Flexible workshop schedule:

10:50-11:45 Breath Empowerment Guided Meditation (this is NOT an appropriate exercise if: 1. You have a seizure disorder 2. You experience regular chest pain 3. You are pregnant    4. You have too much energy already!); followed by group sharing

12:00-1:00 Learning 9 Breath Method Technique with Tibetan Tummo breathing

1:00-1:10 Break

1:10-2:00 World Healing 9 Breath Healing Circle with sharing to close


This workshop is appropriate for and can help with: chronic pain, lethargy, apathy, depression, addictions related to food, alcohol, and drugs; breathing disorders such as asthma, anxiety, unresolved complex health issues, mental focus, spiritual activation, emotional/psychological traumas, immune system boost, FEELING LIKE BEING ON TOP OF THE WORLD! 

Breath Empowerment Meditation is a powerful breath work technique designed to open energy pathways or meridians to clear energy blockages. It is an EMPOWERING technique, NOT a relaxing technique and does require your focus and attention even though done laying on the floor.

Because this is a breathing workshop, masks will NOT be worn so if this makes you nervous, this is not the workshop for you. :(

Most of the workshop is done seated and laying on the floor so if you have a comfy chair you like, you’ll probably want to bring it as our cushioned metal chairs can be hard to sit in for some.

Please eat breakfast first and bring a very light snack for break only if required.  Doing high powered breath work on a completely empty or too full stomach is NOT a good idea.  All ages above 12 are welcome but children must be active participants NOT a distraction to others. 

One half-price “volunteer” position is available to someone willing to assist if required (may mean not fully participating in the Breath Empowerment)  and willing to take photos. Contact Lea if interested at BeachsideQi@gmail.com, (321)-759-3141.

Live Oracle Card Readings(Saturdays only)


Trisha Schmalhofer, BAM Founder, will be on site doing her Saturday Facebook Live Oracle Card Readings.  One of Trisha’s chi skills is to connect with your energy and help you remove energy blocks so you can flow easily in your life.  Her Facebook Live-streams attract views from around the globe seeking her innate skill set.  She’s available for private readings after the Livestream and through Zoom.  


Please note that YOU are responsible for your body and your own well-being.  It should go without saying but if you don’t know how to swim, please don’t go in the water! Being in the water is inherently more dangerous than being on land so RESPECT YOUR OWN LIMITS and don’t go if it’s not right for you. Please note that it is very possible to get hurt surfing or just being in the ocean so YOU are held liable for taking part in this event and for your own actions, not the hosts, sponsors or teachers of this event!  Also note that photos will be taken for future promotions at this event, so if you really hate being in photos, this may not be for you.  On the flip side, you could get some cool photos of yourself surfing at the beach with friends as I’ll be posting them on my social medial sites including Facebook.

For Questions:  if you have questions, comments, concerns or want to offer a surfboard to loan to others, feel free to reach out to Lea well before this event takes place.  I will be too busy to check my phone and messages the day of the event so contact me before!  

Let’s go surf some chi together!

What is Surfing Chi and Why: Are you stoked yet?!! I sure am!  If you haven’t read Surfing the Sea of Chi or don’t know why I’m doing this, here’s the super short version.  My whole life I was terrified to go in any body of water: pool, lake, river or ocean didn’t matter.  At 40 years old I decided to overcome this irrational fear by learning to surf. In the beginning, I thought that surfing for me was all about getting over my fear until I caught that first stand-up wave and actually rode it a little. From then on the power of surfing changed my life in ways I didn’t even know I needed it changed.  

  Now, I want to share my ocean joy with others who might have a similar fear.  I know there’s a lot of you out there because you’ve told me you have this fear too.  Thanks to the breath work I learned from my chi arts training, I was able to fully conquer my debilitating fear and now have a profound personal relationship with all things water-especially the ocean. The combination of learning to surf and chi arts taught me that when we move in the natural, cyclical flowing motions of surfing and tai chi, we heal ourselves naturally, profoundly and with no bad side-effects like with conventional Western treatments. Surfing and tai chi have numerous parallels so we can learn to ride waves of chi on land in our tai chi practices and we can learn to ride waves of energy in the ocean as they roll in. Both share ritual, breath work, bow stance rooting, moving fluidly like water in harmony with nature and so many more similarities. 

  I’m so convinced that surfing can heal us on many deep levels that I’m donating 1% of my book’s profits to the local Sebastian Inlet Surfrider Foundation that works to make surfing accessible to all and our community more ocean friendly.  If you’d like a copy of the book, let me know in advance and I will bring one and sign it for you. If you’ve read my book, I REALLY appreciate you leaving a review on Amazon, even if you didn’t like it!  Here’s the link to do that, just scroll down to “Leave Product Review “ on the left of the screen and click “write review.”  https://www.amazon.com/Surfing-Sea-Chi-Lea-Williamson/dp/1950906132
