Wasentha Young has been studying transpersonal practices used to nurture the human spirit, keep us healthy, and respect the balance between nature and human life since 1968. As a young adult she managed NYC largest herb and spice store where she was exposed to the healing power of herbs and learned from grass root healers of all cultures. Simultaneously, Wasentha studied tai chi, chi kung, different styles of meditation, and shiatsu. Creatively she spent time painting and writing poetry and short stories.
Leaving NYC in the mid seventies, Wasentha lived in Boulder,CO where she studied with and became a part of Trungpa Rinpoche’s Buddhist Naropa Institute community. As well, she would hold audience with Tao Te Ching translator, Gia-fu Feng, and Sufi Master Reshad Field. From there, Wasentha lived in the Southwest where she witnessed and participated in Native American Navajo and Hopi traditions and rituals. With a passion to understand Traditional Chinese Medical theory, she lived in Berkeley and studied at the Acupressure Institute.
Today Wasentha is the master instructor and owner of the Peaceful Dragon School in Ann Arbor, where she teaches tai chi, chi kung, and meditation. Frequently visited by UM medical students she also lectures nationally on the benefits of tai chi, chi kung, and meditation as it relates to the human emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. Creatively, Wasentha continues to write and has found the medium of mosaics.
Emotion by Wasentha Young
Like the wind,
Like a cloud,
Like a flower,
It blossoms and fades.
The voice of emotion.
