Our Invitation
We invite you to join us in a magical journey

from...
the mysteries of Daoism rooted in deep philosophical understanding of Nature and human beings as manifestations of the Divine

to...
the practice of Acupuncture and Moxibustion in the 21st Century, where the magic seems to be more hidden, but is just as alive for those who would see, hear, feel and inquire from the depths of their being.
