Classical Chinese Medicine and Psychology: An Introduction

  • Friday, September 30, 2016; 6:30 PM-10:00 PM
  • Location: Roots and Wings Yoga and Healing Arts
    317 North Main Street, Natick, MA 01760

$75 or $350 for entire weekend with other teachers on Saturday and Sunday

Daoist Psychology is based upon the cosmology and worldview of the ancient Chinese Daoists and acupuncturists of the Classical Chinese tradition detailed in the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine and other classical texts.

Understanding Daoist Psychology gives us the ability to see others and ourselves from this unified perspective. It shows us how our human suffering is created and how we can be healed from this universal condition to restore the original humanity that we have since lost.

This workshop includes both a lecture as well as a specific acupressure formula designed to allow participants to practice and synthesize this conceptual material. Come prepared to give and receive a Daoist inspired acupressure treatment!

Achieve Higher Levels of Healing: Chinese Medicine and the Daodejing

Friday, October 21, 2016 6:00-10:00 PM

Saturday, October 22, 2016 10:00-6:00 PM

Sunday, October 23, 2016 10:00-6:00 PM

  • Location: Roots and Wings Yoga and Healing Arts
    317 North Main Street, Natick, MA 01760


This five-part course presents how the higher levels of healing can be accomplished with acupuncture and acupressure through the underlying principles laid out in ancient Chinese classics, most notably the Dodjīng. It includes a higher form of knowledge that comes from the integration of the Head and the Heart, or the Do and the D, as they are called in the Dodjīng; a comprehensive and integrated cosmology; higher and more comprehensive levels of healing that take place through the balancing of the Virtues; a comprehensive worldview called the Order of the Universe that is revealed through the organization of the major themes of the Dodjīng into a Thematic Context; and the practical application of these principles in clinical practice.

Part 1

(Friday: 6:30 PM-10 PM) introduces the concept of the Three Levels of Healing. Understanding these levels and using them together is essential to Restoring Humanity and alleviating the Suffering and troubles of the world. To do so we will explore a code hidden within the Dodjīng that only emerges through the application of the Five Phases to the Dodjīng and results in the overall perspective of its Thematic Context.

Part 2

(Saturday: 10:00 AM-1:00 PM) continues the definition of Do from Part 1 to its Manifestation into the world, which establishes the Pattern for how the unification of the Body/Mind/Spirit is directly connected to the cosmology of the world-at-large. The important part of this cosmology links All Things together in a universal inclusivity according to various ratios of Yin and Yang. We will conclude Part 2 with the legendary story of Lǎozis birth and its amazing connection to this higher level of practice.

Part 3

(Saturday: 2:00 PM-6:00 PM) defines Virtue, the D of the Do-d-jīng, in relation to Higher and Lower Virtues. The Higher Virtues are the five non-reactionary impulses of the Heart/Mind, while the Lower Virtues consist of psycho-emotional reactions on the Spirit and Emotional levels. These are then defined as the Pre and Postnatal aspects of Human Nature. The Prenatal Original Spirit is good because it retains its inherent connection to All Things and Do while the Postnatal True Nature separates us from ourselves and from All Things. According to the Highest Level of Healing, this separation is responsible for all the Suffering in the world and also leads directly to individual health problems on the psycho-physical level. In other words, the Suffering in the world-at-large is directly connected to Suffering on the individual level so that correcting problems within the individual will also have a dramatic impact on the world-at-large.

Part 4

(Sunday: 10:00 AM-1:00 PM) covers the Fragmentation from Do and its associated worldview including the degeneration from an orderly universe to one that is random and haphazard and resulting in Sickness, Disease, and Suffering. These are then re-examined from a Five Phase perspective that shows how these actions are only normal Five Phase imbalances carried to the sociological extreme, which is called Confusion and Disorder in the Dodjīng.

Part 5

(Sunday 2:00 PM-5:00 PM) is called Embracing Do and shows how this Fragmentation can be reversed by Returning to Do as Source by following special principles laid out in the Dodjīng that restore Yin-Yang Balance and Harmony to the individual so that our Inner Potential can be reclaimed and humanity on the personal AND the global level can be restored.

Classical Chinese Medicine and the Daodejing: An Introduction to Level II

Friday, January 13, 2017; 6:30-10:00 PM

  • Location: Roots and Wings Yoga and Healing Arts
    317 North Main Street, Natick, MA 01760

$75 or $350 for entire weekend with other teachers on Saturday and Sunday

This one-part three-hour course presents the three levels of healing in ancient Chinese Acupuncture and how they can be accomplished with acupuncture and acupressure through the underlying principles of Daoist psychology and how they are developed further in the ancient Chinese classic called the Dodjīng, often translated as The Way and its Empowerment.

This class continues from Level I by explaining how the Five Phases of acupuncture are used throughout the Dodjīng to further Empower, Chinese Medicine. Level 1 provided the basic Five-Phase context. Here in Level 2 we will see how the Five Phases lead to a deeper level of Empowerment by examining the specific chapters related to them and the Dodjīng.


Dennis has a deep understanding of the Dodjīng and bringing this depth and awareness into your practice is phenomenal! The deeper meaning of what your greater good in humanity is, will then radiate into your practice as a healer and infuse all those clients lucky enough to receive a treatment from you. This is not just a onetime course; it is truly a way of life, a way of thinking, a way of being a way of feeling. Why does understanding the Do make you better healer? Because when clients come to you they are in a state of pain/discomfort, and on an energetic level they are seeking a calm, loving presence, which by practicing and learning the Do you will exude this presence. Highly recommended to learn this for your practice, and live it for you.

Mr. Willmont brings extensive Chinese cultural experiences and understanding to the presentation of Dodjīng. His unique and memorable interpretation incorporates personal memories with noteworthy historical landmarks and anecdotes.

Hobbie Cao, L.Ac.

[Dennis, I am writing you] To let you understand how strongly your books have changed my practice and how I teach. I wanted to let you know that I have recommend those books to over 100 students in the past 6 years. I was Niki Biltons's apprentice for some time and her teaching assistant; we used your books constantly. (My copies now tattered). I am now teaching Five Element Acupuncture at the Won School of Graduated studies in PA and Eastern school of acupuncture in NJ. I reference these books all the time [and particularly enjoy] the new and beautiful hardback editions.
