The Society for Nanlaoshu is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving this ancient Chinese longevity practice. Through meditation and physical movement we pursue health and well-being. This dual cultivation allows us to return to a natural state of balance and harmony.

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.
