Background I struggled with health issues and chronic pain for several years. I was looking for a comprehensive way to deal with these nagging issues.When I was 16 two brain surgeries brought in me into a state of near death. My experience between surgeries led me to deeply question my experience and life as a whole. At that point in my life my fundamental understanding of life derived from my education, largely focused on understanding life from the perspective of math and science.
When I first learned some Ren Xue, the parallels between my math and science perspective of life and Ren Xue understanding were baffling. This led me to learn and apply Ren Xue from a highly critical perspective. As I applied my understanding about life and health deepened and grew which resulted into a passion for teaching and working with other science minded individuals to explore all experiences of being human from a scientific perspective. This has led to comprehensive change of my life and many that I have worked with.
I am left with gratitude and hope for a bright future for humanity!

Uplifting Thought Patterns
Do you have any habits, thoughts or situations you want to improve? By understanding our own reference system and identifying the thought patterns that keep us from moving forward, we are able to use the tools of Ren Xue to help face those parts of ourselves and replace them with more positive, and healthy habits and patterns. Take this class to learn more about yourself, the areas that are stopping you from finding joy and how to make positive changes.
Method I and II
Take time out of your day to relax and replenish your Qi (energy). Enjoy simple, light movements that help release tension in the body, especially the shoulder and neck area, and help you gather more energy. Finish with a standing meditation that helps calm and focus the mind, relaxing and turning inward.
Stretch, flex and breathe your way through a practice that offers strength, beauty, power and grace. We will move to open up the energy channels in the body, while strengthening our connection of our body and mind. Leave feeling energized and in-the-flow.
Our organ systems are part of our foundation for health. Whether you have a specific condition you would like to improve or clear, or you are looking for organ health maintenance, this practice is a way to access the health of the organs through simple movements, hand postures, sounds and visualizations.
