Three Open Center Classes Begin in November
The New York Open Center is offering several multi-session classes beginning in November, including Medical Qigong, a Breath-Body-Mind Teacher Training and The Art and Science of Hand Reading. All classes will be taught virtually through OpenCenter.org.
Medical Qigong: Flowing with the Five Elements, will be taught by William Kaplanidis. Participants will learn movements and breath control exercises designed to unblock the acupuncture meridians that circulate qi (energy) to the organs associated with each of the five elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine, assisting the body in reaching physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. A free intro class will be offered from 6 to 7 p.m. November 3, and the first of five paid classes begin at 6 p.m. November 10.
Breath-Body-Mind Teacher Training: Level 1, taught by Richard P. Brown and Patricia Gerbarg, integrates ancient and modern trauma-sensitive techniques to rapidly balance stress-response systems for self-care and healing others. This six-session professional teacher training (CEUs available) runs November 18-20 and December 2-4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day (with lunch break).
The Art & Science of Hand Reading, taught by Ellen Goldberg, focuses on the palmistry tradition, in which the hand is considered “God’s road map,” revealing our strengths, weaknesses, relationships and health, and changing over time to provide visual evidence that if we change our thinking, we can change our lives. This two-session workshop will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on November 13 and 20.
