Emotions according to the Huangdi Neijing with Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée on DVD
Rochat de la Vallée discusses based on the Chinese classical and medical texts (Suwen, Ling Shu), the general vision of the emotions. From where they surge, for what reason they begin, how they are seen as movements of qi, how they disturb the regulation of life from the very inside, how they proceed to damage the health and to shorten life, how we can qualify and classify them, for instance according to the Five phases or elements, and how we can treat them.
The DVD shows how an organ may be affected by various emotions and how an emotion may affect different organs.
Also the role of the heart will be described as the centre of an individual and personal life, the place where spiritual, intellectual, mental, emotional aspects of life are unified and regulated.
A basic knowledge of the functions of the organs is helpful. Main texts on the emotions, directly translated from the classical book of medicine (Huangdi Neijing Suwen & Lingshu), will be provided to the students.
