Using Ba Zi to Determine Personality Type and Susceptible Illnesses, Part I | Acupuncture Live CEUs

Class Preview:
The Ba Zi is a branch of Chinese metaphysics that analyzes a person's birth chart and is based on the five phases theory and the system of heavenly stems and earthly branches. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have traditionally believed that time had a significant impact on disease. Ba Zi determines whether a person is vulnerable to certain influences as they grow through life. These can be related to health, wealth, career, status, education, relationships, spirituality, and other a variety of other factors. By calculating and preparing they dynamics of a person's Ba Zi ("eight characters") based on the person's year, month, day, time, and city of birth, illuminating patterns can be identified.

The period of birth is a combination of different simultaneous cycles, and we are under the impact of major and subtle movements that affect our potential energy on our perception of ourselves, our surroundings, and our mental and physical health during this time. This effect might reveal our proclivity for positive and unfavorable moments in our lives.
