Dragon & Tiger Qigong as Moving Meditation - March 2


Dragon & Tiger Qigong as Moving Meditation - March 2


In this workshop, our special topic of focus will be Physical Body Presence: The 5 Phases of Your Breath.

Bill will help you develop your ability to stay continuously present to all of the parts of your physical body that are directly affected/changed by your breathing.

This workshop is part of a monthly series. In each monthly workshop in addition to addressing a special topic, we also explore and deepen:

  • our foundation practice of becoming more and more present to the soles of our feet when we stand and move;

  • meditation aspects of one of the 7 moves of the Dragon & Tiger set or the transition movements; and

  • how to develop better presence when doing the entire set.


You must have attended one of our Introduction to Moving Meditation workshops. It is also best -but not required - that you know the movements of Dragon & Tiger qigong.

If you choose to practice Dragon & Tiger qigong as meditation with us, we will teach you three aspects of doing so - mental focus, relaxation, and spiritual exploration.

You can choose which of these aspects are more important to you at any time.


In general, we offer a workshop on the first Saturday of every month in which we explore various aspects of Dragon & Tiger qigong as Taoist moving meditation.

To participate you do not have to attend each workshop in the series. You may attend when you can.

Each workshop builds on the information and practices presented in our Introduction to Moving Meditation workshop, which you must take first in order to participate.


The next workshops in this series will be held: 

  • Saturday, May 4: Presence and Relaxation: Letting Go of Your Mind, Chi, and Body

  • Saturday, June 1: Physical Body Presence: Your Fingers and Palms

There will be no workshop in April, as Kathryn Komidar will offer a workshop on Embodying Compassion through Dragon & Tiger Qigong on March 31.

All Workshops include optional discussion of Taoist philosophy led by Bill from Noon to 12:30 p.m.
