Yanan Kim, Founder of Project Dao, attendee of the 2022 Divergent Seminar, Australia

“This workshop was nothing short of enchantment.. Ann’s teachings were humble and enlightening at the same time. I cried twice with joy of meeting this powerful medicine that I practice and I feel blessed to be doing what I do. I would recommend Ann’s teachings to anyone who seeks to be inspired to do deeper healing for their own patients as well as themselves as practitioners.”

Ann Cecil-Sterman was the first person in history to publish step-by-step protocols on the use of the complement channels of acupuncture as practices in alignment with the classical texts (the Sinews, Luo, Divergents and Eight Extraordinary channels).

She closely followed her teacher Jeffrey Yuen, the 88th generation Daoist Master of the Yu Qing Huang Lao Pai lineage, for 22 years in order to collate this information and pioneer a revolution in how Acupuncture is practiced in the modern world.

Ann's teachings are rooted in the classics, and often leave her students feeling deeply connected to the authenticity of the medicine, and capable of achieving profound results for their patients.

Ann is the author of three critically acclaimed Acupuncture textbooks, including Advanced Acupuncture: A clinic manual, The Art of Pulse Diagnosis, and Tongue Diagnosis: Visible Responses to Pathology


The event will be professionally recorded and made available for 3 weeks to those that purchase a ‘Recording Access’ ticket.
