last major hurdle in massage school

Here in Massage School in Creston Colorado, we have to take 3 sets of oral exams. The main teacher asks us questions and pries into our knowledge to see how well we understand the topics he has been covering for the past 6 weeks.

We are now on the last set of orals. And it is pretty crazy – we have to know about 15 pages worth of material covering everything from What is Chi Kung (foundations, principles, etc), Tell me ALL about the Yin and Yang Meridians and the Strange Flows, What is the TCM view on suffering and pain?, Go In Depth about your Enneagram numbers gifts integration fears etc, and much much more. We have to be able to elucidate on 10 separate categories – all at least a page long(!).

So if you don’t hear from me for several days.. its because I am reviewing and hopefully cramming this info into my mind! It looks like I will start my test Wednesday afternoon or Thursday.

I am learning a ton, packing an awful lot into 12 weeks here. Oh and tomorrow we go into the nearest city and we will be treating 12 people each in the course of 4 hours! Then we have a physiology test and then we treat our normal practicum people… If it sounds exhausting, it almost is. But I think the Chi Kung we do daily helps to keep our chi levels high and radiant.

Until soon,
