I’m really excited to let everyone know that my colleague and friend, Ben Walker, is organizing the ICEAM Shang Han Lun series to take place in Boston, starting in June. I highly recommend this series. All of the instructors for the program are excellent.

Dr. Versluys is one of the few Westerners to have received his full medical training in China. He spent a total of twelve years at the Chinese medical universities of Wuhan, Beijing and Chengdu, where he pursued his Bachelor, Master and Doctorate degrees in Chinese medicine.
In 1999, Dr. Versluys met Dr. Zeng Rongxiu 曾榮修, under whom he trained in traditional Shanghan Lun discipleship for 13 years. Dr. Zeng was the last living disciple of the great Shanghan pulse master Tian Heming 田鶴鳴. During his long career as an internal medicine doctor in Chengdu, he synthesized a highly effective system of constitutional approaches to chronic illness. He was known for his unrelenting enthusiasm for clinical precision and the healing power of classical herbal formulas. Dr. Zeng passed the leadership of his lineage, his personal writings, and all Tian lineage materials to his main disciple, Dr. Versluys, and the Institute of Classics in East Asian Medicine, where his legacy is now secured for posterity.
