Our Jing Fang Lecture Series is the compulsary theory component of the Jing Fang Apprenticeship that all apprentices must complete. Typically, a Jing Fang apprentice will study the Parts One and Two in their first year, and Parts Three and Four in their second year.
The Series can also be studied as a standalone course for qualified herbalists wishing to develop their Jing Fang skills. However, these lectures are not a substitute for clinical experience, and we would recommend attendance at clinic to more clearly understand how this system works in practice.
Written and presented by Frances Turner, the Series is a systematic A-Z presentation of the fundamentals of Jing Fang and includes over 60 hours of audio lectures with PDF slides. A breakdown of each Part can be seen further down.
With classical references to the Shang Han Za Bing Lun and the Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing, the Series includes discussions of both herbs and formulas. The Series is illustrated by many modern-day case examples from the clinics of Dr Feng Shi-Lun in Beijing from 2014 to 2016, and from our own SCCH.
