Feeling connected to Qigong, Cherie decided to pursue her teaching certificate with Lee Holden, Qigong master in Santa Cruz. Cherie wanted to explore more healing art forms and, found UpBeat Drum Circle with Christine Stevens’s facilitator workshop. The workshop hit a note with Cherie, and she knew that incorporating Qigong and Drumming along with Art therapy would help not just her but also her students and anyone who needed to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction.
