Wednesday, August 21, 7-9 p.m., Immune Building with Qigong, Manchester Community College. $25. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and refers to a broad range of medicinal practices, including Qigong, which have evolved over thousands of years. Specific immune building Qigong exercises help to stimulate the function of the lungs and activate the energy in Yang Qi (the part of Qi that moves and is put to use). This in turn helps to circulate the Wei Qi, which is the defensive and protective Qi that coats the skin of the whole body. These exercises can be done by anyone and can be adapted to sitting positions. Students should dress comfortably. CRN 20720; GPA Room GP214. Instructor: John Mammone, M.S.
