Garden Management Journal Oct. 29, 2013: I wrote this the early morning of the last day of the Pacific Symposium, October 27, 2013. I had in mind to show it to Jack Miller before the first session and see if i had time to present it. Jack came into the room a few minutes before 9 am. I had no time to coordinate. He saw me, and said, “if i wanted to read the poem, now was the time.” I was grateful to have that healing moment on stage. I simply said one sentence and then read the poem. It was well received.~Leslie from My Healing Journey at the Pacific Symposium.

Ted Kaptchuk, years ago, was offered a job at Harvard University Medical School in their pursuit to come to terms, ultimately,  perhaps, with The Web That has No Weaver. Ted Kaptchuk was our gift as a movement to the Biomedical Model, yet it is for us in TCM to remember that we are a Nature Driven movement sponsored and loved by a Nature’s Original Technology that has grown here on earth and will continue to grow here.  Nature and her plants are calling us home as much as Ted said he came home last night when he spoke to us.

Nature is calling us all home now.  She wants us.  She wants us to Know how to grow our own food and our own medicines.  She wants us to cultivate Grassroots movement through being one with the earth.

Qi:  It is not for us to define it, it is for us to direct it and be the director of it because the Earth and the Soul are Soilmates.

I spoke to Steve Rosenblatt, the man who helped bring us here today when he sat in a meeting at the Hotel Del Coranado Hotel more than 25 years ago with some of the very souls sitting in this room today.

Why did you get into acupuncture I asked?  He said, he did it because I wanted to transform Mainstream Conventional Medicine.  Let us replant that seed today with Ancient Wheat and through being the ancient and future grains of wheat that nature intended.  We are here to help mainstream medicine get out of its boxes through making sure we are in our own lives Cultivating  Grassroots movement.

The transformation of medicine…How long will it take?  How Fast Can a Dream Grow? ~ As Fast as a Blade of Grass.

–Leslie Goldman, Your Enchanted Gardener
