    In this full day of lectures Dr Keown will systematically build a model of the body that is both beautifully simple and completely consistent with Chinese medicinal theory. This model is called the Six Divisions and was first mentioned in the Shang Han Lun in the 2nd Century AD.

    The Six Divisions is, arguably, the only model of the body that you require; and, is so complete that Western medicine can be subsumed within it. Importantly, every aspect of the body from arteries through to the zygomatic arch can be placed within the divisions. As a result practitioners can free up valuable thinking space for the important task of getting the treatment right!

The outline for the days lectures will be:

    Morning Session 1

    The Western Model of the Body
    The Proof of Divisions - Germ Layers
    The Three Divisions and Jellyfish
    The Six Divisions and Complex Animals
    The Role of each Division.

    Each division will then be considered separately with the following points covered:

    Divisions and their Environmental Influence
    The Organs of the Divisions and their Function.
    The Tissue of the Division.
    The Anatomy of the Channel.
    Pathology of the Division.
    Clinical Examples

    Morning Session 2

    Taiyang - Skin, bladder and autonomic nervous system.
    Shaoyang - Fascia and Lymph

    Afternoon Session 1

    Afternoon Session 2

    Jueyin - Peritoneum, pericardium, pleural channel and liver.
