I met Robbie Foster when I lived in New Mexico. Whenever there was an event that was connected to health, healing or spirituality, he would be there. Robbie was the first practitioner to certify me to teach Qigong. I’ll never forget my oral exam with Robbie. In his lively Trinidadian accent, he would scold me every moment that I moved an inch out of place in my form and he would say “with long skinny crooked fingers like yours, you had better get your form right because when you teach, everyone can see everything.” I corrected him and said that only my middle finger was crooked and then he would say “And those long lanky arms of yours will exaggerate errors in your form … ” So I yielded to his instruction, and he was right of course. He made me precise in my form, and to this day, I continually refine my form to so that I can do the best possible job in representing and teaching Qigong.”
I passed his test and scolded him for his bad bedside manner, but only in teasing. Robbie is so fun to be around and he really gets the concept of Black Qi Activation. I’m so honored to have him as one of our distinguished Black Qi Activation Elders.
What inspired you to first start practicing Qigong?
I hired a massage therapist to do a conference with the American Holistic Medical Assocation and she blew me away doing Qigong instead of eating lunch and had the most energy I had ever seen a hungry person manifest.
How do you incorporate Qigong into your everyday life?
I do some form of Qigong everyday. It can be just walking and gathering Qi or in Meditation. After a while it becomes second nature. Qigong brings the Focus and Awareness to the Mindfulness needed to be fully present and effective. Qigong incorporates me.
Tell us about a project you are working on or a project that you are really passionate about.
I Love what [Black Qi Activation] is about because I would like to see more people of Color become more Aware and Present in the Moment. It is Imperative that we Harness the Abundant Energy that is Everyone’s God-given Birthright. I remember my teacher saying that, “they say it, (Qigong) started in China but we don’t know for sure.” It’s time that we regain all that was lost with the Separation Consciousness that has been bestowed upon Us. We came from Greatness and it has to be Realized to be Restored.
What do you hope will emerge from the expression of your work?
That people will know they are Powerful Beings of Love and Light on this journey in Human form.
What is the best way for people to contact you?
What question would you ask of people who are looking to get on the path and how would you help to guide that path?
Are you ready to take control of your Life?
Then start a Mindful practice that incorporates Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Healthy Eating habits and Always doing the Right Thing. If you are Kind rather than Right you will Always be Right.
