Everyday Foods: Looking Through the Lens of Chinese Philosophy-A Talk by Andrew Sterman, Practitioner of Chinese Medical Dietary Therapy and Chinese Herbs accompanied by Ann Cecil-Sterman, Acupuncturist, Writer, and Teacher. June 17th 2017

Figuring out what to eat can be like stepping into a maze of contradictory advice.  So many do’s and don’ts, never eat this, or you must eat that.  Chinese Medicine has taught about diet for thousands of years, never advocating a best diet.  Rather, foods are explained for their properties and  recommendations tailored to each individual, shifting with the seasons, for how we grow through life, for our personal health needs and for our individual life goals.  

In this workshop we introduce the energetics of familiar, everyday foods and how to put them together for healthy and delicious eating.  Questions will be answered and some diagnostic tools offered that you can use right away to attune to personal and family health.   Open to all, no cooking background or previous interest in Chinese Medicine needed.  Food for thought!

Andrew Sterman practices Medical Qigong and specializes in traditional Chinese Dietary Therapy and Herbs. He is currently writing a book on Food Energetics, presenting a broad range of information on hundreds of common foods. Each is described for its energetic properties according to the dietary branch of classic Chinese Medicine – an ever-evolving scholarly tradition started over two thousand years ago. Andrew Sterman also practices Qigong, meditation, and travels around the world as a musician.

Ann Cecil-Sterman is an acupuncturist, teacher, writer, artist, and musician. She is the author of the widely acclaimed, best-selling book, Advanced Acupuncture: A Clinical Manual, a required text in many acupuncture schools in the United States and more recently, The Art of Pulse Diagnosis. Ann’s practice features the complement channels of acupuncture and is augmented with Classical Chinese dietary therapeutic guidance. She also plays flute in the Philip Glass Ensemble.
