May First Friday: QiGong and Sound with Dylan Scott

Dylan Scott is a committed and passionate teacher inspired by his deep connection to and gratitude for mindfulness practice. Drawing from his own experiences of bringing the teachings to life, Dylan has worked with diverse populations ranging from high school students to older adults. He received a B.S. in Exercise Science focused on Sports Psychology from Ithaca College in 2015, and has applied what he's learned as he continues to grow under the mentorship of senior teachers at the Myrna Brind Center for Mindfulness at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. 

Dylan discovered qigong on his first week long silent retreat at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center in 2017 and, struck by the benefits he experienced, has been practicing and incorporating qigong into his mindfulness teaching ever since. He has gone on to learn and train under senior teachers at Myrna Brind as well as international qigong teacher Franz Moeckl who holds yearly workshops through Jefferson. His training has centered on the 18-movement shibashi qigong form, as he expands on it to incorporate other forms including the eight pieces of brocade.

Dylan has played and formally studied guitar and drums since the age of 12 and attended The Hartt School in Hartford, Connecticut for a year with a concentration in jazz drums and music production. He produces electroacoustic music under the moniker LTMR, and is enthusiastically searching for ways to combine his passions for mindfulness and music to promote healing and well-being.

This workshop will include a brief discussion on the history of QiGong and the definition of it, inlcuding research that links to its health benefits. Dylan will lead you through the qigong forms, starting with a warm-up routine and then the Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi 18 Movement sequence. Itwill be followed by a sound meditation displayed by Dylan. This will enhance your mindfulness experience and help you submerge into a deeper relaxation and sense of well-being.
