About us

Health, well-being, and longevity can be achieved through cultivating and mastering qi. Every style of qigong — including tai chi and yoga — shares a basis in essential principles. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to awaken and refine natural healing and intuitive abilities associated with the most mysterious and neglected aspect of being: the eternal nature, or universal self.

Starting with the ancient Three Treasures, the leaders will support you in revealing your natural inner power to yourself, through the 9 Phases of Cultivation and Mastery of Qi: Discover, Gather, Circulate, Purify, Direct, Conserve, Store, Transform, and Dissolve. Whether your focus is to heal yourself, help others, merge with nature, maximize intuition and creativity, or work toward inner peace, these nine phases, with their roots in ancient tradition, are tools with extraordinary power to release your inner potential.

The 9 Phases Qigong is distilled from Dr. Roger Jahnke’s book, The Healing Promise of Qi, Chinese medical theory, and philosophies of Taoism and Buddhism.

Recommended reading: Jahnke, The Healing Promise of Qi and The Healer Within.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
