Thank you also to the members of the Dunbar Community Centre Association, Centre staff and volunteers for their hard work this year bringing back programs and services after close to two years of unsettled times due to the pandemic. We were thrilled to bring back our annual Holiday Craft Fair after a two year hiatus. Thank you to all of our vendors and sponsors and to those who attended! January will see the return of our much loved lecture series presented by instructors from Langara College. Past subjects have included Mad Men and Wicked Women. We are pleased to present a winter lineup of ‘It’s the End of the World As We Know It.’ We look forward to welcoming children to our Spring Break Camps happening this March and planning will soon be underway for the Summer programs! Keep an eye on our website where we post about upcoming events and to see program offerings at dunbarcentre.org/ dunbar.

Qi is “energy.” Gong is “skill acquired through training.” Hence, Qigong is “energy work.” There are countless sitting, standing, reclining, and moving methods of Qigong, coming from martial arts, Chinese medicine, Buddhist and Taoist traditions. They include posture, movement, massage, visualization, breath work, and using sound to mobilize, build, absorb, and emit Qi. In this course, we will practice seasonal Qigong, based on the 5- element theory of Chinese medicine, focusing on the kidneys (winter), and liver (spring).
