Radiant Lotus Qigong Instructor

 

My name is Joyce Doeve.

From an early age I had a fascination for Indian culture, but also for Eastern martial arts.

During a trip through the Amazon region in South America, I came into contact with an Indian tribe that lived there. I lived with these special people for a week. What really touched me was their connection with and respect for nature. They talked about nature’s energy and how it strengthened your own life energy. For example, I was able to experience a sweat lodge session and a shamanic ritual. The Indians showed me which plants and herbs had medicinal properties and how important it is to deal well with Mother Nature. The Indians soon nicknamed me “flower”.

Back in the Netherlands, I started searching for an Eastern movement theory that was linked to balancing your own life energy. That’s how I found Qigong. I discovered that this ancient movement theory came from dancing shamanic rituals. In addition, Qigong is a combination of movement, breathing and mindfulness to improve your health. With Qigong you work with your own Chi (life energy)

I started with Qigong in 2016 and followed a study with Ron Wiggers from the Tao Chi Qigong Academy in The Hague. In 2019 I obtained my certificate for instructor Qigong. Begin 2023 i obtained my selfmastery certificate from the Shaolin Tempel Europe in Germany Otterberg.   Now I am a student of Daisy Lee and obtained my certificate for the Radiant Lotus Qigong system for women with her in 2024.

The first time I practiced Qigong, I immediately felt the energy flowing through my body. This was what I was always looking for and now I can share my knowledge of this beautiful ancient Chinese movement theory with others.

Since I practice Qigong daily, I feel more vital and energetic. I’m more balanced. More creative, experience less stress, feel more calm in my head and sleep better. Qigong has become a “way of living” for me.
