QiGong Workshop - Saturday Aug 6

Hello Friends,

Just a reminder about the Half-Day of practice on Saturday August 6 doing mindful movement and contemplating some inspirational reflections from a variety of traditions.

Busy-ness is violence.
It covers our fear of being found out as the phonies we are.
– Thomas Merton
