I feel great to be back in the community again. My heart is full, happy, and satisfied. Thank all of you for your offerings. I so appreciate each of you, and I thank you again for offering valuable tools that I will immediately incorporate in my practice.

~ Lee Zeitlin, L.Ac.  

Every one of the presenters this year offered something that I have felt was specifically beneficial to me. The talks were all excellent and I feel I am going home with lots of useful information, knowledge, and wisdom, and I am re-inspired!

~ Jeanne Snyder, M.D.  

Warm, instructive and intimate. Great presenters, informative, really excellent. Our Elders have really come into their own and hold the tradition in such a way that it is living and growing, yet true to the tradition and principles. Bravo!

~ Pat Gorman, L.Ac.  

I really enjoyed every aspect of it. The sense of community, the generous sense of approachability amongst the attendees, and each teaching was a nugget worth keeping.

~ Kathleen Robinson, L.Ac.  

Great lineup of speakers and presentations. I love how the mixture of practitioners’ experience and presentations provided “Aha!” moments of understanding.

~ Jeff Armstrong, L.Ac.  

The Symposium is excellent because it is so balanced. Attendees range from students to practitioners with 30+ years. Information ranges from the Chinese Classics to the latest in Western medicine. Though it has a core and foundation in the Five Element tradition, no one feels restrained in any thought, comment, teaching, or modality. All are welcomed without constraint.

~ Steve "Tuna" Flores, L.Ac.  

This was a first class symposium (the best in 32 years of attending acupuncture symposiums). All instructors came well prepared and imparted their knowledge and wisdom generously.

~ Andre Mottershead, L.Ac.  

Wonderful transmission of presence and spirit!

~ Thomas Malone, L.Ac.  

I loved it! It was a great way to re-invigorate my practice. Every time I come, it gets better.

~ Leonard Kalina, L.Ac.
