About Amanda Stiler:

Cert. Energy Healing Arts Practitioner, Qigong and Jin Shin Jyutsu.

From New Zealand, Amanda’s natural talent was discovered through dance and ballet at age six. Out of a deeper calling for a happier, more integrated life, Amanda left in 2006 for retreats in India and other meditation centers around the world. In conjunction with her love of dance & meditation, Amanda’s journey led to studying Qigong. By 2009, inspired by the joy and simplicity discovered in it, she began sharing it during retreats at Springwater Center, eventually leading her to gain certification through Medical Qigong master Dr. Bingkun Hu in California, in 2016. 

Please join us!

Cost: $147


Cost with overnight in the Yurt: $182


“Hey Heather, thanks again for the retreat yesterday!! You are absolutely in your calling. You are talented, sweet, have a spirited energy, and have a superb ability in “running the show.”

The retreat was so well run. I am impressed with your gentle guidance and ability to make it seem like a cake-walk. I have been in many professional positions in my lifetime… and have had to run many programs, workshops, and retreats and think I am pretty good at it.

I usually find fault (unexpressed) with most workshops/retreats. Yesterday… I could see NOTHING that I would change. It was absolutely right on… everything!”
