About Qi Gong
About Two Trees Qi Gong
Qi Gong was developed and practiced by millions of people in Asia over the last 3,000 years to absorb life force energy (chi) from the environment, purge traumas embedded in the body, and build chi for wellbeing, spiritual and martial arts purposes.
Using breath, intention and gentle movement, Qi Gong relieves stress, clears the mind, and amplifies your energy and connection. Qi Gong is closely related to tai chi, acupuncture, yoga and meditation, but with a special focus on moving and building life force energy.

Two Trees Qi Gong gets its name from the Chinese character in our logo for the Lin Family (meaning "forest"). The original Lin ancestor gave birth holding onto two pine trees in a forest to which she had fled, after her husband, a minister to the infamous Emperor Zhou Xin, was executed for challenging the Emperor's corrupt practices in 1120 B.C.
Our family continues to seek upright action and integrity in all we do; 100% of class fee proceeds go to charity (we have selected hearttoheart.org, Charity Navigator rating over 96%, for medical supplies going to Ukraine). I also offer free workshops to residents and staff at two homeless shelters. Qi Gong exemplifies the merger of Self with Universe to produce a Good legacy!
For nearly four decades I have studied energy practices including Tai Chi, Reiki (Level 1 and 2 Certified), Yoga, Meditation, and Qi Gong from teachers including Grandmaster John Leong in Seattle and Robert Smith in Washington, D.C., and Qi Gong Grandmaster and Daoist Abbot Jerry Johnson in California.
I am a Certified Chinese Energetic Medicine Therapist and ordained Priest of Mystical Arts, training to become a Buddhist Lama and licensed Doctor of Chinese Energetic Medicine.
Married with three daughters, I retired after a career as an environmental lawyer and chief ethics officer.
The Class & Non-Profit Fees
Classes are Saturdays 8:30-9:30 am Pacific online in Zoom. (I also offer free workshops for residents and staff at two homeless shelters.) All levels are welcome and I try to make the class as fun and accessible as possible, with exercises and meditations usable anytime, anywhere to combat stress and reconnect to the natural universe. Students typically finish their practice deeply relaxed, energized and clear-minded.
Classes are recorded and archived in the "Members Area" tab above for review at your leisure.
As I teach out of passion not for income, giving back to the universe, our classes are only $20/month ($5 per class!). FIRST CLASS IS FREE; then, 100% of proceeds not necessary for site maintenance are donated to charity.
