Dear Dr. Mao

Taking on the Dark Side of Autumn

Monday, October 7, 2019 | 5 - 6 pm PST

Facebook Live Event

Hello Autumn! There’s a chill in the air, the sky may be turning darker sooner, and you feel an eeriness that makes you want to cocoon under the covers, but that’s no reason to feel blue. It’s easy to forget that seasonal change can be a good thing. We understand that this time of year triggers lower energy levels and for some even sadness or depression. Let’s flip this around though. Now is also a period to nurture your life and create resilience, getting in touch with what really matters. It’s time to shine a light on the best tips to tackle symptoms and solutions for how you experience the dark side of Autumn. Altering your perspective, tweaking routines, and being open-minded can do wonders for ensuring that you have something to look forward to so that you can enjoy the moment.

5 Health Issues That Young Women Should Know

Thursday, October 10, 2019 | 5:15 - 6:15 pm PST

Facebook Live Event

Being a young women in your 20-30s often comes with a massive to-do list; filled with adventure and making the most of what life has to offer you. A jam-packed schedule, inconsistent eating habits and exercise, unsafe sex habits, technology overload and a lack of sleep can be glossed over and ignored when you are young. And most of today’s women don’t even realize that it isn’t normal to live in chaos. But, those who are older and wiser will remind you that healthy habits can’t be pushed aside for the future. Age isn’t the sole factor for good health, however, it certainly favors those who start implementing good habits early on in life. Our goal is to support your busy lives and keep you from jeopardizing your body. This month Dr. Dao will discuss the five health issues critical for young women to be aware of and vital for those who find themselves searching for the fountain of youthful well-being!

The Taoist Inner View of the Universe and the Immortal Realm

by Master Hua-Ching Ni

Chapter 13, Virtue - The Foundation Of All Self-Cultivation

Thursday, October 17, 2019 | 5:30 - 6:30 pm PST

Master Ni, Hua-Ching, the 37th-generation practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as Taoist Healing Arts, has written many well-known books on spirituality. Led by Dr. Dao, our monthly tele-study group is open to everyone. There is a wide range of experience in this group from newcomers to long-term participants. Together, we will explore Master Ni’s writings. Participants take turns to select a passage from his books so that as a group, we can delve into the meanings of his writings and how we can apply this knowledge into our daily lives.

This month’s selection comes from Marc Mason. He shares:

Here is one passage that I particularly like, “True virtue is not something one does deliberately. It is simply a spontaneous expression of one’s pure being.” I find this chapter inspiring and thought provoking, and look forward to our shared insights and questions.

If you do not own this book, then it may be purchased on the Wellness Living Store website at: www.taostar.com

If you have any questions, please contact Peter Stege at: pstege@hotmail.com

You are also encouraged to join the Wellness Living newsletter (taostar.com) and Infinichi Face-book page for further event updates.

The Healing Hour

Recognizing Gynecological Cancer - Risk Factors, Red Flags, And Support

Monday, October 21, 2019, 5 pm PST

with Dr. Mao and Frances Lam, L.Ac.

This month pink is the new black because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Let's continue to expand our awareness for a comprehensive look at women's cancer education. Did you know that there are also five gynecological cancers - uterine, ovarian, cervical, vaginal, and valvular? According to the American Cancer Society, there were an estimated 110,070 new cases diagnosed and approximately 32,120 deaths from gynecologic cancers in the U.S. in 2018. That's far too many mothers, wives, daughters, partners, and friends in our opinion.

Most women don't know the signs of gynecological cancer.  Sadly, there are also false assumptions about the links between sexual promiscuity and gynecological cancer. This, in turn, creates a stigma around the diseases that could be costing women's lives. It's time to have an open and honest chat about what will be life-saving for many women.

Dr. Mao and Frances Lam, L.Ac., will explain what the five cancers are, what risk factors you need to be aware, how to recognize red flags, and the supportive role that acupuncture can provide for women undergoing treatment. Cancer care is an evolving process. Every battle is different. But, there are some great insights that we can all learn from because it's never too late to take better care of ourselves.
