Hi there. Welcome to my website. Here I share musings on medicine and healing, as well as updates on various projects I’m working on. A unifying thread in my explorations and in my work these days is the question:
How do we live a life of balance, beauty, peace, and deep meaning in the midst of today’s world?
This past year I focused on learning how to build sustainable, healthy, and beautiful living spaces, and I share that experience in my notebook. Not exactly medicine, maybe. But it’s becoming clearer to me these days that our health—the health of our bodies, our minds, our spirits—is inextricably related to everything else happening in the world, to the health of our planet, to the general state of mind of our culture, to the rapid changes occurring on many levels.
And with that, what draws my interest now is the potential stretching of the domain of medicine, the role of the healer, beyond the confines of the individual patient room. To where the art and practice of medicine are the art and practice of life itself—alleviating suffering, caring for every person with dignity, planting trees, making beautiful things, doing what you love, knowing who you are, standing for what matters to you, being the reality that you seek. Who is practicing? The doctor? The patient? Are we one and the same?
Announcing the rebirth of my acupuncture practice.
After a several year sabbatical of travel and study, I’m excited to get back to practicing the most beautiful system of medicine that ever found me: Classical Five Element Acupuncture. The past three years have been an amazing time of healing, adventure and deep learning for me. I bring into this next phase of work a renewed inspiration and dedication to being of service. If something here speaks to you, I welcome you to reach out to me by phone or via the contact page.
