This CPD comes in many guises,
Well I just thought I would tell you about an “aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahmazing (said with a Canadian accent & with lots of gesticulating & joy de vie) course. Essex Acupuncture Room was the venue where acupuncturists from around Essex, oh and one from Suffolk and another from Sussex gathered for a wonderful weekend of learning. Jani White left the mighty metropolis of London to come share her knowledge and experience from the world of acupuncture and fertility.
It is always a wonderful experience to connect with experienced practitioners and each and every one of these encounters helps inform and guide our practice in some way or other.
One point that was raised again and again was that the “Heart opens the Womb” (did I mention it was a fertility/gynaecological course). For me it was one of the most poignant phrases of the weekend. Translated into everyday speak we truly need to work in partnership with our patients/clients paying attention to what could be hindering a joyful Heart and then how to address this.
Alongside the joy of learning there were also lovely joyful moments away from “the classroom”
5yr old girlie had a 3D project of a person or animal to do for school. She’d already chosen to do a flamingo and we’d collected the necessary bits & bobs. Suddenly not naming any names Jani … ooops that slipped out, was elected as artistic director.
In the end 3 adults pleasantly whiled away the evening with wine, olives & houmous, working with pipecleaners, feather’s, pompom’s glue and sticky back tape. Tah dah, to the right is the gorgeous finished product. Hmmm too gorgeous for 5 year old to take to school, particularly as she didn’t participate in its making. So we are now back to the drawing board, I’m thinking a mouse might be quick, easy & doable.
So, now you lovely folk of Essex, are surrounded by more fertility support practitioners to travel alongside you on your journey. Those of us who did the course will become members of the Acupuncture Fertility Network meaning we have done extra studies on the subject and are constanting updating our knowledge base to ensure a high quality of care is delivered to you.
I can’t recommend the course enough, if you are a practitioner & have the chance, DO a course with Jani (AKA Missus Lively, they’ll not be quiet lectures that’s for sure)to find out more check this out.
