Baltimore Chapter Meeting
Saturday September 25, 20105:00 ? 5:30 Introductions and Logistics
We?ll take some time to introduce the group and its purpose for any new members, along with sharing brief introductions to help us all get to know each other a little better. Introductions will then be followed by some quick logistics and updates about the Baltimore Jedi Chapter, associated Maryland and Virginia Jedi Chapter groups, upcoming Gatherings and events, topics for future meetings, and information about the Jedi Resource Center.5:30 ? 6:00 Tai Chi Chih?
Tai Chi Chih? is a series of 19 movements and 1 pose that work to circulate and balance chi energy. Today we will learn and practice a few of the movements to help open and activate the energy pathways in the body. Through these simple movements, we can not only become more sensitive to the energy within and around us, but also promote health and balance within our own bodies.6:00 ? 6:20 Meditation
After activating our energy pathways, it?s important to ground the energy and bring ourselves back to center. There must be balance between movement and stillness, therefore we progress from movement with Tai Chi Chih to stillness with meditation, just as yang flows into yin and vice versa.6:20 ? 6:40 Energy Work and Energy Sensing Techniques
Once we have our energy pathways all fired up, we'll work on grounding and sensing the energy flowing both within ourselves and in the environment around us. We'll have fun with different drills, games, and techniques to help fine tune our sensitivity and increase our control over influencing this energy.6:40 ? 7:00 Open Discussion
If anyone wants to hang out afterwards, this is our opportunity to learn a bit more about each other, share some knowledge, or even discuss where you would like to see this Chapter go.
Every month the Baltimore Jedi Chapter will have new workshops based on member interest and skill level. Volunteers to lead workshops and feedback are encouraged and welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
Meetings are free, although donations are welcome to go towards food and paying for the costs of running the meetup group.IMPORTANT:
