Walking Meditation is about arriving in the present moment, a renewable source of energy. This class will focus on informal and formal practices that can be used both as a meditation and in your daily activities. Learn the purpose, points, practices, and why we walk and who we walk for to leave an energetic imprint of peace with each step.
T’ai Chi Ch’uan is sustaining harmony with the Universe. It is based on the observation of nature, understanding the forces of balance and change. Spanning the realm of body, mind and spirit it brings enduring health and a sense of well-being. This is a standing practice for ease of learning.
We’re looking forward to this new offering, and we hope you are too!
See you in the Gardens!
