Integrating Chi Kung with Jewish Practice

Many of the spiritual values and customs of the Chinese healing arts have threads of commonality with Judaism and can be woven together to craft something uniquely Jewish.  It is not necessary to have a fragmented spiritual life where lighting Shabbat candles, meditating, doing yoga or tai chi are seen as disconnected experiences.  With a little imagination, it is possible to integrate seemingly disparate traditions into a personal and meaningful expression of Jewishness.  In this session participants will learn to link Chinese chi kung practices to embodied articulations of the Shema, Modeh Ani and other Jewish prayers.
