Healer Within Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corpopration, advances community-based Qigong/Tai Chi and other self-healing, body-mind-spirit practices through collaborations with individuals and organizations, to sponsor trainings, community practice groups and research.
The Healer Within Foundation invites you to participate in a special elebration honoring our Community Practice Groups!
On November 15, 2017, we will salute Santa Barbara’s longest ongoing Qigong and Tai Chi Community Practice Group (CPG). Spanning a total of 35 years in existence, the group began in Santa Barbara as an offering of the acupuncture clinic of Healer Within Foundation co-founder, Dr. Roger Jahnke, OMD. This group has become interwoven into the fabric of life in Santa Barbara throughout its decades of existence. It's model is simple and approachable for all who wish to attend, $5 per attendee, per week...just as it began 35 years ago.
For the past 24 years, with few exceptions, the group has been led by Dennis Furuike. Along with featured guest teachers from the area, Dennis and his wife Setsuko have dedicated many hours and lots of love to sustaining this group with heart and soul for 24 years. The Santa Barbara Practice Group is a shining example for other groups that have since blossomed across the country and around the world. It has been our pleasure at the Healer Within Foundation to sponsor the Santa Barbara CPG for the past 15 years.
The vision of Community Practice Groups existing all over the world show how, "Training thousands to improve the health of millions" can be a reality. With every new practice leader we train, another community can potentially benefit in experiencing the abundant benefits of practice.
