Virtual mindfulness, meditation, yoga, energy medicine & more

The former Cornell College Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Catherine Quehl-Engel, created this page so community members can access spiritual wellness content at any time. Many thanks to Rev. Cathy for allowing this content to remain available to the community.

Access the peace you've had all along hidden beneath tension and worry. Beyond our live campus offerings, here you'll find mind-body-spirit recordings with certified mindfulness, meditation, yoga instructor, sound healer, qigong practice group leader, and former Cornell College Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Catherine Quehl-Engel. 

Videos include mindfulness and meditation, energy medicine like qigong, vibrational sound healing, yin yoga with TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) informed sequences, and other ways of rebalancing energy centers and pathways of the body. Remember, you can approach breath, energy, and awareness in either prayerful sacred or secular ways depending on your wiring.

Mindful Session 6:  YIN YOGA 

YIN YOGA is a slow, meditative, relaxed approach to compliment more active yoga, running, etc.  Yin Yoga is a mindfulness practice which also penetrates connective tissue in hard to reach areas around joints and muscles as we hold postures for 2-4 minutes with mild to moderate sensation in targeted areas. Rev. CQE integrates TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) using 5 Element theory, meridians (energy pathways) and acupressure points to enhance healing wholeness and peace.

Less polished practice videos filmed Spring 2020 as Rev. CQE and other educators scrambled to create care responses amid the initial phase of the pandemic impacting our campuses. Still, these videos contain goodness, offering ways to ground, relax, and navigate amid these complicated times.
