FLOW LIKE A RIVER – Qigong on the Walkway
Friday, July 8, 2022 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park
Join us for a Qigong session at the Ulster Welcome Center. The "meditative movement" practices of Qigong (pronounced "chee-gong") combine easy, fun, flowing exercises, gentle breathing, and meditation to help us relieve anxiety, release stress, and feel more energized and peaceful. The natural movement of water is a reflection of natural wellness within ourselves. We are healthiest and happiest when the body is relaxed and flowing like the tide of the river, and when the mind is quiet and deep like the sea. All practices can be done seated or standing and are adaptable to suit individual comfort levels. Everyone is welcome to participate. These events are free for Walkway members, while non-members are asked to consider donating at the event ($5 suggested). All proceeds support Walkway Over the Hudson and its mission to bring dynamic programs like this to the Hudson Valley community.

Drumming Circle at East Gate Plaza
Sunday, July 10, 2022 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park
Drumming Circle will be coming to the East Gate Plaza on July 10th from 11 AM to 1 PM. The quality of the music produced in a drumming circle is not based on the rhythmical expertise of the players, but on the quality of their relationship with the other people in the circle. The result is those magical musical moments where one powerful voice is created out of the many. In those moments, the players stop worrying about keeping time because time, as they know it, has stopped. In its place is a living breathing entity, expressing timeless joy, passion and release through the power of rhythm.
