2017 Qi Gong at Wilbur Hot Springs Retreat Weekend - June 2nd-4th

Enjoy the powerful healing waters and peaceful environment of Wilbur Hot Springs while enjoying Qi Gong movement and meditation practices. 

In this retreat I will share the teachings I received in my trip to the sacred Hua mountain in China last year in stillness meditation and movement practices. We will learn 8 Tao Yoga immortal flows and immerse ourselves in Sacred Taoist meditations in the AM to open energy pathways in the body and mind, and in the PM to awaken inner vision and intuition. 

Tap into the transformative power of heart-centered awareness to restore balance and flow. This weekend will combine ancient Taoist  movement practices, conscious awareness of subtle energy, visualization techniques and Taoist meditations. 

 • Morning Internal Alchemy Taoist meditation. 
 • Evening Taoist meditation for awakening inner vision. 
 • Tao Yoga Qi Gong sequence. 
 • Morning and sunset outdoor Qi Gong sequences for health and vitality.
 • 30 min massage with Alex Rosan. http://www.bodhihands.com/

This class is accessible to all levels of physical ability.
