I spent the last week in Santa Cruz del Quiché with an amazing team of acupuncturists, body workers, and humanitarians. This volunteer team includingMarc Lingat, Joelle Ludwig, Joan Boccino, Teodora Karaivanova, Julie Ing Stern, Norva Bennett, Peter Panken, Yefim G., Terese Wunderlich, Chelsea Horenstein, Stephanie Yee Loong, Diane JapanRising Dreyfus, Diane Chiang, Luciano Laynez and our great team of translators treated over 1000 Indigenous people of Guatemala. We also trained 75 local healthcare practitioners in auricular acupuncture to treat stress and other ailments. The experience goes well beyond words! An amazing experience that has touched the lives of so many of us, we are truly blessed in life.
