About the Event

Following up on Diane's Classical Chinese Obstetrics course in 2018, this course will explore all aspects of bonding and differentiation between mother and child. Beginning with birth itself, children establish a recurring pattern of breaking from and reestablishing a bond with their mother at each new milestone of their development. This class will examine each of these milestones from the perspective of both mother and child, and look to classical Chinese models and interventions to help assist in optimal childhood development and maternal wellness. Diane's teachings are informed by the lineage of Jeffrey Yuen and decades of clinical practice. Please join us for what is sure to be an extraordinary weekend!
