How often do you get the chance to practice something that is nearly 4,000 years old? For that matter, how often do you get the chance to focus on something that is entirely for you?

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, come learn about and practice the ancient Chinese meditative exercise known as qigong.  Taught by Trinity River instructor Christi Duque, the session “A Wealth of Health” will be open to senior education students who are looking to develop and education their whole person—mind, body and spirit.

The session will focus specifically on “Awakening the Soul” qigong, a simple form of seated exercise that brings together breath and movement to create a greater awareness of exercise and meditation. The session will be from 5-7 p.m. in TRTR 4212 (Action C); a light dinner will be served at the start.

Duque, a certified yoga, reiki, and qigong, was a charter member of the new Trinity River Campus in fall of 2009 and was one of the first faculty members to join forces with the Continuing Education department to start the Senior Education program.  She volunteered and taught senior tai chi before expanding her meditative exercise repertoire.

Those interested in participating in the “Wealth of Health” seminar should RSVP no later than Monday, Oct. 29.  Attendees should come dressed in comfortable clothes. Contact christine.rivera@tccd.edu or call 817-515-1003 to make your reservation today.
