    If you are interested in learning an archetype system that can help you understand your patients more, then this is the workshop for you. Even more exciting is the fact that once you know this archetype system you can learn more about anyone – your friends, family – even yourself!

    On the surface, it might seem like Numerology and Chinese medicine have nothing in common, but this assumption is wide of the mark. It is accurate to say that Numerology was created in Greece whereas, China created Chinese medicine. It is also accurate to say that Greece and China had little, or nothing, to do with one another when Numerology was created, in the middle 500’s BCE.

    Chinese medicine and philosophy, as you probably know, involves a lot of numbers. The Three Powers, Four Levels, Five Elements, Six Divisions, Seven Emotions, are just some of the myriads of systems in Chinese medicine that use numbers to define them.

    Numerology does likewise as it attempts to explain each person’s archetype. For the most part there are 9 numbers in this archetype system. Of these 9 Numerology numbers, there are ‘Ruling’ or ‘Life Path’ numbers. There are ‘Personal Year’ numbers; and the numbers of your date of birth can also provide you with the ‘Arrows of Pythagoras’.

    What is interesting here, is that a lot of these numbers point towards a relationship with the Chinese medicine organ system. Further, there is an interesting connection between Numerology and the Five Element Archetypes as well as the Five Spirits. That being the case, you can treat a patient within their Numerology numbers and arrows using specific acupuncture point combinations.

    Overall, this workshop will give you tools that you can use in clinic immediately. So, join me for a fascinating workshop that will almost certainly change the life of your patients, yourself and the people close to you.

    • Participants are provided with additional numerology material (beyond the PowerPoint slides) to help with analysing, assessing, and diagnosing.
    • Bonus article on ‘Numerology and the 27 Club’.
