The Soft Touch of Moonlight
Transformative and Nourishing Power
of the Taiyin Network
In part three of this series of live events on the six phasic model of cosmology and physiology, we will continue with an exploration of the Taiyin System. We will examine its significance as the source of all post-natal energies, taking into account the fundamental yin-yang dynamic of its energetic nature of damp earth and its primary function of yùnhuà (運化), transporting and transforming.
Building from Chinese medical first principles, this talk will provide a detailed structure of the Taiyin landscape. We will unpack the Taiyin constellation of anatomical resonance, energetic dynamics, and psycho-emotional expression in order to better comprehend the relevant lines of the Shang Han Lun. We will also break down Taiyin level treatment strategies into fundamental categories based on their principle action of circulation and tonification.
In this real time event participants can expect to develop a deeper ability to:
- recognize the physiological and psycho-emotional components of the Taiyin network
- clearly differentiate Taiyin conditions from other stages of pathology
- formulate cohesive and effective treatment strategies for different forms of Taiyin disease
- recognize the underlying principles of Taiyin formula construction
- appreciate the outer display of the Spirit and its essential virtues as an integral aspect of diagnosis

From the pre-natal foundation of the Shaoyin, the Taiyin network governs the expansion of all life’s post-natal energies. The healthy embodiment of damp earth is a richness of interconnection that nourishes on every level.
