I spoke to you on Tuesday about my kidney disease, and that it has improved
since I have been coming to your classes.

My GFR  has gone up 10 points since I have been doing QiGong with you.
GFR stand for Glomerular Filtration Rate. I still have Moderate decrease in
GFR, but am climbing towards the upper end now. I think that this is amazing
5 points up have occurred since August of last year.


I am 33 years old and have experienced intense fear of driving my whole adult life. Because of my fear I waited to get my license until I was 27 years old. I became more comfortable with driving in town and on slow highways but I still maintained my fear of freeways and of driving 60 and above. My fear was absolutely at an unmanageable level. My heart would race, I gripped the steering wheel and my whole body was rigid and shaky. I found myself in tears more times that I can remember. 


I have been doing qi gong for about three months now and feel deeply connected to the practice.  Last weekend I took a trip to Sonoma county on my own and was stricken by my calm and comfortable state of being.  I realized that I had just drove without fear. What a pleasant surprise! It felt miraculous. In my heart I knew that the shift was related to Qigong. I am certain that through the breath work and movement of energy I cleared a heavy and long standing blockage. 


I am so grateful to Homer and for his excellent teaching skills, kind nature and support and I am so excited to be experiencing the healing and transformative powers of Qigong. Cheers to our ancient teachers of health and wellness!

Testimony of a happy student.

The Nevada County Board of Supervisors have made a Resolution proclaiming April 27th as Gold Country Kiwanis Tai Chi and Qigong Day in Nevada County.

We had a great turn out. Thank you for everyone for coming and supporting our project.

We'll post some photos soon!
