Speaking of Group Qi…

Has anybody else seen this video?

Be sure to click “watch in high quality” right underneath the video.

My favorite comment on YouTube about it: “This is just so ridiculous — so why am I crying?” 


I think I might have to use it, plus Justine’s post, to explain why I love community acupuncture. Or I might just keep watching it over and over.

  7. it is so amazing to hear

    it is so amazing to hear other folks say they cried when they watched the video. Sometimes I think I am soooo weird for reacting in these ways and then I read what my community feels and I feel connected.

     Thanks Lisa for all you have done and continue to do to help create this amazing community of acupuncturists.
