“I have been studying all my life, and besides my main degrees, I have taken many courses in a variety of subjects. In all these years of training, I have had many teachers, but I never met a teacher like Vita Revelli. I have only been in this course for a month, and the whole experience feels like the rebirth of me. Vita has the true gift of being able to transmit invaluable information that makes the whole learning process beautiful and almost majestic. I have just finished studying the first 20 lessons in the whole course (Module 1 - Year 1), a beautiful chapter that shows the fundamental conception of the world and the place of the human being occupies in it according to ancient Chinese phylosophy and cosmology. From these lessons, I have learnt to perceive the 'resonance' between the cosmos and the single human being, and have been able to gain a special gaze, a new to me vantage point, that invites me to look for 'Oneness' , rather than division, as this is the true basis of any life and all lives together. I am beginning to see how ultimately health has to do precisely with living this 'Onesess' and with how ultimately even movement and change don't do anything else but reaffirming it" ”
“This course is great, filled with important information which is difficult to come by and structured in a way which is easy to follow. Vita is a great teacher, with a wealth of knowledge. I have always found online learning difficult as, if there is no structure it is hard to keep motivation up. However, the structure of this course makes sure that you are constantly engaged. For anyone that wants an in depth knowledge of Chinese Medicine from start to finish, I highly recommend this course.”
