HWF Practice Leader Fellowship Program

Established in 2020, the Fellowship Program seeks to identify and support remarkable individuals who cultivate practice groups with people and in traditionally underserved communities  to increase the availability of self-healing for all people.

The HWF Practice Leader Fellowship Program will:
Solicit applications from qualified individuals to lead Healer Within and/or Tai Chi Easy™ practice groups in locations which might otherwise not be able to support such groups dues to lack of access; Identify and highlight extraordinary individuals who are reaching marginalized communities and support their efforts towards greater impact; Showcase creative approaches from diverse members of our global community; Inspire others to take innovative and creative approaches to implementing and disseminating Tai Chi Easy™ and other evidence-based wellness practices.

HWF hopes to award two $1,000 fellowships annually. The funds are intended to provide teaching fees to practice group leaders who lead groups with populations who might not otherwise support such leaders by fees or donations.
