The Bodhi Meditation Society, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching meditation, will bring the area’s first Energy Bagua walking meditation class for adults ages 18 and older to the Westchester Community College, in Valhalla, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., August 22 to 28.

Designed to replenish and balance the body’s energy levels, Energy Bagua is an easy-to-learn walking meditation that uses circular motions to increase the body’s vitality, promote mental and physical fitness, and improve health. Grandmaster JinBodhi used Energy Bagua to recover from his childhood illnesses, and was inspired to teach others who seek better health. Energy Bagua helps students tap into the Universe’s energy through movements that mirror the flow of nature. This form of meditation is ideal for practitioners who prefer a dynamic alternative to the traditional, seated meditation practice.

“I have seen consistent practitioners benefit from a better sleep quality, find relief from joint pain and lower their blood pressure and sugar levels,” says Energy Bagua instructor, Guan Shan. 

Participants should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. While individual results may vary, the overall response to Energy Bagua is a reported increase in overall wellbeing. The registration deadline is August 11.

Cost: $180. Location: Westchester Community College, 75 Grasslands Rd, Valhalla, NY. For more information or to register,
