In this episode with Ethan Murchie, we talk about all things martial arts and the classic texts of Chinese medicine. Ethan is the founder of the Montreal Gongfu Research Center (Gongfu, more commonly known as Kungfu). He is a veteran practitioner of many Chinese martial arts including Taichi, Xingyi, and Bagua and has practiced Chinese medicine or 20 years.
His path into Gongfu and Chinese medicine began as a teen when a rapid growth spurt gave way to lung complications. Where surgery saved his life but left him debilitated, ancient practices steered him onto a path of healing.
Now Ethan is a student of classical Chinese language. We talk about his recent teachings of the Shang Han Lun, his research and ongoing passion for the Huang Di Nei Jing, and his captivation with the Yi Jing. And we explore how for the last 5 years he has expanded his vocabulary, use, and understanding of Chinese.
This is a captivating episode for the Chinese medicine enthusiast who wants to bring the medicine inward for personal growth and healing.
