"I have researched the Chinese medicine classics and the Shang Han Lun for 30 years. Genevieve's 'deep in the classics' course stands unique at a very high level. I passionately recommend it to anyone in this field."
Dr. Yaron Seidman, Hunyuan,life Founder
"[Genevieve Le Goff] teaches in a tradition and a field where lectures are the primary teaching and learning method. It is no reflection on Dr. Le Goff’s brilliance in the transmission of this knowledge. I have studied with four teachers in this lineage. Genevieve LeGoff is the most accessible, personable, and clear teacher of these methods that I have encountered. I used the title Dr. above because she is operating at a doctoral level in scholarship, applicability, and relevance."
Will Morris, PhD, DAOM, RH: AHG & CHA
"This is the best course I've ever taken. It has given me a clinically relevant understanding of Classical Chinese Medicine physiology and formula building. I have a greater confidence now in treating complex disorders and no longer feel the frustration I endured for almost two decades with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Geneviève has raised the bar in both the academic and clinical caliber I expect from any future courses I may consider. Her attention to detail, thoughtfulness in presentation and practical guidance as a master herbalist are beyond what words can express."
Jeffrey Schifanelli, L.Ac.
"Good Morning Genevieve: I want to tell you how much I have been enjoying your course, both your charming personality, your clarity and brilliance, and your wonderful organized presentations (use that in a testimonial!) I have really appreciated another take on this material and will miss our Saturdays as we wind down now, but just in time as I wind back up my teaching schedule!
Best to you and thank you again for everything,"
Dr. Caroline Radice, L.Ac.
"Genevieve was first a student who took my class many years ago. I have always admired and respected her studious demeanor and now she has become my teacher. She is a perfect example of a student becoming better than a teacher. Her Circle of Life program was hands down the best class I have taken on obstetrics to deeply understand the classical approach to creation and continuation of life, and her clinical knowledge and application of Chinese herbs are phenomenal. She is a very clear, generous, and precise teacher. I look forward to learning more from Genevieve." [Genevieve's note: this is surely vastly exaggerated, and shows what a humble, wise and generous teacher Kumiko is herself! I am looking forward to learning more from *her*!]
Dr. Kumiko Shirai, L.Ac.
"I’ve been in practice for 21 years and taken many classes over these two decades. The Circle of Life is one of the absolute best I’ve ever taken, in terms of the content, context provided to understand the material, the exceptional powerpoint and handouts, and the clinical guidance. Genevieve offered us several different options for submitting questions, discussing possible answers, and assisting us with clinical treatment decisions. I recommend this class to any practitioner who has a sincere interest in Obstetrics and herbal medicine."
Njemile Carol Jones, L.Ac. FABORM
"I have always wanted to study the SHL more in-depth but it just seemed too daunting. And then this course came along and I just knew it was what had been missing in my education. Genevieve is an excellent instructor and presents the material in such a way that doesn't feel overwhelming. It has truly deepened my appreciation of the wonders of classical Chinese medicine. Best of all, I have been able to immediately apply what I've learned into practice. Take this class, you won't regret it!"
Teresa Lau, R.TCMP, R.Ac., L.Ac.
I highly recommend Genevieve's classes. She is a polymath whose broad range of studies give her the ability to understand the classical texts as they apply to many familiar aspects of the world around us, not just herbalism. She is also a scholar who has spent time considering the world in which the SHL was written, including its astronomy, and will remind you of the prehistory to these ancient texts, as well as help you to imagine the world in which they were created. The synthesis of her studies has a strong focus on the circulation of fire and water. She is both able to explain the large scale movements of fire and water as well as all the myriad permeations of this relationship that show up in clinical practice. She teaches from the source text, interspersing the lines with illustrative case studies from her own practice. She clarifies the trickier lines from the SHL by putting them into the context of the six conformations, in other words, as part of the description of how yang moves through the body and what happens when this movement is thwarted. She is gracious, and generously treats even us newly-minted practitioners as valued colleagues (which of course, we are :) )
You will leave her class with a clear understanding of how to use aconite safely and appropriately, and with a working familiarity with the Shang Han Lun for your own continued studies. Through the case studies on the class forum, you will have many chances to see how to apply the Shang Han Lun in real life, improving outcomes for your own patients.
Ann Cleary, LAc.
"I have eagerly devoured each set of notes and recordings as they arrived and I want to thank you very much for the comprehensive nature of the content. As I said before it has helped me consolidate a lot of information, filled in some gaping holes for me and of course introduced me to much new material. I feel confident to head into treatments with a better grasp now. Of course I also understand this is a lifetime's work of continuing study.I would be keen to follow any other courses you run."
Rhonwen Warland, Acupuncturist, Chinese Herbalist AHPRA/CMBA (Australia)
"Thanks, Genevieve ~
I am loving your class. As you likely know, I have studied this material with some other teachers.
Just as I suspected, your approach is authentic, amiable, and accessible."
Will Morris, PhD, DAOM, RH: AHG & CHA
"You are a phenomenal teacher and I feel so lucky to have you in my reaches to learn from!"
Erica Bowman, L.Ac.
"In case of chronic hunger for understanding how classical formulas work, daily thirst for a nature based circular view of conformations, bloated indigestion of material taught in TCM schools, Genevieve governs. Consumed over a long period of time, prolongs life of those around and self, calms the Heart, gives a French accent. Warm and non toxic."
Adrien Losay (France)
"Although I have been practicing, researching, and teaching Chinese Medicine for 40 years, I still see myself as a curious student. Studying with Genevieve Le Goff has been highly rewarding, a true privilege and a great source of inspiration and deep learning. I highly recommend this course not only to those who desire to delve deeper into the classical architecture of a herbal formula, but also to all those who feel called to work with pregnant women and assist the miracle of life."
Vita Revelli, CM lecturer, researcher and student (Greece)
"Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us!"
"This was the BEST class I've been to yet on pregnancy and Chinese Medicine! Genevieve, you have so much valuable knowledge and experience with treating pregnant mamas and it was really a treat to learn from you! Thank you!"
"Thank you so much for offering the class, it was the best class I've ever taken on Chinese Medicine related to women's health! I really valued how much knowledge and also personal experience you shared. I treat a lot of pregnant mamas in my clinic, and I feel a lot more confident now using herbs. I'd like to learn more about the fundamentals of Classical Chinese Medicine, even just the basics are unfamiliar and confusing to me. If you decide to offer a class on that in the future, I'd definitely be interested! Thanks again!"
"It was so great to meet you, I can’t wait to continue my studies of the classics, so I very much hope to hear about any more CEUs you’re offering in the future!! Thank you so much for an amazing class, I can’t wait to go through the rest of the cases and deepen my understanding of the circle!"
"I just want to deeply thank you for the class yesterday. I am so inspired by you and your practice. I learned so much and hope to keep taking classes with you in the future."
"I thoroughly enjoyed the class and look forward to learning the classics more!"
"Thanks again for wonderful materials and discussion! I have already put it to use :)"
