CM 631 - Chinese Organ Systems: Cosmology and Symbolism III


Credit(s): 2.00

This course series represents a gradually deepening introduction into the time-honored system of Chinese symbol science, which describes the physiology of the microcosm in terms of macrocosmic processes, involving such phenomena as stellar constellations, months of the year, earthly branches, hexagrams, and rivers in the sacred landscape of ancient China. Presenting the results of more than a decade of continuous inquiry by NUNM’s ancient symbolism research group, the functional archetypes of the organ systems of Chinese medicine and their expression in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes are described in exclusive detail. Specifically, the first course presents the “Earth Organs” (the lung, large intestine, stomach and spleen) and the functions of the animal body; the second presents the “Heaven Organs” (the heart, small intestine, bladder and kidney) and the functions of the sage body; and the third presents the “Humanity Organs” (the pericardium, triple warmer, gallbladder and liver) and the functions of the emotional body. Prerequisite(s): Second-year status
