Experience the deep peace and simple joy of slow walking meditation in the Plants of Promise Garden at the Arboretum. Each walking meditation practice begins with a series of very gentle Qigong movements. Qigong is an easy, mindful movement practice that supports the body's natural healing processes, promotes healthy circulation, invites a sense of inner calm, and releases tension from the body. Accessible to all ages and all bodies. Group size is limited so that physical distancing can be observed. Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing.


*Registrants will be sent a reminder email the day prior to class with the meeting location and additional details. Please add to your contacts to ensure our emails do not end up in your spam folder. We encourage all participants to make conscious, courteous decisions based on your own and others' wishes and needs for safety. Mask wearing is supported but not required of participants for experiences in the field.
