If I cannot accommodate everyone who wants to come on the date announced, I will offer a second date to those who call.
 
This is an opportunity to gather with other practitioners and share what is g oing on, ask questions, and receive support. It is also a time for both meditation and receiving Reiju and, of course, this is all followed by an exchange of Reiki. 
 
Hope to see you there.

Tai Chi Easy is carefully developed method and approach to Tai Chi and Qi (Chi) Cultivation that makes it easy, beneficial and fun from the very beginning.  The student does not have to devote years to learning the traditional 108 movement form or even the shortened (24,36,42)  form to enjoy the calming emotional and health benefits of Tai Chi.

Tai Chi can be done sitting, standing, or walking.  Movements may be done individually or in combination.  Since it is a mind/body integration practice, it can reduce stress, and create a state of relaxation and calm.

Come join us.  It is safe for people of all ages and levels of fitness as the movements are low impact and place minimal stress on muscles and joints.


Bill Stevens is a certified Qigong/Tai Chi teacher from the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi under the supervision of Dr. Roger Jahnke






The Outcome of the System of Reiki

Is it knowing how to chant the mantras correctly?
Is it sitting in seiza for a long time?

 how to place the hands on the correct spot.
No, it is not abOut how to chant the mantras correctly.
No, it is not being able to sit in seiza for a long period of time.
No, it s not knowing 
 how to perform the reiju exactly and correctly.
No, it is not knowing how to recite the precepts in Japanese.




WHY ANIMALS MAKE MEDITATION LOOK SO EASY




Animals make the best meditation partners. It's true! Their natural, calming presence helps to anchor us "in the now," and they approach life with unconditional love, a real challenge for us humans. Next time your cat rests with its eyes closed, or your dog takes a snooze on your lap, don't just think about how cute they are (because, of course, they are), but think, too, about what we can learn from them to improve our own meditation practice. Animals are natural meditators, with peaceful, nonjudgmental minds and open hearts. They remind us what we should all strive for whenever we meditate.

If you meditate with your animals already, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't tried it out just yet, let me encourage you to try! Either way, let these chill furbabies inspire your next meditation:
