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.
Learn some basic tools to help build support your Qigong practice. Whether you are a brand new beginner to Qigong or have practiced before but are new to Yuan Gong, this class will help introduce you to our style of Qigong practice. You will learn some simple techniques as well as experience a calm and relaxing state by practicing some for yourself. There will be time for questions and information on how to get the most from a regular Qigong practice.
Learn to grow through tough relationships. Whether you have a large family, small family, happy family, or troubled family, most of us have areas of our relationships that can be improved. Even if we are living in the same house or grew up close together, we all have our own reference system and habits. When these habits start to clash against one another's, it's helpful to have tools and understanding to return to balance. This class will uncover ways to maintain harmonious relationships and leave you feeling confident in facing challenges that arise.
