The Heart in Chinese Medicine is deeply linked with the Spirit and in these conversations we shall put great focus on the spiritual aspects of the Heart

Let us delve into “the Great Spirit”, healing on the level of Spirit and the deep transforming journey of the patient towards more health, healing and well-being. Being in the field of Chinese medicine and the healing art we can treat from the inside out and go to the roots of an illness, to emotions and treat on a soul level. 

Cultivation of the practitioner for personal growth and the importance of the patient – practitioner relationship, all for the benefit of your own journey.  

There is also the fascinating relationship between practitioner and the Spirit, both the spirit of the patient and one’s own Spirit connection. 

The intention is to inspire, teach, empower and share the Art of Heart linked to the important spiritual aspects of our ancient Chinese Tradition and profound wisdom. 

These conversations with exceptional, thought-leading, influential experts will open your eyes and heart to work even more on a Shen Spirit Level with the “Art of the Heart” approach for your patients in your practices and for you as a teacher of life.  

We are going to bring in into practical use on how to work with the spiritual aspects of the tradition and we are all part of the great force of the linage.  

Ready to thrive even more as a heart driven practitioner with focus on the ART of the HEART, its more refined spiritual aspects and its relation with the spirits?

Lorie Eve Dechar.png

Lorie Eve Dechar

My journey began with a love of language, art, and dance that I explored as an undergraduate at Bennington College. This study led to a decade of work as an environmental activist, gardener, and poet and then to the discovery of Chinese medicine. After receiving my Master’s degree from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in 1985, my earlier love of art continued to inform my clinical work with Chinese medicine. For me, creativity, beauty, and self-expression are central to the healing process. My post-graduate work with Gene Gendlin of the Focusing Institute, at the Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and Training in Manhattan, and nearly twenty years of study with Jungian analyst Nathan Schwartz-Salant bring a psychological dimension to my acupuncture practice.  

Despite my interest in Western psychology, I remained committed to the practice of acupuncture and believed that I could find a way to bring Eastern and Western psychological approaches together in the treatment room. My discovery of the Five Spirits – the Taoist version of the chakra system – offered the connecting link. Writing Five Spirits was a journey as well as an initiation that led me to discover a new way of practicing the ancient art of Chinese medicine in contemporary Western settings. For the past sixteen years, I have been delighted to have the opportunity to share my multidimensional approach to healing not only with my patients but also with students at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in Manhattan, the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto, Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, and at conferences and workshops in the UK and Europe as well as through our ongoing Mentorship programs

My commitment to Alchemical Healing grows out of a passionate interest in the question of how human beings transform the challenges of life into opportunities for healing and new possibilities.
