Minke de Vos  teaches spiritual embodiment at Silent Ground Retreats, and is known as a top teacher of Qigong,  self-healing and Kundalini Development. She has worked along side of Taoist Master Mantak Chia for over 25 years. She inspires practitioners of all levels to live with loving presence. Author of "Heart Qigong", CDs & DVDs for home practice.

David Gyurkovics Universal Tao Instructor, has studied and practiced Taoist internal arts for 18 years and has been teaching for 10 years. He is a practitioner of Medical Qigong and Acutonics Sound Healing. He teaches people how to breathe as the basis for healthy living.

"Minke de Vos is one of my favorite teachers in the Taoist Arts. The work she teaches is easy to grasp and, at the same time, one would never reach the limit of its potential. An unappreciated aspect of all healing is whether one has the vitality or simply the energy to heal. At that level, the Taoist work addresses that foundational aspect to connecting with life's source of energy and power." John Tjenos, Therapist

"People do not need experience with meditation or yoga. The Inner Smile will take them gently inside and the Chi Kung will move and loosen their bodyminds and open them to a new energy. I believe that when we cultivate our primal creative energy together we have the potential to create deeper connections with ourselves, our loved ones and our community."
