International Workshops suspendedto be resumed in 2021

Please Read my Blog entries for this year discussing ways to adapt our approach to healing and the therapeutic endeavor by drawing on the wider resources of the Daoyin / Do-In tradition. Less on-line; More Outdoors”: We can teach and practise Qigong, Taiso, Hara exercise and many similar methods in the open air and also learn  spacious Seiki practices which require presence and attention more than physical touch…. all is possible with imagination, patience and perseverance.
