Introduction to Tai Chi

Saturday November 8 - 1.00-3.00 pm

If you're looking for a way to reduce stress, consider the ancient Chinese tradition of tai chi (TIE-CHEE). Originally developed for self-defense, tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that's now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements, performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. (Mayo Clinic)

This two hour workshop will offer in the first hour, warmup exercises and qigong, (life energy cultivation). After a short break the second hour will be a focus on tai chi chuan technique and movement.

Please wear loose fitting clothing and sneakers or comfortable shoes suitable for exercise

Facilitator: Bonnie Luther

Sanctity of Sanctuary

Meigs County, Ohio, in the foothills of Appalachia, is the home of renowned herbalist Paul Strauss. Paul has rehabilitated land left bare by strip mines and has helped to create the United Plant Savers Sanctuary to preserve endangered medicinal plants. He is visited by herbalists from all over the world and holds classes on his 300-acre organic farm. Paul’s vision and transformational leadership have attracted like-minded people to purchase land in the area. These tracts of farms are joined together by a community walking trail that has turned into an eco-tourist destination called “The Talking Forest Medicine Trail.” 

Paul is a charismatic person with wonderful stories to tell and has been referred to as a walking encyclopedia of plants. This feature documentary speaks to a man’s passion for nature and his marriage to the earth. This film is an igniting of the green spark and a call to living a sustainable life!
