Exploration of the Extraordinary Vessels: an Invitation to Understanding Oneself as Well as Others

With Linda Boggie DVM, CVA (IVAS), FAAVA

November 15 - 19, 2023

The Extraordinary Vessels are the foundational system of channels according to Chinese medical theory. The formation of this channel system begins in the dividing ovum, and as the embryo and subsequent fetus develop, their energetics and pathways are continually laid down, assuring the development of an individual.  All other channel systems are birthed by the Extraordinary Vessels, which continue to support the body’s structure and function throughout an individual’s life. They will also play a continual role in supporting the other channels systems of the body, such as the Sinew and Primary channels.

The Qing Qi Ba Mai not only provide the blueprint for an individual’s structure, physical strengths and weaknesses, but they also support the mental and emotional capabilities to deal with the challenges that time presents as one ages.  Understanding the breadth of support the Vessels provide for an individual’s continued development in life gives the practitioner options to see a patient’s struggle with challenges, external or internal, and offer other treatment strategies that can be integral to provide healing and stabilization.  They are also an invitation to explore one’s own development, response to challenges in life, and allow the practitioner the ability to reflect and grow on their own path in this life.
