Having had experience in several related arts, it was approximately 10 years ago that Richie began the serious study of Tai Chi and Qigong.
After several years with different teachers, Richie had in his words, "...found the teacher for whom I had been searching ...I had the great good fortune to meet Master William Ting." Since that time Richie has been a diligent student of Master Ting's.
Since 2003 Richie has been in charge of the Tai Chi/qigong program at Deerfield Spa where his responsibilites have included teaching all of the classes, as well as, a weekly lecture on the subject. He is currently conducting classes at the East Stroudsburg University, Totts Gap Art Institute, and the Church of the Mountain , in Delaware Water Gap of Pennsylvania, with other classes to be announced soon.
