Qigong - A Somatic Approach to Movement Meditation with Melissa Forester


Fri Feb 03 2023 at 10:00 am to 11:30 am


The Berkeley Alembic | Berkeley, CA

Join us Friday mornings for a class that will move from the mechanical, to the energetic, and then into Qigong-based meditation.
About this Event

Using movement awareness and tissue preparation exercises, we will prepare the structure such that the energy body naturally awakens, purifies, organizes, and contains.

Creating this vessel will enable an approach to energetic meditation which will lead to insight and a clarity of thought and action.


1. The front door to The Alembic auto-locks, and since we don't want our volunteer to miss the class, the door will be locked at 10:15am. Please arrive with ample time to settle in.

2. There is ample free parking - details and directions will be in your confirmation email.
