This introduction to Stems and Branches (aka Five Movements and Six Energies, wuyun liuqi 五運六氣) contextualizes the foundations of practice. We will look at the world of space and time, in terms of Five and Six, in detail. We will begin to open a door onto the universe, an ordered and constant cosmos, which follows natural laws that can be determined.
By understanding the cyclical nature of time and space we will start to learn about Stems and Branches, which are the thread that weaves together many aspects of Chinese thought. This 90 minute webinar is a necessary introduction to the two following webinars focusing on Stems and Branches individually.
