The First Graduates of Radiant Lotus Women’s Qigong
Dec. 31, 2009 ended with Qigong and a prayerful meditation to bring in fresh energy for the new year and to give gratitude for all the wonderful events that transpired in 2009 including:
2009 RLWQ Graduates
Isabelle, Jenn, Colleen and Chriss hold “koala-ty” mementos on RLWQ graduation day…
~ graduating my first four teachers from Radiant Lotus Women’s Qigong - congratulations again to Colorado residents Isabelle Mollien, Jennifer Wood, Colleen Cannon, and Chriss Cowan – I am proud to have you represent RLWQ and to hear of the lives you are touching and the many more you will serve with your knowledge, skill and heart!
2009: RLQ in US, Canada, Australia, China, Europe…
2009 marked more teaching and travel than ever – I was privileged to share Qigong across the US, Canada, Australia, China, and for the first time, Europe – a special thank you to my friends/hosts in Poland, Hungary, Holland, Germany and Sweden ~ Dave, Ania, Afsaneh, Tjie Lie and Gie, Maria and Ulla-Brit ~ your love and support, along with friends and students in your communities - has made teaching both a privilege and a joy! I look forward to sharing Qigong with you again this year and learning more about the uniqueness of your cultures and countries!
Qigong Study Trips to Thailand & China!
This year, there will be 2 Qigong Study Trips - one in April to Thailand, and our 13th annual Qigong study trip to China (the latter always the last two weeks of September as in previous years)!

I also had the privilege of teaching in Dallas on World Tai Chi and Qigong Day in Dallas, hosted by my dear friends Chris and Fayne Bouguyon (and supported by sons Kamin, Jaden and Galen!) Kudos to Bill and Angela Douglas for their heartfelt efforts and hard work in the ever-expanding World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events every April 24 weekend!
I had a wonderful time in Dallas and though I will be in Thailand same time this year, I will be in Dallas to teach the last two weeks of March. To learn more about my schedule there, visit www.simplyaware.com. Chris, himself a talented Tai Chi and Qigong teacher, has other wonderful instructors who will be visiting Dallas and sharing their talents in the coming months!
As well, a 2010 tigress hug to my beautiful friends from Elevate Films in L.A., Nadia Salamanca and Mikki Willis – not only for providing the space
at Elevate Presents Studio for my workshop last year, but spending time with you is always a treat! Check out Mikki and Nadia’s recent films on Rev. Michael Beckwith of “The Secret” fame!

Radiant Lotus Qigong Worldwide?
By popular demand, this year’s Radiant Lotus Women’s Qigong teacher certifications will take place across the country. This means extensive travel for me, but it is my hope to empower more qualified teachers to share this Qigong so that radiant health is possible for my “sisters” around the globe.

January 2010 Workshops
My love also to Sandy Vallone for putting together a spontaneous workshop in Torrance nearby…
…and I must share with you a funny story that speaks to the trust I have in the universe…Sandy and I met due to a friend who pirated our Beginning Practice DVD and gave a copy to Sandy…Sandy then called to ask if I would consider doing a workshop in LA area. How could I refuse her sparkling, forthright energy? I have yet to meet Sandy’s friend (she lives in Michigan actually), but I want to thank her for this humorous introduction to Sandy who has become a wonderful new friend to me!
Saturday, January 16:
I will be in LA on January 16 to do another (almost spontaneous) workshop thanks to Sandy Vallone’s enthusiastic planning, and look forward to seeing my LA tribe again soon! Call Sandy at (310) 502-6149 for details or check on my site’s Event Calendar.
Saturday, January 9:
On Saturday, January 9, I will be in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for a full day of teaching (2 half day programs, co-ed first, women in the second half). Thank you to dear friend/soul sister, Cheri Trousil of Humble Ranch for hosting me once again in gorgeous Steamboat Springs, the training ground for winter Olympic athletes!

Sunday, January 3:
For now, preparing to teach tomorrow, January 3, at Next Level Training Studio in Arvada/Wheatridge in Colorado…
another spontaneous event put together by my multi-talented friend – personal trainer/Qigong/Yoga/Tai Chi Teacher/musician/healer/mixed martial artist Brian “Seraiah” Wood…
and his wonderful veterinarian sister, Stacey, an enthusiastic newcomer to Qigong. I look forward to meeting new students and introducing them to the empowering self-healing techniques of Qigong! For more info or to register, call Brian at (720) 938-9088.
I’ll be back soon with more updates, including workshops in Sydney and Byron Bay, Australia in February, and in the meantime, send you all much love, light, and a r-r-r-r-roaring transition into the Chinese ‘Year of the Tiger’!
Much Love and Warmest Aloha To All,
