Addictions are pervasive in our culture, and include such diverse compulsive behaviors as addictions to drugs, alcohol, food, purging, sex, pornography, exercise, gambling, computers, “crack” berries, and shopping.

Some forms of addictions entail physical dependence, a state in which the body relies on a substance for normal functioning, and goes through withdrawal symptoms when it is suddenly removed.

Other forms of addictions involve psychological dependence, recurring obsessions about or compulsions to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences.

A meridian approach to working with addictions can broaden and deepen the work of helping people overcome these distressing behaviors.

In this two-day class, Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen will elucidate how the eight extraordinary meridians, the divergent channels, the luo-connecting vessels, the primary meridians, and the sinew channels can be used to treat various facets of a person’s body, mind, and spirit, and serve as invitations to overcome psychological and/or physical addictions.
