Fee: $50 includes lunch
Discover the merging of chi and art, the intangible power of mixing the aura of objects with the soul of humanity. All of us have experienced the tranquility and mystical pleasure of being around art that seems to open the body to all kinds of possibilities. Combined with gentle Tao-ist exercises, this experience becomes a total immersion in the physical and metaphysical.
In this daylong workshop, John Meyer will weave the cultivation of chi—vital life force or energy—with exploration of symbols and philosophy found within Shantigar’s unique collection of Buddhist and Taoist art.
All are welcome for Chi Kung, from beginners to advanced students.
