Course Prospectus: Inner Cultivation Through the Twelve Meridians
We explore the twelve meridians through a lense of inner cultivation, learning out to nourish our inborn nature and fulfil our destiny
Inner Cultivation Through the Twelve Meridians shows how to use the Five Element Acupuncture system for self-transformation. Inner cultivation is the personal work of nourishing our inborn nature and the fulfillment of our destiny. For the ancient sages of China, fulfilling one’s destiny is about spiritual transformation. They say the seed of Dao (the Divine, the inner Way, the Logos, Shabd) is present in every person equally, but it is up to each one to nurture this seed.
Our mind’s negative projections, judgments, or beliefs in response to what we have experienced create a false self that separates us from our inborn nature and our sense of unity with the Divine. Negative beliefs about self, others, and life manifest as disturbed emotions, making it impossible for us to know our true nature and realize our innate spiritual purpose.
As we raise our consciousness, we accept all life circumstances—whether pleasurable or painful—as heaven’s will. Viewing all challenges as the will of the Divine activates the spiritual seed of divinity deep within. Every situation and relationship interaction holds the potential for cultivating the five virtues associated with the five Essences that help us realize our spiritual purpose and destiny.
The Inner Cultivation programme examines how we deplete our reserves of life energy through our unconscious negative beliefs and disturbed emotions – eventually manifesting as suffering, illness, relationship problems, or a loss of mental and emotional well-being. Using the inner tradition of Chinese Acupuncture, the basis of healing is to re-establish the unity between the yang of heaven’s will and the Yin of our body and this life.
As we raise our spiritual consciousness, the virtues associated with the five Essences begin to manifest: truth, wisdom, benevolence, righteousness, and integrity. The five virtues naturally resolve the disturbed emotions that cause illness and pain.
The Inner Cultivation Programme teaches how to shift resonance with unconscious negative beliefs and mental interpretations in response to life experiences, so we begin to live with conscious awareness of the spark of the Divine within and go into action to manifest our true nature.
A student who completes this course will:
- Learn how to do thirteen (25) new repatternings related to the 12 Meridians.
- Learn how to use the 12 Meridian Pathways and the Meridian Points.
- Learn about the Three Treasures:
- JING – stored in the kidneys and is our inherited life force needed for all worldly accomplishments and spiritual realization.
- SHEN – stored in the heart is the activating impulse for our potential in the seed of our Jing. We need Shen to bring our potential into manifestation.
- YAN CHI or QI – a treasure also conferred at conception and stored in the kidneys. It arises from the Jing and Shen. Originally fused at conception, it separates with illness and suffering and becomes Yin and Yang. This shows up as excesses and deficiencies in our lives.
