Course Description

This month’s DAOM module discusses the concepts of Aging and Longevity, emotions, Sanity and Insanity and Wei (limpness). Each day will cover one topic or concept in depth. Each day will be spent examining the context of the topic through the lens of the classical Chinese Texts. Learners will be invited on a journey of deep exploration on how the classics inform the notion of the topics in relation to today’s ever-changing world. Elisabeth will discuss why specific characters were used and what the translations mean based on cultural nuances.
