QIGONG JOURNEY TO WUDANG from September 1 to September 15, 2016

Wudang shan has been the destination of Daoist pilgrims for centuries. This beautiful and impressive region is a nature reserve and counts among the UNESCO world heritages. 

We stay at Zixiao gong, the Palace of the Purple Cloud, known as the place where taiji quan was founded. We are instructed by a Daoist master and are free to listen to the recitations and witness the ceremonies in the temple. We will share the tasty vegetarian meals of the monks and nuns who reside in the temple. These two weeks will take you beyond space and time, and lay a foundation for further qigong-practice on your own upon returning t. Two nights will be spent in Beijing. 

Price: 1750 EURO. The price includes course fee, accommodation, transfer to and from the airport, and food. Pocket money and flight tickets are not included.

6-24 April, 2016

We will meditate, practice qigong and go trekking to deepen our understanding of these spiritual realms. We will get to meet Daoist masters as well as Buddhist Lamas. In addition, we will savor samples of traditional Chinese culture, such as lessons in cooking, calligraphy and music. 

The goals of our journey are the provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan in western China. In Sichuan we visit Qingcheng shan, the mountain where Zhang Daoling founded the religion of Daoism, almost two millennia ago. We will live at Shangqing gong, the Palace of Highest Clarity, among Daoist nuns and monks. There we will practice qigong and go trekking in the mountains. All meals at the temple are vegetarian. 

After having spent six nights at Qingcheng shan we go by flight to Shangrila, a Tibetan town in the Yunnan province located at an altitude of more than 3000 meters. In Shangrila, we visit a the biggest Tibetan buddhist temple outside Tibet, whereupon we continue to Feilai si. From Feilai si we enjoy a splendid view of the famed mountain summit Meili xueshan (Kawa karpo in Tibetan), 6700 meters high, renowned for being one of the world’s most beautiful sights on earth. The area is a destination of pilgrimage for Tibetan Buddhists, who perform ritual circumabulations at the foot of the mountain, and in addition pay visits to he Mingyong glacier, where we also will go trekking. In the area, there are plenty Buddhist temples, and one cloister, for us to visit. 

From Shangrila we take the flight to Kunming, a city located at an altitude of 2000 meters, where we in the mornings practice qigong in the park. There will be opportunities to go to hot springs and receive revitalizing massage treatments. Three nights are to be spent in Kunming. 

The entire journey lasts for 18 days. Two nights are spent in Beijing, one upon arrival, the other before returning.
