About this course
Healing the Yi - Intuitive Eating & Chinese Medicine
*Live Webinar Sunday February 27th 2022 9am-6pm PST*
8 CA / NCCAOM CEUs (approved)
This course focuses on unpacking diet culture, weight stigmatization and unhealthy obsessions with thinness, dieting and even clean eating. We take a deep look into the Yi spirit, learn to listen to it and befriend it as it applies to us along with the other spirits. We will look at the science behind why dieting doesn’t work and why weight is actually not a risk factor for disease or death. We also dip our toe into Intuitive Eating, what that is, what it means and how we can help our patients with putting down dieting for good, and tuning in to what brings them joy, peace and progress. This course helps us to call in our Yi, and begin to work with it and enjoy all that it helps us with, releasing codependency, healing from disordered eating and body image, letting go of circular thinking and finally being able to manifest our ideas into reality.
The Yi spirit is perhaps one of the lesser known or understood of the 5 Spirits, yet it is an integral part of how we exist in the world and manifest our ideas into reality. Without the Yi, we simply don’t accomplish much, we don’t live our uniqueness into the World. We often know the Yi for its association with the Earth element and the Spleen and know that disordered eating can be a big factor in a patient with a Yi disturbance, yet addressing this is a very delicate balance of subtle change with compassionate understanding. The Yi helps us to stand our ground, set boundaries and ask for what we need and accept help when we need it. Modern day diet culture injects a hefty dose of shame into practically everyone’s psyche, particularly those who don’t fit the mold of the ‘perfect figure.’ This rampant disregard for true health and beauty, compulsory and chronic dieting or exercise contributes to an entire society and culture that exhibits some element of Yi disturbance. The Health at Every Size movement aims to de-stigmatize weight and help patients learn to take action on their health while not aiming to lose weight, to truly learn to love ourselves and stand up for what we know is right for us.
For non-Acupuncturists who are energy healers or therapists or Nutritionists - this course is a great option for anyone who has a background in Chinese Medicine theory, the Five Spirits and / or Five Element Theory who is also interested in a new approach to HAES / Intuitive Eating.
