I had been practicing qigong for several years when a work-related relocation made me consider online classes. The quality of personalization and depth of these sessions have been amazing. We delve into all aspects of the practices, seeing the spiritual, emotional, and physical effects. Not only is the vastness of Stuart’s knowledge awe-inspiring—from the meditations, external movements, internal alchemy, to the esoteric meaning of a Chinese character, but the depth of his direct experience helps you incorporate these teachings into daily life where they take on real meaning.

After knowing and learning from Stuart for about 15 years, we are always thrilled to take one of his new courses because he always delivers steady, reliable and new nuggets of wisdom in each course. The depth of the topics that Stuart covers are so profound, that you truly need a teacher of his caliber and background that you can follow year after year for the growth and assimilation of the knowledge to become embedded.
