Study Maps The Odd Structural Similarities Between The Human Brain And The Universe

A study from the University of Bologna and the University of Verona in Italy took a look at the similarities between the human brain and the Universe. They found that, although the physical processes that drive the structure of the Universe and the structure of the human brain are extremely different, they are similar in levels of complexity and self-organization. It seems that laws that govern both may be similar - how information is processed and passed along, and how functioning is clustered.

Goes to show - we are capable of more than we think. We've literally got the power of the Universe in our heads!

Fall is officially here!

Just like the transitions of life, the seasonal transitions can be stressful to the body. The immune system is hard at work protecting us from the changing weather, pollens (ragweed or mold allergies, anyone?), and viruses that pop up this time of year.

Whether to avoid your basic colds and fall allergies or to strengthen up against the nasty COVID, Chinese medicine can do wonders to boost the Lung Qi and protect from external pathogens. Talk with your practitioner about acupuncture, herbs, foods, and other Chinese medicine wisdom to keep you healthy this fall.

The DT College Acupuncture Clinic is open Monday through Saturday to support your health needs. Get in touch to meet your team of fabulous clinical interns and licensed clinical supervisors! 828.253.8669

The river is smooth and calm this evening,
The peony flowers bloom.
The moon floats on the current.
The tide carries the stars.
— Qian Qi (Tang Dyanasty)

Peony root is a Chinese herbal medicine rockstar. Bai Shao Yao/White Peony (the peeled root) is a powerful blood tonic and Chi Shao Yao/Red Peony (the whole root) invigorates the blood. These herbs are used in many traditional formulas for everything from fatigue to skin conditions to pain. We can admire these lovely flowers even more when we appreciate their function as well as their beauty. 🌸

Look who came to visit our campus!

A family of black snakes was discovered while doing some maintenance on campus. Dr. Majebé decided to say hello!

(no snakes were harmed in the making of this video)

While the black snake is not specifically used in Chinese herbal medicine, several venomous snakes are classified as substances that clear wind-damp, open the channels, and affect the skin. They can be used to treat painful arthritic conditions and itchy skin issues.

Traditional medicine uses the whole snake, but using only the skin is also an option. It may not be as potent as using the whole snake, but it is an example of how we can use humane and sustainable herbal solutions.

We are so sorry to hear of the passing of our friend and colleague, Lorraine Harris. Lorraine served as a valued member of the Daoist Traditions faculty for 11 years. The wisdom she shared with our students was beyond any expectation, but even more important was her intrinsic ability to teach with an equal amount of knowledge and heart. Lorraine was an exemplary educator with a gift for clarity and consistency. Her enthusiasm for sharing this medicine was evidenced not only by her upbeat vibrant energy, but also her ability to hold space for her students.

One colleague described Lorraine as “embodying the ideal practitioner of Chinese medicine: attentive, caring, open, and direct. With students she was able to model how to communicate with a patient compassionately but directly about their health and then guide the patient to begin their healing journey. She was uncompromising in her expectations for her students’ education, yet flexible in her heart and mind”.

We are sending our prayers to Lorraine’s family. Lorraine’s warm smile, love for life, and true heart have left an impression that will stay with the Daoist Traditions community indelibly. ❤🙏

We know it's tempting to veg out and binge on Netflix during this time at home. But we can also use this gift of time to explore new things, especially things that benefit our health.

Spring is the time of new beginnings and renewal - the perfect time to start a new exercise routine to wake up stagnant qi from the sedentary winter.

Start the day with a morning stretch or end with an evening walk. Adapt your exercise program to an at-home workout or discover a new favorite online exercise video. Or just turn up the music and dance, dance, dance your heart out!

Movement >> keeps the qi flowing >> keeps our stress level in check and immune system strong. And who doesn't need that in these strange times!

Meet our new DT Clinic friend - holding the healing space for us while we are on pause.

A 1500 lb statue is no match for the DT team! Many thanks to everyone who helped move this big guy to his new home.

The symbol on his chest has auspiciousness and good luck for as far back as 10,000 BCE. This symbol has been used in many cultures throughout history to represent divinity and spirituality. It is directly related to Buddha and can be found carved on statues on the soles of his feet and on his heart. It is said that it contains Buddha’s mind.

Wow, these are wild times! Seeing everyone adapting so quickly - from our DT community to everywhere across the globe - is an inspiration. We are rising to this challenge. We are finding creative solutions. We are flowing with whatever comes our way.

Chinese medicine has evolved over thousands of years by responding to new health issues. New treatment strategies and new uses for acupuncture points were developed to address the health issues of the times. Herbal formulas were modified to expand their uses and new herbal substances were discovered. We are seeing this adaptation now as specialized acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbal medicines are being used to treat the current pandemic.

Keep on flowing.

"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." - Bruce Lee
