Amelia Barili Ph.D
Testimonies from Self-Healing workshops and on going classes:

"This class has been revitalizing and renewing. I am off caffeine, I am sleeping through the night, I no longer drag myself through my day. But the biggest benefit probably is that I feel more joy in my life and I feel more present in whatever I am doing. I am very grateful for this." -- Paula McGuire

"I began Qigong just a couple of months ago with Amelia Barili at the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery. I came into Amelia's class at an extremely stressful time in my life.  After the first class I felt as if a weight had been lifted from my body. As each class progressed I felt calmer and more at peace with myself.  My strength and flexibility improved along with an enhanced sense of well being. Amelia is a remarkable teacher. Her directions and demonstrations, intermingled with serenity, humor, and focus, create an open atmosphere of personal learning and growth."-- Peggy Harding

"The benefits of studying Wild Goose Qigong with Amelia Barili are threefold. First there are the physical benefits of the warm-ups, the stretches and the practices of Qigong itself, which affect the body from the top of the head to the sole of the feet. Then there is the knowledge of Chinese Medicine about focusing on the energy channels or meridians and learning skills to feel and revitalize specific organs and parts of the body. Finally, there is the pleasure of learning with Amelia. She is a very inspired and inspiring teacher."-- Suzy Cortes

"Amelia is truly an exceptional teacher of Yoga and Qigong, and a genuine gift to her students. With much expertise and patience, she guides her students, through the graceful movements of the exercise, while teaching an outer attention to the form and an inner intention to the movement. Practicing in this way becomes truly transformational."-- Phil Waltz

"Amelia's way of explaining the deeper meaning of each practice and her inner guidance has forever changed the way I used to practice Qigong."
