"few people can transmit complex concepts in such a direct manner".
Andrew Ellis, Herbalist & Author
I have known Dan Nevel longer than either of us wants to think about. When I was asked for a testimonial for his teaching I had second thoughts brought on by consideration of the wisdom best expressed by the poet, Piet Hein; “Shun advice at any price – that’s what I call good advice.”
Ignoring this tenet, I will say this: “Every time I have had a conversation regarding Chinese medicine with Dan Nevel, I have learned something and left with a perspective I did not previously have. Dan is an excellent teacher, there are few people who can transmit complex concepts in such a direct manner. If you have an opportunity to study with Dan, you should do it.
"Dan Nevel is one of our profession’s most talented and innovative acupuncturists "
Efrem Korngold, OMD, LAc
Dan Nevel is one of our profession’s most talented and innovative acupuncturists as well as being a wonderfully inspiring teacher. Dan’s Extraordinary Vessel model makes the use of this somewhat mysterious modality not only comprehensible, but an accessible and clinically effective diagnostic and therapeutic tool. Dan’s seminar exceeded my expectations: his presentation was coherent, profound, and practical, enabling me to implement his Eight Extraordinary Vessel protocols with patients the very next day.
"Dan returned me to me and in the process, inspired and elevated my greatest wish to be a healer"
Pamela Dickson, MD
Dan Nevel has been my teacher, healer, friend for so long that it’s hard to remember the time called “pre-Dan”. Yet meeting Dan was the beginning of my transformation. Dan returned me to me and in the process, inspired and elevated my greatest wish to be a
healer. This inspiration came from helping me to return to ground, the oneness of the Tao, the merging of heaven and earth. I was gifted to be part of Dan’s earliest year-long
teachings on NSEV, a journey into the magical and wondrous extraordinary vessels, a heart-felt dive into our deepest longings and beingness. Dan has continued to teach since that earliest workshop, sharing his personal explorations into the vessels. I have felt shifted by each workshop, descending, ascending and merging each time into the wonder of the vessels. Dan is one of us, remaining grounded as he gently guides us along the path he has carved as trailblazer.
"I highly recommend taking this course. Taking it from Dan – is a treat beyond your imagination."
Dr. Shweta S. Oza, Transformation Mentor
My first introduction to the Vessels was an embodied experience in Dan’s tending. I had no clue what they were or that they were THE Vessels. However, the more I got to experience them, and have a felt sense of them in my body; I got a calling to know them. That led me to Entering the Vessels course. Dan’s introduction of the Vessels was beautiful – practical, clinical (he is a practicing Acupunturist) and etheric. This journey of entering the vessels with Dan opened up a whole different way of looking, living and applying myself to my work. If you are looking for a practical, self illuminating, and yet energy contained way to understand YOU and the workings around you, I highly recommend taking this course. Taking it from Dan – is a treat beyond your imagination.
"Dan's clear and clinically useful teachings on the extraordinary meridians brought them to life"
Holly Thompson, AP, DOM
The NSEV training I took with Dan was a life and practice changing experience. Dan's clear and clinically useful teachings on the extraordinary meridians brought them to life and helped me to understand them on a much deeper level. I have been using NSEV since taking the course and have been getting remarkable results!
"Unique and practical perspective on healing the mind, body, and spirit"
Ellen Gray, Author
I have been taking classes taught by Dan Nevel for the past 30 years. I am not an acupuncturist or a healthcare provider, but as a longtime patient and curious learner, I have always been interested in knowing more about how NSEV treatments work, and to understand the holistic nature of healing that this modality has provided for me. I have been a student in several iterations of Dan’s Entering the Vessels courses and have very much appreciated how Dan presents his unique and practical perspective on healing the mind, body, and spirit.
"Learning NSEV Healing has had a profound impact on myself as an individual and as a practitioner"
Ashlee Binns, AP, DOM
Dan is a fantastic teacher. He has a unique ability to immerse you into the teachings of NSEV healing so that you not only learn the practical applications for patient treatment, you also get a true sense of how each extraordinary vessel disharmony looks and feels. Learning NSEV Healing has had a profound impact on myself as an individual and as a practitioner. It has heightened my awareness and enabled me to have a clear, visceral understanding of the etiology and disease processes of patients' disharmonies that I encounter in my practice. The NSEV system has elevated my ability to understand and connect with my patients and provide them with the transformational healing they seek.
"I was able to treat more deep emotional issues along with physical complaints to the great satisfaction of my patients. I can never thank Dan enough for this powerful and rewarding course"
Annie Sturman, AP
When I was an acupuncture student in the late 90's, we were briefly exposed to the Extraordinary Vessels. I realized how potent they could be and that you could accomplish so much more with fewer needles. For years I searched for a comprehensive EV course and never found what I felt I was looking for. I knew a few practitioners who had taken Dan's intensive course many years ago and asked them to let me know if he ever offered it again. I never realized the magnitude of what EV could treat. His course focused on non-somatic/emotional issues along with their somatic/physical representations. After 5 intense, long, enjoyable days of interactive study, I went back to my clinic feeling like I found the tool I was always looking for to treat patients.
