group doing Bagua exercises

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.

News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery. For more information contact the library at 831-6831.
