Below I give my first entry for those who may be interested in starting to read my weekly entries:
"1. I find that I have written down many more of my thoughts on my five element practice that have not yet seen the light of day than I thought I had. My old Viennese astrologer friend, Dr Oskar Adler, whom I have mentioned before in my writings, always said that each of us has a duty to pass on whatever we have learnt to the outside world. "We never know who will read what we have written and who will learn from it," he would say. So in the belief that the more that is written about five element acupuncture the better, I will be using this new blog to pass on my thoughts to whoever wishes to read them. I intend to add a new post about once a week, and these individual entries taken together will form my eighth book.
I am drawing together some of the writings about my practice as five element acupuncturist which I feel will be helpful for any of my colleagues, particularly now those in China, who want to benefit from what I have gradually learnt over the years. I am especially keen to pass on the lessons from my own acupuncture master, JR Worsley, with whom I studied closely for several years as part of my postgraduate training. One of the many things I remember him telling us was that we would always learn more from what we didn’t get right to start with, especially our diagnosis of guardian element, than when we got things right. I know that the mistakes I made in my early practice have always proved to be valuable lessons for me, and I therefore hope that what I write here will give five element practitioners a little more confidence and enjoyment in their five element practice."
I will continue to add to my current blog when interesting thoughts strike me which may not fit the structure of this new book.
