Theme: Kampo in America – Bridging the gap between East and West
Join the High Desert Hari Society, in consortium with the New York Kampo Institute, Sun Ten Laboratories, and the Keio University Medical School Kampo Department for a two day symposium bringing together some of the brightest minds in study of Kampo today.
Kampo is becoming more popular in the US, and the manner in which it continues to spread in educational, research, clinical, and commercial settings can no longer be the work of specific individuals. Instead, it must grow and flourish on an organizational level. In bringing together a diverse group of practitioners and teachers, we seek to expand the reach of this uniquely effective herbal system.
The North American Kampo Symposium will feature numerous speakers as well as one day of hands-on training, in which fukushin abdominal diagnosis is taught and practiced with an emphasis on how findings lead to pattern diagnosis.
Saturday, May 2 will involve short presentations by guest speakers and will
include a Keynote Speaker as part of an evening social event. The list of
speakers is as follows:
From Japan: Kenji Watanabe MD (Key-note speaker)
From the UK: Gretchen De Soriano MSc, BAcC.
From the US: Nigel Dawes MA, BAcC, L.Ac.; Gregory Plotnikoff MD.
Sunday, May 3 will offer a practical, hands-on workshop on a key clinical
discipline in the Kampo tradition – Fukushin (Abdominal Diagnosis).
This workshop will be facilitated by:
Nigel Dawes MA, BAcC, L.Ac (NY).
Gretchen De Soriano MSc, BAcC.
9:00am-5:30pm with a 1 hour lunch
