening up to the source of the 8 Extraordinary Meridians

Randine Lewis

8th November 2018

Deskworx - Melbourne

$695 - Full payment non refundable

This one day workshop will take practitioners through the themes of the 8 Miraculous Meridians and help them work on deeper psycho-emotional levels with their patients. This a workshop that involves emotional work by the practitioner to better know themselves so to facilitate for their patients in a more congruent way.

What some participants for the retreat thought:

"The retreat was a wonderful experience, to be in the presence of a true master who obviously knew her stuff inside out, but has now gone way beyond that, to a deeper, inner knowing. It was a privilege to absorb some of that deeper knowledge and search for that place within me. If you're searching for some deeper meaning to Chinese Medicine and yourself, I'd recommend it."

Last weekend I had the privilege of receiving wisdom directly from one of my long time Chinese Medicine Fertility mentors and person I admire greatly, Dr Randine Lewis. A truely wise and wild woman.Chinese Medicine as it is practiced these days has lost a lot of its Heart. The soul exists, the information is there, but the feeling is missing.

The feminine mystery’s, the depths, the dark, the flow. The knowing.

Originally, like many ancient healing arts, this Medicine was called down by the Women Shamans and was passed through a female lineage of healers.

It’s a long but familiar story. Divine feminine gets knocked from her Goddess-worshipped throne, the patriarchy gains presence and standing, shifting the evolution and handing down of knowledge. The medicine was taken, quite literally, out of the hands of our wise women, and into the hands of wise men.

Over the thousands of years that is has been shared, it has been via its more masculine transmission.

The written word over the spoken one.

The structured schooling and regulation of medicine over the mountain-top foraging and harvesting of herbs.

The laser focus over the felt appreciation.

Much lost.

Getting to learn from a living master of their art is one thing, getting to learn directly from them over four days is another thing entirely.

Practising daily Feminine Qi Gong made it nourishing and restorative. Food prepared with Love helped us to be centred and grounded. And spending time with 26 other Women, other Doctors of Chinese Medicine, made it powerfully profound.

This was a deep dive into the foundations of Chinese Medicine in its feminine transmission. Female wisdom. Deeper knowledge of our capabilities as women. Deeper understanding.

We journeyed deep into the Fertile Heart and the Fertile Soul.

POST CONFERENCE

Taking a Heart centred approach to treating Infertility

In this two day workshop, Yaron will cover the foundations of HunYuan method. Expanding on the content of his IICMC lecture, Yaron explores each of these topics in great depth: 

Body - Exploring the idea that the purpose of the body is to synchronise with nature and move towards unification. Cultivation of body and heart of healers - embodying the principles of our medicine rather than just being a dispenser of herbs or an acupuncture mechanic.

Heart - How can we cultivate the heart? Not just in the people who seek our help, but also within ourselves. The importance of making a connection between practitioner and patient - aligning with what the patient is wanting to achieve and what the practitioner can offer. Rigorous self cultivation of your own heart allows you to have a deeper understanding of what is going on in your patient's heart.

Medicine - Creating unification through herbs, acupuncture and what it means to give the appropriate treatment in the right measure.

"I first came across Hunyuan medicine during a weekend seminar in Sydney about five years ago and was immediately struck by the explanation of why and how "TCM" falls short and what we had lost from the classical knowledge base. What I appreciate is that Hunyuan medicine is a complete framework for the Chinese medicine principle that, once grasped, allows the practitioner to place any intervention (such as herbs, acupuncture, meditation, even Western medicine or other body work) into the framework to understand when and how to intervene and seamlessly adapt as the patient improves. The most unique contribution of Hunyuan medicine for Chinese medicine practitioners is, in my opinion, the concept of unification and the hidden aspect of the physical body, with the "unification formula" as its expression in herbal practice. This allows the practitioner to reach a depth and a dimension that is lacking in TCM and other herbal approaches. Dr Yaron Seidman is a practitioner of Chinese medicine, martial arts, Qigong and classical self-cultivation as well as being gifted in logical, systemic thought processes - this combination has allowed him to reach deep into the knowledge bank of medicine, neigong, philosophy and culture, and bring forth a structure that is extremely practical as well as life-affirming and inspirational for patient and practitioner alike."


This 2 day workshop will help fertility practitioners to gain a deeper understanding of the application of acupuncture, herbal medicine and other tools in the treatment of infertility.

The Hunyuan system of diagnosis and treatment will be covered over this 2 day seminar including the use of music and exercises to help cultivate a connection between the heart and the centre (Dan Tian).  Yaron will explore the importance of a calm and centred heart in understanding infertility and with the application of treatment using the heart method.

​Hunyuan medicine is known for its beautiful simplicity and high efficacy, it is influenced by Chinese prominent teachings of Confucius and Lao Zi, Zhang Zhong Jing (Shan Han Lun), Liu Yuan (Huai Xuan school) and Zheng Qinan (Fire Spirit school), and is constantly illuminated and developed by Yaron’s relentless research and deepening understanding of Life. The focus for a practitioner mastering Hunyuan is switched from memorising patterns, protocols and formulas to understanding the principle which makes the application simple

Bringing this forward into the modern day, we will discuss the herbal formulas and acupuncture point combinations that use our highly nuanced treatment framework that bring the best clinical success to your fertility patients.
