History of Going Beyond
History of Going Beyond:
Lisa-Francesca Lewak started her global career as a teacher in China in the early 80’s. She was there the year when Deng Xiao Ping implemented his open economic policy. China was on the move.
Lisa’s dream had always been to travel. She worked & lived five years in Asia. Spending several years in Hong Kong during which time another crucial event happened when the British decided to give Hong Kong back to China. Hong Kong’s history was about to change over night. At the end of the 80’s, Lisa lived & worked in Japan immersing herself in their ancient traditions, culture & way of life.
Prior to Asia, at the end of the 70’s & beginning of the 80’s Lisa’s focus had been on the Middle East. Lisa lived, studied & worked there for a couple of years, where she learned about the complex, as well as, diverse political, social, economical & religious reality in that part of the world.
1990 found Lisa in South America. After having studied Spanish in Spain she decided to continue her global trotting & head south. Here Lisa perfected her Spanish whilst discovering the ancient cultures & peoples of Peru, Columbia, Ecuador & Bolivia.
The beginning of the 90’s Lisa headed back to Europe, to the South of France this time to learn & perfect the French language. Lisa lived, studied & worked for eight years in Toulouse (la ville rose – the pink city) lecturing & teaching at the University of Mirail, at Air Bus aeronautics, the National Civil Aviation University & Toulouse Chamber of Commerce.
Lisa is a modern day nomad. So, by the end of the 90’ she had moved to Montreal, Canada in North America. To culminate the first part of her life she studied International business & trade at the French Business school, HEC.
So, began the next part of her global career.
As part of her travels she had seen how people from different cultures & backgrounds lived in various health – illness paradigms & the solutions they used, many of which had been around for generations & generations. Living these experiences were motivators for her to return to study in the field of health & wellness.
By the year 2000 she entered into five years of intensive study and training at a natural health & alternative medicine school where she learned about body, energy & vibrational modalities of healing and therapy.
In 2002, 15 years ago, Lisa began her apprenticeship and training in Shamanism and Native American practices. At the same time she started to practice and train in Qi Gong and Traditional Chinese Medicine..
