It has been four years now in CommuniChi’s current location on Mount Baker and 2017 was our best ever. I say “our” because to each one of you who came for acupuncture, I give thanks, not only for supporting my work, but for supporting your own path of healing. We are all connected. Supporting each other and giving ourselves self-care gives hope for the future of our shared world. Never before has this been more important.
I offer here two recent articles I authored which expand upon this hope. Because Communichi continues to be a thriving acupuncture clinic supported by all of you, I am able to offer a portion of my time every week giving back to the community.

Blessings of peace and health for all people and living beings, and the Earth in the new year.
