HEALER WITHIN FOUNDATION

Key focus areas of the foundation at this time include:

Advancing the Tai Chi Easy Dissemination Project along with the development and delivery of
new, original HWF educational offerings. M
Growing the network of Virtual and Community Practice Groups. These practice groups are
how we make self-care practices available to all!
Strategic Planning: 2021-2022
Building capacity for the organization, including infrastructure and staffing.
Outreach: Defining our audiences, developing messaging and telling our story.

While it is the case that much of The HWF’s methods to manage and reduce the cost of chronic health
challenges are delivered in the context of Mind-Body work, it is not true that Board members need be experts
in Tai Chi or Qigong. We are a diverse group, continually looking for a wide variety of people whose individual strands will help weave a beautiful, strong tapestry. Disease Prevention and Economic Wellness have never been so urgently related and intertwined.

Although Tai Chi and Qi Gong are Chinese and Daoist in origin, HWF is not affiliated with any organized religion or nationality. Its methods and delivery are compatible with any religious denomination, ethnicity, race, medical program or conditioning regimen.
