To be a good acupuncture practitioner, it’s important to recharge and balance your energy from time to time. Fortunately, our planet still has wild places where the energies are pure and undisturbed. I tried to capture that energy in this film that I made from a trip I made in Olympic National Park in late summer of 2020. The mountains, forest, rivers, wild creatures, vistas, and vast silence brings one into union with a deeper truth of existence beneath the busyness and speed of the average 21st century consciousness. This video chronicles a clockwise backpacking trip on the Skyline Trail, with my hiking partner Dave, beginning and ending at the North Fork of the Quinault River, from August 29 to Sept. 1, 2020. Music by Moby (Long Ambients 2). Enjoy!
