Upcoming Retreats

Chi Nei Tsang 1 Retreat

October 8-11, 2018

pagosa08Join us for four days of soaking in the natural healing hot springs along the San Juan River in Pagosa Springs, Colorado while practicing meditation, qigong, and discovering teachings that will restore your health and inner peace.

During the retreat we will be offering a complete course in Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals along with many other Taoist teachings.

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is not only a body therapy technique, but a lineage practice involving training in energy cultivation (qigong) and alchemical Taoist meditations to heal the body, mind and spirit.

Our days will begin with Qigong outside, by the San Juan river. Chi Nei Tsang class will be held in the conference room at The Springs. Our classroom looks out over the “mother pool”.  We will move consciously through each of the organ systems, learning how to access the knowledge of the body with our hearts and our hands.

After class, take advantage of the 22 individually temperatured pools of naturally hot therapeutic mineral water situated right alongside the San Juan river. Pagosa Hot Springs is the deepest in the world! Guests of The Springs have 24-hour access to the pools.

End your day with Tao Yin; Taoist yoga, specifically designed to open the meridians through stretching and breath work promoting deep and restful sleep.
