Eight Extraordinary Vessels Qigong with Master Liu He

July 18, 2023 - July 20, 2023

REGISTRATION CLOSES Saturday, July 1, 2023

IN-PERSON Retreat for our July sessions!
We are planning to gather together in person this summer at the Alton L. Collins Retreat Center! We look forward to gathering with you!
The facilities provide a lodge-type feel with many outdoor spaces, a large lobby, library, and more!
Magnificent western red cedars grace the grounds. The natural forest setting has been preserved. Trails take you through the woods and along the streams that meander around the grounds. Their holistic chef makes sure your meals nourish your mind and body so you are able to focus on retreat.
The Alton L. Collins Retreat Center is dedicated to offering a safe, quality environment for growth and reflection for service in the world.  The center is nestled in a Pacific northwestern forest surrounded by majestic, moss-covered cedar, spruce, fir, hemlock, and big leaf maple.  The natural environment supports ferns, trillium, and salmonberry bushes covering the forest floor.

Join Master Liu for this EXTRAordinary retreat!

These eight vessels begin at the moment of conception, create an energy field within which the embryo grows, and ultimately give rise to the meridian system of our bodies. Practicing Eight Extraordinary Vessels Qigong accesses healing at the level of our prenatal Qi, similar to our DNA, while bringing us back to a time of wholeness before birth, and linking us to our present life for developing our potential.
