The Role of Emotions in Chinese Medicine
Saturday, October 27, 2012 - Sunday, October 28, 2012 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee speaks about the role of the emotions in Chinese medicine, as she has come to understand it through her extensive research in classical Chinese medical literature. Elisabeth has a long history of teaching and friendship with Tai Sophia. Along with Father Larre, she was an early inspiration for the understanding of numerology as the foundation of Taoist philosophy. She continues to inspire us with a grasp of classical theory, characters, officials, and points that is both rigorous and precise.

Elisabeth was born in Paris and studied literature, philosophy, and Chinese in Paris and Taiwan. Beginning in 1970, she collaborated with the late Fr. Claude Larre and Dr. Jean Schatz on classical Chinese thinking and medical texts. Along with Father Larre, she pioneered the translation of the earliest classical texts into French and English, thus making available a deeper understanding of Chinese philosophy and medicine in the West. Elisabeth now teaches at the Jesuit University in Paris and at the European School of Acupuncture, where she is the senior lecturer. She has written numerous books and pamphlets that have been published in French, English, and Italian, among other languages.
