One last thought for 2015

by Rachel Hartstein, L.Ac., B.Sc.

"The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry."

That pretty much sums up our absence from your inbox. (And this blog.)

We could say we've been so very busy: with life, with family, with the clinic, with YOU … and that would be true.

But we had wanted so badly to stay in contact and we have so many things we want to share!

So - we could just feel really down about that. Honestly, we'd be lying if we said we hadn't felt icky about promising to write regularly, and then NOT doing that.

But a core value of our holistic practice - the very thing we believe to be at the root of health - is the ability to acknowledge, accept, even welcome, that which IS.

Whether it brings discomfort or joy, pain or contentment, only after we fully embrace the present do we free up the energy to move toward a different and better future.

When we as practitioners meet and talk with any client, or when we work with our needles or our hands, our goal is to make space for the whole of each person: their pain, their struggle, AND the potential for them to grow and change and heal.

As we enter this New Year 2016, we'd like to offer the intention for all of us to be more fully present to what IS; to accept and even embrace our faults, pain, and dis-ease ...

… AND to keep moving forward with the unwavering certainty that we can transform and transcend any and all obstacles to our health and happiness, no matter if - or even how many times - we might stumble.

We also want to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for allowing us to walk with you on your journey to health, and to be a witness to your life. It is a profound honor and responsibility that we do not take lightly. We know how blessed we are to have your trust and your confidence and your support.

With gratitude and love, we wish you a
Healthy and Happy New Year!
