​​The healing form called Tai Chi Qigong takes its name for the Daoist phrase Tai Chi, meaning The Supreme Ultimate, or the best there is!
The form is a one-hour, participatory seated exercise that balances and enhances the body's whole energy (qi: "chee") system from top to bottom. Working along the same energy pathways (meridians) that are used in acupuncture and acupressure, Tai Chi Qigong requires no special clothing (though looser is better) or equipment, and neither calls on special training or esoteric knowledge, nor makes physical demands on participants. You will come off the hour relaxed and energized, internally balanced and, usually, blissed. Do yourself a favor and try it out!

Calling all non-singers, wounded childhood singers, and those who love to sing to create a sacred circle together and join our voices. Heart opening songs will be taught each week through call and response. Singing with others builds community and promotes a healthy sense of belonging to something greater than ourselves. It also lights up more areas of the brain than any other human activity. Learning new songs increases neuroplasticity. So come sing with us when your schedule permits; your heart, brain, inner child and expanding awareness will be glad you did!
