The lark has boundless energy and symbolizes hope, happiness, and good fortune.
“Larks are known for their melodious singing. They also sing while they are flying, unlike most other birds, who only sing when perched. This indicates cheerfulness and reminds us to find joy in our own lives. Larks have a crescent shape across their breasts. The crescent shape often signifies lunar qualities, and the moon is often linked with the concept of self. Therefore the lark reflects the inward journey that’s often associated with self-discovery. This goes hand in hand with their singing, something that, for humans, is often considered a private activity and a deep reflection of inner self. Lark encourages us to explore our inner selves and sing out loud.” (www.pure-spirit.com)
To create a blog/website that attracts readers with a common interest in learning and sharing the many facets of the healing arts that improve physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual well-being.
I am halfway through a 4-year Masters program studying Classical Chinese Medicine at NCNM in Portland, Oregon. I am on an amazing journey discovering what it is I am truly meant to do in this world. Starting with a blog seems to be a realistic first step to take while I’m still full time in my studies. If I begin with reaching out to family and friends, I am confident this can network to friends of friends and beyond.
A majority of what I want to contribute to my readers will encompass (but not be limited to) the principles of Classical Chinese Medicine. This includes Acupuncture, Herbal therapy, and Qigong for all. However, what is most important to me is connecting with you, whether it involves a healing modality like Chinese Medicine or just talking about life in general. I want to start a dialogue to increase awareness about what is really going on within and around us. I want to open a supportive space to share questions, ideas, and recommendations. In time, this will become a community for learning and growth in the healing arts.
