Four days ago I had the honor of being a guest lecturer at Marist College (in Poughkeepsie, NY) to talk about Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in particular. I began by asking the students what questions they had and they smartly dove into all directions from mechanisms to theory to my personal journey. One student asked who I typically work with and since the student did not ask a demographically-based question I gave a broad categorical answer: I see many seekers who have tried and often regularly use multiple medical modalities.
A unique possibility of Chinese Medicine is to help a person understand that they already have what they need: the unchanging truth of change and every asset of the natural world around you within you.
The medical modality and practitioner are your companions, tools, mirrors, instruments, to accessing what you need – what you already have.
