Launching Imperial Tutor
It's been a beautiful late summer and early fall here in my new home on Whidbey Island, just north of Seattle. In spite of the distractions from the glorious sunshine, my team and I have been hard at work laying the foundations for some new projects:
- ImperialTutor.com is my new website where I will be offering my teachings on classical Chinese medicine in a range of formats, from private mentoring to large lecture classes. For information on my various offerings, click HERE.
- A bit last minute but with a lot of enthusiasm and anticipation, my colleague Scott Tower and I would like to invite you to consider participating in our first retreat to be taught at my new home on Whidbey Island. From December 1 to 3, 2017, we will be sharing with you our understanding of the Path of the Good Person (shanrendao) in a retreat on Virtue Healing in the Tradition of Wang Fengyi. If you are interested, get in touch right away because it will be a very intimate gathering.
- I am so happy to announce that my dear friend Susie Minger, former administrative assistant at the National University of Natural Medicine's College of Classical Chinese Medicine, will be helping me with retreats and will be the person you interact with when you sign up for retreats. Some information on her is found on the page about Our Team on my website.
- Lastly, I have been working very hard on my forthcoming book on Sù Wèn 素問 5, "Humming with Elephants: The Great Treatise on the Resonant Manifestations of Yin and Yang" (or something along those lines). It is definitely the most difficult book project I have ever undertaken, but such an important text that I need to do it justice. So please bear with me as I am going through one more radical re-write to make it easier to grasp for the reader. I still hope to finish my revision in time to have it out before the New Year, even if it's the Chinese New Year.
- I have been finalizing a lot of lecture engagements for the spring: From New York City in late March to Australia and New Zealand and then straight on to Vancouver, Canada in April, to the Rothenburg Congress in Germany in May, and finally a nice herbwalk with Z'ev Rosenberg in Taos in September. For more details, see my events page here, which I update as things evolve.
- The next great project will be a more organized training project for Classical Chinese, but first I want to finish my book.
- In addition to all these scholarly things, I have also fallen in love with Open Water Swimming in the Salish Sea, which makes me ridiculously happy (and radiantly healthy) every single time I jump in.
