Guest Faculty

David Lee

Meditation, QI Gong

David Lee teaches qigong, meditation and yoga with more than 30 years of practice and 4 years of teaching experience.

During the first half of his life he had a stressful, unhealthy and extremely sedentary career as a film editor in New York City. His wife became ill and eventually passed and David lost his career while trying to support her.  Eastern mindfulness practices were the glue that held his life together, allowing him to retain his optimism, sense of humor and zest for life through the hard times. After his daughter graduated college, he sold all of his possessions and got a one way ticket to Asia.

There he immersed himself in the yoga and qi gong  that revitalized him, deepening his practice. Heeding the call to teach and serve others. Today he teaches people of all ages a blend of ancient and modern techniques to increase their vitality with a combination of qi gong, yoga, and meditation designed to increase flexibility, mobility, and strength.

Transformation Breathwork and Bio-Energetic Release Immersion

March 9-18 , 2019

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath”
– Amit Ray

In today’s human experience we can live in a state of being that is filled with tension in the body, emotions that are hard to understand and a disconnect to the breath system.  What you will learn here, you could take with you for the rest of your live. Breath is everything and it’s how we get our energy to life! These sessions open up the possibility of increasing your energy and restoring your emotions so you can find more balance as well as vitality and a feeling of positivity.

Transformation Breathwork is diving into breath, prana and energy. The detoxing effects of giving yourself time to focus on the breath will help teach the body to breathe more deeply, smoothly in a more relaxed but still energetic and balanced way.  This is the #1 way we get our energy and it’s 70% of our body’s detoxing power, assisting in overcoming charged emotional states or tensions of the mind and body.

The purpose of this training is YOU!  Giving yourself time for your body and mind to rest.  We will learn many simple release techniques that can be done anytime you feel stressed and work with guided and other forms of meditation to release emotional and physical blockages. Come explore, over 10 days, the power of breath to transform. Now is the time for positive change and energy, YOU deserve it.


Your Spirit Journey to Dharma begins by using the powerful tools of Breathwork, Meditation and Purpose Theory (BMP Theory). In this training we will explore the effects that increased focus and awareness BMP help to create in the body. The balancing effect of the breath shows up in being able to focus the mind or meditate beginning to see our divine purpose in this life. Transformation Breathwork (TB) is a pathway to explore increased happiness, presence, peace and positive energy because when you breathe in Life deeply the effects are feeling calmer, less tension and increased vitality. Transformation can happen in an instant, so come experience the breath work that transforms and is safe and easy to learn.

In this Transformation Breathwork and Energetic Detox Retreat we will:

  • Dive deeply into Breath, Prana and Energy
  • Explore the Power of Breath to Transform and Release Tension
  • Detoxify our Bodies and Minds through the Energy of Transformation  Breathwork
  • Gain Insight and Skills to Release energy blockages in ourselves and in others
  • Create more Space for Positive Change and Energy to flow into our Lives
  • Become a Transformation Breathwork Facilitator. This retreat can be used as the first in a 4 part series of trainings, learn how to give TB sessions to others in a  safe and caring environment, more details upon request

Transformation Breathwork is an experience that nourishes the soul and creates more freedom in the body-mind connection.  When at a Transformational Breathwork session you will experience first hand how to open the fascia system in places where stickiness can reside keeping us from taking a deep full breath. We will find connection among the community at the session and practice how to breathe more effectively for life, work, relationships and sports
