We all think of our brains as the CEO of our bodies. The perceived cut off point where information is processed is about at the neck. But all incoming information is dependent on emotional context. To ignore this is to cut off communication emotionally and logically. Qi gong is about becoming aware the brain heart connection and practicing the meditative movements of qi gong(energy work) which support this connection. You can rewire your brain by practicing qi gong and yoga. It is possible to create strong new mind body connection that can be scientifically measured. In short. Neurons that fire together, wire together. Stress can be contagious so even though you are doing all you can to be mindful of your own energy, sometimes you enter a meeting and the atmosphere is palpably tense, or you are in an important discussion with someone who has a very fixed mindset. This can affect your agility and resilience as a leader. Whether you are leading your children or your company. Qi gong is one tool that gives you instant payback when emotional, intuitive and compassionate awareness of your heart is balanced with logic and understanding. Join me for a session and learn how to balance the parallel flows of information like a pro.

A native of San Francisco California USA, I was influenced early on by the creative environment around the Bay Area. This fertile beginning enabled me to grow into what I am now. A spiritual empath, a medium, a teacher. The vital life force of humans, animals, and all that is in the universe is made up of distinctive frequencies, colors, sounds and relationships. My stepping stone to learn about this was Chinese Medicine. But it has gone so much beyond that and now I'd like to help others discover their own path to their own enlightenment. One basic concept in Chinese medical theory, which is what shiatsu and qi gong are also based upon, is to follow nature faithfully. This can mean to live according to nature by eating, dressing and behaving in accordance with the climate around us. It also means living according to ones own true nature. To be your authentic self so your life is harmonious and has true meaning. Good physical and mental health begins from this point. And further, a person in balance with themselves and the world around them creates a ripple effect in those they come in contact with, others are affected in a positive way. This is active compassion which is such an important part of Chinese medical and Buddhist logic that it is considered the main healing factor. The most important thing I experienced in my studies of Chinese medical theory and the hands on approach of shiatsu is that we truly are all connected by the life force that makes us humans on this planet. We feel better from our illnesses and traumatic experiences when we reach out to help others who are suffering. I know this for a fact. I have seen it thousands of times and lived it in my own life. Chinese medicine provided the framework for me to understand this basic concept. There are many frameworks and religions who teach the same thing. The point is I took action, I transformed what I once was, way out of balance, into who I am now, someone who allowed my traumatic experiences to propel me into a compassionate life. I am someone who listens without judgement or criticism to your story because I can understand and relate to your desire to be a survivor and not a victim. Every experience we have gives us tools we need at some point in our lives. I alone am responsible for the interpretation of events in my life. I broke through and so can you.
