Lillian has been certified as a Medical Qi Gong Practitioner and Level 1 Qi Gong Instructor in 8 Brocade and 5 Elements (Traditional Chinese medicine energy exercises) by the Rising Lotus Qi Gong Institute.

Lillian is a life-long learner and empath whose passion lies in service to others and who has been consciously on the spiritual path since the 1970's, having traveled to many sacred sites around the world including China, Tibet and Egypt. She shares the message of mindfulness, meditation and energy healing because these practices have been life transforming for her—she recognizes a need in our culture to share the benefits of living in the now moment by offering processes that have been proven to reduce stress and to minimize runaway thoughts.
