Chi Center Retreats give the time to learn and to live this Qigong practice, so when you go back to your homes, your wisdom and your resolve is deep, the deepest it can be for this age, this day, this time in your life.

Some retreats are for beauty, some for sleep, and one changes every day ahead. The Chi Center Retreat with Master Mingtong Gu isn’t time away from life; it is time to begin a life with more joy, energy and wellness. Take time this springtime to learn the medicine-less practice of Qigong to thrive through the challenges of aging, illness and stress. Offering 5, 10 and 14 days retreats in beautiful Sonoma County, CA, it is the only retreat center in North America that is led by a Qigong Master trained in Wisdom Healing Qigong, and modeled on the largest Wisdom Healing Qigong Center in China that successfully trained over 200,000 people of all ages.
“When I traveled 2000 miles to the Chi Center’s Healing Intensive Retreat, I knew my life would change, but I was surprised by how much. I had just completed cancer treatment, and was ready to learn the Qigong practice that could support my recovery. My life started changing during the retreat, and now after a year of daily practice I am happy to say I am working, enjoying life and my tests are all good,” retreat participant Susan Drouilhet says.
Retreat days are filled with Qigong practice, including movement, visualization and sound healing led by Master Mingtong Gu. “I met others at the Retreat with Parkinson’s, diabetes, Lyme’s disease, addiction, chronic pain, emotional trauma. Imagine a retreat where our health journey is guided, so we support our physicians and medical treatments,” Susan said.
Master Gu trained directly with the founder and grandmaster of Wisdom Healing Qigong, the mind-body practice that focuses on rejuvenating health, joy and vitality. This form of Qigong is the personal practice that allows the person or patient to more actively support their contemporary medical care and/or traditional Chinese and holistic medicine. "Qigong awakens inner wisdom to bring back health and wellness. We have such healing capacity within, that with the practice of Qigong, especially Wisdom Healing Qigong, each person can open and guide this wisdom. Chi Center Retreats give the time to learn and to live this Qigong practice, so when you go back to your homes, your wisdom and your resolve is deep, the deepest it can be for this age, this day, this time in your life."
The April retreats will be held at the Angela Center in Santa Rosa, CA in Sonoma County. The residential retreat includes lodging, wholesome meals, plenty of rest and a new community of friends and teachers going forward together. Wisdom Healing Qigong can be done standing, sitting and laying down, so all ages and health conditions are welcome.
“It was a vacation like no other. It was a vacation from old ways of thinking and being, and the clatter and busy-ness of the world,” Susan says.
The Spring retreats present an opportunity to realize personal wellness potential and actively improve mental and physical health with skills cultivated directly in Retreat that can be taken home for continuity ahead. The Spring retreats take place from March 30 to April 12, 2012, with costs ranging from $865 to $3600, depending on length, occupancy, etc. For more information, please visit http://www.chicenter.com or contact us at 707-347-6489.
