Cosmological Daoism, also known as Huang-Lao Daoism, was the most influential philosophy in China for
much of the Qin-Han dynasty. Cosmology, an age-old science, is the study of the origins of the universe
through studying the heavens and it requires an understanding of astronomy, not astrology! It links with
acupuncture practice because Huang Di, who we all know as the Earth Emperor, was believed to have
ruled time and space on Earth from the Heavens, as explained by the venerable historian, Sima Qian (145
– 87 BC). He described the northern star formation, the Plough, as the chariot on which Huang Di rode in
order to control:- the four cardinal points; to divide yin and yang; to regulate the four seasons; to maintain
equilibrium between the five elements; and to take charge of the 24 solar periods and the calendar!
Indeed Huang Di, the Yellow Emperor, could be called the original Time Lord.
Our acupuncture ‘bible’, the Huangdi Neijing, is recognised as a foremost Huang-Lao text. In order to fully
understand the Nei Jing and of course core acupuncture concepts, and in order to remove acupuncture’s
seeming complexities and contradictions, one needs to understand its Huang-Lao origins.
For those who would like to join us, or for those who are curious, understanding Huang-Lao acupuncture
theory brings many benefits and can be used to enhance whichever style of acupuncture that you prefer
Would you like to know how to:-
Tonify and sedate with the ebb and flow of Yin and Yang throughout the year and on a daily basis?
What about tonifying and sedating in accordance with the waxing and waning moon? (Really useful to
regulate menstrual cycles, to improve fertility, as well as dealing with ebb and flow of general strength.)
And needle in tune with the depth of qi flow throughout the year?
How to effectively use the five elements in tune with the seasons?
These are basic and easy enhancements anyone can do with even a preliminary understanding of time and
space in relation to acupuncture.
Roisin will be running a 6 weekend course in 2023-24 to teach in depth how to use these methods in clinical practice. More details of this full course can be found at this link (with earlybird prices) - https://www.eventcreate.com/e/timeandspace
This introductory free talk on February 8th will provide an introductory look at:
A unifying theory which fully integrates the concepts of heaven, earth and humanity, five
elements, yin and yang, and the effect of the climates.
How to look at the patient in the context of this present time, as well as their inherited energies
from the time of birth.
How to refine your treatment so that each point has a particular resonance with the other points
in the treatment. This makes the treatments more powerful.
How to work at a deep core level to bring about profound changes in the patient's relationship
