Workshop Spotlights

Fluid Meditation ... Friday 8/4 from 2-5 PM

Join us for an investigation into the relationship between SunDo-Taoist meditation and the tidal pulsations of the cerebral-spinal fluid. Focusing on SunDo's microcosmic orbit (Qi energy circulation) meditation, researchers explain how breath and meditation influence our cerebral-spinal fluid rhythms. When these rhythms are expressed in fullness and balance, health and well-being naturally follow.

Korean Contemporary Dance Performance ... Saturday 8/5

Artistic director, Kim Eun Hee, is a well-known Korean dance choreographer acclaimed for her own peculiar mood, concentration and supple movement pieces. She both a dancer and choreographer with strong endurance and flexibility.  View dance video...
