Shameless Nepotism Post

My brother in law, Keith Leon, has just written a book called “Who Do You Think You Are?”No, that’s not a challenge to your sense of self or family lineage; it’s a book about finding your life purpose.In the book, Keith interviewed 64 people regarding their life purpose, how they discovered it and what advice they would give to those who are still searching.He drew his interview subjects from many fields, but leans heavily on folks who are involved in the human potential and new thought movements. If you’re not sure who those folks are, they are a big part of the movie/book phenomenon “The Secret”.
So why is this showing up on the Community Acupuncture Blog? Two reasons.One, discovering Community Acupuncture has aligned my work with my life purpose in a way that is beyond what I had ever hoped for.This feeling, of being “on purpose”, has been a tremendous antidote to the feelings of “I can’t possibly be/do enough” and “the world is going to hell in a hand basket.” Oh, and the second reason?Our own Lisa Rohleder is one of those interviewed in the book!How great is that? The book is purchasable through your familiar on line book sales behemoth.I’ve got a copy for my waiting room, open, of course, to Lisa’s page.Wink

<p> I had just hit 10 years in practice when I stumbled on the Working Class Acupuncture model in 1995, via Lisa and Skip's "Little red book of working class acupuncture". After reading this 3 times in the first two weeks, I was ready to jump, and two months later I was offering Community Acupuncture part time in my <a target="_blank" href="">Cape Cod, Massachusetts clinic</a>. </p> <p> While my boutiqe style practice had always been enough to pay the bills, I was forever needing to recruit new clients, and the ones I had often ignored my recommendations for a treatment plan, mosty due to cost. This made me feel frustrated and not very effective. The opportunity to transform my practice in ways that better support me, my community, and my values has been life changing for me. While it's all still a work in progress, there's no question that this is what I want to be doing, and helping others to do as well. </p>

Conference Keynote: Breaking the Ceiling

The theme for this conference is “Breaking Barriers”. You know, there are so many barriers to break in acupuncture that it was really hard to choose which ones to talk about for this speech. But since I’ve spent so much time talking about classism as a barrier, I thought it might be fun to shift gears a little and talk about numbers.
