"The story is not told to lift you up, to make you feel better, or to entertain you, although all those things can be true. The story is meant to take the spirit into a descent to find something that is lost or missing and to bring it back to consciousness again.”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
This book takes the reader on an alchemical journey into the evolutionary core of the Chinese Medicine Meridian Matrix, known as the 8 Extraordinary Vessels. The inner traditions of Daoism and Chinese Medicine tell a story of the Spirit- the Shen, exploring the Essence- the Jing. Cultivating the awareness of this process of illuminating the Self is known as Alchemy. The acupuncture meridians tell an archetypal story of redemption and transformation of the spirit on the path to becoming an embodied soul. They provide a detailed map for each individual's journey of differentiation and self-realization, of the co-creative process of personal and planetary evolution.
In this book the reader will learn the stories, meanings, and acupuncture points of the pre-natal energy body and how they are maps to creating and gaining awareness of the articulation of the "empty space," the relationship, our multi-dimensional pivot, between Heaven and Earth. We will look at the Chong Meridian as the Channel of Our Blueprint, the Ren Meridian as the Channel of Our Bonding, the Du Meridian as the Channel of Our Individuation, and the roles of the other 8x Meridians and Curious Organs in healing and evolution.
