Class Update with Elisabeth Rochat

I had returned home from my class with Elisabeth Rochat and was incredibly inspired and humbled at the same time. This was a rare opportunity for me to spend time with a woman who is considered the “godmother” of Chinese Medicine.  In the picture I am standing in the middle and Elisabeth is standing behind me to the left.  On the right behind me is my teacher Lonny Jarrett who I owe immense gratitude for shaping who I am today as a practitioner and as a person.  What an awesome group of women with the singular focus and intention of bringing Chinese medicine to the furthest we can possibly go!

The main topic of the course was women’s issues as they are translated in the Jin Gui Yao Lui, a classic text on Chinese Medicine.  Again, I am amazed at the wealth of information there is in books that existed hundreds of years ago.  This weekend we were given a glimpse of what is out there and humbled by how much more there is to learn.
