About Me

Jeff has been training in qigong since 2007. He is board certified through the National Qigong Association as a Clinical Qigong Practitioner and Level 2 Qigong Instructor. He has completed 9 years of clinical qigong training as well as a 2 year teachers training in the Luohan Gong system as taught by the late Sifu Gasper Garcia. Jeff is also a certified instructor in Jingui Golden Shield Qigong, Kaiut Yoga, and an ordained minister and teacher through the Clairvoyant Center of Hawaii in clairvoyant meditation and spiritual healing work. Jeff loves these particular systems of training because they're all based on tools that allow people to grow and heal themselves without giving away their power or devotion to a teacher outside of themselves.

Jeff is originally from Michigan, moving to Colorado for nearly 12 years in 2010 to train in qigong, using these practices for profound healing and growth in his own life. Jeff loves hiking in high altitude, mountaineering, and being in the quiet of nature. Jeff has a long background in martial arts, and has also spent nearly a decade in his younger years performing and teaching in the circus arts. He loves to pass juggling clubs with others whenever possible. When time allows, Jeff enjoys spending time in ceramic studios, building art projects, hiking mountains, or a quiet walk through the magical rainforests of the PNW.

 

Jeff currently lives in Kitsap county where he offers ongoing classes in Jingui Golden Shield Qigong, Luohan Gong, and Qigong Guided Meditations to all who wish to learn.

Our Philosophy

At Centered Living, our philosophy is rooted in a beginners mind. To approach this work with amusement, playfulness, curiosity, and giving ourselves permission to be right where we are. We know that ultimately, each of us has our own answers within, and the ability to heal ourselves. Our job at Centered Living is to teach you the tools to activate your self healing ability and hold the space for you as we each walk this path of healing and discovery together. 

 

At Centered Living, we believe the path to creating true change comes from within our own personal healing and self cultivation. We also understand that healing and growth is not a linear process, but a journey, and no two healing journeys are exactly the same. Our goal is to encourage our students and clients to find the joy in the journey, to use their self healing tools, to validate themselves, to trust the process, and be gracefully committed to their own growth. 

Through our qigong based meditation practices and clinical qigong treatment services, we're committed to educating individuals in achieving a greater sense of health, vitality, and balance in their lives. We believe that everyone has the potential to achieve a greater level of health, energy, clarity, awareness, freedom, and connection to themselves and the world around them. At Centered Living, we're here to create a sanctuary; a safe space for your learning, healing, and growth on your journey as the fully capable soul you are.
