Join us for An Afternoon of Poetry and Qigong Saturday March 23rd at 4:00 P.M. at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. Robin Mullet and Holli Rainwater will share readings and movement from their forthcoming book, The Curve of Her Arm, published by Night Ballet Press. The book combines haiku and free verse in a collection of poems on the art and practice of qigong*. Each poem begins with a particular movement then goes beyond to the emotions, memories, and insights brought to the forefront by practicing this ancient form.

*Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that combines gentle body movement, breath practice, and deep relaxation. Inherent in the practice of qigong is a connection to the healing power of nature and a life lived in balance. The Chi Classes offered by the Library and taught by Holli are based on qigong and its offshoot, tai chi.

The event is free. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
