Priyadarshi George will present an evening of tai ji, meditation and qi gong at the Camden Public Library on Tuesday, March 30 at 6:30 p.m.

Tai ji, also known as t’ai chi ch’uan, is a movement-art that helps find an inner gracefulness while providing gentle and effective exercise that stimulates the flow of healing energy. Participants will enjoy a relaxing and energizing evening with Priyadarshi, who will discuss these meditative disciplines along with some guided experiential learning.

Priyadarshi has studied tai ji, meditation and qi gong for more than three decades. He practices psychotherapy and teaches contemplative arts in Camden at High Mountain Hall and at the Arts of Living Learning Center in Augusta. The presentation will be free and open to the public.

Priyadarshi received his name and permission to teach meditation from Muni Sushil Kumarji in the 1970s. He studied with Muniji until his death in 1994. Priyadarshi was also affiliated with the Zen Bei Butokukai for 20 years and studied tai chi, qi gong, and other meditative and martial arts under Brian Ricci, sensei, and Richard Kim, o’sensei. Priyadarshi and Barbara Dunlap Warren founded the Arts of Living Learning Center in Augusta to foster living in harmony as individuals and with fellow beings and the planet through psychotherapy, course offerings and public programs.
