San Fu Days

Hello everyone, I want to extend an invitation to a research project and treatment that I have put together at CSTCM. Working with the  Clinic Director we are offering for the SAN FU Days this summer 2018, herb treatments that are placed
on the back shu points for the lung to treat winter lung afflictions. Its the magic of our medicine that uses the maximum Yang energy of the summer to absorb the healing herbs through the skin, and store in the body to boost the immunity
for winter to come.  Many Asian hospitals have lines of people out the door for these treatments and it is my hope that I can help step research in the TCM profession to begin to bring this into our modern world clinics and hospitals
in the Americas.

The treatments are being offered to friends and family of CSTCM students and faculty as well as the massage school in the building.

CSTCM Located at the corner of York and Colfax, Denver.

Sign up sheets are on the director’s door at the school, and they are slotted between noon and 3pm on the scheduled days, every 15 minutes. It will require one hour and 15 minutes of your time. 15 minutes for the application and questionnaire and one hour of retention and then we take the patches off and you go home.

Many thanks everyone,
Thanks for being on this adventure with me

New Discoveries on Easter Island

Candace Gossen, Ph.D., is an environmental archaeologist, architect, plant medicine teacher and is in the valley willing to share her research on new discoveries taking place on Easter Island. As she states, this is not a story of collapse but rather one of a strong resilient place called the Navel of the World. Her presentation and a short film on the subject will be shown at the Ashland Branch Library on Thursday, August 4 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., 410 Siskiyou Boulevard.

What happened to the trees on Rapa Nui (Easter Island)? Popular theory says these ancient humans cut down their forests, causing ecocide and collapse and leaving a barren island with thousands of stone Moai lying facedown in testament. Newly uncovered evidence is changing the old story into a new one based on survivability, sacredness, adaptation, and hope.

A French-Indian girl from the bayous of Louisiana who loves to dig in the dirt and climb trees, Dr. Candace Gossen has excavated, explored and taught on 6 continents including the last 13 years on Rapa Nui. She discovered an extreme climate event that caused the disappearance of the giant palm forests in 1456 A.D. Previous and simultaneously, she learned Archaeoastronomy, earth and solar architecture from the ancient builders of the Desert SW, raised her son, and was the Climbing Supervisor at REI. Moving to the PNW in 1996, her teachings continued in the form of design/build experiments in the middle of Portland and taught thousands of students to create sustainable solutions. Her other accomplishments include underwater and garbage archaeology, plant medicine woman, Mazama climber, wilderness first aid responder, artist, classically trained musician, Rock n’ Roll lighting designer, Yoga teacher and soccer player. She is also a lover of wolves and nature that finds passion in teaching.
