Translating Ancient Chinese Wisdom into Medicine for Today


Join the flock!

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 sample syllabi and to all course pages for current Imperial Mentees:

    • Early Chinese History, Religion, Cosmology, and Philosophy

    • 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.
