Become an “Imperial Mentee”! For a monthly fee of $6 or yearly fee of $66 (6 being twice the trinity of Heaven, Humanity, and Earth, three Yīn and three Yáng, the Four Directions and Up and Down, in an even number, associated with Yīn and Earth, to make sure my offerings are substantial), you can deepen your studies and practice of Chinese medicine, become part of a supportive academically-oriented online community of critical thinkers and dedicated practitioners, support Sabine’s research and teaching, and perhaps even learn how to pet a dragon or move like a slug. Here are some of the concrete benefits that your monthly subscription for the price of a fancy cup of coffee brings you:
Access to subscriber-only unpublished content that I commit to adding to on at least a weekly basis in response to YOUR questions and interests:
draft translations from key philosophical and medical texts (37 uploaded so far, including 20 Neijing chapters)
samples from current book projects that I am not ready or willing to share with the general public, and the ability to provide me with critical feedback and thereby shape my publications;
The chance to ask me nerdy and specialized questions that will give me an excuse to do some research and dig deeper;
A Question & Answer section where I will post answers to subscribers’ questions regularly;
Access to sample syllabi and to all course pages for current Imperial Mentees:
History and Humanities (Religion, Art, Poetry, etc.) of Imperial China
Chinese Medical History: From Shang Shamanism to Mao’s Medicine for the People
Literary Chinese for CM Practitioners, Part I: Basic Vocabulary and Grammar plus Foundational Medical Terminology and Passages
Literary Chinese for CM Practitioners, Part II: Intermediate Vocabulary and Grammar, Introductory Readings in Classical Literature
Literary Chinese for CM Practitioners, Part III: Advanced Medical Terminology and Selected Readings in Medical Classics
FREE 30-minute introductory consultation (skype, phone, or in person) for yearly memberships. I look forward to hearing from you here;
An advisory voice in my choice of topics for future book projects and proposed courses or lectures to offer at retreats or conferences, perhaps even the chance to create exactly the class you want where you want it. For that and any other feedback or ideas about this site and my offerings, please use this Members-Only Feedback form.
The knowledge that you are concretely and substantively supporting me and my team, allowing us to refine our offerings and produce more content.
Future possibilities: podcasts? videos? a members-only forum where you can “talk” to each other? The sky is the limit…
