UPDATE AUGUST 14, 2020
Our next Zoom qigong session will begin on the ninth new moon of the year, Thursday, September 17. In spite of community, national, and planetary stress, I hope you have been making the best of what life has to offer. My continued qigong practice is fruitful. I am grateful for it, and I look forward to returning to our regular sessions.
This session will focus on sound vibration, body alignment, gentle movement, and breathing exercises.
Wishing you all continued peace, health, and healing.

The Northern Dipper Style
Our technique is also called Polestar Qigong, a reference to the North Star, Polaris. There is nothing special about the North Star itself, other than that it occupies space over (and close to) the earth's rotational axis and magnetic pole. It appears not to move while the rest of the stars move around it. This is a metaphor for the still point within, as well as a reference point for the earth's magnetic field lines, both of which are significant in qigong practice. Northern Dipper Qigong includes gentle movements that stretch and open the spine. In this class you will learn about essence; breath and mind; and physical and energetic alignment.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all classes will be held online until further notice. To the left is our regular instruction schedule, which will resume when it is safe to do so. Contact Arthur to sign up for online classes and get started on Zoom.
