Traditional Acupuncture and Dharana Art at the Dragon Boat Festival

September 21, 2014 4:23 am Published by

Traditional Eastern Medicine participated in this year’s RI Chinese Dragon Boat Race Festival in the Blackstone Valley. The race was a colorful spectacle of visually stunning Dragon Boats, thundering drum beats and cheering crowds. Hundreds gathered on this clear warm September day, eased by fall breeze. It was our first showing at a vendor event, and it couldn’t have been more exciting.

I  debuted my new line of Dharana products, which included limited edition fine art prints, tee shirts and tote bags, all of which can be viewed at  Also for sale were Brilliant by Nature body products and Farmacy Herb teas.

Days leading up to the event, Elon, our lovely project manager, and I worked long hours getting ready. There was so much to do: purchasing products and information packets, figuring out ways to display products, making banners, and getting shelving. There is a surprising amount of work that goes into preparing for a vendor event, especially for a first time vendor. Fortunately, Elon had years of experience doing vendor events during her undergraduate years, and her expertise was vital in getting everything done. Of course, we couldn’t have done it without Leila, our graphic designer extraordinaire and IT trouble shooter.
