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

Please join us on June 16 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.

QiGong (also qi gong, chi kung, chi gung, qìgōng, or chi gong) is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for health, spirituality, and martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi), translated as "life energy".

What do movement and breath have to do with the Dharma, you might ask? For Jim, these are a natural extension of the lineage of Ruth Denison and an engaging application of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

Please bring a treat to share during the tea break.

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.

You can learn more about Jim's approach to this ancient practice at his website:
