FRI-J: East Meets West – Qigong Practice (Pronounced “Chi gong”)

On the APJCC Green with Rabbi Hugh Seid-Valencia

Friday, May 13, 2022 at 10:30am on the APJCC Green with Rabbi Hugh Seid-Valencia

This philosophical and physical Fr-J experience will take its cue from the “East Meets West in Art ” exhibit in the APJCC gallery. Join Rabbi Hugh as we 

  • Explore some similarities between the concept of qi in Chinese medicine and philosophy and the concept of chiyyut in Jewish thought, 
  • Discuss how we might decouple our God ideas from an exclusively Western framework, 
  • Practice some qi gong exercises as a way of integrating these discussions and maybe even aligning ourselves with an immanent Deity. 

Qigong was developed in China thousands of years ago as part of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves using exercises to optimize energy within the body, mind, and spirit, with the goal of improving and maintaining health and well-being.
