Si Qi Wu Wei: Chinese Herbal Energetics
When working with herbal medicine, knowing the energetics of each herb is essential to choosing the correct herb or formula for yourself or others. In Chinese herbalism, the nature of plants, the 4 temperatures (Si Qi) and the 5 flavors (Wu Wei), have been documented for thousands of years and used as a guide for herbal formulation. As you come to know herbal energetics, your formulas will become more effective, do less harm, and enhance livelihood.
This class will include an overview of the 5 Elements of Chinese Medicine. We will taste an example of each flavor and explore the therapeutic properties of several herbs and foods.
