Since then Susan has studied with Dr. Carlos de Leon of Mexico and Lennart Aastrup of Spain as well as many others. These four primary teachers have eloquently provided background in Shamanistic, Healing and Meditation practices from numerous traditions around the world. Her main areas of study have been 7 Lotus Chi Kung as well as numerous other Chi Kung practices, Kashmir Shaivism, and Classical Tantra from India and Tibet.
