Sutter sponsors qigong meditation for health, well-being

A tranquil mind, Chinese medicine maintains, is the foundation of good health.

Local residents can explore ways to become more quiet, still and centered in “Qigong Meditation for Health and Well-Being,” a workshop sponsored by Sutter Health, from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St.

“Both Eastern and Western medicines agree that when we use meditation to center and harmonize ourselves, we are better able to handle the stresses and challenges that life presents,” a news release said. “Meditation also puts us into ‘rest,’ a state that enhances physical and emotional healing.”

Participants will explore several kinds of qigong meditation: seated, standing and walking. Some of the meditations will use visualization to harmonize and increase qi/energy; others will focus on finding a mental state of, as the Chinese masters say, “cheerful indifference.”

The workshop will include practices to reduce stress, fight fatigue and enhance immunity and will show participants how to use meditation to shield themselves from the negativity of others.

Beginning and experienced meditators are welcome. The fee is $60 and space is limited.

For more information, or to register, contact instructor Rebecca Pope, certified master of medical qigong, at [email protected] or 530-792-7127.
