5 or 10 Day Healing Retreat in the White Mountains, Arizona

July 28-August 6, 2017

Learn how through the Chinese practice of Qigong you can become healthier, more positive, and increase your awareness!

Qigong is an ancient Chinese Practice which consists of a variety of “still” as well as “moving” meditative methods.  Simple and gentle movements and exercises, combined with visualization, direct the flow of “life force energy” or Qi (Chi) into and through the body.  “Qi” literally means energy or vital life force and “Gong” means work, method or practice.

This practice is based upon the Chinese philosophy that a powerful energy system (Qi/Chi) exists within the body and flows through energy pathways referred to as meridians and channels.  Vital life energy is conveyed to every cell, organ, muscle, and bodily system via these meridians.  If the chi patterns are disrupted by physical or mental stress, emotional distress, environmental exposures or a variety of other factors, a person becomes susceptible to disease.  Health is restored when this disruption of energy or “Qi” is restored.

Qigong is one way to restore this balance in the body.  It is a self-healing practice that enhances health, promotes relaxation, calms the mind, and increases well-being.  It is widely used in China as a form of preventative medicine, as well as a form of treatment for many diseases and conditions.

Making what is referred to as a “Qi-field” is a very important element in Qigong’s effectiveness to both heal the body and create a more stable and calm mind.  Students often share that they have profound spiritual and emotional experiences whilst engaged in practices after Master Liu has made the Qi-field. “This comes as close to ‘Bliss’ as I have ever encountered” says one student.

Whether one desires to improve their health, increase their energy levels, expand their awareness or intuition or feel good about themselves and the world they live in, despite what is happening around us, this retreat will offer so many valuable opportunities to learn about improving overall health and most especially how to achieve and maintain what Jianshe refers to as a “Sunshine Mind”. eal from an illness or dis-ease or improve their happiness quotient, learning Qigong principals will surely improve one’s life.
