It was a beautiful day for Qigong in the park. In honor of the birds in McGolrick, I am posting some pictographs of various birds found on oracle bones of the Shang period (1600 BC to 1046 BC) from, Nature in Chinese Art drawn by Harry E. Gibson.
The birds seem to really appreciate a certain qigong movement we are doing. So if you want to find out what that is…well come and join us!
These images represent some of the earliest forms of Chinese writing and indeed one can see a visual relationship with the more recent characters (more pictographs below). Qigong's origins are ancient as well, but all the living creatures from which many of the movements are taken are still alive on Earth today.
has studied qigong and taiji with Sat Chuen Hon, a Taoist and native of China for several years. Mr. Hon has asked her to carry on this Taoist healing tradition to help benefit others. Ms. Fox received her MFA in painting from Yale University in 1997. Her studio practice, writing as well as her study of dance and movement have been woven together over many years into a rich exploration and inner search. She is a published poet and has recently helped prepare and edit Sat Hon's writings on Qigong and Taoist stories for publication.
