From the River to Lakeshore


After living in urban, downtown Brainerd for a little over 2 years, we are finally moving into a more suitable home. We are moving from the shores of the mighty Mississippi River to the shores of beautiful Mille Lacs Lake in early November. This is like a dream come true for me. I’ve always wanted to live on a lake especially in Crow Wing County. The house is perfect for us and much more space and more modern, appropriate wiring.

I’m taking a break from weekly practice groups for a few months while we move. So, watch the Facebook feeds for updates

Garrison Practice Group

Mille LacsLake has wonderful energy. Come enjoy it with us at Awakening Waters (2 miles south of Garrison on Highway 169 on the right hand side at the Smith Lake Road Intersection). We have a practice group that meets from 6-7:15 every Tuesday evening. Come as you are – Everyone is welcome. Even if you’ve never done Qigong before. It’s a great way to learn and to keep your own practice fresh. We spend about 30 minutes doing gentle movements and slowing down the breath which helps to open the energetic pathways in the body. Then, we have a guided healing meditation for about 30 minutes. During the meditation I will send energy and balance each person. $5 donation requested.

Classes are forming – look for a Heal yourself with Qigong class, Inner Smile Meditation, Healing Sounds & Balancing 5 Elements coming soon.  For more information go to
