Qi Gong Movement and Meditation for Diabetes

Roxbury

Description

In this session of Navigating Diabetes Through Food and Community, Carl Donaldson, DTCM, PhD, MMQ, will speak about the powerful role of Qi Gong movement and meditation to impact diabetes.

Patrons are invited to join one or more sessions where they will learn from professionals who value scientific research, and the important role community plays when treating diabetes. Sessions will cover a range of topics including community building, healthy cooking demonstrations, Qi Gong movement, and more. According to the CDC, 37.3 million Americans, 11.3% of the population, have diabetes, and 96 million Americans over the age of 18 are living with prediabetes. Whether patrons have been diagnosed with diabetes, prediabetes, or live with someone with these diagnoses, all are welcome. Registration is required for each session.


Carl Donaldson is the founder and owner of The Healthy Crane Wellness Center located in Arlington, MA. Carl has a Clinical Doctorate degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the University of Bridgeport, CT and he earned his PhD and Master of Medical Qi Gong degree from the Three Treasures Holistic School in Miami, FL.

Carl approaches healing through meditation that works with the mind and energetic emotional possibilities and structures we all have. He uses slow body movement and breath work to engage the mind to move through all of the historical traumas we have gathered throughout our time. Carl approaches nutrition to heal the body with the understanding that the body is designed to heal itself.
