- Curriculum Vitae
 

Welcome to my website, which includes a more secure and streamlined shopping experience and more shipping options. My blog features background information on various topics as well as interviews of me and other practitioners.

I am perhaps best known as the author of "Tai Chi, the Supreme Ultimate," a classic text used by Tai Chi students throughout the world. I was a senior student of the great Tai Chi teacher Master Cheng Man-Ch'ing, in addition to other great teachers. All my books and DVDs for sale here were created as instructional materials to bring these inspired teachings to as many people as possible and in a clear and accessible manor.  

In addition to martial arts, I have studied, taught, and practiced many healing arts for over 40 years and have a deep understanding of how these disciplines complement each other. As a result, in consultations and workshops I frequently use more than one discipline depending on the needs of students and clients. 

I was one of the founders, directors, and teachers of the Atlantic Academy of Classical Homeopathy, which offered classes and certification in homeopathy, as well as lectures by internationally renowned homeopaths. 

I am a Certified Instructor for the National Guild of Hypnotists, the International Association of Counselors and Therapists, and the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and a member of the New York State Homeopathic Association and the American Polarity Therapy Association. In addition, I am a Certified Stress Management Consultant. 

In August 2009, I had the honor of accepting two prestigious awards at the National Guild Of Hypnotists (NGH) National Convention in Marlborough, MA. The first is the President's Award which is awarded for invaluable contributions to the success of the Guild. I shared this award with my colleague Dorothy Kerzner.

The other award is the Order of Braid, named for Dr. James Braid, considered by many to be the "father of modern hypnotism" who adopted the term "hypnotism" to describe his work. I am deeply honored to share this award with the other council members and I will continue to work with my talented colleagues to spread the word about the benefits of hypnosis.
