Change and the uncertainty have been unavoidable aspects of life since the beginning of time. Despite modern advances in technology, the ability to navigate change and deal with uncertainty in both professional and personal life remains as much an art as it is a science. The ancient Chinese observed and documented a finite number of recurrent patterns of change in what is now known as the Book of Changes, or the I Ching. Throughout history, this work has been referred to as a book of fundamental principles and wisdom by philosophers and emperors, and more recently, by scientists, mathematicians and businessmen. The I Ching is very effective in stimulating intuition and creativity by illuminating the hidden and invisible factors in our decision making processes. This workshop will serve as a high-level introduction to the I Ching and the basic methods for applying it to your life.

introduction to Meditation


NEW currentswimmingpoolschedule. EW W

Chi Kung (pronounced "chee gung") is a broad range of gentle, meditative movements and postures developed in ancient China to cultivate health and wellbeing. Tai chi, for example, is a form of chi kung. Chi is vital life energy that can be cultivated in our bodies much the way food and drink provide physical nourishment. Just as research shows that increasing one's physical activity by even a small amount can boost wellness, there is growing research to support the popularity of chi kung and its many benefits to the quality of life. The simplicity of chi kung is at the heart of this class. Through a series of sitting and standing postures, the benefits of grounding, breathing and energy awareness are explored, as well as such practical applications as better focus, balance, sleep, decision-making and stress management.

If life has you feeling stressed and overwhelmed, consider trying a meditation class. In this course you will learn quick and easy ways to meditate that you can incorporate into your everyday life. Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. This course will introduce you to 2 basic types of meditation and provide you with practical meditaion techniques you can do anywhere.
