In 1996 Francesco Garri Garripoli brought his first study group to China so people could have a chance to study with the amazing elder Masters and healers that he had the good fortune to live with there and feature on the PBS TV documentary “Qigong – Ancient Chinese Healing for the 21st Century”. Francesco soon became the Chairman of the National Qigong Association (NQA) to help bring Qigong into the mainstream through a professional organization with over 900 members and an instructor and clinical practitioner Certification Program. Francesco, now a Senior Advisor and Certification Board Member of the NQA, is the author of “Qigong – Essence of the Healing Dance”, “Tao of the Ride”, and is featured in a series of Qigong instructional DVDs with Daisy Lee.
Now the Chairman of the Qigong Institute, Francesco leads (or co-leads with Daisy Lee) Study & Healing groups to power spots around the world including China, Thailand, Italy, Bali, India, Bhutan, and Tibet. Participants receive daily personal healing sessions as well as deepen their personal and professional practice.
Group trips can be effective ways to further your personal Qigong practice and help you learn more from a deep, cultural experience that takes you away from your daily responsibilities and pressures. Francesco Garri Garripoli & Daisy Lee have been leading Qigong Group Study & Healing Trips to powerful healing locations around the world including China, Thailand, India, Tibet, Italy, and Bhutan since the mid-1990's and their trips have facilitated over 700 travelers to learn more about Qigong and apply it to their life.
2016 offers amazing opportunities to experience the best of the study and healing journeys available. All programs are about two weeks in length and are all-inclusive with delicious food, upscale accommodations, daily personal healing sessions, Qigong classes and meditations twice daily, and an array of amenities to make these small-group adventures quite memorable and empowering.
Daisy Lee is certified as a Level III Advanced Qigong Instructor and Clinical Practitioner by the National Qigong Association of America, as well as being a past board member on the International Qigong Science Association in Beijing. She has studied and taught Qigong for almost 20 years, inspiring people from all walks of life to take greater responsibility for their own health and well-being. Her students include: doctors, therapists and cancer patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore, Maryland), and Women’s College Hospital (Toronto, Canada), youth and teachers in middle schools and high schools, Vietnam war veterans, and more.
With Francesco Garripoli, Daisy is featured on a series of Qigong Instructional DVDs that have sold in excess of 400,000 copies and in part support their non-profit Kahuna Valley organization which supports family and community healing initiatives.
