Aleksey Huntsin ’13 is taking a break from not submitting Wesleying posts to submit a Wesleying post or two:

This year’s lessons in Meditation, Taichi, and Kung Fu, taught by the Wesleyan Small Forest Temple, are beginning this Thursday!

The practice sessions meet on Thursdays: Meditation at 5:00pm in the Memorial Chapel meditation room, Taichi at 6:30 in the Freeman Athletic Center Multipurpose Room, and Kung Fu at 7:30 in the Freeman Athletic Center Wrestling Room.

Although there is a course fee of $60 payable by cash or check, the temple expresses that money should not be an obstacle in training and they are willing to work with students should the need arise.
