My Journey

Coach, Qigong Practitioner

I never felt conventional. My introvert side preferred deep connections and quiet spaces to work and live. My curiosity veers towards the spiritual, to rituals and ancient practices, with my path winding around Hawaii’s ho’oponopono, through astrology, and now Qigong, which seeks to align our breath, movement and heart to promote healing.

I suppose I was discovering myself and my connection to all that is. There was wisdom in embracing my broken pieces—I will never stop loving the metaphor of kinstukuroi, the art of broken Japanese pottery repaired with precious-metal lacquer and made all the more beautiful for that—and helping others march to their own drummer. If they can fall in like, if not love, with their idiosyncracies and embrace who they are, they discover a new chapter and find their authentic voice.

In creating Spring Forest Qigong, Master Lin has blended these components together into a system that is very simple yet so very powerful. Thousands of students have found the practice life-changing.
