[v. 03-30-2019, Please remember that I'm politically independent in the United States of America regarding our current Commander in Chief.]
Wisdom Day 2019 is being moved forward for a week after the Psychotherapy Networker. Symposium 2019. I had planned it for Monday March 25, 2019, the day after the close of the Thursday-Sunday Psychotherapy Networker Symposium 2019. [CLICK Here to visit their site.]
I have moved the date back so that we can "digest" and metabolize the rich selection of CE events at the Symposium. The backbone of the Wisdom Day event last year and this year too is the importance for respect of others. Last year prior to my injury and surgery I'd actually prepared to have no male speak in person and trust only women to teach directly. [Ref: see Reverse Speech to learn about "intuition" and cloaked intentions.] Now after the #MeToo movement that need has been permanently brought to the forefront of social politeness.
The main presenter at the banquet will be a leader who appreciates the service and sacrifices of uniformed veterans.. Check back after the exact commitment has been made. I have invited General Colin Powell (US Army, retired) former Secretary of State. He may speak on the value of surrounding yourself with as many Friends as possible. I call this "Context for Success."
The evening Banquet will focus on youth, college students and early career health care professionals who want training for healthy careers and are curious about the science behind Acupuncture, acupressure and related treatments that originated in China, Japan and Korea.
Below is the video of my happy invitation to Wisdom Day 2015. The "cover picture" of the video was chosen by the YouTube editing algorithm. In that video I also have a picture of my similar work with a man receiving Cranio-Sacral Therapy.]
The theme of Wisdom Day 2019 will be the power of acupuncture and acupressure, as well as the health benefits of food and herbs as described by acupuncture specialists who were the top of their field over the past eras of health care history.
What I had planned for the venue of the Kaiser Center for Total Health allows me to schedule two kinds of events during the daytime.
[Now cancelled] 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.
A) First, field trips for school children and any adults curious about what Kaiser Permanente can offer to them and their families, during the day between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Their visit to the Center for Total Health will be accommodated by the Kaiser Center staff. The site is 700 Second Street NW, near Union Station. The outer rooms of the Kaiser Center can be visited on a Drop-In basis welcoming school children (and adults) while the modular classroom with demonstration satellite Medical Exam module will hold those who want to see what acupuncture Continuing Education is like. (Attendance is first-come-first-served after the paid attendees are seated; drop-in attendance is okay.)
B) Continuing Education. For prospective students as well as licensed professionals we are offering Continuing Education (3 hours of CE) from 2 to 5 P.M. This focuses on Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture Research, and the Digital Meridian Imaging technology called AcuGraph information about needle-free AcuMeridian therapies such as acupressure, a review of "Battlefield Acupuncture" and information on the AcuGraph digital meridian imaging.
5:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M,. food and Awards Banquet. Sign-up is encouraged for planning purposes so the caterer can accommodate those who attend.. There will be a Hawaiian Luau theme with the same Hawaiian Dancers as were there from 12:30 to 2:30.
Below are videos about my integrative medicine approach to mental health treatments using acupuncture and laboratory testing. You will also see the office introduction of Robert Hedaya, M.D., developer of Whole Psychiatry.
Here are two videos that I created a few years ago prior to my refreshing my body/mind approach to whole-person health. Below that I have embedded Dr. Hedaya's introduction to his practice, Whole Psychiatry.
[Earlier text about practitioners I was considering:]\
Come back later to see the schedule of events during the daytime. We will be reviewing the unique practice of "cupping" to enhance the flow of Chi and remove stagnation in the skin.
You can read about the national schedule for classes in Battlefield Acupuncture taught by acupuncturist John Howard. Some of his classes have been taught in the past for CE credits. Here is how he describes those who might benefit from attending his teaching:
"Any medical professional with acupuncture or auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture) in their scope of practice should attend this seminar. Our seminars are also open to the general public; those who would like to know more about acupuncture and auriculotherapy. If you are thinking about attending acupuncture school or want to know if acupuncture is a good fit for you, then this seminar is for you.
"In 1997 I attended a 5 month course in acupuncture at NIH (National Institute of Health) in Bethesda, Maryland before I enrolled into a full 4 year acupuncture program."
