Nadia Linda Chiu Hole ’75

At Princeton, Chiu Hole went from freshman honors Physics to a pre-med major in East Asian Studies.    On campus, she served as Princeton’s first Barefoot Doctor, first female chapel “watchman,” first student “sex ed” counselor to go on live radio, and rowed briefly on Princeton’s first women’s crew team. Post Princeton, she “did time” at San Quentin State Prison as a physician, and became president of the California State Homeopathic Medical Society. She discovered Qigong during a particularly challenging time of her life, as a then newly-single mom of four. She went on to become a contributing author for American Academy of Cardiology, Neurology, & Pain Management, complementary medicine textbooks, and to two lay bestsellers of chapters on QiGong & needle-less Qi KHT acupuncture; columnist for Yang-Sheng Nurturing  Life emag; and consulting editor for the landmark textbook Chinese Medical QiGong. She shares her love of QiGong nationally and internationally for a wide range of communities and professional organizations, including the World Congress on QiGong, and the NeiDao.org International Symposium on QiGong. She currently lives with her world record holder surfer husband, part time in Hawaii and on the West Coast. Besides dolphins, dancing, family, healing in the way of love, prayers for peace, the practical Qi of “miracles” and “Surf Happy Qi,” her passion is to empower others, in remembrance, to remember who they truly are, and change lives, one breath at a time.
