2012 the 5th Daoist Qigong Breathing Retreat
The 5th in a series of annual retreats on Daoist Qigong practices, this follows a tradition that began in Montreal (2008) and continued through Shambala Center & San Diego (2009), San Diego (2010), and New Mexico (2011).
The core practice is the newly introduced revolutionary Breathing Meditation that is rooted from Daoist Yin Yang Tuna(阴阳吐纳法)，combined with wind-breathing (风呼吸) and natural abdomen breathing methods to ignite the Dantian fire(丹田点火).
The unique Hunyuan Sword Finger Mudra (混元剑指诀) and point-massaging based on TCM makes this Breathing Exercise very powerful and effective to activate and enhance internal Yuan Chi (元气) and human vitality. Five Element Circulating Meditation (五脏循行) and Nine Chakra（九宫开脉）Meditation are also integrated into this intensive retreat practice to help the participants to make a leap in advancement.
This practice balances the body’s energy centers and enhances the micro-circulative system, which in turn improves respiratory, digestive, blood circulation, and immune functioning.
With consistent practice, practitioners can also easily access their innate "super-intelligence," as evidenced by greater mental clarity, increased paranormal abilities and a stronger connection with the source of all life.
Other practices include modified Bagua(八卦) Circle Walking Meditation，Tailbone Tip Rotating to loosen the Lower Back for Jing-to-Chi cultivation(炼精化气) and some popular modern qigong forms.
An optional 5-day fast is also included for those who would like to experience the amazing detoxifying and cleansing benefits of Daoist Bigu（辟谷）.
Our energy field is so strong and powerful that participants usually enjoy surprising healings and uplift in their practice with new openings either in their Dantians, Chakras or the Central Meridians.
Space will be limited, please contact Shelly early to reserve your spot.
