About Jeffrey C. Yuen
Jeffrey C. Yuen is one of the most sought-after teachers of Chinese medicine throughout the world. He is an 88th generation Daoist priest from the Jade Purity School, Lao Tzu sect, and a 26th generation priest of the Complete Reality School, Dragon Gate sect. He apprenticed for more than 20 years in Classical Chinese Medicine and other Daoist healing arts with Master Yu Wen, who transmitted his lineage to Master Yuen before Master Yu Wen’s death at the age of 108. He also studied under the direct tutelage of Lu Xin-Zu, a Daoist priest of the Long Men tradition.
Master Yuen was a key figure in the development of the acupuncture program at the Swedish Institute in New York and the first Ph.D. program in the field of Classical Chinese Medicine at the American University of Complementary Medicine in Los Angeles. He is recognized internationally as a Master of acupuncture, Classical Chinese Medicine, Daoism, Chinese herbology, Tai Chi Chuan, and Qi Gong. He emphasizes the importance of Daoism in cultivating one’s life and spirit to prevent illness, and the use of Chinese medicine for understanding and treating illness.
Master Yuen conveys Chinese medicine from a deeply spiritual perspective rooted in Daoism. His ability to elucidate and bridge Western medical thought within the context of Chinese medicine offers an essential clarity to his students rarely experienced.
