  Retreat at Home

2020 has become the year of re invention and finding new ways to be at Home. I am offering you a fun option to ‘Retreat at Home’ during our usual Colorado October CNT Retreat time. I have divided the full 4 days of retreat into 4 individual stand alone sections. You may take any or all of them. Beginners to Chi Nei Tsang must take day 1 on October 5. Those of you who have taken a 4 day CNT Retreat or the 3 day CNT class may take any of the 4 days as a review. And as you know there is always some new information presented in my classes.


(NCBTMB is offering 8 units of distance learning for each day, so check with your state to be sure that this will count toward your LMT certification this year)


‘Retreat at Home’ dates are Oct 5-8, as was planned. I will be teaching from home in the Pacific Northwest. Our days will begin at 9am (pacific time) with Qigong, and then move to the classroom for lecture and hands on practice. You will need to have a partner to work with during the hands on practice sessions. This can be a friend who comes in for that time, or a person who is taking the retreat day with you in full. We will take 90 minute lunch breaks, and 2 hour dinner breaks. The day will end with Tao Yin and meditation.

I will email all of the daily outlines and handouts, and an herb bundle to use if you are registered for day 4, October 8.

You will receive a specific Zoom link for each day that you are registered. Be sure that your device allows you to be seen by the host. (some computer screens do not have cameras, so check ahead of time. Using a phone is do able, but not ideal) This will be a fun way to connect.


You will need room for Qigong practice, a massage table or floor space for CNT practice with a partner, and floor space for evening Tao Yin and meditation.


So, pack your bags and clear your calendar to enjoy a ‘Retreat at Home’. Clear your calendar and stock the kitchen with your favorite foods. Get a dry brush and some Epsom salts for an evening soak.


I look forward to sharing 4 days of healing and connection with you
