Spring Forest Qigong

As a Spring Forest Qigong practitioner, I embrace the goal of helping to bring health and wellness to as many people across the globe as possible and fulfilling Founder Master Chunyi Lin’s vision of “a healer in every home and a world without pain and suffering.”

Spring Forest Qigong has pursued this goal since 1995 with two main paths: Teaching people how to heal themselves, and teaching people how to heal others.

I am a Certified Practice Group Leader, having completed Practice Group Leader training, Spring Forest Qigong Level 1 for Health, and Spring Forest Qigong Level 2 Qigong for Healing.

Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®

The Grief Recovery Certification Training provides the tools needed to effectively help grievers recover from loss as well as an opportunity for personal healing. The program was developed by someone who was going through loss himself so this is not just a theory, but also a method that has worked for millions of people continuously over the past 35 years. More information available at The Grief Recovery Institute website here:


Holographic Memory Resolution® is a new bodymind approach developed by Brent Baum that allows expedient access to past memories and helps to achieve resolution of the painful emotions associated with such events without having to “relive” such experiences and without affecting historical memory. I have completed Level 1, Level 2, and the Healing Intensive with Brent. While I do not offer HMR directly as a service, I have been influenced in profound ways by this training.

You can learn more about Brent and HMR at his Healing Dimensions website:

Certified Professional Coach Training

The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) Provides Comprehensive Coach Training Programs That Fully Prepare Each Participant to Succeed in Their Industry – and in Their Own Objectives. Having completed all three modules of the Professional Coach training through the iPEC program, I have found that many of its principles and practices weave their way throughout my work.

Integrative Chakra Therapy®

I completed Integrative Chakra Therapy (formerly called Spiritual Healers Training) with Dr. Richard Jelusich in 2014. This training is comprised of 18 levels spread out over nearly two years of study and supervised practice.

Of all of the training I have had to date, working with Dr. Jelusich and my fellow healers in this class has had the most profound effects on my life and my work. Additionally, I have really found a great deal of alignment and resonance with one of Dr. Jelusich’s teachers, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama, the founder of the California Institute for Human Science (among many, many other accomplishments). I will continue to study the works of each of these men for a long time to come.

More information is available at Dr. Jelusich’s website Light News –

New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation

While I do not offer this directly as a service, the training and experience has had a big effect on my work and evolution. The training itself is very hard to put into words, so I’ll borrow from the NPMDT website:

The essence of New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation is love without conditions and respect for all life forms. We recognize the Divine energy that created the entire universe with all life forms and that we are an intrinsic part of that same Creation.

My perspective is that one’s experience with this training will depend on where they are at on their path, and what their instructor brings into the process. I feel fortunate to have trained with Terrie Curry while she was located in the Chicago area. I completed both the Basic Master and the 13D Master classes in 2012. Shamballa On!

Bachelor of Arts, Kent State

Even though it was oh so long ago, I am re-integrating all of my life’s experiences more and more as my path becomes clearer. I’m pleased to be recalling and weaving into my work a great many things I learned at Kent while majoring in Psychology and Philosophy. For example, I remember studying a channeled work called A Course in Miracles in a philosophy class, and spending a semester working on the topic of Death and Dying in the experimental college.
