The Worsley Insitute is hosting an exciting introductory retreat for those wanting to learn more about Worsley Five Element Acupuncture. This course will run concurrent with the yearly MAP training, allowing an opportunity for you to meet and spend time with Five Element Practitioners who have been practicing for years. WI has put together a strong and diverse teaching team, including Judy Worlsey, Hilary Skellon, and Khosrow Khalighi.
Through the course of the 3.5 day training, you will be exposed to the core foundations of Worsley Five Element Acupuncture, a system of medicine based on natural laws. You will not only expand your knowledge of the seasons, the elements, the officials, but also learn about unique attributes related to this wonderful system of acupuncture such as Blocks to Treatment (Possession, Aggressive Energy, Husband/Wife, Exit/Entry, Akabane), specific needle and moxa techniques, pulse taking, and so much more.
At the end of the weekend, there will be an opportunity to witness the clinical application of these teachings by observing a patient consultation by Judy Worsley. The consultation will include discussion of the Diagnosis and treatment planning for the patient.
By the end of the weekend, you will have been exposed to the depths of what this medicine offers to you as a practitioner and to your patients. If your curiosity has been piqued, there will be opportunities for further training to practice the system in its completeness.
About the Teaching Team
All teachers have completed Worsley Five Element Acupuncture Teacher Training and have been invited to help teach a portion of this introductory course. We have selected an excellent cohort of teachers so that you will have a rich and diverse group working with you. Judy Worsley, Hilary Skellon, and Khosrow Khalighi will be teaching a portion of the course in addition to several other senior teachers.
Practical Sensory Development
Diagnosis is done through utilizing all of our senses. Professor Worsley inspired his students to develop as “instruments of nature”, and we carry on this tradition by including easy and fun exercises to hone our capacities to see color, hear sound, smell odor and feel emotion.
