Qi Gong Study Group!

Sage Community Health Collective is hosting the first meeting of a new Chicago Qigong Study Group!

When: Sunday, May 22 at 3:30 pm!

Where: Sage Community Health Collective, 2514 W. Armitage Avenue #205, Chicago, IL, 60647

The goals of the study group are to help develop a community of people in Chicago interested in qigong and to deepen our understanding of qigong, principally through reading and discussion. We hope the study group will also become a place to network, share, and meet people with similar interests.   Everyone interested in qigong is welcome. You do not have to have a high level of experience in qigong. The organizers met at Eva Wong’s qigong course at Shambhala. The study group will be independent of any particular approach to qigong.

At our first meeting we will introduce ourselves, discover our common interests, and decide how we want to go forward. We antcipate meeting on a monthly basis and centering our meetings around discussion of agreed readings. Some themes that we have considered for readings include connections between qigong and alternative medicine, the history of qigong, and surveys of qigong practice.

The meeting will be held at the Sage Community Health Collective, 2514 W. Armitage Suite, 205. (Buzzer “sagejen.”) This location is two blocks west of Western Ave. The entrance is on Bingham Street. Sage is a short walk from the Western stop on the Blue line. For map location and directions, see link below.

You are welcome to invite friends.

Children are welcome so long as they can read, play quietly or be part of the group.

You are encouraged to bring a healthy beverage or light snack to share with others.
