Hi to each and to all,

Dropping by with an UPDATE regarding our Spring T'ai Chi Chih  and Wisdom Healing Qigong classes … based on initial registrations last week  …

Click Here for flyer ... please note that Wednesday's Beginners T'ai Chi Chih classes have been cancelled. Next sessions will be offered in the Fall.

Wisdom Healing Qigong: classes going ahead the same as on the flyer:
Tuesdays 10:30 -12:00 and 7:00 - 8:30 with both new and returning students  welcome!

T’ai Chi Chih Beginners : Wednesday classes cancelled since only one or two showed up at each first class.  Next Session will be offered in the Fall.   Will keep you posted if any special sessions are offered before September.      

T’ai Chi Chih Beyond Beginners: classes going ahead the same as on the flyer:
Thursdays 1:30 -3:00 with any and all returning students  welcome!

NOTE: As long as you have already learned even just the basics of all of the T'ai Chi Chih movements, you are welcome to join us for the Beyond Beginners class, especially since the Beginners class is cancelled and some of you were planning to do that class over. This class is all about reviewing and refining the movements and taking your practice a little deeper. Great session for building your confidence with your practice! Your own best effort is all that is needed.

Both classes, T'ai Chi Chih and Wisdom Healing Qigong, are a  simple, gentle way to  “Awaken the Energy Within” to experience  more natural energy, to become healthier and to feel more joy!  An added bonus is simply enjoying the shared energy of the group practice as well!

An environmental reminder re fragrances and scented personal care products:
Please keep classes as scent free as possible because of increasing allergies among students, as well as my own, with regard to scents and fragrances, including all kinds of personal care products, hand sanitizers, laundry detergents and fabric softeners such as Bounce, etc.

Again, any way you can share this information regarding our Spring classes at The Lantern would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to get in touch by e-mail or by phone at 727-7863 if you have any other questions …

As always, if you wish to have your name removed from my mailing list, please simply let me know.

Continued blessings for each new day as our long awaited Spring begins to show signs,

                         Sheila

Hi to each and to all,

Click here for a copy of our Spring 2017 T'ai Chi Chih/Wisdom Healing Qigong class flyer for easy reference and printing.

Spring 2017 T'ai Chi Chih and Wisdom Healing Qigong sessions start up next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, April 18th , 19th , and 20th for another 8 weeks, finishing the first week of June. Any particular class will go ahead depending on registrations. Come “Awaken the Energy Within” to experience more natural energy, to become healthier and to feel more joy!

Wisdom Healing Qigong is replacing the previously offered Chow Medical Qigong classes.  Information about any special Chow Medical Qigong sessions would be circulated and posted on my site if they are offered again at some point.

Meanwhile, in summary, our finalized Spring 2017 sessions look like this:

***      Wisdom Healing Qigong is on Tuesdays 10:30 -12:00 and 7:00 - 8:30 with both new and returning students welcome!

***      T’ai Chi Chih on Wednesdays is 10:30 – 12:00 and 7:00 – 8:30 with both new and returning students welcome!

***      T'ai Chi Chih on Thursdays is 1:30 – 3:00 and is a Beyond Beginners group, open only to returning students. There is only the daytime class for this group.

On another note … re costs ...
*** The T'ai Chi Chih Lantern class registration is still set at $80 for the 8 weeks, payable at the first class if possible. That works out to $10/class.   If need be, you can pay weekly, but I would still need to know upfront that you are committing to all 8 weeks. Paying upfront, committing upfront at the end of the first class is preferred since it lets me know that there are enough students committing to the particular class in order for it to go ahead. It also serves as motivation for students to come when tempted to skip some of the sessions. I have added a tag of “or pay what you can”, to make it available to others for whom the full amount may well be more than they can manage. Happy to chat with anyone for whom that is the case.

*** The Wisdom Healing Qigong  sessions are a continuation of my 1st year Professional Teacher Training started in September. As such, I am suggesting a “good will offering” rather than asking for a “course fee” as such.    All weekly contributions gratefully received and will serve to support the offering of programs as part of our Lantern Ministry. Our Fall and Winter experiences of Wisdom Healing Qigong were wonderfully positive.  Those who came learned lots … and benefitted lots ... and so did I!   We will continue to focus on the introductory practices as an opportunity for me as a “teacher in training” to continue to build on my own practice and teaching while inviting you to learn the practice more and more deeply  and experience more of its amazing benefits.  

An environmental reminder re fragrances and scented personal care products:
Please keep classes as scent free as possible because of increasing allergies among students, as well as my own allergies, to scents and fragrances, including all kinds of personal care products, hand sanitizers, laundry detergents and fabric softeners such as Bounce, etc.

Re this website:

Always welcome to browse this web site. Lots of Wisdom Healing Qigong video links in particular available at the end of that page (See Wisdom Healing Qigong menu bar at bottom on left) for anyone who might like to browse them and get a taste since this is so very new. My Facebook link on my Home Page has a couple of short videos of us as teachers doing practice at T'ai Chi Chih Conference, again to give a feel for it. I don’t do “Friends” on Facebook. Far too time consuming for me. Good for simple posts.   Flyer copy also there. This News Updates menu bar is also a good one to keep checking. Upgrading my web site … a work in progress … for “whenever”!

Feel free to get in touch if you have other questions.
As always, if you wish to have your name removed from my mailing list, please simply let me know.

EnJOY these tastes of Spring we are getting and an early Happy Easter to you …

Continued blessings for each new day as 2017 unfolds,

                         Sheila

At the end of the Wisdom Healing Qigong Page you will find some links to some videos with Mingtong Gu for anyone who would like to have a taste.

Most of them are You Tube links that are readily available, along with numerous others. The last one is a link to a Free Class that Mingtong offered on July 23rd of this year.

Perhaps they may entice you to come and join us for a class at The Lantern on Barnes Road in St. John's, or to go on-line at www.chicenter.com  to find out more and maybe even register for an on-line 3-month course. 

  

An environmental request:

Please keep classes as scent free as possible because of increasing allergies to scents and fragrances, including all kinds of personal care products, laundry detergents, Bounce fabric softeners, etc
