One and two day Qigong workshops are offered in California and Hawaii, and elsewhere by invitation. Please check the calendar for information on upcoming workshops. Everyone is welcome to attend workshops regardless of physical condition or experience. For maximum benefit, come with an open mind, an open heart and a willingness to learn. Even if you are not feeling well, you are encouraged to attend if possible. You may sit or lie down (even sleep) during workshops as they are a place for finding harmony and balance, and sometimes rest is what is needed. Everyone benefits from the amplification of pure qi during the extended group practices during workshops.
Many workshops are held in our Elfin Forest Qigong Studio, a beautiful straw bale building in rural Elfin Forest, in North San Diego County, California. The studio is set in an abundant fruit orchard, the building is solar powered and has radiant heated floors. The Elfin Forest Qigong Studio is easily accessed, approx. 6-12 miles, from Encinitas, Carlsbad, Escondido, San Marcos, San Elijo Hills, Vista and Rancho Bernardo. Please contact us to request directions.
Workshops on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii are taught at inspiring locations such as Paleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary in South Kona. For everyone’s comfort, please refrain from wearing perfumes, aftershave, essential oils, any strong smelling lotion or sunscreen to workshops. Want to host a Qigong workshop in your area?

Qigong retreats are for anyone who wants to transform their awareness to greater wellness and happiness. Everyone is welcome to attend retreats regardless of physical condition. For maximum benefit, come with an open mind, an open heart and a willingness to learn. Even if you are not feeling well, you are encouraged to attend if possible. You may sit or lie down (even sleep) at anytime. Retreats are a place for finding support, compassion, joy, playfulness, peace, wisdom, harmony and balance. One of the greatest benefits in attending a retreat is the opportunity to connect deeply with the amplified pure qi created during the strongly focussed group practices.
“Absolutely fantastic! The retreat was well organized, flowed perfectly, wonderful people. Martha and Leonard are so kind, thoughtful and hospitable. Qigong is a powerful practice of connecting to energy inside and out. I feel energized, relaxed, strong, balanced, grounded. Qi is flowing . . . all is well. Heart is full of love for Hawaii and gratitude for Leonard and Martha. Feel full of information and am excited about continuing practice of qigong to improve and maintain wellness. Being in Hawaii made the experience so special, with the spirit of aloha all around.” —W.S., Encinitas, CA
