With so many changes happening for so many, I don't want to keep you long. So here's the deal:
Spring is springing and there's lots going on, from the joyous to the heartbreaking, and everything in between.
First off, my office is still open for healing sessions (this includes acupuncture, herbs, meditation, qigong, or having tea if you want to stop by and chat). I am fully vaccinated as of mid-March. Thank you, science!
Secondly, I've been reeling with the devastating, constant reports of anti-Asian hate and violence happening all over. In addition to allowing time for grief to come up, I've been wondering what I can do to help. Right now I'm working on a project in its very early stages, so I'll be sharing more on that very soon! In the meantime, I've been volunteering at Compassion In Oakland, and donating to Save Our Chinatowns. If you know of any other organizations working to help AAPI communities, I'd love to know about them. Please consider helping out if you are able, in whatever way you're able.
While I don't have a huge social media presence, I feel it's my responsibility, especially as a white man who directly benefits from Asian culture and medicine, to use whatever platform I have to stand with our AAPI siblings in this time of great need.
Let's take good care of ourselves, and of each other,
EJ Fry, L.Ac.
