Alumni in the Tucson area gathered in November for a workshop in qigong, a Chi- nese system of “physical and mental training for health, martial arts, and self-enlighten-


ment” akin to t’ai chi.


Following lunch at the home of Linda Nard Leedberg ’67, qigong practitioner Catherine Lumenello ’95 led participants in “energy play” exercises using breath and movements to increase their awareness of the body’s chi energy. Event organizer Joel Bresler ’82 says, “Everyone related feeling their chi, which is unusual for so many people doing this sort of thing for the first time.” The group included alumni from the classes of ’49 to ’01 and a 10-year-old as well. Several reported increased energy after the exercises and more rest- ful sleep that night.


Judy Katz Esbit ’82 confirms, “The energy was most definitely flowing in a positive and nurturing way.” Linda Berke ’61 says the event “aptly reflected the adage ‘learning never ceases.’“ Jane Wilson, MALS ’01, loved doing “something interesting, fun, and engaging instead of just drinking cocktails.” All expressed appreciation for Lumenello’s teachings and Leedberg’s hospitality.—PD
