A personal message from Master Mingtong Gu

The world is now entering another time of transition as we are entering the fall season.  We are moving from cautiously remaining-in-place to a state of "what's next?"

Are you ready to continue to show up?  And, in what way?

Will you show up with fear and ignorance ...or care-full confidence?

Will you venture out feeling anxious or closed off to stay safe ... or full of compassionate courage?

Do you anticipate tightly guarding your heart as you experience a renewed bit of freedom ... or will you be able to keep your heart open and full of loving kindness, no matter what comes your way?

As we cultivate the deeper alignment of the energy throughout our body, mind, and heart, we can be aware of our choices and also the inner energy patterns from contraction to open flow.  We learn that when energy is flowing our experience of life moves from surviving to thriving to feelings of deep fulfillment.  When the energy is contracting we can also work with awareness, intention, and the transformation processes to increase our capacity to open the flow again.

During times of crisis and worry like this, it’s even more important to continue (or begin!) your Qigong practices to keep energy flowing.  Rather than allowing stress to take root in your body, you can learn to embrace daily challenges with self-care and self-compassion to make a shift from fearfulness to care-fullness.

Recent polls tell us that many in our community are experiencing a lack or depletion of energy and are concerned about keeping their immune systems healthy right now.  And, the aim of The Chi Center is to be a light in this storm — to help you find connection instead of isolation; and learn to turn worry and anxiety into thoughtful care; transform depression and a sense of loss into compassion and knowing; and transmute distress into courage.

Through the practices of Wisdom Healing Qigong you will learn that when we awaken and open more energy flow, we increase our resilience, the baseline of our health, accelerate healing, and increase our capacity to fulfill our life with more connection and joy.  

During these upcoming Retreats we will learn to embody all the fundamental practices of Wisdom Healing Qigong.  Every morning we will practice the Awaken Vitality Method. We will continue to integrate the benefits of Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down practice, which allows us to go beyond our limited and contracted experiences of physical life, cultivating the natural openness, connection, and flow of spiritual energy.

Sound Healing and basic Pure Consciousness practices will support us in activating more love, compassion, creativity, confidence, and courage.  These cornerstone qualities of your inner life are the foundation for thriving and a deep sense of life fulfillment.  These are key essentials during these particularly challenging times.

Develop Your Resilience

Through all Practices of Wisdom Healing Qigong

Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, crisis, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress — such as trauma, family and relationship troubles, serious health challenges, or workplace and financial stressors.

As much as resilience involves recovery after times of crisis, we envision resilience as something more — "bouncing forward" (instead of bouncing back) in the midst of intensity and challenge. This happens often for resilient people — instead of waiting till the crisis is over, hoping to return back to where we began, we grow our capacities in the midst of the challenge AND end up in a new place, having developed new understanding, more compassion, and deeper self-awareness.  

Resilience is not about being tough, powering through, or putting on a brave face. In fact, the opposite may be true ... we may actually need to give ourselves a time-out to fully experience and accept our emotions, rest deeply, and transform the energy of stress in our system so it does not stay contracted and remain blocked, stuck, or stagnant.

Online Retreat Graduates Want You To Know...

"The Chi Center’s online retreat greatly exceeded my expectations. Having been to previous retreats, I thought it would be a reflection of the retreat experience. But it was not a mere reflection. It was a full immersion. If you have never done a Wisdom Healing Qigong retreat or would like to do one and are not able to make the trip to New Mexico, this is an amazing option.

As with onsite retreats, my experience during the online retreat was rich and deep, challenging and ”profoundly beneficial.“ ...the retreat, through Master Mingtong, the teaching staff, support staff and chi field, bestowed a thousand blessings upon me. After a year away from participating in online courses, this retreat was like coming home. Coming home to Wisdom Healing Qigong, coming home to my body (after an extremely challenging year), coming home to an amazing community of practitioners. And coming home to the wisdom that flows freely through them all. 

Pamela J, Carmel, CA

"This has been a wonderful experience. I wondered how it would work and have been greatly surprised by how effective it is. Master Mingtong’s energy comes through as well as the energy from the Kiva. I loved having the casual experience of being at home with the extended relationships on the screen. I feel most supported, guided and connected with Master Mingtong and the group chi field.

I’ve been to at least eight in-person retreats and this was surprisingly deep and just as powerful as being there in person. Plus I had my own special comfortable chairs and pillows to support me, not to mention my own bed and bathroom. I will do it again. Thank you for offering this. I loved it."

Answers to Common Questions

Are you ready to experience direct energetic transmissions and teachings from an acclaimed Qigong Master?

Will I be able to experience the chi field from home?

Yes! Chi is everywhere, and as we join together in a beautiful group dynamic we then generate a local and non-local chi field, which will have a powerful effect on the progress of each individual in the group (including you!). Together we make this possible! We are ready to co-create healing miracles with you and we hope you are ready too.  

Who are Online Retreats designed to serve?
Online Retreats are open to everyone – no matter what your level of health and wellbeing, and no matter what previous experience you have (or don't have) with the practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong. These Retreats (although immersive) are gentle and perfect for anyone of any age, who is interested in enhancing and improving their health and wellbeing.
I'm not very tech savvy, what do I need to join the retreat.

Other than an openness to improve your personal health and wellbeing, you will also require a stable high-speed internet connection, as well as some space and time to dedicate to yourself. We have a team all ready to support you!  You can contact our online technology team via email at TechSupport@ChiCenter.com and they'll reply as promptly as possible.

How do the Online Retreats work?

▸▸ You’ll connect online with our Zoom video meeting from the Lotus Kiva where all Retreats are held – in person and online – so that you can learn and practice with Master Mingtong Gu and receive his transmission in the non-local chi field. His certified teachers will support and guide you in some practice sessions from their homes. The practice sessions involve gentle movements to free up your energy, as well as sound healings, and visualizations.

▸▸  All times are listed in the US Mountain time zone.  We begin each full day around 8:30am and end each evening around 8:30pm. (Times may change.) There are approximately 4 hours of break time every day. You can participate according to your personal schedule and time zone, and you will continue to have access to all the video recordings for 1-4 weeks after the live sessions end. We suggest you participate live AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, even if only a half-day at a time due to possible time zone differences.

▸▸ The live video broadcast will be hosted on Zoom, which is a two-way communication technology free to all viewers. It's best to have a good internet connection, a webcam, and microphone. This is the best long-distance support you can receive from Master Mingtong and the team!

What is the schedule and flow for each day*?

Day 1:   Afternoon Session 1:00pm-6:00pm; Dinner 6:00pm-7:30pm; Evening Session 7:30pm-8:30pm

Days 2-6:   Morning Session 8:30am-12:30pm; Lunch 12:30pm-2:00pm; Afternoon Session 2:00pm-6:00pm; Dinner 6:00pm-7:30pm; Evening Session 7:30pm-8:30pm
