Participants and Dr. Yan will try to understand ancient oriental wisdom. Dr. Yan earned her PhD degree on Traditional Chinese Medicine from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, China's flagship institution for Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her main research fields are the philosophy of traditional Chinese Medicine, Taoism and Buddhism.
