Zhineng Qigong Retreat in Hainan, China
Do you want to deepen your Qigong experience? Get out of your familiar patterns and focus on a restored balance in body and mind? Then we are happy to invite you to this two-week Qigong retreat at the Hexianju Qigong Centre in southern China, on the tropical island of Hainan.
We will be guided by teacher Jianshe and teacher Ning, both greatly appreciated teachers, who teach around the world.
The lessons at the Qigong Center are a special experience. You interrupt everyday life with all your habits and will be taken into a new world. You will be invited to get in touch with your inner world.
The purpose of the lessons and exercises is to develop your own healing power so you can take charge of your own well-being in order to become the best version of yourself. Shake yourself up. This completely different and new environment helps you to achieve this.
YOUR INNER WORLD IS REFLECTED IN YOUR BODY AND OUTER WORLD
In this retreat you focus on cultivating the good qualities in your inner world in order to emphasize them. You don’t have to learn anything new, on the contrary, you are going to unlearn something. Relaxing your mind and releasing stress, that’s what it’s all about. Let your mind settle down and relax your body and then your true nature – the best version of yourself – will naturally emerge. It is that part of yourself that is unchangeable: your consciousness, a large inner field of peace and unlimited potential. It is in this part where lies your wisdom, inner peace and contentment, where you are whole and complete: body and mind are in balance, you get better into contact with what is good for you. It helps you to resolve stress and to tackle (health) challenges better.
Many of us often feel victims of their health, circumstances and thinking patterns. We are so used in finding solutions to challenges with the help of a doctor, therapist or a friend. Teacher Jianshe and Teacher Ning teach you to focus and to trust on your own creating and healing powers. You can balance yourself again. Their lessons are therefore a wonderful addition to a training or a therapy you follow yourself, or the guidance you offer in your work with clients.
This Qigong trip offers both the beginner and the more advanced Qigong practitioner an excellent opportunity to (further) deepen your Zhineng Qigong practice. The natural simplicity of these profound lessons makes this training accessible to everyone. By opening our hearts and minds this will be a special holiday.
We at Qi Friends are looking forward to this inspiring journey and would like to invite you to come with us.
Teacher Jianshe has been teaching in Qigong for 30 years. He followed his education in the early 1990s by Dr. Pang Ming in the famous medicine-free hospital, the Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Center. He arrived there at a low point in his life, when his own health and circumstances were very bad. From his own experience, he knows how Qigong can be life-changing. Also during his teaching career, he has often experienced how Qigong can bring people back to health and balance. He opened a Qigong Centre with his team on Hainan Island December 2003.
“In 2003 we only landed on the island with luggage. We didn’t know anyone on the island and we didn’t know where to live. We followed our intuition and fully trusted our choice. And now we live in our own Qigong center. “
Teacher Jianshe also teaches in Europe, North and South America, Australia and Africa.
‘I believe that all of us can achieve our wishes! Qigong is new life, Yiyuanti is our heart, Qigong is a journey to trust ourselves, find ourselves and being ourselves’
Teacher Jianshe explanes a lot about how to live from your true self – from your heart. Within Qigong we call it Yi Yuan Ti, that part of yourself where you intuitively know what is good for you and where you are connected to the other. He helps you to get in touch with and to trust your true self. Be like a child again and follow your enthusiasm and authentic self, that is his message. He also uses level 1 exercises of Zhineng Qigong: Lift Qi Up Pour Qi Down, La Qi and sound meditation “eng” Get in touch again with your inner strength and balance.
Teacher Ning has 30 years of experience as a Qigong teacher and healer. He worked for six years at the Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Center (the famous medicine-free hospital). In his lessons, he uses his knowledge of and experience with various Qigong methods. He has a deep understanding of the causes of illness and the way in which illness and imbalance can be solved in body and mind. He likes to share this knowledge and experience with you, as well as exercises that you can use to get started.
Teacher Ning gives clear explanations and the exercises are simple, beneficial and effective. It’s great to practice with Teacher Ning. His gentleness and accessibility create openness and an atmosphere of trust.
You will be warmly welcomed in the Qigong Centre. It is extremely pleasant to stay here. The Centre is located on the coast in a small village in the middle of a palm tree forest. It overlooks a small lake where the birds visit and waddle. Ten minutes of cycling brings you to the beach.
The temperature in March is pleasantly warm. Every meal in the Centre is prepared with love and attention, the bedrooms are comfortable and each has its own bathroom with toilet. The staff is friendly and helpful. In addition to a large classroom inside, you can also practice on the roof, where you are overlooking the palm trees of a coconut grove and a lake where cranes perch.
This journey starts at Schiphol Airport, especially if we go together on the same flight. We can meet each other there and get acquainted. On the day of arrival on Hainan Island, we are picked up by members of the Qigong Centre team.
During the retreat, lessons are given in the morning and afternoon. At lunchtime there is a large break in which you can take your rest or go to the beach for example. In the evening there is an opportunity to practice together and end the day.
There will be a rest day on Sunday. You can go on your own to the beach or, for example, to Coconut Farm, which is nearby. This also applies to the last Saturday, on which we consider the possibility of making an excursion together.
