Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-31, 2011
Running Springs (Lake Arrowhead), California

This annual ZY Qigong retreat offers a space and time to either begin your experience with ZY Qigong or to go deeper under the guidance of Grandmaster Xu.
"To achieve ultimate relaxation, all three systems in a person need to be integrated: physical, energy and mental.
You have achieved relaxation physically when energy flows easily in your body.
You have achieved relaxation in your energy when there is no resistance in your energy flow.
You have achieved relaxation mentally when the mind stops.

At this five-day retreat, you may learn to stop the busy mind."

- Grandmaster Xu Mingtang
What is it?

Located in the beautiful and serene setting of the Los Angeles mountains, this retreat offers an all-inclusive weekend of relaxation, meditation, Qigong learning and practice, led by one of the greatest Qigong masters with us today, Grandmaster Xu.

For those new to Qigong (or new to ZYQ or ZY Qigong), the retreat provides an opportunity to experience first-hand the healing, informational, and transformative power of Qigong and the Grandmaster. We will have Qigong and Tai Chi instructors on hand to offer optional complimentary sessions throughout the day.
