The inner library of 5 emotions

Date(s): 05 March 2021

Time: 10am - 5pm

Eligibility: Acupuncture graduates and 2nd and 3rd year students

Venue: College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading


Regardless of our CF, we experience all of the emotions within our daily lives.  As practitioners, part of our 5-element skills involve our understanding of how emotions are provoked, experienced and manifest differently in each of us and how CFs influence this process.

This is a wonderful opportunity for us as practitioners to witness how each of the five elements emotionally operates within us.  In this experiential workshop we will be exploring the psychological and emotional aspects of each of the elements and how they relate to our patients and to us as practitioners.  By re-examining the subtleties of the five emotions we can fine tune and add to our own ‘inner library’ to develop our practice of this wonderful system of medicine.


Kim Chan is a CICM graduate and faculty member and has been in practice in west London for more than 20 years. Sarah Matheson has practised in Brighton and London for more than 20 years. She teaches about the Five Elements here and in Norway.
