Principle of power of Words in Acupuncture Medicine
Three primary virtues: valor, wisdom, and benevolence.
WHAT IS HARI (Program)?
HARI is a complete session system based on the evaluation system of Traditional Japanese Meridian Therapy (Keiraku-chiryo) and five phases (dimension) and eight power model derived from theoretical foundations of Japanese Classics KOTOTAMA.
The Hari system is a flexible approach that draws from thevarious strengths of acupuncture schools:
KOTOTAMA (Spirit of Word/Ancient Japanese Yin-Yang, Five dimension and Eight power)
KEIRAKU-CHIRYO (Japanese Meridian Therapy) powered by Ki Shinpo
Supportive systems and methods
Kikei, Shigo and etc. (EV & Midday-Midnight and etc.)
Kyu (direct & indirect Moxibustion) include the Moxa on the handle/root of the needle
Ketsubon (ST12), Kigai (ST30) and ST (sacroiliac joint) treatment
Shiraku (Bloodletting)- Advanced Seminar
Kinkei (Muscle C. with Fire N.)-Advanced Seminar
Shoni-Hari (Pediatrics) -Advanced Seminar
Advanced Pulse Quality in six position ulse Dx. -Advanced Seminar
Shinkiko (Qi Gong Therapy) -Advanced Seminar
This is an extraordinary opportunity to study a truly energetic and comprehensive system based on touching and super-superficial needle techniques. Rather than strong stimulation, all the patient usually feels is deep relaxation and awakening of special phenomenon within the patient know as a “return to nature”.
A large portion of the program is dedicated to hands on training (Sesshin) and feedback (Ki-monitoring by pulse quality dx.). This is the key to really learning Hari and producing results in your clinic. In particular, Mind/Body/Spirit posture and Kototama techniques are incorporated in the program to improve the practitioner's health and quality of the treatment.
By the end of the program, the student will have many strategies and techniques to treat the most challenging cases.
What you will learn ?
We are very pleased to have you over for theHari Program in US. Along with instruction in the fundamental essence of Hari. Mr. Kuwahara will divulge new facets of this ever-evolving life medicine.
Hari works within the heart of Japanese Ancient (Kototama) Acu-Medicine.
Its theoretical foundation is based in the Five phase/dimensional model derived from the Japanese classicsKoji-kiand Nihon-Shoki and grounds itself clinically with Ki (E-Ki) evaluation Pulse dx. methods. The Hari systemhas a flexible approach to local treatment which draws from the strengths of various Japanese classical acupuncture practices and the Chinese classics Su Wen, Ling Shu, and Nang Jing.
Life-style Hari study develops the practitioner’s awareness in the Kū 空---Mu 無 and high dimensional quality of Ki.
GOAL ANDTOPICS OF FUNDAMENTAL HARI PROGRAM
Essence of Hari Practice:
Know oneself for (Dispersion / Misogi) and the beginning of the universe (Tonification / Kuni Umi)
Diagnostic process and Treatment in updated Hari focuses on:
Three dimensional steps to assess the SHO (Pattern of Unbalance and Treatment Strategy).
1.Intuitive (Kototama=Shin and SHO) Seventh-Dimension.
2.TJM (E-ki flow-change in the meridians) Sixth-D.
3.TCM (Ki in the physical body) Fifth-D.
Emphasizing pulse and superficial skin palpation dx. as well as clairvoyance through your hands and in your meditative state of mind. With Teishin (UTT) method. we refine our palpation and Ki diagnosis skills, learn and practice live point location and finding “Volcano points”and Hara Ki dx.
We will refine our Feeling of the obtaining, coming and going of Ki, while focusing on “Ki arrival”
(Kuni-Umi), the liberation of Ja-Ki (Misogi), and Long Distance tx. method (Shinkiko).
Ki feedback methods: Evaluation of the tx.
The evaluation system centers on the E-Ki changes in Aha-mation (telepathic intuition) or feedback from changes in patient’s and/or practitioner’s pulse to monitor the before, during, and after treatment.
A)Abdominal Ki Dx by new relation points on the Hara w/Fukujyu-shin
B)SHO determination for Root with SHIGO, Extra Vessel system.
C)Easy and quick Hara dx, the re-discovery of the HT SHO, and usage of the HT channel for SP SHO.
And needless to say,…
We brush up on our original Japanese meridian therapy work
²Determining the Primary and Secondary SHO (Pattern of Unbalance and Treatment Strategy)
²Point selection, based on Nanjing Ch. 68, 69, 75
²Pulse quality dx. in Six Positions
²Oshide/Sashide, Body and Spiritual posture
QUALITY ANDPOWER UP OF the HARI
Ki & Breathing Exercises in Kototama Meditation
We practice Hari in meditative stage with Kototama words to heighten the quality of our Ki, and power up through breathing exercises.
Note on the Hari Training
This is an extraordinary opportunity to study "real Japanese acupuncture," a truly energetic and comprehensive system that does not rely on stimulating the nervous system through "de qi" sensation. Rather than strong stimulation, all the patient usually feels is profound. The theoretical aspects of Hari are easily mastered so most of the seminar time is used for hands on training and feedback. This is the key to really learning Hari and producing results in your clinic practice. The seminar format allows you to learn, have questions answered and develop skills while practicing with live feedback from instructor Mr. Kuwahara and members of the Hari society. In Addition: Students are invited to the Boston Hari Society toA practice sessions of Hari as a free tutorial class.
