Du24 Shen Ting – courtyard of the spirit
Location: 0.5 cun within anterior hairline (or where hairline should be).
The characters of this point symbolise a place outside the inner most chambers of the emperor (spirit). This innermost place receives illumination from spirit, a place of observation and reflection.
This point provides access to a quiet and protected place within where we can gain insight, observe and reflect on our life and the messages received through our senses.
Imagine: sitting in a giant library, quiet and still. All around you are books on any topic to do with your life. All the chapters of your life are here. If you think of a question you may find a book that provides insight into that question.
