About

Welcome to the Salt Lake-Moanalua Public Library! A former storefront library across the street, our current  library opened on Aug. 29, 1992. Our two-story building houses some of the library system’s administrative and support office staff. It features beautiful murals of historic Salt Lake and Moanalua during ancient Hawaiian times by renowned local artist Patrick Ching.

八卦內功簡介

Energy Bagua is a special method of meditation developed by Master JinBodhi for the maintenance of good health.  It balances YIN and YANG energy, while facilitating interaction with Universal energy, regenerating vitality and improving health.  Energy Bagua is based on two main components: movements of the palms and walking in circles.  It combines strength and softness, the physical and the mental.  While practicing Energy Bagua, students can grasp the balance of YIN and YANG, return to Nature, and connect with the universal energy to quickly replenish vital energy, stimulate the immune system, and improve health conditions.

OPEN SESSION EVERY SATURDAY (the library is open) 11:00 am – 12:30 Noon
