Your Body is a Sacred Landscape

WITH LAURIE REGAN & HEINER FRUEHAUF
Total running time: 29 mins.
English

AUDIO PODCAST

Listen to the messages conveyed by your physical symptoms. In our culture, we are conditioned to think of symptoms as problems to fix. We have our growths removed with surgery, our fevers lowered with aspirin, and our rashes removed by steroid creams. While this kind of approach can have the blessing of alleviating our suffering, and even be a valuable component of our healing process, it alone does not address why the symptoms were there in the first place. Heiner and Laurie discuss the importance of listening to your body’s messages about what is out of balance, and learning to make corresponding choices that support the movement toward health. Even in a state of good health, our physical form can be understood as sacred reflection of the inner working of our being.

The Cosmology and Symbolism of the Twelve Organ Systems of Chinese Medicine

WITH LAURIE REGAN & HEINER FRUEHAUF
Total running time: 28 mins.
English

AUDIO PODCAST

This week, we open the door to a rich understanding that has come from more than a decade of research by a study group led by Heiner. Through excavation of the profound and timeless knowledge held in the ancient Chinese record, this team has uncovered multi-layered, symbolic meaning behind the system of 12 meridians that play a central role in Chinese medicine. Commonly thought of as pathways of qi flow in the body, these meridians, or organ systems, relate to sets of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual functions in the microcosm of the human body.

Why Classical Chinese Medicine is Relevant Today

WITH LAURIE REGAN & HEINER FRUEHAUF
Total running time: 28 mins.
English

AUDIO PODCAST

Co-host Laurie Regan interviews Heiner Fruehauf to learn about the basic principles of classical Chinese medicine, and why this ancient knowledge still holds so much relevance for us today.

Many ancient cultures had the practical realization that everything that exists is an inseparable mix of energy and matter, and is interconnected with everything else. Nothing is coincidence. In the realm of medicine, this means that every illness has meaning, and every symptom is a physical marker for the energy and consciousness that forms it. We can learn to read and interpret symptoms to understand the root cause of illness and find true solutions for restoring health.

In the second part of this series, Master Wang continues to recount the many traumatic and extraordinary events that fostered his becoming one of the most respected master’s of Daoist medicine and cultivation in China today.
