Currently, Kai is finishing his studies at Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA. A few months out of the year, he facilitates 4-day events for Supreme Science Qigong (click on the link to find an event near you). He is also setting up a Taoist Retreat Center in the picturesque LiJiang Province in China, where he will lead experiential retreats with a focus on Qigong, Taoist Sciences, Food Healing and a rare opportunity to connect, live and learn from the locals in the region.Gray Estrada is presently pursuing his master’s degree in Chinese Medicine and uses principles of Feng Shui in his environments because, he says, “Environment is as central to good health as is diet, exercise, and meditation.” Principles of Feng Shui are grounded in Chinese Medicine, i.e., the five element cycles and their inherent creation/destruction patterning. It is Gray’s belief that environment should support and encourage inner wellness and conversely, inner wellness contributes to a healthy environment. He points out, “In all of life, there is undeniable confluence in disciplines.”
Gray has a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine art from California State University at Chico and worked as an assistant/apprentice for world-renowned artist and sculptor, Richard MacDonald in Monterey before entering Five Branches University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Gray is very competent with form, design and color and has taken his skills in creating two and three-dimensional art forms into his home and office decor. Gray also received his black belt in Kuk Sul Do, in accordance with Yang’s Kuk Sul Do Federation, under Grand Master Choon Shik Yang, which has given him a very good understanding of grace and movement. He has quite successfully created interior spaces where movement and grace are palpable.
While self-taught in Feng Shui, Gray’s pursuit of mastering the principles of Feng Shui is ongoing and by his own description, “relentless”. He has seen profound results in his own life by integrating principles of Feng Shui into his environmental décor. He is not a certified practitioner, but his foundation in the principles of Feng Shui is strong. This, coupled with a background in art and Chinese Medicine, gives him great abilities in determining how to shape a space to make it aesthetically attractive and to structure it in such a way that supports health, inner peace, and career success.As a lifelong enthusiast of masterful movement, Kyle Shinners was an All-American
