What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

Session 1: Gregory the Terrible Eater

We will be reading "Gregory the Terrible Eater" by Mitchell Sharmat. Gregory is a goat kid whose parents think he is a picky eater.This funny story will lead us to a discussion about why our bodies need iron, how we can get it from our food and fortified cereals.

We will follow this with a few experiments and make a goat puppet complete with “good goat foods” for it to eat.

What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

Instructor: Jeff Cote. Cost: $5.00 per session. Just drop in.

The Delvena Theater Presents:

In Love with Mr. Dickens

A live theater performance! 

Picture

Charles Dickens wrote some of the most powerful, imaginative and adored novels of all time. His insight into the human condition is matched only by William Shakespeare's.  In Love with Mr. Dickens takes 2 actresses and the audience on a journey into the life and loves of the great man.  Through the use of monologues and scenes the actresses will embody the ridiculous, the romantic and the frightening characters that Mr. Dickens so richly created.  They will also explore with the audience some of Mr. Dickens romantic adventures, and how he loved with every 'chink and crevice' of his being.  It's a bit of scandal, and a whole lot of worship for the great man, who also loved Boston profoundly! 

This performance is paid for by a grant from the local cultural council and the TPL Endowmnet.

What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

Moon Signs: 

Using phases of the moon for smart decisions in love, work, and family life

The moon is full -- things are a little crazy. The moon is new -- everyone is a little lost. When is the best time to clean? To throw a party? To quit a bad habit -- and not go back? Every culture developed guidelines for activities, many based on lunar transits. The phases of the moon govern the height and intensity of tides, and are helpful for taking many actions in life. This workshop simplifies the pattern and rhythms of the moon so that every attendee has a "plan of action" for the next several weeks.

What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

Instructor: Jeff Cote. Cost: $5.00 per session. Just drop in.
