Qi Gong ( Hun Yuan ) Retreat Autumn 2017

Hun Yuan ( Eternal Circle ) Qi Gong Retreat

Southern France 23-28th September 2017


Bouisse 1

5 days of high level instruction in Body Control and Energy Work. Learn a comprehensive mind body exercise as epitomized by the Hun Yuan method. Live well in your body and create a solid base for your ongoing health and strength, super charge your existing health regime and learn how to use the body as vehicle for change.

Qi Gong uses various methods of rhythmic and fluid motion to effect a dramatic release of tension, increased joint mobility, deeper breathing and greater all round flexibility. It gives me great pleasure to announce this September trip.

Due to the nature of teaching in a small group setting, quite dramatic shifts of awareness can take place. Standing meditative practice linked to nature and natural rhythms will be included.

There are only limited places on this retreat

  Flights are from Stanstead to Carcassonne, are very cost effective when booked early. Venue is one hour into the Corbiere Hills. Transport to and from the airport can be arranged.


We will be working for the standpoint of creating balanced an open structure. Emphasis will be on the anatomical requirements and adjustments that help the flow of the body's innate life force ( Qi ) personal help will be given to those wishing to have feedback regarding structural restriction plus advice on personal practice.


We provide instruction and advice within a holiday retreat setting.  Participants can learn a short Qi Gong form that they can integrate into their daily lives. Groups are kept small. .


Our French retreats are held in the Corbiere region of Languedoc. In the heart of Cathar Country.  This deeply historic area has a great atmosphere conductive to practice.

Realtaoism Workshops and Retreats

Develop your practice

For most of us body language is something we are unaware of until our bodies protest and demand our attention, leading to stress, illness or injury and undermining our ability to lead our lives.

Practising a Taoist Life Art teaches us to unlearn our bodies unskilful first language, so allowing its natural receptivity, intelligence and responsiveness to emerge.

As this process unfolds we will learn a new kind of body language, a new way of using our minds and bodies and a new kind of fluency and expressiveness which cannot be captured in words alone.

Foundation practises are taught in our ongoing weekly Classes and in a more concentrated form in Workshops and Retreats.

Our expertise lies in ensuring that your journey toward bodily clarity, strength and expressiveness unfolds at a pace that is absolutely right for you.

Our track-record is a testament to our proven ability to tailor the teaching of Taoist Life Arts in a way that precisely addresses your individual needs as they change and evolve.
