CANCELLED–Special Lecture: The Way of Qigong
April 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
***Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope you will join us for our next special lecture on Saturday, May 20th.
Presented by special guest lecturer: Ken Cohen
Learn why many millions of people in the West (including more than 3 million in the U.S.) practice this ancient Taoist healing art. In this dynamic lecture, renowned qigong master Ken Cohen will introduce the healing philosophy of qigong and its connection to the Taoist quest for harmony with nature. By following postural and movement guidelines set by ancient people, we awaken an ancient part of ourselves. We find the spirit of the bear, the tiger, the deer within, and, like them, learn how to sense what nourishes us. Explore cutting edge scientific research that validates qigong’s healing benefits and explains how and why it works. The 60 minute lecture will be followed by a reception and book-signing.
Ken Cohen (高漢) has been practicing Qigong, Tai Chi Ch’uan, and related arts since 1968. One of the best known teachers in the world today, he was the first to lecture about qigong in North American medical schools. Ken is the author of the award winning book The Way of Qigong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing and more than 200 journal articles. He is subject of Dr. Zhang Qingsong’s soon to be released biography: 洋氣功大師高漢：古老智慧與現代科學對話的使者 “The West’s Great Qigong Master Gao Han (Ken Cohen): Emissary of the Dialogue Between Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science.” Visit Ken’s Cohen’s website here!
