On a previous post by Snake (Tai chi)he posed the question of the possibility of getting Master Lin to the UK to give a workshop or even to set up an SFQ centre.
Obviously there has to be a demand for this
and it has to be a viable proposition.
Would any SFQ'ers in the UK who would like to progress beyond Level 2 but who cannot afford (for whatever reason)to travel to Minnesota for the 3rd & 4th levels please add their request to this post. If possible please give the area where they live as maybe somewhere central might be needed.
Thankyou,

Hi Faune,

Thanks for starting this thread. I would also be very interested in doing further levels. Equally, I'd like to learn Levels 1 & 2 directly from Master Lin. It would also be lovely to know just how many of us are practicing in the UK and where.

Best wishes
Mick - nr Hereford.

I am returning to Qigong after a break and am beginning to make it part of my daily practice.
I would be very much interested in working with Chunyi Lin of he came to Britain. I live in the London area but would be happy to travel particularly to a country retreat and would be able to suggest a wonderful venue in Somerset.
Thanks for starting this thread and here's hoping for 2006!
Regards

I would also be interested in learning Qigong in England.
I'm also wanting to make Qigong more of a part of my life and to help others.

Hi,

I have started practising SFQ from the Level 1 video and audio CD's. I used to practise with Mantak Chia for over 5 years but have found SFQ to be more gentle and effective for me. I live in London and I would also be interested in attending any workshops by Master Lin. Also,if anyone in London wants to get together for practise sessions that would be great as well. My email is mervyndsouza@hotmail.com

I'd certainly be interested in Chunyi Lin coming to the UK for a workshop(s)too. I'm based in Nottingham.

I live in Manchester area and have recently obtained Level 1 and 2 home study course. I have been doing Level 1 for a couple of weeks and am enjoying it and would also be very interested in Chunyi coming to UK especially for Levels 3/4 or retreats for levels 1/2

Hi all,
Thank you all for adding your names to the request. I think that we will need quite a lot more SFQ students to make our request a viable one. If any of the users of this forum are from UK please consider adding your name to this thread.
Thank you
Love & light

Hi fellow UK Qigongers

I'm presently in Kidderminster but plan to move to W. yorkshire in a few weeks and would love to get together with any practitioners up north.

I've only been practicing SFQ for just over a week but feel great. I do an hour active in the morning which just flies by plus another 30 mins if I can during the day and a 30mind small universe at night.

I've previously been practicing shibashi qigong and although I felt more Qi doing that I feel it's down to a much easier breathing technique. Once I've got a handle on the reverse breathing I'm sure this will be more effective.

blessings,

Dean

Hi there Faune,
I may be in Belfast (anyone else out there on the Emerald Isle so we could hook up for a pint?!)
but I would be more than happy to travel anywhere else in the UK - cost-wise any of the main cities would be best for me e.g. Edinburgh/Manchester/Glasgow/London.
best wishes
Ingrid
(PS: if we don't yet have enough numbers to justify a visit by Master Lin over here just yet - would we maybe be able to have a get together somewhere central in the meantime? Also - how might we try promoting SFQ more over here?)

If I were in the UK at a time when Chunyi Lin was there, I would possibly be interested in attending his course.

I visit the UK frequently and would also like to know if there is anyone doing SpringForest Qigong that lives in or near the Leeds-Askern area.

I would also be interested in this. I am located in London. I purchased the first course from life tools a few years ago but haven't really got into it due to time constraints. Doing a course with Chunyi Lin would definitely kick start me in to action I feel.

Well guys,

I recently read in a post or Email from LS that Master Lin does not travel outside the USA so perhaps we are being too hopeful at this point.

Maybe sometime in the future?
Keep adding your names though, so that we can show enough interest to make a course a viable option.

Love and light

Have any of you tried to contact Normandale college about setting up a workshop? I contacted them some time ago about one outside of Minnesota and they seemed receptive. Although I'm in the USA maybe they would consider sending one of Master Lin's instructors to you if there's enough interest. The E Mail address I contacted is ncal@normandale.edu.

This question has been brought up on this forum numerous times but as far as i am aware there has never been any positive reply from Master Lin. I would love to learn the higher levels from Master Lin directly and would jump at the chance to learn from him in person.

Over the years I must have gone through the level 1 & 2 material perhaps 15 or 20 times. Each time i pick up something as if i hear it the first time. These are words of a true master and thus have immense value if one is serious. There are aslo guided meditations available for levels 3 and 4 on the SFQ website.

There is really enough to keep you busy for several years.

If there were the intent for Master Lin to travel to the UK i am sure we would have heard by now. I tried contacting the SFQ Guild in the US but no-one replied, perhaps Alex or Shawn can update us.

If anyone is sufficiently serious and would like to meet up for regular group meets in the London/M4 corridor area i'd be happy to hear from you.

updating for England since last posting in 2006. Are all of you who posted originally still practising? Are there any others who have started since? I and my partner live in Cumbria at the moment, though will be looking for a new home in the South West in 2010.

Dear All,

I am recently new to SFQ and am very keen to learn the practices and excercises. I have the book Born a Healer and from that I can already sense the power and benefits of this system. I am recovering from a financial disaster due to being made redundant a year ago, so can't really afford to buy the level one and two course at the moment.

If the Master were to come to UK I would move mountains to try and be there.

Does anyone know where I can buy a used version of the level 1 & 2 de-luxe course in the UK?

Thanks Guys.

Hi,

I'm based in south-west London. I'm returning to SFQ after years of doing Zhineng Qigong which failed to make a significant improvement to my health issues. I think we definitely could use a SFQ group over here. I'm tired of everything good being only in America, we need help too!

Dear All,

Some of you may know that in order for Master Lin to achieve his vision "a healer in every family, a world without pain" he is encouraging the formation of practice groups. I am a level 3 SFQ practitioner and I am setting up a practice group in London. If anyone is interested in finding out more please email me on sf.qigong.uk@gmail.com

Best wishes,
Jonny

Hi. I just joined the forum, having been a yoga, meditation, transformation of trauma and ecotherapy practitioner for many years. I'm just beginning SFQ online and am loving it - it resonates deeply with me and I feel it is destined to be very important in many lives in the future. I would also love to see Master Lin come to the UK. Is there anyone in or near Scotland who practices or teaches SFQ?

KInd regards - Harmony

Me too - have been inspired by this.
Also as per MickT's comment would be really great to get full list of SFQ members as only found details of place in Stratford on Avon.
Please post us a full list please!
