Qigong Reading To Enlighten
The Center of Qigong
Life Meets Mastery as Energy Cultivates Balance for Health and Happiness
"I had just left a fifteen year old business in search of my next thing. After asking a friend for ideas that would challenge me, she suggested studying Qigong with Debra as the teacher. I didn't know that it would become a centering piece in my life, offering additional tools for balance, knowledge and a way to discover ancient virtues that are timeless. As an instructor, Debra is centered, embracing, knowledgeable, organized and commited to teaching her students, encouraging learning and healing. I found Debra easy to talk to, willing to listen and able to challenge me whereever I am at the moment. She has taught me healing intentions, moving meditations and the harmonious relationships of my body. That is saying quite a bit when you consider that I didn't even know where all of my organs were when I started!
