Extraordinary Chinese Medicine:
The Extraordinary Vessels, Extraordinary Organs, and the Art of Being Human
Exploring the relationship between the eight extraordinary vessels, and the zangfu and extraordinary organs, this ground-breaking book provides a new way of looking at the deep connection between the flow of qi through the primary channels, the placement of the confluent points of the extraordinary vessels along the primary channel system, and Daoist conceptions of the evolution of consciousness.
The author points to direct relationships between the primary channels, the extraordinary channels, and the zangfu and extraordinary organs which demonstrate a deep, underlying, and continuous connection between the individual and their environment, a continuous connection to Heaven above and Earth below, and, perhaps most importantly, an underlying drive of the channel systems to continually, experientially bring us back to the transcendent unity that we are always a part of, the natural state.
This book will enlarge the perspective of Chinese medicine practitioners, and martial artists, and prompt new approaches to treatment.

Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis
By William Morris
With Thomas Richardson
Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis is the result of 30 years discovery into family lineage and contemporary applications of classical literature. It is not designed to be a translational piece, but rather a reflection on practice and knowledge in the clinic.
This book addresses the assessment of the entirety of channel systems using pulse diagnosis. The methods addressed are based on the author’s interpretation of the Yellow Emperor’s Classic, The Pulse Classic, and the Difficult Classic. This view is contrasted with the organ centric view of the Ding family tradition as taught by Drs Shen and Hammer.
In addition to the problems of practice, this book addresses the matter of building knowledge in the clinic, a discipline called clinical epistemology.
