On becoming a Daoist Priest

A heartfelt thank you to Josh Paynter and Jack Schaefer for trailblazing a path and organizing one of the most profound experiences that I have ever been a part of. The past few years of preparation and mentoring for this Daoist priest ordination trip have been amazing and marks not a culmination, but rather a more formal beginning of our Daoist community and family.

2018 Year of the Dog Happenings

Indian Lake houseWith the recent ushering in of 2018 and the soon to arrive Year of the Dog, I am looking forward to all the good things on the horizon.

This spring will mark the beginning of a new venture and a home for my teachings of the Shen-Hammer and Classical Chinese medicine lineages on the 41 acre Indian Lake Adirondack property once belonging to my mentor, Dr. Leon Hammer. Currently in the process of purchasing this land, I will be renovating the house and 2,500 sq ft barn, making it suitable as a teaching and retreat center. The land will host teachings for these profound lineages, as well as Daoist teachings and meditation retreats, and will be available to others interested in teaching in this magical and transformative setting.

In addition, my book, Heart Shock: Diagnosis and Treatment of Trauma with Shen-Hammer and Classical Chinese Medicine, published by Singing Dragon, will be available on June 21, the first day of summer in the solar calendar, associated with the Heart.  This will also mark the beginning of me teaching this material in more detail in Indian Lake.  Here is a link to the pre-order with a 40% discount:  http://a.co/8vU5zOA    

I will also be offering a certification program for the treatment of trauma which will consist of 6 separate weekends of instruction and will provide 84 NCCAOM PDA/CEUs.

In addition, I will continue to teach all levels of Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis and Classical pulse diagnosis, including my synthesis of the two.

Towards the end of the year, a trip to China and Daoist temples in Qing Cheng and other locales with my good friend, Josh Paynter is highly anticipated.

I look forward to sharing all these experiences, places and teachings with all interested.

For those of you interested in the trauma certification and/or pulse courses and/or teaching your own workshops/retreats on this property, please feel free to contact me.

Happy New Year.IMG_0245

BUCM Conference May 24, 2017

A wonderful experience lecturing and demonstrating Shen-Hammer pulse at BUCMs Characteristic Therapy Workshop for Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It was an honor to stand in for Dr. Hammer and be included and welcomed as a representative of the Menghe lineage.  A special treat to spend the day with Dr. Ding Yie, great grandson of Ding Ganren, and nephew to Ding Jiwan, Dr. John Shen’s teacher.
