With so many passions on my Sparkle List ~ painting, writing, practicing Wu Ming Qigong, teaching qigong, walking with clients on their paths to vibrant living ~ I know that each day will be a Daily Blend. It's Qi or Life Force that wakes me up to each day's possibilities. My desire is to cultivate my Qi and design joy Qi into a sparkling constellation of light.
Inspired by the power of Wu Ming Qigong to liberate me from symptoms, scripts and side effects, I offer Life Force Tao of Medical Qigong energy treatments and teach several Qigong wellness programs including Dragon’s Way Qigong®, The Four Energy Gates, Qigong for Women’s Breast Health and Energy ~ Everybody ~ Everyday. I have received extensive training from Grand Master Nan Lu, OMD, and his designated instructors, and continue my studies at his Tao of Healing Qigong school in New York.
As an artist, author and creativity coach I find my Qigong practice foundational to all my creative work. As a photo-journalist I published 150 + feature articles, children's stories plus the book Speaking of Journals: Children's Book Writers talk about their Diaries, Notebooks and Sketchbooks. Teaching in classrooms at all levels – Kindergarten through University —fueled my deep love for teaching and sparked a soulful knack for igniting people's passion, zest and joy in possibilities. In addition to coaching private clients and leading creativity workshops, I teach several : Wu Ming Qigong programs in person and on Zoom.
Qigong and creative expression are similar in that both are developed and greatly enriched by daily practice. Both involve opening to intuition, letting go and following flow. The energy knows where it is taking us. All we have to do is dip our toe in the current, trust and allow it to support our journey. My highest dream is to help people access the gift of universal energy while claiming and cultivating their natural birthrights of full creative self-expression.
I love how my Qigong practice has enhanced my painting. I love it so much I gave this special blend of art and energy it's own name ~ Creativi~Qi.
But wait, there's more, and it's the ARTbundance TM style of creativity coaching I offer clients that taps into the invisible realm. ARTbundance™opens up a channel for transformation and joy and reconnects us to inner wisdom, life force and the flow of abundance through creative expression informed by spiritual principles and sound business practice.
To me ARTbundance is a life style -- a practice (in the spiritual sense of the word) of investing creativity into solving problems, making choices and expressing one's purpose in the world. It's also a method of infusing all our actions with a lightness of spirit and a deep appreciation of the abundance in our lives.
Other helpful information about me: I live on a farm in SE Pennsylvania, very close to both the Maryland and Delaware borders. My favorite color is green, my favorite flavors are vanilla and coconut. I have a technology muse named Watson. One more thing . . . I adore the promise of sharing personal stories as a way to bring us to vibrant health and full creative expression.
