Jacqueline is a research staff member in the SickKids Research Institute as well as a member of The Mindfulness Project Team at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). She is an instructor of Qigong (pronounced “chi-gong”). She grew up in a Qigong school within the lineage of Master Weizhao Wu and Master Teresa, and has shared this peaceful traditional Chinese healing art in symposiums and conferences.

She has been sharing Qigong to the public (virtually) and to Sickkids staff for over 2 years and is an active participant in Wellness programming provided by Occupational Health at SickKids. Qigong is a gentle and serene form of moving meditation, a kind of mindfulness in motion that integrates one’s body and mind. She is dedicated to having a diverse and inclusive space.

Jacqueline is combining her passion for integrated heart-body wellness by currently studying for a Masters of Pastoral Studies (MPS) at The University of Toronto in spiritual care and psychotherapy (inter-faith/Buddhist foci). She has a BA in Psychology and a Masters of Early Childhood Studies. She’s also the daughter of Master Teresa, founder of Pureland Qi Gong International School.
