Morning Meditation Series

8:00 - 9:00 am

Join us for a weekly morning guided meditation session led by Ruby Shih.

Start the day with gentle awareness as we connect with ourselves and each other. We calm our hearts to sense a deeper connection to Nature’s Qi for nourishment & healing. Sitting as a group, we generate a stronger Qi field to support each other and our community.

Free to current members.

Meditation Series

6:00 - 6:45 pm

Meditation is integral to the Nanlaoshu practice and leads to the cultivation of a calm spirit and clear mind. This ongoing class will consist of a question and answer period, the "9 Orifice Breathing" method, head and foot massages as taught by Master Koo, and then a seated or standing meditation period.

Free to current members.
