Half-Day QiGong Retreats at PIMC (3rd Saturday of the month)

Please join us on Saturday, August 18 for our monthly PIMC QiGong half-day retreat, taught by Jim Dalton. The retreats are always on the third Saturday of the month, 10am-2pm.

No experience is necessary and beginners are welcome.

These unique retreats combine elements of basic Vipassana practice, mindful movement (QiGong), and quiet contemplation using poetry. Short periods of movement are followed by listening to poetry, and then short periods of sitting. These alternating practices create an atmosphere of relaxation and alert interest, a rhythm of deep explorations of a whole range of mindfulness tools.

Please bring a treat to share during the tea break.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:
As a certified instructor in Tai Chi Moving for Better Balance, Jim's current focus has turned to the Boomer generation and how we are aging. His QiGong and Meditation practice has been influenced by Chinese medicine and the current neurobiology of mindfulness.
