    An Overview of the Channel System

    The impact of trauma on the body is extensive and complex. To be of service to patients with chronic
    illness or a history of trauma one must have a clear understanding of the unique functions of each of the
    individual channel systems and how they impact each other.
    In this 2-day course we will explore how trauma causes psychological armoring in the channel system
    within the 3 levels of qi (wei, ying and yuan). We will also discuss the relationship between prenatal
    resources and postnatal function, the cosmology of the channel system and the evolution of
    consciousness in trauma recovery.
    We will cover the pathways, function, symptoms and important points associated with the Sinews, Luo-
    collaterals, Primary channels, Divergents and 8 Extraordinary Vessels.
