This month we will have a continuation, a sequel if you will, of last month's Summer Solstice Celebration. We will continue and build upon the lessons from the previous session -- Heart Health Chi Kung, Six Healing Sounds, and Swimming Dragon Chi Kung. As we transition from summer toward the "second summer", as the Chinese refer to what many Americans call "Indian summer", we work on heart health issues, and look ahead to spleen health issues. Since the Spleen Meridian is central to the collection of chi from the earth, this is of critical interest to our practices.
The gathering is Friday, July 18, at 5:45 pm at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center. Be there by 5:55 at the latest: we will probably walk out to Emmott's Circle for the gathering. Emmott's Circle has an outdoors classroom that is perfect for us -- it has seating, but is immersed in a nature setting. The charge is $10.
As I told the group last month, this is the beginning of a new Houston tradition. We are open to anyone - anyone who is interested. Some of our folks practice Tai Chi but have a different Tai Chi teacher; this is great, because our Chi Kung exercises share the essence of all Tai Chi systems. It allows us to gather and share our common interests in the energy of chi (qi) and the mysteries of our existence.
