D.I.O. is Doing It Ourselves.
D.I.O. stems from D.I.Y.
D.I.Y. originally was so punk, only the crusty punks heard of it through D.I.Y. zines. Now it has a reality T.V. show named after it, a podcast and who knows what else. D.I.Y. kicks butt! This Gorilla still loves it. (Notice weird PUNctuation.) However, now, 2012 style, we need a new system. We need Community and Support out there. No D.I.Y’er is their own island. This is where D.I.O. comes in.
Gorilla Acupuncture stems from a D.I.Y. attitude, but understands that sometimes we need a little help from our friends, family, and community. Gorilla Acupuncture wants to create a community based D.I.O. system where other healers, practitioners, doctors, spiritual leaders, and of course Y.O.U.! come together to discuss, learn, and participate.
Healing can be difficult and D.I.Y. is the only path towards ultimate improvement…but outside assistance at times is needed and necessary. This is where a new attitude of D.I.O. is born.
Become a Gorilla here. Listen, Learn, Participate!
Here is the actual quote from John Donne:
- No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.
- John Donne, Meditation XVII
English clergyman & poet (1572 – 1631)
