In my blog, I will cover all the topics that get me jazzed about life, from nutrition to poetry, from meditation to rock climbing. I hope it will be a source of information, entertainment, and inspiration.

Embodying The 5 Elements
Transform Yourself and Your Practice

In these 5 workshops, we will use mindfulness, audio/visual presentations, guided meditations, experiential exercises, gentle yoga and group discussion to deepen our personal and clinical understanding of harmonious Qi flow. Through the lens of the 5 Element map of Chinese medicine, the functional expression of emotions, developmental psychology and psychospiritual issues will be explored. Personal transformation of body, mind, and spirit will be emphasized to actualize our personal and professional potential.

Workshop open to licensed acupuncturists, students of acupuncture, oriental medicine bodyworkers and energy healers. If you are not a healing professional but would like to attend, please contact Rupesh at (512)917-3404 or
