[WEBCAST] Conscious Living: Managing Stress, Trauma, and Change with Qigong and Tai ChiVIEW EVENT DETAILS
In collaboration with Living Well Therapies
Asia Society at Home
Turn on the news, listen to your friends, or tune in to your self-talk — the dominant conversation is negative. We live in an era of unprecedented challenges in our homes, in the United States, and indeed, all over the world. Perhaps for the first time in our history, U.S. citizens are not welcome in other parts of the world. We are facing the worst of a global pandemic; we are confronting a history of racism, injustice, and economic inequality; our political, educational, criminal justice, educational, and medical systems are proving ineffective; and people disagree ideologically on how to address every one of these issues. Meanwhile, bills are due, most people seem to feel less secure, and we are working harder than ever.
How do we as human beings manage our mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health during such overwhelming stress, trauma, and change? What can we do to be better individuals, parents, friends, family members, co-workers, and citizens? Join us for 90 minutes of empowering, practically applied mind-body skills, and evidence-based answers from Living Well Therapies.
