Eastern Meditative Practices

This evening’s main topic will be presented by Gordon Smith, an Acupuncturist and much more.  Here’s a brief overview of his background.

Gordon is Board certified in Acupuncture (NCCAOM) and an Ohio State Medical Board licensed massage therapist. In 1998 he received post graduate certification in Acupuncture from the Acupuncture Society of America. In January of 1999 Gordon completed the advanced orthopedic medical massage, acupuncture and Pointing Therapy internship program in the Peoples Republic of China. He then remained in Southern China for 6 months to study Pointing Therapy under world famous Pointing Therapy expert Dr. Lin Chaoxiong at the Guangzhou Providence Hospital. Gordon completed his formal education in Acupuncture at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, Illinois.

He’ll be teaching us some basic Eastern meditation techniques and history.

Here’s his outline:
