Stanley was born on June 17, 1954 in Phillipsburg, NJ to the late Leonard and Goldie (Meirfield) Cohen. He graduated from Warren Hills High School class of 1972. He went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Arts from Stockton College. He was an architectural model maker, and then stained glass artist for many years before finding his passion for Tai Chi/Qigong. Stanley was a Tai Chi/Qigong Instructor for over 15 years and taught at Warren County Nutrition sites, Senior Living Centers, Abilities of NWJ, and private classes. He was also certified to teach Tai Chi for arthritis. His gentle teaching methods helped many seniors and persons with disabilities build balance and strength through movement.
In addition to QiGong, he enjoyed creating art, painting and drawing, long walks, nature and photography.
