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.

Dr. Liu Dong  will be offering  a journey into the deep teachings found within the Ma Wang Dui tombs.

Ma Wang Dui Birds Qigong is the most primitive method of Daoist health. You will learn to imitate the breathing and movements of seven species of birds in order to regulate the seven internal organs of the human body (five zang-yin organs (liver, lungs, spleen, heart, and kidneys,  plus the brain and gallbladder).
Chinese medicine believes that brain-dominated emotions lead the body’s five internal organs and the gallbladder leads the decision, which is the root of the emotion.
The Qigong method’s movements will focus on supporting the brain and gallbladder to treat the five internal organs and diseases.

Chan Meditation will also be presented. Chan Meditation is a personal internal journey, utilizing breath and visualization to renew your perspective!

Master Liu He will be offering: Eight Extra Ordinary Vessels Qigong. 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.
