Heal Your Heart: Nervous System Health & the Fire Element will benefit individuals, health care providers, and herbal practitioners alike in a holistic understanding of the cardiovascular and nervous systems. The Fire Element is one of 5 elements in an energetic model of healing corresponding with the heart.
Fire Element imbalance diminishes our ability to understand the world through symbolic language and is at the heart of much mental illness. It is the Fire Element that decodes and generates symbolic communication. This course examines the Heart-Mind connection and its role in mental health. Rather than fitting Chinese Medicine into the box of Western rational thought, this exploration of the Fire Element is an invitation to expand Western consciousness to contain another way of organizing reality through the lens of the 5 Elements.
Heal Your Heart addresses physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological issues related to the Fire Element. Our current health education system put in place by government and corporations, does not necessarily have our best interests at heart. You will explore a holistic approach to taking care of your heart and nervous system, which gives us a deeper understanding of mental health that Western Medicine is only just now beginning to grasp.
The shen lives in the heart and corresponds with the Fire Element. Shock or trauma causes the shen to flee the body. This fleeing is called a shen disturbance. The shen must be restored to the heart in order for healing to occur. Herbal, lifestyle, and dietary recommendations will be given for restoring the shen.
Summer is the season that corresponds with the Fire Element and is a time when things develop to their full potential. The power of Fire comes from the ability to liberate heat and light and realize joy and fulfillment. Fire contains the power of light, love, and awareness that transforms the material into the spiritual, and integrates the spiritual into the physical.
Nervine Tonics restore emotional balance and nourish the nerves and nervous system. Nervines are calming herbs that are mildly relaxing without the overt suppressant effects of sedatives. Nervines help calm anxiety and irritability. This course includes a list of herbs for mental health and 8 herbal monographs.
