"I studied Spring Forest Qigong for 9 years when I heard about becoming a certified healer. I knew this is what I needed to pursue to integrate all that I have been learning in the classes. I wasn't prepared for how profoundly rewarding it is to help others heal. I'm thrilled Spring Forest is launching such an in-depth certification program. Pursuing this certification is fulfilling a life-long desire to be a healing presence in the world. "

I work as a Medical Exercise Specialist and have found Spring Forest Qigong Healing helps my clients move through pain and the emotions associated with pain to heal themselves. Spring Forest Qigong has healed me on a level I never thought possible. SFQ’s certification is what I need to take my practice to the next level. Thank you!!!

"My journey with Spring Forest Qigong began at the very first workshop I attended with Master Lin two years ago. I walked into that workshop with a seriously injured knee and by lunch it was completely healed! Since then SFQ has enriched my life and my family and friend's lives in ways that extend beyond just physical healing. I am counting the days until the Certified Healer course so that I can further extend this practice both personally and professionally."

"Qigong healing helps, as Master Lin says, whether you believe it or not! But having the professional support of your parent organization can really be a boost to helping people feel more comfortable asking for help. This is perhaps the greatest gift of the new Healer Certification Program. I believe that it will broaden the reach of our work as Spring Forest Qigong Healers - and for this, I am very grateful and excited."

I am very excited for the Certified Healer Course to assist in not only advancing my skills, but also bringing more credibility to my practice. Thank you SFQ for continually adding on more programs to support me on my journey to becoming the best coach and healing guide I can be!

"I was in a lot of pain. I had a very serious neck injury. At that time I could barely move my neck. I had a severe disc injury. I couldn't turn my head at all to the side, not up or down, and I was in a lot of pain. It was impacting my life very, very severely. Doctors wanted to do a four level fusion on my neck. I started going to the [Spring Forest] Center ... and practicing every day. I never did end up having the surgery. Qigong really has been a miracle cure for me."

He has almost forty years of experience in the Human Service field and has worked in both urban and rural settings, and values the collaborative community-based model. 

He has also taught at the college level, and conducted numerous SFQ workshops and trainings in various community settings. Glenn continues to teach and to share his knowledge and wisdom of Spring Forest Qigong which is at the center of both his professional focus and his personal passion. 


Glenn is a member of the SFQ teaching team. He teaches Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Instructor Certification, and other workshops.

"Sharing Spring Forest Qigong with others is an experience that words cannot describe. Teaching this gift is my special way of giving back to the Universe for all of the beautiful things that Qigong has given me.

Practicing SFQ healing techniques helped with chronic migraines that medicine could not budge, and transformed debilitating lower back pain from degenerated discs. I’m no longer as vulnerable to injury and illness as I once was, and can move through health obstacles with grace.

Healing with SFQ also helped me prolong the life of my beloved dog. When he was expected to cross the rainbow bridge within a day to 2 weeks, Qigong allowed him to live another 3 years in happiness and health.

I feel truly blessed with the honour of teaching you how to fine-tune these abilities and share them with others. And as always, I’m forever grateful to Master Lin for all he’s done to bring with wisdom to us."

Master Katrina Tobey, L.P. has been a licensed psychologist since 1990 and a marriage and family therapist since 1998, with a devotion to being with persons experiencing grief and trauma.

She loves her connection with Spring Forest Qigong! She learned many healing ways over the years, so when the teachings of Spring Forest Qigong came into her life she knew this was the path she would follow. She is so grateful for Master Lin, SFQ teachings and our loving SFQ community! 


Katrina is a member of the SFQ teaching team. She teaches Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Instructor Certification, and other workshops.

"I found Spring Forest Qigong at a time when I needed a new life purpose.

Being a dancer and choreographer throughout my adult life, my main focus was always on my art. But as I grew older, I yearned to serve others on a deeper level. This path of rediscovery eventually led me to Spring Forest Qigong, where I found my calling to help others heal.

Now I’m proud to work with SFQ while teaching and performing a movement form called Doushin Butoh. Qigong is incorporated into this movement meditation practice, helping myself and my students feel truly free and in synch with our bodies.

Practicing Qigong healing has helped me realize that everything in the grand universe is connected. Master Lin’s idea of Qigong is simple and open-hearted, allowing anyone to become a healer. I’m proud to help carry out his vision and train others to master this beautiful gift. Spreading the power of SFQ is a true honour, and I can’t wait to meet the healers who will carry this mission further."

The doctor took an x-ray and told him, "You have arthritis in your shoulder, and you have no cartilage." The doctor didn't offer any hope, so Norman looked into alternatives. He heard about Chunyi Lin, ordered the Spring Forest Qigong home study courses, and started doing the exercises and healing techniques for his shoulder. "I was breathing into the shoulder and seeing the pain turn to air or smoke each night before I went to sleep, and it got better and better and better. I went back to the doctor months later and showed him the improvement. He said, ‘There is no way you should be able to do what you're doing. You should be in excruciating pain. I can't explain how you can do it, but whatever you're doing, don't stop.'" "I'm 76 years old. I have to thank qigong and Master Chunyi Lin. I'm so excited about what he has done for me. I hear a lot of stories about everybody else, but I know what he has done for me, and I am just thrilled."

Become a Certified Healer And Start Changing Lives With Spring Forest Qigong

Charlie was suffering from Parkinson's disease, lost his job and was sinking ever deeper into major depression when he first learned of Chunyi Lin and Spring Forest Qigong. Charlie says that's where his healing began. Through Chunyi and Spring Forest Charlie found new hope and his depression disappeared. His body began to heal and he opened his heart and mind to all the possibilities the universe holds. Then, he found a new doctor with a new plan. Charlie credits all three, Chunyi, Spring Forest and his new doctor for transforming his health and life.

Lymphoma - Stage 4 [excerpt] "I was very ill. The last two hospitalizations I didn't think I was going to live. I really felt I was going to leave this body and move on. [Chunyi's] imagery of the butterflies was the first time I could actually see the cancer cells leave my body. It was the perfect imagery for me. I sincerely feel the first time I heard that I let go my cancer cells. So much so that I had a Pet scan a week ago and all the cancer does not show. I know it's the qigong that's helped me, that's made the difference."

A Letter From Master Lin

Hello my friends,

When I first began practicing Qigong, I had intense back pain and depression that was taking over my life. By learning the secrets of directing Qi energy in the body, I was able to heal myself both mentally and physically. Everything in the universe is connected by this energy, and through it we can harness amazing potential for health and wellness.

Spring Forest Qigong was created to show you the amazing healing power that you were born with. Everyone has the ability to ease their pain and create a life of peace and joy with Qigong. I am overjoyed that you’ve come this far in your journey with me, and welcome you to take the next step now.

By becoming a certified healer with Spring Forest Qigong, you are doing more than proving your skill, mastery and dedication. You are choosing to share the wisdom of Qigong and extend my vision of creating a world without pain and suffering. For that, I am truly thankful. I welcome you to use this official title with Spring Forest Qigong to heal those in need, unlock the healing potential within others, and support yourself with financial abundance.

Thank you so much for your time, and have a wonderful day.

        With bountiful blessings,

         Master Chunyi Lin
