Many things in life can negatively impact us. Our bodies respond to how we think, feel, and act in reaction to these stressors. This impact is often referred to as the mind-body connection. This course will explore how influences such as family, peer and group interactions, and loss can lead to emotional and physical problems, such as anxiety, cardiovascular disease, and fatigue. Learn how to achieve a healthy balance between your emotional and physical health by managing your emotions.

In this course, you’ll learn and practice mind-quieting and mind-observation techniques, identifying causes of stress, and learning how to relieve it. We will discuss different styles of meditation, but the emphasis will be on the actual doing, including meditation while walking. The approach is non-theistic and draws on Eckhart Tolle’s ideas on mind observation and presence, as well as on Zen silent illumination. Be prepared for a life-changing experience—one that can impart a deep sense of peace, lower blood pressure, and help change compulsive behavior. Please wear non-restrictive clothing

Stephen Gillum has practiced meditation for more than 35 years. He spent time studying in India, including three years living in an ashram. His mentors were leading authorities in the field of mantra and meditation. Stephen practices his non-theistic style that fuses Eckhart Tolle and Zen and focuses on relaxing and observing the mind.

There will also be an introduction to the Silk Exercises (Baduanjin) depending upon session progress.

Qi Gong is the ancient Chinese art of using slow but dynamic cardiovascular exercises to move fluids, nourish blood, open channels, and protect the vital organs from infection and disease. Gentle musculoskeletal exercises are enriched with streams of revitalizing slow breathing to open the joints, tonify the muscles, and balance the Yin and Yang energies of the mind and body. Free limb and waist movements use joints rather than muscular strain to unburden stress and ease to relaxation. The emphasis in class sessions is upon Dong Gong, which intends to dispel physical and emotional blockages through the practice of Qi Gong form movements. The instructional environment for this course is noncompetitive and emphasizes safe, motivational, group-oriented practice to enrich the quality of life.
