    Community Dharma Leader

    Marcy Reynolds joined Insight Santa Cruz in 1997. She began her meditation training at Tassajara Zen Center in 1984 with Katherine Thanas and in 1995 began studying with Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, who continues as her root teacher, even though her primary practice focuses on Vipassana and Metta. In recent years, her practice and teaching have been strongly influenced by the work of Shinzen Young. In addition to sitting meditation, Marcy also has a strong Qigong practice and has studied with a number of Chinese and American Qigong Masters, notably Bingkun Hu, who continues to act as her guiding teacher in Qigong. Marcy has taught Qigong since 1997. Her classes emphasize mindfulness of the body through both movement and stillness. In addition to teaching at Insight Santa Cruz, Marcy teaches qigong movement and mindfulness meditation throughout the Santa Cruz and South SF Bay Areas. She also teaches for the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View.

Mindful Movement: Qigong – Thursdays

This drop-in class focuses on the exploration of simple and easy to follow qigong movements for physical health, emotional balance, mental clarity, and mindful awareness. Participation in this class is excellent preparation for Vipassana meditation (which follows in the same room at 7 pm). If you prefer to wear shoes during qigong, please bring a pair that you only use indoors so as to avoid damaging the beautiful bamboo floor. Check the wildcoastqigong.com website for more information and schedule changes. See the listing on the website for details – Mindful Movement: Qigong
