Ren Xue - Knowledge of Human Life

Based on contemporary Chinese wisdom culture, modern philosophy and science Yuan Tze creates a solid life-cultivation method - Ren Xue. His ambition is to capture all aspects of human life in a holistic system based on the relationship between man, nature and the universe and to illustrate how everything in the universe is part of the same whole - a totality.

Yuan Qigong - A Qigong System for Modern Days

Yuan Qigong represents an innovative thinking in the Qigong World. With its roots in the profound Chinese wisdom teachings, martial arts, modern sports and natural science, Yuan Qigong was specifically created to meet needs of the modern time. Yuan Qigong is unique and innovative, a breakthrough based on cross-health disciplines with the potential to effectively support human development.

Yuan Qigong is pleasant to practice, easy to learn. It is effective; it will produce results.

The retreat consists of two parts

Part 1: 26 - 30 June 2018.

These days are especially for those who want to attend a shorter time, attend for the first time or want to learn how to train Yuan Qigong in a good way. Yuan Tze participates in the last two days. Part 1 lays the groundwork for participation in Part 2.

This is an ideal opportunity to learn the first three Yuan Qigong methods (Tian Yuan, Di Yuan and Ren Yuan).

In addition, details about Qi, Qi field, Qi field building, awareness, Shen and heart qualities (Xin) are learned.

The fourth method Xia Yuan, which improves the body's organs-quality, will be taught in a comprehensive manner.

In part 2, the exercises are deepened, thus creating a greater understanding of Qigong and how to live your life in a good way.

You who participated in the retreat earlier in 2015 - 2017 can if you want to skip Part 1.

Part 2: 30 June - 8 July 2018

Part 2 involves a deepening of the Yuan Gong training. The body is physically strengthened; circulation and mobility are improved. Qi - our life-force or energy is improved. Consciousness becomes calm and clear.

News - Working on patterns with the LING YUAN method

From early childhood we learn to melt into the environment, create acceptance to get a positive response, not to create dissatisfaction. We develop patterns that we eventually apply automatically and habitually in our lives. That we habitually apply patterns are entirely in our nature, but some patterns may be unhealthy, limit us to our development or even be harmful. They affect our thoughts and everything we see and do. Real change in life is therefore not possible without altering these unhealthy patterns.

At this retreat, LING YUAN - the method intended for this task - will be introduced. By learning about the 'Ten Basic Patterns' and practicing this method, you will better learn to recognize your patterns. You will understand where they come from and the role they play in your life. Using LING YUAN, you can start transforming them into something that suits you better. True freedom and well-being can only be experienced when these life-limiting obstacles have been removed.

Yuan Tze lectures daily and shares his life experiences, knowledge and thoughts that inspire your further development.

He highlights important aspects of Yuan Qigong and how it can be used to positively to affect health and life. He raises thoughts and insights on how we can take responsibility for our lives and health and learn how to activate our self-healing abilities. He answers questions and inspires to reflection.

With daily training of various Yuan Qigong methods in a strong Qi field of positive energy, benevolence and compassion, you will experience how you improve your health already in these days. Understanding is deepened for life and its events with the laws of nature as a basis. You get valuable insights into your great development potential.

Focus on Ren Yuan

Ren Yuan represents an innovation in the qigong world. The foundation is traditional and modern Qigong, along with Taiji, martial arts, sports science and the science of anatomy and physiology.

Its movements mimic natural rotating, circular or spiral movements of the universe. Much time will be used to learn and practice this powerful method.

One of the basic ideas of Ren Yuan is to unlock blockages in the body so that the flows can work in a natural way. With functional flows our life becomes much healthier because they bodily internal processes work better.

Ren Yuan gives you a quiet, relaxed and natural state after a very short period of training.

Those who practice the method finds after a few days that the body is straightened, hips become more mobile as well as the shoulders and neck.

This in turn leads to decreasing or disappearing pain in shoulders, back and hips. The exercise strengthens the body which gradually improves. Diseases are prevented and overall health improved.
