About the Author

Lea Williamson is a longboard surfer, chi arts enthusiast, clinical massage therapist, Reiki Master, Space Coast native, traveler, writer, consciousness explorer and health patriot. Lea grew up in Titusville, Florida and began studying the slow moving Chinese energy medicine called tai chi chuan in the early 1990s and never stopped her daily practice. Even though she grew up near the Atlantic coast of Florida, fear kept her from learning to surf until she was 40 years old. 

  After wandering the country in a painted up hippie love truck, she soaked in the desert heat of New Mexico for a spell before retuning to her native shores. She now has well over 10 years of longboard surfing experience, mostly along Brevard County beaches. Lea has had a daily qigong practice for over 25 years and is certified to teach several styles of qigong and tai chi. In 2016, she earned the esteemed title of ShiFu (expert) of qigong from martial arts Grandmaster Jeffrey B. Cook. 

  Having written newsletters, and blogs, and garnering international praise for her self-produced online tai chi videos (through YouTube channel Beachside Qigong and Tai Chi), she teaches workshops and classes in community, corporate, and private venues. Students appreciate her award-winning speaking and presentation skills. Additionally, her lifelong passion for and knowledge of health and healing are evidenced by a career as a professional clinical massage therapist and Reiki master that began in New Mexico in 2003.
