Saturday, January 8, 9:15 – 12:45. In person at the Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation Social Hall.
Start off the new year with practices that can add vitality and calmness to your life!
The morning is suitable for beginner and experienced meditators. For beginners, we will cover the basics of sitting meditation with an opportunity to practice and ask questions. For more experienced meditators, incorporating movement into your meditation practice can deepen and integrate your practice into your life. Meditation instruction will be given by Jill Boone, a Buddhist Lay Minister who leads the West Seattle Buddhist Sangha.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of breath work, meditation and movement practice for health and martial arts training. The morning will incorporate several sessions of Qigong, so you can experience a range of practices. Qigong will be led by Sifu Viola Brumbaugh, a Tai Chi master and beloved teacher of Tai Chi and Qigong here in West Seattle (at Kenyon Hall), Burien and Capitol Hill, as well as on Zoom. You can learn more about what she offers by visiting wise-orchid.com.
The morning is offered freely by Viola and Jill, with an opportunity and encouragement to make a donation (cash or check only) in support of WSUU and the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, a nonprofit that protects and preserves the waters of the Puget Sound.
Covid restrictions are in play, so we are limiting attendance and requiring pre-registration, spatial distancing, masks, proof of vaccination and a sign-in sheet for potential Covid tracing. Food is not allowed. A reminder and any additional information will be sent to those who have registered in early January.
Since the number of participants is limited, we kindly request that you only register if you can attend the full session and that you let us know if you register and then cannot attend. To register or if you have questions, please email Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
