One World, One Dream…

One World, One Dream…

EDITED BY BARBARA LOWELL AND CHESTER WHEELER FROM WRITINGS BY DRS. LESLIE GRIFFITH AND CONNIE CLEMONS-CHEVIS

This article is a collaboration of the travel logs and conference memoirs of Drs. Leslie Griffith and Connie Clemons-Chevis for our readers.  Words only begin to skim the surface of the vast sea of inspiration and insight gained from this extraordinary two week adventure jam packed full of TCVM knowledge and endless Chinese cultural immersions. In the words of author Miriam Beard, “certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”
