It was with great pleasure and immense gratitude that I travelled over to the USA this last month to teach as pecks of the Neijing Acupuncture style to my fellow practitioners and students. My first stop was in Kansas City, where acupuncturist Dr. Chris Powell was my host. We had a great time eating magnificent food and doing a full day seminar on the very specialised Renying / Cunkou pulse diagnosis technique of the Neijing. I am looking forward to returning to Kansas City to teach advanced needling techniques and more in 2016.
Following this was my return, after 3 years, to Portland, Oregon. I consider Portland a second home and have many close friends, some family to me, who live and practice there. I presented a 2 day seminar on the core needling chapters of the Neijing to a great group of people - a group that was a mixture of students past, long time practitioners, scholars, and friends. We steadily went through the classical methods one by one and enjoyed some practical time as well. In 2016 I will be kicking off the Neijing clinical program there with the diagnostic weekends - where pulse, complexion, and palpation techniques are taught in depth. It was a very special time for me in Portland this year as I reconnected with my old Neijing ISSCA crew and also was able to stay with my classical brother Dr. Verluys in his amazing home with his incredible family.
Teaching has been a part of my Chinese medicine life as much as practice has. 2015 is 13th consecutive year of teaching undergraduate acupuncture and the 3rd year since the launch of the Institute of Neijing Research (INR). I look forward to many more years of teaching this incredible art, science, and medicine.
In Good Health...
