About us

This is not just a Qigong Teacher Training. Your life will be transformed after the 30 days and you will learn all the skills you need to teach Qigong and for your own self realisation – to live a happy and fulfilling life.


I have put my life’s learning, teaching and experience together to create a deeply and a profound life changing experience using the art of Qigong and to teach others how they too can share this treasure. I have created a 200 hours residential Qigong Teacher Training retreat to be held in Ubud, Bali from 28 June 2019 – 27 July 2019.

There is no other course in the world offering this particular training and it is not only a Qigong Teacher Training but a vehicle in how to create a better life, one of connection, peace, stillness, fulfilment and contentment.

This 30 day retreat experience will revolutionise your life. Your life will not be the same afterwards and it will give you an awakened outlook on how you can live your life. A very different life, one without stress and worry, one without feeling disconnection and isolation, one without needing to fit into the world, and one of freedom.

During the 30 day retreat you will experience much more than just Qigong, it’s about our whole lives, our dreams, our aspirations, our journey, our adventures, our excitement, our hearts, our curiosity, our passions and our purpose in life. This retreat is about self growth and discovery. And this retreat is about creating and having a better life and learning the skills to pass that on to others.

 Come and be apart of my family and the Forest Rock Taiji and Qigong school community. Come and make friends with others who have common goals and desires. Come and learn how to live a more fulfilling life and come and learn how to be free.

Be free. Be happy.

With love,

Pete C





The thing about Peter's teaching is that he embodies his teaching in his being, and that sincerity of practice is rare but very powerful. I am very grateful for having had the chance to meet and spend a few days with him. Cheers, Mark (Doc)

Directions

TRAVEL & VISA 

Please be proactive and learn about visa requirements particular to your own home country in advance of actual travel as possible. 

To enter Indonesia, your passport must have a minimum of 6 months remaining validity from the date of your prospective DEPARTURE FROM Bali. You do need a return or onwards flight out of Bali already booked before entering Bali. 

The standard Visa on Arrival (VOA) permits a stay of only 30 days in Bali – the count of 30 days includes the day you land and the day you depart. 

AIRPORT IMMIGRATIONS & CUSTOMS  

Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport (also known as Denpasar International Airport) is located in southern Bali, 13 km south of Denpasar.  
Upon arrival at the International terminal in Denpasar, you will be directed to Immigration officials where you will queue in either the Visa On Arrival line (and purchase your visa for US$35), or directly in the second line to clear immigration. This can be a very lengthy process and a great time to practice patience and observation. After clearing immigration, retrieve your bags and then go through Customs and baggage x-rays. This is usually a very simple though time consuming process. There are ATMs in the Arrivals Hall and money-changers after Customs. 

TRANSPORT 

You are able to arrange transportation directly from the airport through your accommodations. If you are staying at Ananda, arrange directly with their reception and they will send drivers to pick you, simply inform them of your arrival time.

If you prefer to arrange your own transportation upon arrival, you can negotiate your own rates with the many taxi drivers available at the airport exit or use the airport taxi counter with fixed rates. The trip takes approximately 1.5 hours and will give you a glimpse of some of Bali’s towns, temples, and gorgeous landscapes. 
 
Always confirm the price before you accept the ride. Negotiating is customary. Rates from the airport should be 300.000rp - 350.000 IDR
