Qigong in Europe with Daisy

May 16, 2009 by  
Filed under Travels

budapestI am now in Toronto, Canada, after visiting with family and teaching Radiant Lotus Qigong for Women at my dear friend, Dr. Xiaolan Zhao’s busy integrated medicine clinic. We have come together again like long-lost sisters, laughing and crying as we share stories of over a decade of learning and growing in different countries. Tomorrow we will get together to celebrate her birthday, and then I leave for Europe.

The excitement of teaching in Europe for the first time bubbles up inside, but I need to stay focused on mundane things like packing. With two big suitcases and a computer backpack, traveling as a weightless Wandering Taoist is next to impossible, for as my late mother taught me, “one must bear gifts when visiting friends”. I feel somehow that the real gift I am bringing is not the pounds of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts or Hawaiian coffee, but the potential of vibrant health through the ancient and powerful self-healing art of Qigong!

Qigong in Poland

My sweet friend, Ania Kwiatkowska, who I met at the First Health & Longevity Conference in Beijing two years ago, will be hosting me in Poland. My schedule appears to be a good mix of work and play with sightseeing the first few days in Warsaw and Cracow (the first capital of Poland, I learned!) and south to the Zakopane Mountains. On the weekend, I begin my official teaching:

Introduction – Open to All

May 28 – Galeria Azjatycka (ul Freta 5) 6:00 pm

May 30 – Centrum Lowicka (ul Lowicka 21) 6:00 pm

Location: Warszawa, ul Jana Cybisa 1, Primary School nr 313

May 30, Saturday – 10:00 am – 13:00 pm

Qigong in Germany

On June 6, another friend, Tjie Lie and her husband Gie are supporting my work in Heilbronn, Germany. I will be teaching Radiant Lotus Qigong for Women in the morning, and Qigong for Optimum Health, a co-ed program for both men and women in the afternoon. The latter is amazing for weight loss, immune boosting, stretching and opening up the energy channels of the body to release blocked qi.

Sunday, June 7 is a full-day program for men and women, with teachings from my 102-year old teacher who has passed down a family system called Wuji Hundun, 18 movements for longevity, beauty and vitality. At 102, he is a good testament to Qigong’s health-promoting side effects! Rumor has it he fathered a child last year…Qigong works!

Qigong in Amsterdam

On June 10 I meet up with Afsaneh Tehranchi who had experienced such life-enhancing results from our style of Qigong that she wants to teach it in Amsterdam and throughout Europe. She is smart, dynamic and focused…a great partner and friend to help bring Qigong to Holand and beyond. For more info on the women’s qigong workshop on June 13 and the co-ed program on June 14, visit www.QiLife.com or email Afsaneh at info@qilife.com or call 020-7764200 to register.

It warms my heart to know that the reception to the teachings has been so positive across the US, Canada, Japan and Australia. Europe will be new ground for me, but I trust that people there are as ready for safe, simple, effective health exercises as they are here and in Asia. My wish is to empower people to access their limitless potential for vibrant health wherever I go, to give tools that work and which make life worth living. Perhaps in the not-too-distant future, finding a Qigong class will be as simple as one, two…qi!
…I had better finish packing and get some rest before I get too punchy. Europe here I come!

    Dear Daisy, I was so delighted by your QiGong class for women at the 2007 Qigong Conference in Minneapolis that I have longed to come to another class ever since! I am just now waiting for your DVD to be delivered here in Duluth, Minnesota….surely your warmth and wisdom will be very welcome here! I am hoping to come to your just announced class in LA in Sept.5&6 once I have more info. Until then, thank you for your graceful teaching. Katrina Tobey
