About me

I am passionate about sharing Ren Xue, it has changed my life dramatically; the way I relate to people, nature and how I live my life. Colleagues often comment how my presence can change how they feel when we are in a tricky, often emotionally charged meeting. It never seizes to amaze me that if I get into a calm, relaxed, and natural state of mind (we learn this in Yuan Qigong) how this influences my environment.

This too me is such a powerful thing, being able to use the wide range of Yuan Qigong tools available to us, in flexible ways. There is so much that we can change, of course this does not happen overnight but step by step I have no doubt that you too can make the changes that you are looking for.

Because life can be busy I love being able to use the methods flexibly and I like to share this with others without compromising the integrity of this amazing system.

For the last 8 years I have been running formal Ren Xue classes / workshops / retreats as well as informally integrating Ren Xue in supervision at work. For the last 5 years I have worked with teachers (kindergarten and primary schools) to bring Movement Mindfulness into their class and one whole school (practice based on Yuan Qigong.)

Since COVID I have joined the online community and now run one class a week with a focus on: Short, flexible moving and still Yuan Qigong practices, pattern discussion, and finish with a heart mediation. Please be in touch if interested.

I love watching people change, grow, and receive their feedback: "Now I really get it" or “I used a 5 minute practice before going to an emotional meeting and it helped me to connect with each person and remain calm”; "I finally cleared conflict with my dad' or a 5 year old who brushed passed me as she whispered “I have been doing it in the toilet" when I asked "what?" She showed me pulling Qi. I then asked: "Why' She replied: “Because I like feeling calm”

Kindergarten teachers are amazed that even their new intake of largely 2 year old's have responded to the practice.

Activity 2:

Supporting educators working in the education sector using Qigong to indirectly help their students learning; emotional and mental well being, using Qigong with staff or in the classroom

Having worked for over 20 years in the education sector for years, I have been lucky enough to use Ren Xue in supervision, work with colleagues interested in Qigong for their health and well being and deliver workshops using Movement Mindfulness in the organization I work for.

For the last 5 years sometimes with colleagues but mostly on my own I have worked with teachers in kindergarten and primary school settings to develop a  short Movement Mindfulness routine (based on Yuan Qigong) that are easy to be delivered daily by teachers with no experience or their students.

I continue to support teachers who like to implement this in their class room through workshops and then weekly sessions with the whole class. The aim with all teachers is that they or their students lead the sessions.

If you are an educator and would like to find out how you can bring this to your school, ensuring safety for yourself, your school, the children and their families, I am happy to share what I have learned and support you on your journey.
