Our Staff

Greetings, My name is Michael (Otter) Malone  I am the  editor and director of this website as well as designer, technician and champion of the cause of environm ental awareness, world peace, social harmony and personal empowerment. I intend to be adding others to the staff, and their profiles will appear here too.

I am a capable teacher of a multidisciplinary movement science called qigong (energy cultivation) which is a non-religious discipline comprising both attitudes and techniques that contribute to the ability to focus attention. Daily practice of qigong can enhance our sense of well being, intelligence, longevity, and overall self actualization. Qigong is a science of enlightenment that makes up part of the foundation of a multicultural field of esoteric sciences which all agree whith the latest assertions of quantum physics, that in subtle and sometimes gross and plodding ways, we do each literally create our own realities.

I have been a student of qigong since 1986, studied Chi-Lel with master Luke Chan in 1988, and have been teaching my own unique blending of self healing practices to adults, children and groups since 1995.

My BS in Psychology (U.F. 1989) with a focus on cognitive development was a large part of my formative experience. My passion for sharing awareness of the subtle intricacies of our consciousness makes me uniquely qualified as a teacher of qigong and other meditation techniques. With several valuable years experience in consensus decision making in an intentional community setting, I am a graduate of the 250 hour "Meditattion Instructor & Energy Healing" Program from NCSNH (2001 North Carolina School of Natural Healing). A student of master Zhongxian Wu (multiple lineage holder) Michael has studied with many qigong masters including Richard Leirer, Dirk Oellibrandt, Mingtong Gu, and Foo Wei Zohong. Michael has also studied Asian energy anatomy with Genie Hardee, creator of Hardeework Integrative Ecclectic Shiatsu.
