Testimonials

My week on Cortes Island with Minke and Dave was a wonderful and profoundly enriching experience – not only was I able to deepen my QiGong practice in a most beautiful setting with like-minded individuals, but I left feeling energized, my spirit renewed and very much healed. Minke is a most masterful teacher and a true treasure and I feel very grateful that she so openly shares her teachings and wisdom with so much love. Very much hope to return again in the future.

I really want you to know how much I appreciate your role modeling of someone who cares for themselves, unapologetically and abundantly cultivates and receives lots of juicy natural and Goddess energy, and emanates love and compassion for others. You truly bring blessings with you wherever you go!
