Exploring Unity Consciousness: Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, Chi Kung
Beginning Wednesday, May 9 at 11:00 am, the West Tisbury Library will host a free workshop series led by Reiki Master, Ed Merck and Tai Chi instructor, Ty Romijn. This series titled, “Exploring Unity Consciousness” will meet on eight Wednesday mornings throughout the spring. Participants will practice meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Chi Kung, and will learn how these time-honored spiritual disciplines all have the same root purpose – to help us live from a level of consciousness where we perceive ourselves and the wider-world as interconnected. Come explore the “how-to” of each discipline as well as the connections among them.
Sign up is required, and participants are asked to commit to all seven sessions: 5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 5/30, 6/6, 6/13, 6/30 from 11am-12pm. Please contact the West Tisbury Library to reserve your space: 508-693-3366. This series is free and open to the public.
