The Jade Institute Vision
The Jade Institute offers advanced professional education in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, and their interface with other complementary systems of healing.
The heart of the Institute is a deep love and passion for the classical healing tradition of Oriental medicine and its integration into modern day life. We encourage a broad understanding of this medical system, embracing a cultural appreciation for the development of the medicine, a respect for the mystery and philosophy of its principles, and a commitment to the science and discipline it embodies.
We believe that through deep understanding grows heartfelt respect for, and dedication to, the role that Oriental medicine plays in the future of our world. The Jade Institute promotes this role in all its endeavors.
The Jade Institute supports the development of an open and engaged professional and educational community. By providing classes and resources for Oriental medicine practitioners, encouraging discussion and the sharing of medical skills and experience, and fostering the dialogue between Eastern and Western traditions, the intention of the Institute is to support excellence and growth through education and to facilitate partnerships in healing.
