More about the Instructor:

Sabine Wilms is the author and translator of more than a dozen books on Chinese medicine. With a PhD in East Asian Studies and Medical Anthropology, she specializes in bringing ancient Chinese wisdom to life. In addition to writing, translating, and publishing her work through her company Happy Goat Productions, she lectures at conferences and schools around the world and is on the faculty at the College of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine.

Some of her favorite topics are gynecology, pediatrics, medical ethics, and “nurturing life” as envisioned in the Classics. In addition to Sun Simiao’s writings on gynecology and pediatrics and the Divine Farmer’s Classic of Materia Medica (Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing), she has translated two books on Wang Fengyi’s system of “Five Element Virtue Healing” and is currently working on a book on the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, Plain Questions (Huangdi Nei Jing, Suwen) Chapter Five, the “Great Discourse on the Resonant Manifestations of Yin and Yang.”

With a strong academic background in early Chinese philosophy, science, cosmology, and language, she is known for her historically and culturally sensitive approach to Chinese Medicine but also sees it as a living, effective, ever-changing, and much needed response to the issues of our modern times. She lives happy as a clam on Mutiny Bay on Whidbey Island near Seattle.
