|David Crow - Healing & Environment|
David Crow earned his initial accreditation from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1984, and after several years of clinical herbology and acupuncture practice in the US journeyed to Nepal to study Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicine with traditional doctors in Kathmandu. His book In Search of the Medicine Buddha documents the story of these internships and his awakening to the environmental destruction imperiling the medicinal plants on which these ancient medical systems depend.
David is also an experienced teacher of Vipassana meditation , which he uses to awaken students to the essential biological unity of the body and the ecological surround. He will be helping USW develop Chautauqua-like performing arts & aromatic education tours, organic medicinal farming curricula, and herbal essence production skills.
