Breathe: Veterans Art and Wellness Workshop I

at Crow Collection of Asian Art • Free for Veterans
Sat Mar 25 2017 10:00 am — 2:00 pm
Crow Collection of Asian Art
Free for Veterans

In its second year, the Breathe program at the Crow Collection of Asian Art invites local veterans to take part in five free weekend workshops. The galleries and works of art at the Crow Collection provide a tranquil environment for reflection and discovery. During these workshops, participants will be introduced to the calming and strengthening effects of Qigong and encouraged to express themselves through art observation, writing, and art-making.

The Crow Collection is proud to partner with SimplyAware offer quality Qigong training. Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the practice of Qigong improves breathing, posture, and mental focus.  Lunch will be provided for all participants. Register in advance to receive a free Breathe T-shirt at the end of the first workshop you attend! To celebrate their participation, veterans who attend four out of the five workshops will receive a custom Challenge Coin at the completion of the program!

The March workshop will include:

  • Gallery Discussion
  • Tibetan Healing Bowls Session
  • Introduction to the practice of Qigong
  • The art of making traditional mulberry paper
