The Practice of Practice
The medicine we practice doesn’t just help us to help others. It can help us to live more deeply into our own lives.

Many of us think that business is something we “have” to do. But really, it is something we “get” to do. It is a kind of privilege to create a life and practice that deeply reflects who we are. And it is an opportunity to work through...

I never planned to host a podcast show: one of many curiosities on the road of practicing Chinese medicine • Michael Max • Qi012
A friend who I wanted to interview for the show said, “Actually, I'd like to interview you. I've got some questions about the background of your podcast show, and what motivates and fuels you through the various projects I've seen you undertake over the years.”
In this episode we look at how a stable thriving practice comes not from doing the “business things” we dislike, but rather from the cultivation of value, integrity and responsibility.
