This page, 'Jonathan Talks', tells you when, where and about what Jonathan is giving talks.
However, not all these talks are open to the public, but the description will tell you.
The speaker, Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott, trained in acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the 1970s and has run a busy clinic in Edinburgh ever since.
He has written 5 books on how Chinese medicine works in different situations, the most recent being on the nature of ‘phlegm’ and what to do about it.
He maintains a website explaining Chinese medicine in English, visited daily by many thousands of people worldwide: www.acupuncture-points.org.
Western Philosophy and Theologies have wrestled with the nature of Mind for over 2500 years and are still at it. But what we regard as Western civilisation covers less than half of mankind.
By well over 2500 years ago, another great civilisation had already been giving it a good deal of attention, probably for millennia. Several books written during the first millennia BC remain in daily use today because of their profundity and because of their suggestions on how to treat the sick.
Along with the medicines of many other oriental countries, Chinese medicine is still based on the Huangdi NeiJing. How it views the mind and how it treats mental disease still goes back to this and other early masterpieces.
Find out how Chinese medicine deals with the concept of Self and ideas of the spirit, soul and mind: then how it approaches our supposedly modern problems of, for example:
All of it in 50 minutes? Well, probably not, but there will be time for questions!
Who likes being ill?! And how do you know you're getting ill?
Though also very dependent on your constitution and other internal and external factors, there is a 'typical' way in which we get ill.
Once this is recognised, you can often see whether your illness is being successfully repulsed or whether your body is reluctantly being forced onto its back foot as the disease invades you further.
Jonathan talks about how you can also decide whether treatment is helping or not (whether from medication, or DIY self-dosing, or acupuncture, or herbs or ...)
So it pays to know how, typically, disease invades your body!
Maybe suffering and struggle produce spirituality, but for most of us it helps to start practising when we’re well.
Western medicine recognises diseases but Chinese medicine recognises many of the states we get into before we get ill, as defined by Western medicine. It identifies what predispose us to illness.
One of the greatest inspirations for Chinese medicine has been the concept of yin-yang, and the theory of change.
Jonathan talks about how this will help you reach your potential!

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)
('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.
Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
Six Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
