The praxis of community acupuncture is multi-faceted, subtle, and very demanding. It draws on all your personal resources: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. this book represents an effort to layout at least some of the facets of punking in the hopes that clarifying the demands makes them a little easier to meet.

The objectives of this course are to understand:

 - How community acupuncture draws on your personal resources.

 - Effectively meeting the demands of punking

 - Understand the barriers people have to getting acupuncture.

What this book is what I would have liked to read when I was starting out (as a social entrepreneur) was a confession of an intimate, messy, evolving relationship with capitalism, from someone who started their own business not because they wanted to but because they had to. Someone who wasn’t an economist or a banker, someone unqualified to be an entrepreneur by anything but desperation. I would’ve liked to read something ragged and personal by somebody who had no idea what they were doing but was driven to do it anyway.

The objectives of this course are to understand:

  • The various aspects which contribute to entrepreneurship.

  • The history of community-style acupuncture in the united states.

  • The history of people's organization of community acupuncture.
