The human body is made with the same inner structures as every thing or being in the Universe, between Heaven and Earth. The organization of the different circulations reflects this analogy.

We will examine each of the various kinds of circulations : meridian or jing, connective circulations or luo, divergent circulations or jingbie, muscular circulations or jingjin. All of them are mai, which is the most general name for any kind of circulation. The generic name for the whole network of circulations and animation is : JING LUO MAI.

For each group, we start with a general description, then examine the relationships with other parts of the mai, and with the organs and functions, the blood and qi (xue qi 血氣) and the various expressions of qi. Some examples will be taken.

Institute of Daoist Traditions
The main concepts in the Daodejing


Everybody knows the Book of the Way and the Virtue (or Potency), the Daodejing, attributed to Laozi, as one of the most important texts in the Daoism, most probably composed around the turn of the third century B.C.

It is also one of the most prominent books ever written on how to find enough meaning in the universe to conduct a personal life based on what is behind and beyond this life. That makes the Daodejing a text we can study and meditate fruitfully today. It still inspires life of many.

After a general presentation of the work, we will explain some of the key concepts found in the Daodejing: Virtue, Knowledge, Non-acting.


April 13

General introduction. The composition of the work, when and by whom it was written, its historical and cultural context, its purpose … The meaning of « dao 道 » in the Daodejing.

April 20

The virtue or vital potency (de 德); the potency of the Way (Dao) by which everything is made, continuously, which makes happen and nourishes all forms of life. The potency of the sage that helps to evolve in communion with the process of life. The water is its best image; it exalts the value of suppleness and humbleness and praises the Way of the female.

April 27

What is knowledge ? How do we know what you know and what is the value of what we know ? Is there a knowledge that is of another order than what we usually call knowledge? Could it be the true knowledge which alone gives access to the Way (Dao)? At what price can we enter this great knowledge.

May 4

What is the wu wei 無為 ? Usually translated as non-acting, non-interference, no deliberate action, etc. wu wei is to let things take their own course. It is not inertia or complete passivity, but a way to cultivate oneself to diminish personal desires, interests, ambition, etc, Activities coming from this emptiness of the Heart-mind are aligned with the natural movement of life and full of an effective potency.

After an introduction showing the deep meaning of blood and qi (xue qi), we expose the normal relationships between the uterus and each of the organs and meridians concerned with the specific regulation of blood and qi in a woman.

Disorders in these relations cause illnesses. Their mechanism and treatment are understood through the knowledge of the physiology.

Based on classical texts such as the Jingui yaolüe and others, various symptoms and diseases will be discussed, such as menstrual problems, etc.

Special attention will be paid to the importance of emotions in these pathologies.
