What is Qigong Movement? It is something ANYONE can do. It is based in healing...both preventative and curative. It looks a lot like Tai Chi (based in martial arts). I've worked with folks who are wanting a healthier, less stressful lifestyle, to those recovering from surgery, trauma, even Olympic athletes! ANYONE can participate in Qigong. If you have questions, email Judy Thurman, Master of Medical/Clinical Qigong and Certified Sound Therapy Practitioner at email@example.com.
Third Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m.
The community sound bath uses the vibrations from gongs and singing bowls to promote health and healing in the body. Wear comfortable clothes and mats or blankets.

Ageism in Colorado
Ageism - the minimization of people on the basis of their age - is pervasive. It can be directed at younger people or older people. Either way, it reduces opportunities and diminishes us all.
Community conversations are effective in reducing ageism. When the community comes together to share their knowledge and perspectives, biases lessen and people's attitudes about age shift. Collectively, we can all participate in changing our biases and reducing ageism.
