So many things to recall

So many things to recall

We finally made it to a more reliable internet connection tonight.  Here we are in Matsuyama on Shikoku Island at the Matsuyama Shinsenen  Youth Hostel.

So happy to arrive at the Matsuyama Youth Hostel. The ‘weary’ travelers.

 

 

 

 

 

It was a Shinkansen (Bullet Train) travel day after we got an excellent lesson and lecture from one of our teachers that came to Miyawaki sensei’s clinic to share with us.

Kuzuno sensei offered us some excellent new insights on Eight Extraordinary Vessel and Shigo diagnosis and treatment.

A lot of new ideas are tumbling around in my head about how to work with this new information. Integrating it into my current treatment regime.  I think it will add another level of acuity to diagnosis and, even, to the effectiveness of all treatment.  I am quite inspired, once again.

Yesterday was a day of seminars.  We attended the Shonihari (Pediatric Acupuncture) Conference and Got to see Kuwahara sensei give 2 lectures and one ‘Premium’ demonstration session.  Suzuki sensei was also lecturing and did demonstration during the day.  It was a good study day with another round of eating and drinking at the end in the conference room to celebrate.

Then, just when you thought you couldn’t eat anymore – there was more food – after the reception, after the conference.
