Breathe: Art and Wellness Workshop – February
Sat Feb 10 2018 10:00 am — 2:00 pm
Breathe: Art and Wellness Workshop - February @ Crow Collection of Asian Art

Now in its third year, the Breathe program invites local veterans and first responders to gather for monthly workshops centered around the practices of Qigong and art-making. In February’s workshop, participants will explore jade and the process of carving natural materials. You will have the chance to work with a different material — balsa wood — to carve small sculptures.

This month’s practice will focus on the first of eight principles of Qigong: Grounding Energy. The Crow Collection is proud to partner with SimplyAware to offer quality Qigong training for each workshop. Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the practice of Qigong involves simple movement to improve breathing, posture, and mental focus.  Learn more about Qigong with the video below of SimplyAware instructor Chris Bouguyon demonstrating the Golden Ball practice.

Logistics: Register in advance to receive a free Breathe T-shirt at the end of the first workshop you attend! For parking instructions, click here. The Crow Collection will validate for parking in the Trammell Crow Center Parking Garage, so be sure to bring your parking ticket with you. Upon arrival, please meet at the museum front desk. Lunch will be provided for all participants.

Questions? Please email Shoshana McIntosh at smcintosh@crowcollection.org.

Breathe is made possible through the generous support of NorthPark Center.
