Prepare for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season by exploring ways to become more quiet, still and centered internally. Sutter Health is sponsoring “Qigong Meditation for Health and Well-being — Holiday Edition” from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St.
Participants will explore several different kinds of qigong meditation: seated, standing and walking. Some of the meditations will include visualization to move and harmonize qi/energy; others will focus on finding a mental state of “cheerful indifference.”
The workshop will include meditations to address stress and fatigue as well as practices to help strengthen and protect oneself against the cold, damp and viral infections of winter. Also included will be meditations designed to protect participants from the negativity of others.
“Both Eastern and Western medicines agree that when we use meditation to center and harmonize ourselves internally, we are much better able to handle the stress and challenges that life presents,” a news release said.
Beginning and experienced meditators are welcome. The fee is $55 and space is limited. For more information or to register, contact Rebecca Pope, certified master of medical qigong, at [email protected] or 530-792-7127.
