This 13 PDA/CPD/CEU online course will view the Shang Han Lun through the lens of obstetrics and gynecology. Through this view we will deconstruct the subtle internal structure of the Shang Han Lun/Jin Gui Yao Lue. By understanding the scaffolding that organizes the text, the entire architecture of it becomes available to the practitioner. Participants will not only learn some clinically effective ways to work with issues in gynecology, they will also leave with a way of looking at the text that will open up other possibilities for treatment in internal medicine.

During this course we will learn to skillfully apply some commonly used formulas in new ways as well as how to apply some here-to-for obscure formulas that are unsurpassed in their value for women.

Course Reviews

I was really ready for a functional view of medicine that did not include a pathogen and war with the pathogen view.  I loved the way this classic view of the body and life allow for an understanding of wellness that supports, what "knows how" in the body.  I can't wait to apply this in my clinic. ~ Leslie

I have had the good fortune to study with Sharon Weizenbaum for 15 years and have found the content and method of her teaching to be both clarifying and profound. Sharon is able to distill the classical teachings of this ancient, esteemed medical system into easily comprehended and clinically relevant material for the contemporary Western practitioner without the smoke and mirrors of the "Ancient Chinese Secrets" attitude I have found to sometimes afflict this material in other hands. Thank you, Sharon! You demystify the material while preserving the beauty and elegance of the medicine's metaphors. ~ Sheila

Sharon's courses fill all the gaps and misunderstandings I still have from TCM school and they offer information that is clinically useful immediately. ~ Sandra

Another stellar course from Sharon where one can take the information and start applying it in the clinic on Monday morning. She never fails to amaze and inspire. ~ Victoria
