DETAILED PROGRAM FOR LEVEL 1:
This seminar focuses on the stepwise process for developing a Ba Zi chart. Participants will become proficient in creating a person’s constitutional chart based on their date, time, and place of birth. We encourage you to come to class with the birth data of some of your patients, particularly those with challenging conditions. Note, however, that pathologies and treatments will not be discussed in this class.
Participants will need to memorize all Chinese characters required to conduct Ba Zi readings. The meaning and classical origin of each character will be explained and participants will learn how to properly write and pronounce each symbol. To help you master these important skills, please visit “Learning Tools” to review and practice on your own.
Additionally, the Three Essentials will be defined and explained within the context of the 10 stems and 12 branches of a patient’s birth chart.
The class will take place at Eight Branches Inc. 112 Merton Street, Toronto, Ontario, M4S 2Z8, Canada. Phone: 416-925-5722.
