"At its core, this course was an invitation to step deeply inside my body and mind, and experience a new perspective on being alive and engaging in the world through the lens of immunity.

The ideas and treatment I learned about in this course were absolutely brand new to me, material I had not previously encountered in 10+ years of study of energy medicine, Ayurveda, and Chinese medicine.

An invaluable aspect of this course were the embodiment practices for each acupuncture point. They allowed for deep understandings of point action and function to sink in. This teaching style is not a regular feature of many other courses and learning environments."

"I very much enjoyed the ring of fire course. It felt very complete, and included tons of context for the ultimate goal of the course, which is the treatment. The course was not simply learning a treatment strategy but learning where a treatment strategy sits inside of Chinese medical theory. As an acupuncture student I found it to be a wonderful primer on topics not typically covered in basic acupuncture education. Alexander is an excellent teacher who communicates with great care and forethought. I felt held throughout the entire experience, and am looking forward to taking more classes by him."

This perspective seamlessly integrates within the Chinese medical understanding of immunity, situated within an evolutionary worldview.

Module 3 - Interior Immunity

In Module Three, you will learn a comprehensive approach to 'interior immunity'. This includes learning key distinctions related to the psychological and spiritual dimensions of immunity. Very often, immunity is just thought of as a physiological system; but, in line with an integrated approach to Chinese medicine, you will discover a nuanced approach to understanding and working with the crucial role the human mind plays in immunity. This will give you more ways to help your patients and will support you and them in becoming a healthier, happier human beings.

Module 4 - Du Mai Overview

The Governor Vessel is central to healthy physiological & psychological immunity. In Module Four you will learn characteristics central to the governor vessel, including its relationship to the will, individuation, autonomy, and evolutionary memory. The Ring of Fire treatment draws upon points along the Governing Vessel, so this section serves as a broad & needed context within which the Ring of Fire treatment is situated.
