James Powers, LAC

We are delighted to have ASP member James Powers, NY State 
licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, yoga/meditation teacher, 
lead us on a journey of exploration of our personal spiritual 
landscapes via dialogue and experiential exercises. James will 
provide attendees the opportunity to utilize gentle yoga methods, 
including breathing exercises, in addition to ear acupuncture, 
and meditation to dive deep within to connect with their inner 
spiritual wisdom to shed light on their personal spiritual journey. 
All activities are optional, gentle, and do not require any special 
equipment or clothing. No prior experience in yoga or meditation is 



The meeting will begin with a general discussion and sharing of our 
spiritual journeys including an examination of the destination of the 
spiritual unfolding process. We will also create our own creative, 
visual diagrammatic diary of our spiritual journey and the hindrances 
we have encountered on the journey. 
The next phase of the meeting will be experiential by utilizing very 
simple yoga movements/ breathing techniques, as well as ear 
acupuncture, and meditation to connect with our deepest wisdom 
to gain insight into our personal journeys and possible solutions to 
vexing obstacles in our spiritual progression.
Finally, in the last portion of the meeting, we will share our collective 
experiences and insights to shed light and clarity on our unique 
spiritual journeys.
