Chi Nei Tsang 4 day Fundamentals Retreat
October 26-29, 2022
Join us for four full days at Mescal Canyon Retreat Center in Clarkedale, Arizona
During the retreat we will be offering a complete course in Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals along with many other Taoist teachings. Learn a new massage modality based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, enjoy daily qigong practice and meditations in a group and discover teachings that will restore your health and inner peace.
Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is not only a body therapy technique, but a lineage practice involving training in energy cultivation (qigong) and alchemical Taoist meditations to heal the body, mind and spirit.
Our days will begin at 9am with Qigong outside. Back in the classroom we will move consciously through each of the organ systems, learning how to access the knowledge of the body with our hearts and our hands. Caryn will offer additional special lectures and star practice under the night sky of Arizona.
