Happy Goat Productions & Imperial Tutor

  • Do you feel like your clinical practice could use some inspiration, revitalization, growth and development, and fresh perspectives?
  • Do you yearn for a deeper, more direct, and more authentic connection to the cultural roots of the medicine you practice?
  • Do you want to rekindle your love to the ancient wisdom of the Dao, which drew you to this medicine in the first place?
  • Do you dream of empowering yourself to access the classics of your medicine as directly as possible, with minimal interference from other voices?
  • Do you feel a burning need to learn how to truly practice Chinese medicine and cultivate virtue in the tradition of Sun Simiao’s “great doctor,” so as to harmonize heaven and earth?
  • Or do you simply want to go back to the very basics and review the meaning of Yin and Yang?

It has been my honor and joy and passion for the past thirty plus years to share my love of traditional Chinese medicine with contemporary practitioners in the West. To fulfill this mission most effectively, I have developed three paths: book-length publications; my Imperial Tutor mentorship; and a variety of courses to teach you the art of reading the Chinese medicine classics.

About Sabine Wilms, PhD

My life’s work is rooted in my desire to share what I have learned from the ancient Chinese classics with dedicated practitioners and students of Chinese medicine. I have spent my entire adult life immersed in these teachings and have been profoundly affected by them. I am convinced that they offer powerful and elegant answers to many of the problems facing us today and can assist all of us in our healing work, as we strive to create harmony between Heaven and Earth.

The vision that I am manifesting here originated on a biodynamic orchard and goat farm two decade ago, where I learned about fertility, irrigating, and the importance of going beyond sustainability to restorative agriculture, by working my right brain and my left brain, my body, my heart, my spirit, and my soul to produce the best goat cheese west of the Mississippi, as my daughter proclaimed once.

Building on my previous language training in my native Germany in Latin, Greek, Japanese, English, and French, a PhD in East Asian Studies and Medical Anthropology from the University of Arizona in the US, and two years of studying modern and classical Chinese in Taiwan, I spent two years collaborating closely with Nigel Wiseman, as senior editor at Redwing Books and Paradigm Publications. This work initiated me into the art of producing top-quality translations of Chinese medical texts for a Western clinical audience in a professional context. I have been writing, teaching, translating, and publishing educational materials on authentic and truly “traditional” Chinese medicine ever since, from blogs to books, and from memberships to online courses and live events all over the world.

“I am passionate about empowering you to discover the roots of this ancient and precious medicine we practice. Let us join together to harmonize Heaven and Earth in the spirit of the ancient classics, one text, one body, one heart and spirit, one moment at a time…”
