The Korean Way of Tea


About three years ago i was given a tea set from a church where i taught english in korea. the tea set resembled a traditional korean tea set but had modern print design. while in the states, i began developing a liking to drinking green tea and stumbled across a book "The Korean Way of Tea" by Brother Anthony of Taize and Hong Kyeong-Hee. Finally, this last august, i was able to meet with Brother Anthony in korea to enjoy a cup of green tea in his office. he kindly informed me of where to buy a good traditional tea set along with where to find some good green tea. since purchasing my tea set in korea, my interest and enjoyment of drinking korean green tea has blossomed. The book may be purchased at seoulselection.com or other useful information can be seen on Brother Anthony's personal webpage.

Audio Dictations of Acupuncture Point Locations


Included are audio files with descriptions of acupuncture point locations. The text used for description was:
"Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion" by Cheng Xinnong Seventh Printing 2006.

I have also found it quite helpful to flip through Peter Deadman's, "A Manual of Acupuncture" Second Edition 2007. The illustrations from Deadman's book along with the audio provide a good visual-audio learning alternative.

My instructors tell me and other students to follow CAM's point descriptions since they are apparently what is used for the board exam (Lac.).
