Dreamwork and Chinese Medicine
Bob Quinn

The language and perspective of Chinese and east Asian medicine gives us a whole different glimpse into physiology, health, illness and healing.

The systems or currents of medicine we practice, gives a framework, a perspective that helps us to orient and make sense of a patient’s experience and then how we might be able to help them.

For many cultures, dreams are a powerful kind of sensing that speak with a language of their own and can carry important information from our subconscious up into that thin sliver of awareness that we usually give credit to for running the show. But dreams have their own way of holding and conveying information, and our rational mind is not particularly well suited to that particular non-verbal language.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • How Dream work fits in Chinese Medicine
  • Looking for repeated themes, getting clear on the images
  • Ling Shu and Dreams
  • Carl Jung's perspective on dreams
