About us

Join Master Mingtong Gu for a week dedicated to healing and balancing body, mind, heart, and spirit through the powerful movement, sound, and visualization practices of qigong. This retreat is a great way to take a vacation for yourself, journey inward with deep nourishment, and recharge with renewed energy, clarity, and vitality. Qigong supports you in releasing limitations and expanding into new possibilities for balance, wellness, deep fulfillment, and lasting joy. By bringing the mind back into the body, this technique and teaching of awakened consciousness not only can be life changing, but also a gift for lifelong health and happiness.

Whether you are addressing specific conditions such as cancer, Parkinson's, diabetes, Lyme's disease, immune deficiencies, addiction, chronic pain, or trauma, or are working with patients with these conditions; whether you need to relax and rejuvenate from excessive stress; whether you want to support others in their healing journey and/or deepen your own understanding and practice of qigong, the retreat environment is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to tap your deepest potential for healing and joy. By participating in this healing retreat, you can:

· Learn to clear and balance the emotions so that deeper healing can occur on all levels

· Develop a quiet and creative mind to most effectively realize healing

· Learn the ultimate methods to build and transmit chi (energy) for healing of self and others (called FaChi)

· Organize a chi field with others to accelerate healing

· Learn about profound theories and practices of energy healing to better understand and activate our healing capacity

There will be a celebratory Christmas Eve dinner in the Esalen Lodge.

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

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.
