In Chinese medicine, “Qi” – pronounced “chee” – is the energy that flows through the body. “Gong” – refers to the practice of moving energy through the body. This energy moves through channels called meridians. It is thought that when Qi is not flowing freely through the meridians, physiological and emotional problems may arise. When the Qi is flowing freely the body maintains balance and health.

The lecture series will be held on the third Tuesday of each month, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Future discussions will focus on integrative oncology, meditation, palliative care, massage therapy, mandalas and yoga.People with cancer can learn about the healing benefits of qi gong during a talk from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16, at the James P.
