DESCRIPTION

How do we use works of art to connect with ourselves and others? Explore this idea through movement, meditation, stories and, of course, art. Each session offers an opportunity to delve deeper into practices that balance energy, align your body, and go inward to just chill.

The reflective art works in North Court become the backdrop of this afternoon of qi gong practice. Qi gong is a practice of movement, breath alignment, and body awareness for exercise, wellness and meditation. Considered a way of cultivating and balancing qi, or life energy, the practice has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy.

Please join Liping Zhu, L.Ac, for an introductory workshop on the principles and exercises of Qigong towards one's health. Ms. Zhu, a former gold medalist at the International Martial Arts Tournament, will also provide a brief demonstration and answer questions on this fascinating topic. Each session is 50 minutes long. Classes begin at 12:00, 1:00 and 2:00 pm.

Space is limited. Registration required the day of the workshop. Sign up for sessions in North Court on June 3.

Part of the Target First Free Sunday program
