Qi Gong returns to Thomaston Public Library

Feb 01, 2014

Thomaston — The Thomaston Public Library announces the Saturday Qi Gong sessions led by Tim English will resume, with a grand re-opening, Saturday, Feb. 8, at 11 a.m. in the Thomaston Academy building gym.

According to the National Qi Gong Association, "The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy. It is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing, and increasing vitality."

The Qi Gong sessions are open to people of any age and skill level. No experience is necessary. Non-restricting, comfortable clothes are advisable for the gentle, graceful exercises of Qi Gong. For more information, call the Thomaston Public Library, 354-2453.
