Francesco Garripoli

Francesco lived in China for two years during an intensive study of martial arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities, including acupuncture and Qigong. While there he produced and directed Wuji Productions’ one-hour documentary titled “Qigong – Ancient Chinese Healing for the 21st Century,” which is currently airing nationwide across the PBS Television network.

Francesco (under his pen name Garri) is the author of two books, Tao of the Ride and Qigong – Essence of the Healing Dance, both published by HCI Publishing (the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” people.)

Francesco and his partner Daisy Lee perform in a series of Qigong instructional tapes shot in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. He lectures and teaches extensively on the subject of Qigong, focusing on its complementary benefits to Western Medicine.

Francesco is currently developing a new e-Health venture helping to introduce stress-reduction techniques like Qigong to the corporate and hospital environment. These programs will aid in peak performance, energy focusing, and conflict resolution techniques for businesspeople. One project in this new venture will be a new 13-part series for PBS on wellness.
