Welcome to the Community of Qiologicans
Walt Disney said “We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make movies.”
I suspect you have a similar feeling about your acupuncture practice. And there is a lot you do in service of extending your skills and understanding so you can better help others heal. I hope the work I do with Qiological helps you with deepening your craft.
If you are here, you’re probably already a regular listener to Qiological. And you might be thinking about supporting the show.
You can get all the details in the video above. But in case you are the kind of person that prefers text to audio. Here are the highlights.
Joining the Qiologican community supports the podcast by helping to cover the costs of equipment, software, internet hosting and services, production and some of my time that I’d otherwise be devoting to clinic.
It’s a way for you to say “thanks these podcast conversations bring value to my life and practice.”
Any business enterprise requires financial stability if there is going to be long-term sustainability. So I’ve opened up this opportunity for you, the listener, to help Qiological grow into a resource that will both support our profession with learning and inspiration, and help us to better help our patients.
As an additional thank you for your support, there will be some extra content that you’ll find only on the subscriber channel.
Subscribers will get access to:
- Early releases of some interviews that I just can’t wait for you to hear
- Mini-series that go deeper into particular areas of interest
- Guest interviewers
- “Part two” interviews with previous guests
- Panel discussions
- And finally…. You tell me, I’m open to seeing how this audio resource would like to evolve. You are part of that evolution.
I’ve heard it said that for something to be heard — it takes someone to speak and another to listen. Thank you for listening to Qiological, and if you would like to support the show so it has more resources to continue to expand and evolve, then please subscribe and become a member of the community.
Exclusive Podcasts for Qiologican Community
We venerate the masters, hold them up as shining examples of what we would like to be one some day, but let’s be honest here— most of us will never be masters. Those rarified characters are few and far between. And the process it takes is not one most of us would willing sign up for. We do however have a good shot at being a fine journeyman or journeywoman
In this conversation we have a couple of practitioners who have listened to Toby’s podcasts on Sa’am acupuncture and read his article from the Journal of Chinese Medicine ask questions based on their experience of using this perspective in their clinical work.
This not a discussion of theory, but rather clinical applications from practitioners who are engaging the method.
This is Qiological's first episode with a guest interviewer. Njemile Carol Jones pulls out her old radio day skills and sits down with Lorraine Wilcox for a conversation on what has caught her attention over the years, and the various projects in which she is currently involved.
Njemile and Lorraine knew each other from back in the day when they both worked at NPR. Since then they've both traveled their own paths into Chinese medicine.
You know how sometimes patients have these weird symptoms that they think have nothing to do with who they are?
Well, us acupuncturists are not immune to running up against our own uninhabited edges, especially when it comes to marketing and business.
In this episode we continue where we left off with our previous discussion and begin with how simply changing the amount of herbs in a formula can lead to some surprising outcomes.
The guest of this conversation was on Qiological at the beginning of 2018, she was just graduating from Chinese medicine school and thoroughly psyched about building a business.
Puzzling Through Saam Acupuncture – Questions, Clinic Cases, Organ Archetypes and Getting Out of Hot Water
This “part two” conversation with Toby Daly came about because I've been trying to learn the Saam system of acupuncture as he detailed it a recent Journal of Chinese Medicine article.
If the words fun, fascinating and laughter are not how you think of marketing, then you need to change your idea of marketing. And if you think brand means the logo for your business, then it's time to update your definition of brand.
If you think that the experience a computer guy around building his business has nothing to do with those of an acupuncturist's, think again.
I've had people comment that they've heard me in a number of interviews talk about Kong Zui, Lung 6. I've gotten emails about this, and had people ask in person “what's up with Lung 6?”
