Joe’s Journey with Qigong

I’ve been practicing Spring Forest Qigong since 1995 and have completed all four levels twice.

I became certified to teach level one in January 2009 and have taught Qigong classes at Washburn Community Education, Present Moment, Powderhorn Park, and at the YWCA Midtown Minneapolis.

I received master healers recognition from Spring Forest in October, 2009, and  I have attended the emotions retreat, teacher training, master healer certificate training, and the Spring Forest Guild Retreat, all to deepen my understanding of this wonderful practice.

I have volunteered with the Spring Forest Guild association, with Guild Reachout, and with healing through the Guild.

If you are interested in taking a class or starting a class please contact me and we’ll get one going.
