About The Teacher

Nature, traveling, exploring and discovering inner and outer space have always been important elements of my life. After many years of practicing yoga and meditation, which have certainly touched me deeply, I found that I was still searching for something and felt there was so much more to discover. My Zhineng Qigong journey started in spring 2010, when it helped me to quickly recover from a lower back problem.

That same year, the desire to dive more deeply into understanding what it is led me to China. Since then, I have spent a few months each year in China, doing intense practice and study with different Zhineng Qigong and Taiji teachers, and I joined the enriching experience of a full-time, half-year teacher training program in 2013 in the beautiful Wudangshan Mountains.

I started sharing this powerful, transformative method in classes and workshops throughout Germany and in beautiful places in Europe thereafter, which enables me to connect my passion for exploring nature and traveling together with my newfound passion for Zhineng Qigong. Zhineng Qigong has taught me to connect with the deep inner source of health, inspiration and joy, to feel grounded, and re-connected with my heart.

Regular practice, study and exploration have taught me how to cultivate mind, body and life energy, to experience the true nature of all phenomena, including the body as pure energy, and to feel harmoniously alive, strong and at home in my body.

It is a wonderful tool, which can help you to learn how to calm down, to relax on a deep level, be present in the moment and accept and release attachments. A space for inner silence and awareness opens. The body and mind become naturally healthy. For me, it is a life-transforming tool, which teaches us to surf the ocean of life, at times clear, still, and gently rolling and at other times rough and volatile.

The study and practice of Zhineng Qigong has become a never-ending journey, which is increasingly more and more opening and profoundly interconnective.It's like climbing the highest mountain; the higher you climb, the farther and clearer the view becomes and the deeper the contact you make with your true self.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane
