I have always enjoyed all things natural, even as a child. Growing up in a small farming village with six siblings, assorted dogs, cats, birds and fish, I was steeped in interconnectedness and in knowing that we are all part of a Whole.
My background in education, spirituality, and healing with whole foods led organically to my current focus of providing experiences that connect us with Oneness, oneness within and oneness with all.
I appreciate how the consistent practice of T’ai Chi Chih provides an ever deepening experience of this Oneness in a very direct, tangible way. Therefore, providing T’ai Chi Chih classes is an integral part of who I am, what I do and what is closest to my heart.
My Journey with T’ai Chi Chih
In the beginning years of this millennium, while studying summers for an MA in Spirituality at Creighton University in Omaha, I saw groups of students practicing T’ai Chi Chih in the dorm commons. I was curious! They shared with me that it gave them the energy and focus they needed for their studies. I was definitely intrigued!
In 2004, I signed up to experience T’ai Chi Chih for myself because I was faced with a heavy course load. From the very first class, I knew that I wanted to teach this practice to others! It gave me the ability to work late into the night reading textbooks and writing papers and still be alert and ready for my early morning classes. That is a gift at any age and I was hooked!
During those early years, I noticed additional gifts: no further fibromyalgia episodes, greatly reduced arthritis pain, a lessening of PTSD symptoms and a sense of peacefulness that grounded my busy daily life. In the ensuing years I came to understand that it was healing all levels of my being at a very deep level, teaching me to connect to my inner knowing and allow my actions to flow from that space of Oneness within and Oneness with All.
Since becoming accredited to teach in 2010, I have taught T’ai Chi Chih to people from all walks of life in both individual and group formats and in a variety of settings. I have also enjoyed teaching Seijaku, Serenity in the Midst of Activity, to my long term students. For the seven years prior to the Pandemic, the campus of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Brentwood, NY was my home base. Since Covid 19 restrictions were established, I have been teaching students online using Zoom. This has enabled students from Florida to Canada, Long Island to Ohio to participate in a convenient effective format. I continue to teach individuals and group classes on Zoom.
