Art, writing, tai chi and chi kung, these forms of contemplation and awakening practices have inspired Wasentha throughout her life’s journey. Although art has been a part of her life from childhood, most recent, mosaics became a prominent medium inspired by her travels to Spain, Greece, and Italy. Writing – poetry, journals, and short stories – became Wasentha’s companion where the spoken word fell short of expressing feelings and process. A practitioner since 1968, tai chi and chi kung have been vehicles for intuitive growth, transformation, and integration.
In her young adulthood, Wasentha resided in the communities which immersed her in the traditional practices of Buddhism, Taoism, and Shamanic disciplines. She is the founder, director, and master instructor of the Peaceful Dragon School, Ann Arbor, MI. In addition, she has a master’s degree in Transpersonal Studies.
Wasentha shares her in-depth knowledge of these spiritual, energy, creative and physical practices through classes and workshops to help nurture the human spirit, promote health, and foster respect for the balance between nature and human life.
