  March - April  2016   SCHEDULE  


Spring is here!

The recent seasonal empowerment for Springtime was "Excited Insects", nature's expression of this powerful time of year when our intentions are energized towards their manifestations. I was amazed that day a large moth about the size of a bat, pictured above, flew into my studio flying around like it was blessing the space. When it flew out, it rested at the front door, as if greeting all the students who attended class that evening.

This is a most important time of the year for active Qigong practice. Our Spring Intensive on March 19 is "Six Healing Sounds/5 Element Theory", a full day to explore the inner road map of our energy body and detailed instruction of the Six Healing Sounds, movements and Sacred Alchemical Steps of the Fusion of the 5 Qi form. 

On April 16, Reyna and I co-teach a technical workshop to individually correct each participants forms as part of "Essence of Movement in Qi Cultivation". We are returning from Frank Chan and Dr. Eva Lew's Medicine Begins With Me Retreat and will share the gems we learned.

Our Chinese new year celebration for year of the Fire Monkey were a great success and you can photos and videos on our Facebook page - Fay McGrew (Qigong). Thanks to all who participated at Hidden Pine Studio and San Diego Chinese New Year Cultural Fair in San Diego. 

My schedule has changed at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego so I will be able to sub for Reyna's Monday classes at Ed Brown Center in Rancho Bernardo while she is in China for Qigong training.

I was honored to make a presentation about Qigong at the recent National Military & Veteran's Summit on Resilency where Deepak Chopra was the keynote speaker. Link to San Diego Union Tribune article about the conference.

Looking forward to continuing our journey together for health, empowerment and
inner truth.
