Suzanne was a Qigong Master in a spiritual qigong lineage. She also had another teacher, Master YeYoung, who had inducted her into his family's Daoist inner alchemy & meditative qigong forms. The qigong treatments and exercises she taught us came from this medical tradition. Those exercises have been passed down from doctor to doctor since at least 300 BCE. So for me, I feel rather honored to have been trained and certified by Suzanne whose skills and abilities reach back so long ago.
Suzanne was undoubtedly the best teacher I ever had. Ever. She was so knowledgeable and experienced. She was gracious and encouraging, while mixing large doses of humor in all her lessons. She loved teaching and she captivated us through each of those 8 hour Qigong training classes. She was amazing; absolutely amazing!
During my very first Qigong training class I had some rather unusual experiences and I when I mentioned what happened to Suzanne, she was not at all surprised. This in itself let me know she had created a safe environment to allow subtle energy experiences to take hold, and also a safe place to share what was experienced.
After several Qigong classes, I had many subtle energy experiences. Suzanne finally said, "Beth, when are you going to stop being so surprised by all this? This is how it is." We both then laughed. Yep; this is how Qi works. It just seemed so remarkable to me, in part because I was so much older than everyone in class (almost 60) and it was the first time I had been exposed to this type of healing information, and in the open, no less!
I owe Suzanne a great deal. She opened a door and allowed me a safe place to learn and develop my subtle energy skills. I am so grateful I had the privilege of knowing her, and working with her. She played a very important role in my life journey.
