First thing's first. I would like to thank my dearest teacher, Dr. Suzanne Friedman, for sharing her knowledge of the Yijing Medical QiGong System, for her sense of humor, skillful translations of ancient Chinese practices and cosmology into our western understanding of health, and for making me believe in the power of intention.
Your mind is the most important tool for restoring your health. Allow Maria to teach you how to use it.
