JR Worsley devoted his life to transmitting teachings bestowed upon him by his revered Masters, a commitment continued by his wife and successor, Judy Worsley. JR Worsley designated the Worsley Institute (WI) as the Official Home of this lineage. WI is the only organization authorized to represent his teachings. Participating in Teacher Training (TTSM) is a very unique and special opportunity to be a part of JR’s, Judy’s, and WI’s shared mission of preserving and carrying this tradition forward for future generations.

As early as the 1970’s, JR taught Basic and Advanced Teacher Training sessions, which only WI is authorized to continue. WI is presenting, in all ways except timing, exact replicas of JR’s original TT program.

WI is pleased to announce that in 2024 it will host Basic TT, which will focus on foundational theory and presentation skills.

Central to this training is the concept that to teach something well, one must intimately know it from within. By immersing themselves in the foundational aspects of Worsley Classical Five-Element Acupuncture, participants will refine and evolve their understanding, enabling them to become better practitioners and transmit this valuable knowledge to others.

This training is only offered in person. Though Zoom meetings can serve a purpose for teaching material in certain contexts, TT is best taught in person.

Outside of scheduled class hours, there also will be homework.

Of significant note, the Worsley Institute TT team will be led by lineage leader Judy Worsley, which may be her last time teaching this program.

Both Basic and Advanced TT are pre-requisites for the Worsley Institute Leaders-in-Training (LITSM) program. 


To participate, individuals must possess a foundational understanding of Worsley Classical Five-Element Acupuncture, have a strong clinical background, complete an Application (at bottom of webpage), and be accepted into the training.

This opportunity is ideal for:

  • Those who wish to experience TT for the first time.
  • Those who completed TT in the past and would like to refresh and deepen their knowledge of Worsley Classical Five-Element Acupuncture.
  • Those who wish to share this “System of Medicine” with their patients, students, and future practitioners.
  • Those who may not have a desire to teach but want to enrich their understanding of this beautiful lineage to evolve their practice.
  • Those who would like to enjoy being with other members of this community. We make an effort to meet in a beautiful environment to heighten the learning and community atmosphere.
