Join us New Year’s Eve for a celebration of Sheng Zhen Qigong – the Qigong of unconditional love – led by guest teacher Mark Wanek of Santa Barbara, Calif. No prior experience needed. If you desire to learn more about connecting to your inner ecology, this workshop is for you. 12/31, 1-2:15p

Sheng Zhen Gong is a system of moving meditation that soothes and tones the nervous system, cultivating ease, relaxation, inner peace and a feeling of love and harmony with the universe. This practice integrates all aspects of our being – from the physical to the energetic, from the mental to the spiritual.

During this 75-minute workshop, we will practice a standing form called Heaven Nature Gong (Kuan Yin Standing Form). The movements may be modified for sitting. From the stillness, we rest in the natural openness of our being, with meditation.

The purpose is not self-improvement, or getting it “right.” It is to cultivate a passionate intimacy with, and mindful integration of all aspects of ourselves and our experience, to come fully alive in our bodies, and in our lives.

Mark Wanek has been studying Sheng Zhen Qigong under Master Li Jun Feng for the past six years. His qigong classes draw inspiration from many sources: nature, traditional Chinese medicine, poetry and yoga. As a geologist by heart and profession, Mark blends his knowledge and respect of qi in nature within the subtle energy flow in the body. He lives, works and teaches in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Class will be offered by donation, with proceeds to Mindful Yoga’s donor fund, matched by Mindful Yoga. Donations earn “karma” yoga, but are not tax-deductible.
