Yuan Qigong

June 25 - July 7, 2019 Stockholm.

The theme for this year's retreat is to improve health and develop realization and wisdom through training of the Yuan Qigong methods at a deep level. Yuan Qigong is comfortable to train, easy to learn while effective; it gives quick results. It has been developed by Qigong master Yuan Tze. We practice in a wonderful castle environment next to Lake Mälaren close to Stockholm. Let Yuan Qigong training develop and strengthen your consciousness and your body.

The specified costs for participation are valid until 1 March 2019. After 1 March an additional fee of 500 SEK will be added to all bookings.

The Qigong retreat consists of two parts

Part 1: 25 - 29 June 2019.

These days are especially for those who want to attend a shorter time, attend for the first time or want to learn how to practice Yuan Qigong in a good way. Yuan Tze participates in part of these five 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, you learn details about Qi, Qi-field, Qi-field building, consciousness and heart qualities.

Expected results of this training:

  • Improve your health with lasting results. Physical problems decrease or disappear. Problems throughout the body, especially shoulders, back, hips are processed
  • Inproved circulation in your body
  • Improve your well-being and feel relaxed, calm and natural
  • Get new tools for the work with your consciousness and your body to get a positive development

Ren Yuan represents a new thinking in the qigong world. The foundation is traditional and modern Qigong, together with Taiji, martial arts, sports science and science of anatomy and physiology.

The movements of the method mimics the natural movements of the universe that are rotation, circulation or spiral.

One of the basic ideas of Ren Yuan is to unlock the blockages in the body so that the flows can function in a natural way. With functioning flows, our lives become much healthier because the bodily internal processes work better.

In Part 1, much of the time will be used to teach and train this powerful method.

You who have participated in the retreat during 2015 - 2018 can register directly for if you want to.

Part 2: 29 June - 7 July 2019

The focus of this retreat at this year we will be improving health and attaining realization and wisdom and using Tian Yuan and Di Yuan on a deepened level.

Yuan Gong has nine methods in total. You might be wondering why so many methods when the first four methods seem comprehensive enough for improving Qi and health. This is because Yuan Gong is not just a Qigong system; rather, it is a system for uplifting the whole life. Yuan Gong can give you a lot beyond health, including

  • Understanding of one’s own true purpose and meaning of life
  • Our potential and what we can achieve in our personal development
  • How to truly realise this potential and reach a higher level of life.

    To be successful using Yuan Gong to uplift life, it is essential to work step by step. Each of the nine methods is a step that prepares for the next one. The stronger the foundation, the better result from practicing the following methods.

    Can you make progress in Tian Yuan and Di Yuan when you have practiced them and other Yuan Gong methods for a few years?

    The answer is a big YES. Absolutely. The effect of Tian Yuan and Di Yuan practice can advance through three levels:

    • Level 1. Higher Qi-level and reach a relaxed and calm state
    • Level 2. A deepened state of unification and understanding of our human nature as well as an even higher Qi-level
    • Level 3. The manifestation of the True Self

    At this retreat, you will learn how to continue to deepen your practice of these two methods to make further progress.

    In the retreat in Canada last year (2018), a student reached the level of ‘Opening the Heart’ during her Tian Yuan practice and that completely changed her life. She experienced an unconditional love like she had never felt before. It even surpassed the love to her children. She felt the connection with everything and the unification with the universe. This kind of effect is possible when we successfully have worked on our heart and consciousness to attain realisation and wisdom.

    Another main focus of all REN XUE retreats from now on is attaining realisation and wisdom by working on the heart, consciousness and Shen. The focus at the 2019 retreat is to deepen the heart qualities (Xin Ling) because they are the prerequisites. With a strong, solid foundation of Xin Ling, the chance of making real change to life grows immensely. Yuan Tze will be giving you most valuable guidance to do this work.

    At this retreat, we will also have a very special guest, Dorrie, coming all the way from New Zealand to assist you. Dorrie, a teacher who has reached a high level of realisation, will be there to help you work on the heart qualities. She will share her inspirational story of using Tong Yuan to open her heart and guide you in Tong Yuan practice to work on the five essential qualities of the heart. You will be amazed at how different your life will become when your heart truly opens and manifests these wonderful qualities.

    Making progress in life can be illustrated with an upward spiral path. Using Each method with its specific purpose takes you up along the spiral to new levels of understanding. Each level of progress also brings new experiences and effects to each method.

    During the retreat you also have the possibility to practice Ren Yuan, work in groups, meet with other teachers and students to exchange experiences and just enjoy the Wik castle surroundings with its lovely nature.

    Training in person with Yuan Tze, the creator of the system, in his powerful Qi-field is a very special thing. The experience of doing this work together with a group of loving, caring and warm-hearted people can be sheer magical. We hope you can take this life-changing opportunity and use it to make another step forward on uplift yourself and help others (Zi Du Du Ren).
