Friends and colleagues:

If you have ever wanted a replete introduction to Qigong (Emei Lineage) by an adept—at an extremely reasonable cost ($60 for four days)—this is it. My long-time friend Devatara Holman is the instructor. Nothing Devatara does is “derivative.” She speaks Chinese fluently, lived in China for seven years, and was the personal attendant and interpreter to the Emei Lineage Head, Grandmaster Fu Weizhong, of whom she is a senior student. See below about the introductory presentation this Wednesday at 7:30. This will prep you for an “immersion retreat” beginning Nov. 7. I’ll be there for it all. Tell your friends too...
