Here we come again with the third edition of our retreats in the wonderful natural area of lake maggiore!
This retreat consists in 7 days of full immersion in the ancient Daoist pratice of Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Meditation.
PURPOSE OF THE RETREAT
The purpose of this retreat is to work on activating our energy body and to open to the natural growing energy of spring.
In the practice of Tai Chi we learn to perceive our energy, to cultivate it and to move it trough our whole body in harmony.
With this work we aim to increase our ability to work harmoniously with the various forces we have at the various levels of our being and in this way be able to come to express more fully the potential of our nature.
The retreat will provide an essential understanding of Daoist practices and of how to apply them to your specific condition for the pursuit of an harmonious and empowered life.
TAI CHI and QI GONG
These methods were developed in ancient China in order to heal the physical, emotional and mental bodies and to awaken their latent potential.
In those times many sages investigated the mysteries of the universe and observed the harmonic principles that govern the natural world.
They realized that by unifying with these principles it was possible to lengthen life and access the great wisdom that governs the universe. For this purpose they developed methods such as Qi Gong and Tai Chi.
These practices were transmitted to us by our teacher in the temple of the Five Immortals in the mountains of Wudang, China.
The retreat is suitable for all levels of pratictioners, from who wishes to explore something new, to who has a background from other types of practices to who already is experienced in tai chi and qi gong.
