Focus is on the body, mind, and spirit connection to show the inherent qualities within all of us that promote self-healing.
Erik holds a B.S. in Psychology from Springfield College in Springfield, MA. He applies what he learned about the mind and body connection to his practice. Erik finds that Qi Gong and Tai Chi allows us to empty our minds by focusing on the energy that flows through us. With the focus on Qi awareness comes to the present moment. In the present moment all things are possible.

Feeling the Qi from tea is liquid meditation. We sip the tea, feel good, and enjoy life.
