Course offers healing exercises

An event to help people learn healing exercises for themselves and others will take place in Osakis on Saturday, October 10.

The "Spring Forest Qigong Level 1" workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. at Holiday Resort, 13377 Falcon Drive, Osakis.

Spring Forest Qigong (SFQ) is an advanced, simple, and powerful form of qigong designed to help people of all ages and physical abilities.

In this daylong course, participants will learn about factors that block qi (chi-energy), causing illness, use of sound in meditation, and many other holistic practices, according to Ann Cathcart, a board-certified holistic nurse healer, who will lead the session.

Participants will also learn active exercises to balance and heal the body and emotions.

Cathcart is certified to teach Level 1 SFQ by Master Chunyi Lin, the founder of Spring Forest Qigong and has studied with Master Lin for more than 10 years. This certificate course is a prerequisite to other SFQ level courses and guild membership.

Lunch, manual, meditation CD and program DVD are included in the $135 cost of the program. Wear comfortable clothing. To register, call Ann Cathcart at (952) 474-9800 or send registration fee to: Ann Cathcart, 7949 Autumn Ridge Lane, Chanhassen, MN 55317.
