Social Worker, Massage Therapist, Reiki II Practitioner, Qigong Practitioner, Author, and Certified in I.E.T. (Integrated Energy Therapy)
Qigong is not just a daily practice. It is a way of living and is intended to be integrated into all that we do. I had the pleasure of getting to know Michelle Britto after the big Supreme Science Qigong Conference in Orlando (May, 2013). We quickly became Qi-sistahs as we realized that we were truly kindred spirits. We are now each other’s accountability partners for Qigong Strength Training and in our dedication to work that serves the highest good of all. I hope her Black Qi Profile will inspire you to bring forth and manifest your highest potential.
When did you first start practicing Qigong?
I started doing Qigong while I was in massage school 8 years ago.
How do you incorporate Qigong into your everyday life and work?
I’m a social worker who has private clients and I work in the schools with special education. I practice Qigong daily and with my special education students in my work and in the morning in my home.
Michael Beckwith is my daughter’s godfather and we talk often about changes I’m trying to incorporate into the schools. If you’ve ever read any of his books, it’s all about feeling and knowing energy. It’s how I came to the realization that our challenged children have some short circuits based on circumstances. I have actually gotten to see some of them almost seizure when they do exercises. It’s “QIGONG” in the raw with our children of color for urban neighborhoods.
What inspired you to become a writer?
What made me want to write is working in the schools and seeing that much of the material wasn’t reaching our children.
Tell us about your new children’s book
The name of my book is “What’s Below Your Tummy Tum?” I wrote it to empower and protect children from “secret” abuse. Interestingly enough my next book in the series is called “My Breath.” It’s to teach children to self regulate and feel their own energy, through their Breath.
What do you hope your readers will learn from reading your book?
What I want parents and children to take away from this book is a sense of “Empowerment.”
