The sensory orifices are the windows through which we perceive the external world. In health, they are clear portals to understanding our environment and our place in the world. The also provide us with the images, sounds and smells that catalyze our internal perceptions and sense of self. Challenged, the orifices can obscure our sensory input and alter our outer and inner perceptions.
In illness, it is often essential to change the way we “see things” in order to heal. This is particularly true in chronic and intractable conditions where our perception of our illness must change if we are to become well again.
Chinese herbal medicine has long been used to transform sensory perception.
This program will explore the nature of each orifice and a cultivation of sensitization to light, sound, smell and taste. The process by which the orifices become occluded will be discussed. Dr. Yuen will also suggest treatment strategies for clarifying and opening the senses in order to free up the possibility for greater animation of the shen.
