This course presents some of the findings resulting from Prof. Fruehauf’s life work about the ancient origins of the 12 organ networks of Chinese medicine. His research reveals that the system of the Chinese organ systems was developed as a microcosmic version of cyclically manifesting universal powers, which had been described in detail in the preceding cosmological texts of China and other cultures. Symbolic and mythological markers associated with each of these functional cycles clearly identify specific systems of natural functioning and their corresponding organ networks as distinctly male or female. This course explores some of the premier gender archetypes among this pantheon of 12 functional “gods”.
