The Luo-Collaterals: Self-preservation Through Blood Flow
Each time we experience something in life, we must process that experience. In order to learn and grow we must have the ability to internalize life from a sensory, emotional & mental perspective. There are times when the Ying qi and Wei qi are overwhelmed by life’s challenges and they are not equipped to deal with the onslaught of experience. The Luo-collateral system is uniquely designed to hold on to those experiences, which cannot be processed, until we are better able to deal with them. The system gives us the time to gather our resources, release the latency and address the challenging experiences.
In this course we will explore the Luo-collateral system as a means to self-preservation. We will explore the concept that latency is created for survival purposes. We will discuss the implications of using blood as a medium for creating and maintaining latency. We will investigate the differences between states of “fullness and emptiness” in the Luos and the associated symptomology of each of the 16 Luo vessels. We will discuss treatment options and techniques for treating pathology in the Luo-collaterals.
1. Participants will learn to recognize and treat Luo pathology.
2. Participants will deepen their understanding latency and its association with emotional trauma.
3. Participants will explore the nature of the differences between pre-natal resources and post-natal processing.
4. Participants will review and expand their knowledge of the Luo-collateral points, pathways and functions.
