Professor Tae-Hunn Lee graduated from ICOM in 2003 and have been in private, full-time practice since then. His interests lie in the practical application of the Philosophy of Stems & Branches.
The Philosophy of Stems and Branches describes the process of revelation of Cosmic Energy and how each one of us is created as a unique Individual, each with his or her own unique strength and weaknesses and imbalances.
The 10 Stems describe the development and manifestation of our inner world as Organs but also as consciousness. The 12 Branches describe the development of the part of our being that makes contact with the outer world, which is often described as the Meridian System with a connection to our thoughts and emotions.
The Stems and Branches of our Date of Birth give each Individual unique ways of reaching out to life, but also of making contact with our true, authentic self. Consciousness acts as a bridge between our inner world and the outer world and we should respond to life’s stimuli and challenges in accord with our Shen. When our response to life is not guided by our Shen, thoughts and emotions are not an expression of our heart but are shaped and guided by outside influences, eventually leading to further imbalances and alienation from our true nature. In Stems and Branches Philosophy, this is seen as a cause of illness.
