Tai Chi Wudang Sword – New Year Retreat

Dec 29th 2018 – Jan 3rd 2019

This New Year we invite you to experience a six-day full immersion in the Sahara desert dedicated to the practice of Daoist meditation, Qi Gong and Wudang Tai Chi sword.

=====================================================

ABOUT THE METHOD

The Seven Stars Sword from the Wudang Mountains is one of the jewels of our transmission. It is an ancient method developed by the founding master Lu Dong Bin that unifies martial arts with Daoist ritual magic. The form imitates the movement of the stars and galaxies to embody their power and wisdom.

The practice of sword combined with the Qi Gong and Daoist meditation explores the profound forces that compose the inner and outer universe. These methods were passed down to us by our master in The Five Immortals Temple at the Wudang Mountains in China.

AIM OF THE RETREAT

The purpose of the retreat is to deepen the connection with ones inner nature and with ones true purpose and to empower the mind to pursue it with clarity and determination. The desert is a powerful teacher in its silence and at night it reveals the sky with clarity. As the sword represents the clear vision, the practice manifests the power to cut between the true and the false and to stay aligned to ones true path.

OUR JOURNEY

Tai Chi sword in the Sahara desert is the result of a long journey to find the perfect location for an amazing retreat. When we entered the desert, we were mesmerised by the feelings it awakened in us. The silence, the sky and the land transmitted an unspeakable and ancient power. After spending one night among the sand dunes and the stars, with the sky lit by mysterious silent flashes we knew that we had found what we where looking for.

Prácticas Daoístas

Es en mi creencia que las prácticas Daoistas contienen respuestas a las cuestiones que, especialmente en este momento, son impelentes para nosotros como individuos y como colectividad.

A través del estudio y de la práctica es posible abrir nuestro entendimiento, despejar la nube de confusión y ganar fuerza y conciencia para perseguir nuestro verdadero camino.

“Esas obstrucciones, de cualesquiera calidades y tipos,  todas se pueden romper.”

“Ambas cosas, ser y no-ser, tienen el mismo
origen, aunque distinto nombre.
Su identidad es el misterio.
Misterio entre misterio,
la puerta de toda maravilla.” Dao de Jing I.
