Qigong means “working with Qi"(commonly known as energy). It is a science of using the breath, body, mind, and sound to Achieve and Maintain Perfect Health.  


Its deep roots set it apart. Spring Forest Qigong Level One – Qi Activation is not your standard Qigong practice class. Rather, it is comprehensive training fully encompassing the ancient science of Qigong. This training grounds you firmly in that tradition while helping you understand the mystery and secrets of Qigong Healing.



  • Use and direct your Qi with Qigong.
  • What is Emptiness? How to prepare yourself to enter the Emptiness.
  • How to connect with and tap into a greater energy than your own.
  • Five Element Qigong and its healing wisdom as the Physical Movements.
  • Small Universe Meditation as the Internal Refinement.
  • Experience the powerful combination of Qi & Yi.
  • How to engage breath, sound, movements, and mind in Qigong practice.
  • The Yin and Yang of Qigong.
  • Qigong healing principles, such as Qi Blockages and how they form.
  • Plus, a Special Bonus… Sword Fingers, a Qigong healing technique to help yourself and others to heal.

Love Notes from Richard's Students


Easy to Apply into your daily life

"I've been taking Qigong classes from Richard Babboni for several months, once a week. Even with that little exposure, I soon was able to quickly start to understand and feel the Qi and energy channels during our practice sessions together. Rich's commentary, instructions and added explanations of why we were doing particular steps and actions opened my head up to the mental, emotional and energy of the practice. This last February I had an opportunity to find out how much I'd learned when I was in Colorado on a ski trip. The first night I started to get altitude sickness and went to bed early with a headache. I awoke hours later to a pounding headache, which seemed to be headed to one of my infrequent migraines. I lay in bed, wondering what I could do, and suddenly into my head came the words, "All of my energy channels are open, open, open." It was Rich's voice, in my head! Maybe I could use the energy flow and feelings from Qigong to help me here? Well, I pursued it, relaxing, thinking of the pain leaving my body like butterflies, all the energy channels opening. And you know what? My headache was GONE in less than 15 minutes - completely gone! "-Betsy S.


Engaging & Warm Community

"I’ve been participating in Rich Babboni’s Qigong classes for several months. It’s made such a difference in my life. I look forward to it as an opportunity to connect and re-center each week. Rich does a great job engaging the class and building a warm, positive sense of community amongst the participants. He’s a wonderful teacher!"

-Frank C.

Deep Understanding & Inspiring

"I have thoroughly enjoyed Richard’s Babboni’s weekly Qigong classes. He clearly exhibits the movements; his narration is clear and inspiring; and he has a wonderful “aura” – here’s a teacher who radiates warmth and understanding. Over the years, I’ve taken a smattering of Mindfulness, Yoga, and other eastern-based practices, and Richard is absolutely one of the best teachers I’ve had, a real gift. As he enlarges his teaching practice, I see him connecting with and improving the lives of a large number of people."

-John F.

Easy to applicable into your daily life

After having a qigong session with Richard, I feel more grounded and have a greater sense of well-being. My aches and pains go away and I feel very light hearted.

-Anna F.
