An integral part of Chinese medicine detailed in the Neijing SuWen, Zhuyou was eliminated as an official department in the Ming dynasty due to Confucian influence, leaving it primarily within the purview of Daoism and Daoist priests. In this class, Daoist priests Josh Paynter, Jack Schaefer and Ross Rosen will unlock the power of this ritual healing method, detailing its history, theory, preparations, and practice. Time will be spent teaching methodology, ritual play, narrative and storytelling, as well as the formal methods for drawing and administering the talismans. Attendees will leave the weekend having learned specific talismans and incantations for a variety of ailments, including those within the categories of psychology, gastroenterology and gynecology.
Please note: this has never been taught before in the west and requires dedication, practice, and effort to be administered efficaciously.
