Learn about the powerful system of healing and energy medicine (from China) The art and science of using gentle movements and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy (Qi).

 

Qigong practice leads to better health and vitality and a quiet state of mind.

What QIGONG means
Means ‘move (ment)-aware’ and is an easy-to-learn and effective daily practice where, by repeating a structured and conscious program of movement, you build a healthy mind in a healthy body. Your Qi (life) energy will flow and the movement will make your body strong and flexible; it will stimulate your brain and strengthen your immune system.

With practice you will come to experience your body and observe your thoughts and your emotions, connecting with your inner strength. Daoheart Qi Gong focuses on exercises involving slow rhythmic movements which induce and combine with a meditative but alert state of mind, but it is the spirit that is especially engaged through its practice.

The retreat is a personal process and therefore suitable for beginners and experienced.

"Life changing experience!"

I've been to retreats in the past but this was the most amazing experience I've ever had. Peace and kindness were the marks of the days. The yoga and the fellowship were great, and the food was simply delicious. Can't wait to go back.
