What is Qigong

I have been on a long journey to were I am today. Life to me is a fun exciting experience that is ever unfolding. As a earth conscience organic farmer

the gifts that have been afforded me are too numerous to count and one of them is my practice a mix of cardio/stretch/strength training and medical Qigong.

What is QiGong?

Qi (chee): Energy! Life forcefound flowing through all
living things.
Gong(gung): Cultivation,
Practice or work, skill
acquired through
practice or discipline.

Qigong: skill in working with
Qi: Healing or working with
Life energy


According to ancient Qigong masters,
Qi permeates every square inch of the
Universe. Unlike oxygen, Qi is
everywhere, and it’s nature is elusive. time
Quantum physics has been verifying this energy
calling it the “Unified Field of Energy”
that is all encompassing with the LHC. This field of
energy animates all of existence.
Everyone is receiving energy from the
earth and sky consciously or unconsciously at all times.
Qigong gracefully increases the amount
we receive by using our intentional mind
(meditation), our breathing, and our
physical movements.

Qigong in everyday life is the energy we share with each other everyday from a physical standpoint,  energetic or energy in motion ‘the emotions’ and the ideas that we share with each other. Everyone has been doing qigong all of their lives this energy cultivation is what allows us to thrive. In this practice we learn ways to observe, interact and feel this energy and it transforms our lives.

I invite you to take a journey with us as we explore the world of QI.

D’Jedi Activation

Awakening to Self-Mastery

This Summer August 22nd – 24th See details here

What is a DJedi?

In the legends from ancient Egypt, it is said that a group of awakened beings incarnated on planet Earth to help assist in the transformation of consciousness at critical moments in history. They were referred to as, the “DJedh” meaning “Pillar.” The “DJedi” are the carriers of the Pillars of Light, who activate the collective consciousness of humanity through intention, integrity and compassion.

We are living at such times. We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for. As the Earth goes through this shift into greater awareness many people will feel lost as we are now walking into uncharted territory. Many people will feel called to discover the deeper aspects of Self in order to live out their purpose here on Earth. People from all walks of life are gathering to discover their greatest gifts and heal their deepest shadows, as well as those of humanity – For everyone, all at once

The DJedi Activation is a training to unlock the codes of Self-mastery within. We travel to power spots across the country to activate the land through our hearts and in collective practice. We utilize the ancient spiritual practices of qigong, yoga, pranayama and the power of the collective group to regain full consciousness, to re-boot, de-code and “Wake Up” inside the matrix, with full remembrance of who we are, and why we’re here. You will be given the opportunities, tools, practices and framework to step confidently into the direction of your purpose. This is not your average training, it will be an opportunity to explore self mastery with new eyes.

Who is “MattBrightSide”

I’m Matt bright side, a renaissance man that has a vision of a conscience world that is full ofIMG_6833 love and beauty. The founder of the micro-green farm and visionary for the community he brings qi-gong, farming and art together in a empowered way to help change the lives of so many.

My life has been changed by Qigong in so many ways.

When I was young I had a series of accidents that left me in a wheelchair for about 2 years. As I was going through physical therapy I was introduced to Qigong and that is one of the reasons I can, not only walk, but run, dance, and so much more.This is just one of the life altering experiences with Qigong. I do subscribe to the powerful healing that comes when you embrace a practice of Qigong and foods that heal. In 1987 I was diagnosed with malaria and had many years of suffering being sick often. In 2011 I went to a Qi Revolution which got me re-excited about Qigong. I re-started my practice with the healing foods of micro-greens and the food healing information that I gained from Jeff Primack. In a very short time I was full of energy and have not had a bout of malaria since. I feel I have reversed this deadly infliction and I am now thriving.

I have been an artist from very young and joined the renaissance fair circuit for many years learning many skills and apprenticing with many master craftsmen. When I met my life partner Mary Marlatt in the Renaissance fairs we found the meaning of togetherness and support. When we left the fairs and came back to the world of corporate and jobs I became a network engineer I continued in that work for many years. When we started growing and eating the micro-greens a few years IMG_2574=smallago, my health started to revive I took a good look at what I was doing and longed for something more. Well when we came back from our certification of qigong instructors the company I was working for went under and I decided to be a farmer. I have not looked back. Sharing the breath practice, qigong, food healing, and energy practices have been the most rewarding time for me. I know that my life is now and forever changed, and will continue to help heal and empower my wondrous family who I am meeting every day. In 2011 I met a fabulous mentor by the name of Andrew Morrissey. Through our interaction and training I have the privilege of being a valuable part of the Universal Heroes Non-profit organization. This experience is taking me and the ones that join me to our next level. As a qigong IMG_7105researcher and practitioner I have stretched my knowledge and teach a deep and powerful healing form through the philosophiesof the Nowist. David Beaudry is one of my masters of qigong sharing his knowledge and experience as a cross trainer, qigong master and all around Light warrior and D’Jedi Master. Now I do a trek yearly to a magical place in Thailand. Pai is a part of middle earth that the energies and space that is created there allow and help us to be the best “Me” we can every be. I continue to teach and learn at a speed that is wonderful, I invite you to learn with me.
