Meet Lee Holden

Lee Holden started his Qi Gong journey after suffering an injury when playing soccer for the University of Berkeley, California. Wanting to explore the alternative of ancient Eastern practices to help him heal, nothing could have prepared Lee for the journey of self-discovery he was to embark on.

After being so impressed by how Qi Gong had accelerated his recovery, his focus in life had shifted, and he travelled across Asia to immerse himself in various ancient practices that offered him more meaning than his sporting career had.

Returning to America a changed man, he started off small, teaching the art of Qi Gong to his close friends and family. Eventually, Lee was approached by PBS who asked him to make a short Qi Gong show for modern audiences. The show was a huge success.

Fast forward a few years and Lee is not only an international instructor of Qi Gong, Meditation and Tai Chi and a household name on US and Canadian TV, but also runs his own wellness center out of Santa Cruz, California.

Proudly published by Mindvalley.

Mindvalley spreads game-changing ideas in fields like entrepreneurship, spiritual growth, parenting and more. The kind of ideas that mainstream education often ignores.

We scour the globe for authors, trainers and visionaries with transformational messages, which we then take mainstream through our optimized marketing processes. Our mission is to touch 1 billion lives by being a new kind of publishing company: one that merges experimental technology, engaging artistry and conscious marketing to build passionate tribes around the causes we support.

Marketing is Mindvalley’s first passion, our second is work culture.

We’re constantly experimenting with new ways of growing, inspiring and delighting our people. For instance what happens when employees are given an hour a day to spend on their personal growth? What if company meetings are banned and replaced with “Awesomeness Reports“? How do people react to random treats throughout the week, like massages in our Meditation Room and inspiring poems on their desks?
