with Anand Parikshak

In this special evening workshop, visiting teacher Anand Parikshak will share teachings from the path of Daoism and Qigong. This path works with qi to cultivate lasting and meaningful wellbeing. In this evening of practice, participants will discover how to connect for self cultivation and healing through both moving and non-moving forms- discovering a path which heals the body, balances the emotions, and connects us with the essence of life.

The power of intention is immense
When one summones the qi, the universe reponds
Then, one accepts the fit with faith
Breathing in , breathing out
Qi flows in qi flows out
Blowing the dust from the human stove
Jolting the body from deep slumber
Qi engages the body with love
— Sheng Zhen Healing Stage 1
