The Huangdi Neijing is more than just the foundation of our medicine as a clinical art. This seminal text is also a system of natural science, and it articulates a vision of a holographic and resonant universe which is congruent with modern Western sciences. The Neijing provides us with a complete worldview in which there is no separation between each of us as individuals or our environment. It is a worldview in which we, as individuals and as a society, follow the same well-defined laws that govern all phenomena. From the movements of stars, to the organization of cells into living beings, and the organization of living beings into ecosystems, it is a worldview in which there is no difference between illness, ecology and governance.
Join us for a discussion of how as we are coming to understand the Huangdi Neijing, and how this understanding offers powerful and unique solutions to some of the problems we are facing as individuals and as a global society.
