I have been practising Tai Chi and Qigong for many years (c15) and it has been the love of my life since I started. I came across Bruce's work in 2015 at a week long retreat in Oxford and I was blown away. I also attended his Ibiza Bagua retreat in 2016. This work is deeply transformational on many levels and once I started training with Bruce and some of his Energy Arts teachers (Aaron Green, Oct 2015) I entered a world of the real internal energetics of this practise. Formerly, I was a female multi times bodybuilding world champion where all the focus in training was on the external physique, the size, shape and definition of muscle. I believed then that I had the ultimate levels of fitness.I trained hard and ate right and yes I was strong and extremely fit. However, Bruce's work teaches me the importance of internal health, and unlearning that pure external focus has been a revelation for me and learning to go inside has been life changing. As well as training with person at Bruce's live events I have subscribed to the online support for the various forms. The quality of the online learning and supporting books is first class, I feel as if I am at a live class, which is critical for online learning.
Bruce's work is brilliant, and is positively enhancing my life physically, energy-wise, mentally, spiritually. I feel more peaceful, happy, balanced and have tools to practise, deepen and sustain my energy and resilience, I love Bruce's style of teaching, down to earth and very real. and I feel very privileged and blessed to have him as a teacher to guide me, along with this wonderful Energy Arts community.

I first met Bruce in 1992, as a 17 year old, I had all sorts of fantasies about becoming strong and learning to defend myself. Bruce taught me that through hard work and daily practice a world of incredible depth and peace can be found within the art of Ba Gua Zhang that goes far beyond the ability to knock out King Kong.
