What People Say

I just did a two­day, Level One qigong workshop presented by Jack Risk, with the able assistance of his wife, Chris. I highly recommend it to both new and old (like myself) practitioners. Jack is a brilliant teacher, putting himself in the student's place, anticipating problems and questions, meticulous yet relaxed. The weekend flowed—yet it was packed with information and learning. It left me recharged and inspired.
