I have studied pulse with many teachers over these past decades. The information was daunting and unapproachable. When I sat at the knee of Matthew Wood the light dawned. Then William Morris giggled himself into my life. William’s book honoring his mentor Li Shi- Zhen’s Pulse Studies, an Illustrated guide I highly recommend. Next, find where he teaches and sit at his knee! Experiencing the pulse with the teacher present is invaluable. I am including notes from William Morris classes in italics. I asked herb sister Kay Parent to share her thoughts on knowing the pulse.
