Two Categories of Participation

2.  RLWQ Personal Health Retreat is for women who wish to learn RLWQ for themselves, and immerse in a supportive, healing environment with like-minded women.  There are no pre-requisites for those coming on a Personal Health Retreat. About 1/3 of the women come for this reason.

* Please note: participation does not guarantee certification…in order to be certified as a qualified practice leader, due diligence of your practice must be done so that Daisy, the board of directors and your future students are assured of your ability to represent the system well through your commitment to practice, attitude and thorough understanding of the constituent parts and whole of the practice.

RLWQ Level 2 Instructor Certification

RLWQ Level 2: Lotus Rises Long Form:  can be taken with no pre-requisites for personal health and learning, or for certification with pre-requisites.  You must have your Level 1 Certified Practice Leader Certification if attending the Level 2 Instructor Certification.  It is recommended that you would have taught Level 1 for at least 6 – 12 months before enrolling in Level 2.

The Lotus Rises Long Form goes beyond the modular Medical Qigong practices that form the foundation of Level 1 practices and expands into the elegant and empowering 16-movement Lotus Rises long form plus the Kwan Yin Star Song.

RLWQ 2 is divided into two parts for easy learning:

3-5 day Form Intensive (depending on location):  taught by Daisy who will share the intricacies of each of the 16 movements. At this time, there are 3 locations where Daisy will be teaching this form in 2019:  Colorado,  Pennsylvania, and Toronto  Please check the 2019 Schedule on this site for registration information.

6 day Instructor Training: taught by Daisy and sometimes a co-teacher, including segments on women’s sacred anatomy and energetics, holistic healing remedies, meditations and more.  You will gain deeper insights, experience joyful learning and leave with renewed understanding of your body, mind and spirit.  An online zoom exam is scheduled after 180 days of home practice and integration. (*please note, an additional fee applies once  you are ready for testing).  Once you become a RLWQ Level 2 Certified Instructor, you may teach the 16-movement form to your students.

Note:  there will be no certifications in this level in 2019, but the program is scheduled for late 2020 in Isabela, Puerto Rico…details will be announced as they come in! Thank you for your patience as we are in the midst of construction on the Radiant Lotus Retreat Center!
