We’re not the only ones heart-to-heart connecting through the internet.

Here’s a beautiful story from Eric Whitacre, describing a phenomenon I found both wonderful and familiar, because it has a similar story line for CAN and now POCA.  He says “Human beings will go to any lengths necessary to find and connect with each other.”  Makes me appreciate more than ever what the internet has done to make this possible, and what magnificent results we can expect to meet in the future.

 And yes, we DO make music together!

I earned a B.A. in Hotel/Restaurant Admin, but soon realized that I wanted to do something more meaningful.  Became interested in nutrition and education when pregnant with my first child. Interest in health led me to becoming a foot reflexologist, which led to a massage practice and suddenly discovering the love of my life: Chinese medicine! Practicing for 18 years, Hawaiian/Californian, acu-educated PCOM San Diego/OCOM Portland. Started my CAP in <a href="https://www.communityacu.com/" target="_blank">San Rafael</a>, Marin County, July 4, 2006, even while earning my doctorate at OCOM.  This didn't seem to make sense, but it was my way of comparing the old way of practicing acupuncture to a simpler, truer expression of what I had learned in school.  I love it. And I love being a part of this grand movement to change the world by being true to our conscience. Reopened all over again when I moved to a place where no one had ever heard of me. 3 months open so far, and just beginning to meet expenses. I have no doubt this will succeed and I will be hiring by next year.

  2. wow, what a beautiful image

    wow, what a beautiful image of being connected. Thanks for sharing this. I love the idea of syncing needling for May Day too that’s exactly what I was thinking in the second song with all the bubbles of people connected. One of my teachers would always say that needles are like little antenna pulling in qi, that would be a really cool visual video.
