Chi-Gong Class with Gwen Valencis

Chi-Gong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. It is meditation-in-motion, clearing the body of energy blocks resulting in physical, mental, and emotional relief. 

A practitioner since 2007, Gwen Valencis became certified to teach QiGong in 2017 by world renowned QiGong Master, Dr. Aihan Kuhn of Sarasota, FL.  Gwen has grown to honor and respect real health: a presence of flowing energy and an absence of stress, aches, pain, and disease. Qigong is most popular among middle-aged to older-aged adults. Many practitioners find that it helps them to regain flexibility, strength, and calmness into older age. It might also help increase recovery time from illnesses or traumatic events.

No equipment or mats required, please wear comfortable clothing. Seated modifications are available for comfort.

Musical Artist: Peter Biedermann

Peter Biedermann is a solo instrumental guitarist based in Green Valley, AZ that has been composing and performing for over 40 years and will be appearing for the first time in the Southington Public Library. The common thread throughout his musical background is crossing the boundaries of music genres. This hybrid, contemporary style melds elements of American and European folk with jazz and blues shadings; underpinned by subtle ambient electronics. Peter began focusing on performing original solo instrumentals beginning in 2000. The music is now being presented in intimate settings such as libraries, art galleries, house concerts and churches.

He will be focusing on pieces from his latest recording, 'Tales From The Desert' on a variety of guitars in unique tunings. The program encourages questions from the audience and will also include some of the history and evolution of steel string guitar playing over the last fifty plus years. Fans of fellow guitarists such as Michael Hedges, the British school (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Davy Graham), Alex de Grassi and Pierre Bensusan will enjoy this music.

Chi-Gong Class with Gwen Valencis

Chi-Gong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. It is meditation-in-motion, clearing the body of energy blocks resulting in physical, mental, and emotional relief. 

A practitioner since 2007, Gwen Valencis became certified to teach QiGong in 2017 by world renowned QiGong Master, Dr. Aihan Kuhn of Sarasota, FL.  Gwen has grown to honor and respect real health: a presence of flowing energy and an absence of stress, aches, pain, and disease. Qigong is most popular among middle-aged to older-aged adults. Many practitioners find that it helps them to regain flexibility, strength, and calmness into older age. It might also help increase recovery time from illnesses or traumatic events.

No equipment or mats required, please wear comfortable clothing. Seated modifications are available for comfort.

Fall Book Discussion Series- Part 2

Popular presenter Carole Shmurak returns for the second part of the fall mystery discussion series. Schemers by Bill Pronzini will be the book discussed during this part of the series.

The state of California looms large in the history of mysteries. Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, set in San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, set in Los Angeles, essentially began the “hard–boiled” tradition of American mysteries. Last spring, we looked at The City of Angels; now it’s time for mysteries in The City by the Bay. But whatever you do, don’t call it “Frisco”!   

A locked room mystery that goes from stolen books to stolen lives and the hunt for an acid-wielding stalker give the Nameless Detective and his partner Jake more than enough work to earn their fees.  Like his wife Marcia Muller, Bill Pronzini has been chronicling San Francisco crimes since the early 1970s and has been named a Grand Master of the mystery field.  

The last book that will be discussed during this three part series is:

November 13th: (2007) The Spellman Files-Lisa Lutz

Chi-Gong Class with Gwen Valencis

Chi-Gong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. It is meditation-in-motion, clearing the body of energy blocks resulting in physical, mental, and emotional relief. 

A practitioner since 2007, Gwen Valencis became certified to teach QiGong in 2017 by world renowned QiGong Master, Dr. Aihan Kuhn of Sarasota, FL.  Gwen has grown to honor and respect real health: a presence of flowing energy and an absence of stress, aches, pain, and disease. Qigong is most popular among middle-aged to older-aged adults. Many practitioners find that it helps them to regain flexibility, strength, and calmness into older age. It might also help increase recovery time from illnesses or traumatic events.

No equipment or mats required, please wear comfortable clothing. Seated modifications are available for comfort.

A practitioner since 2007, Gwen Valencis became certified to teach QiGong in 2017 by world renowned QiGong Master, Dr. Aihan Kuhn of Sarasota, FL.  Gwen has grown to honor and respect real health: a presence of flowing energy and an absence of stress, aches, pain, and disease. Qigong is most popular among middle-aged to older-aged adults. Many practitioners find that it helps them to regain flexibility, strength, and calmness into older age. It might also help increase recovery time from illnesses or traumatic events.

Chi-Gong Class with Gwen Valencis

Chi-Gong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. It is meditation-in-motion, clearing the body of energy blocks resulting in physical, mental, and emotional relief. 

A practitioner since 2007, Gwen Valencis became certified to teach QiGong in 2017 by world renowned QiGong Master, Dr. Aihan Kuhn of Sarasota, FL.  Gwen has grown to honor and respect real health: a presence of flowing energy and an absence of stress, aches, pain, and disease. Qigong is most popular among middle-aged to older-aged adults. Many practitioners find that it helps them to regain flexibility, strength, and calmness into older age. It might also help increase recovery time from illnesses or traumatic events.

No equipment or mats required, please wear comfortable clothing. Seated modifications are available for comfort.

Fall Book Discussion Series

Carole Shmurak completes the fall mystery series The City By the Bay in this final discussion.

The state of California looms large in the history of mysteries. Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, set in San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, set in Los Angeles, essentially began the “hard–boiled” tradition of American mysteries. Last spring, we looked at The City of Angels; now it’s time for mysteries in The City by the Bay. But whatever you do, don’t call it “Frisco”!   

Isabel Spellman, PI, is a member of a highly functioning, highly dysfunctional family of private investigators.  Izzy would like to leave the family firm in San Francisco, but first she must solve a fifteen-year-old cold case, which soon becomes the most important case of her life. This was Lisa Lutz’s debut novel, a funny and fast-paced story that became the start of a prize-winning, best-selling series.
