Release the full potential you have within

You will learn to unite the mind, the body and the breath through carefully planned exercise and meditation.

 Changing your posture is a way to alter your emotions and self-image. We will teach you to move smoothly with stability and grace and we will do so in such a way that your thinking will follow. Once you learn to move calmly, positively and fluidly, your mind and your emotions will follow.

You can choose to begin and end on whatever days suit you best. We do suggest arriving on one of the rest days – Saturday or Wednesday – so as to settle in and be ready to begin at 6.00AM the next day. For an idea of what you will learn through following this course, check our sample packages.

Sunday

Tong Ling Chi Kung

6:00 am - 7:00 am

Tong Ling Chi Kung

Sunday 6:00 am - 7:00 am
‘Chi’ (Qi) is a natural energy which pervades all things. Chinese medical theory is based on the understanding that if the body’s Chi is balanced, clean and circulates smoothly,  health and vitality will result.

Chi Kung is the practice of charging the body with fresh, balanced Chi, eliminating stale Chi and circulating Chi through all of the meridians and to every cell of the body. The location of the mountain retreat was chosen carefully for the exceptional quality of its Chi. It is thus a perfect place to practice Chi Kung.

Sun Frost White Crane Internal Art

Sun Frost White Crane Internal Art

Sunday 7:00 am - 7:50 am
Usually referred to as “Shuang Yang” for short, this is the rarely taught soft form of the Shaolin White Crane art. It looks similar to Tai Chi but follows the Buddhist Shaolin tradition.

This is a very relaxed, fluid art which develops suppleness, mobility, calmness and balance. It energizes the tendons and charges the body with ‘Chi’. It massages, cleans and strengthens the internal organs making us healthier and more resistant to disease.

Meditation Lessons

Meditation Lessons

Sunday 8:15 am - 9:15 am
The meditations which we teach include

  • Chi Kung focusing on circulating the body’s Chi microcosmic orbit

  • Relaxing the whole body

  • Fostering internal awareness

  • Improving vitality and life energy


These can be combined with natural or reverse abdominal breathing. Full moon meditations take advantage of the pure Yin energy which emanates from the moon at midnight (the most Yin hour) when it is full (the moon’s most Yin phase). These special meditations give us an amazing charge but are best practised under supervision, at least to start with! The complement to the full moon meditations is the practice of Chi Kung just at sunrise on the day of the new moon, taking advantage of yang energy.
