Humanities in the Wild: Pine Tree Qi Gong and Poetry

Aug 19, 2022, 11:00 am

Humanities in the Wild is an exploratory outdoor experience that empowers participants to step into the landscapes that inspired some of the American West’s greatest literature.

For this Humanities in the Wild special, join Chinese martial arts master Shifu Jung and his disciples for a pine-tree inspired qi gong movement. The pine tree movement is specifically designed to process anger.

Shifu Jung will be accompanied by Monica Lisette, a slam poet whose work explores the Latina experience, including plenty of fury. Monica Lisette (she/ella) is a Chicana poet from West Jordan. She is a poet, baker, and lover (although not always in that order). She has competed with CHHS slam and Salt City slam. She’s placed nationally at NPS in group pieces and performed/competed/taught around Utah. Her work centers around her culture, generational trauma, and navigating the world as a Latina. Monica is almost exclusively a notes app writer and she will definitely ask you your sign.

This event is made possible with support from Monk Wise Martial Arts Academy and Utah Humanities.
