With Qigong Master Coach and creator of Pain Body Healing Lama Tantrapa
The way you answered these questions may set you on a truly incredible healing adventure! You probably already know, at least intellectually, that pain is not the same as suffering, don’t you? Alas, most of us continue living lives filled with both pain and suffering, because we tend to forget to pay attention to the true nature of things.
If you are like most of us, humans, you may also find it pretty hard to remain constantly aware of your true nature as an energy being or to perceive all the experiences in your life as energy processes.
Wouldn't it be amazing to be surrounded by a group of spiritually awake individuals that remember to view themselves and others as energy beings? Imagine for a moment what would happen, if you could learn how to transform whatever challenges you may experience into awesome opportunities for growing stronger and wiser. How would you like to apply such a transformation to, say, your health or relationships?
This is exactly what you are invited to experience in during our immersive, week-long wellness vacation in one of the most amazing places on Earth—the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa—on January 13 through 19, 2019.
Participating in this retreat will help you build a strong momentum for enjoying a lot more happiness and wisdom in your life.
You will begin your journey by learning the principles of energy awareness specific to Qi Dao. You will also discover how they can be integrated with the approach popularized by Eckhart Tolle, the bestselling author of The Power of Now, known as “Pain Body” that points toward the psychosomatic nature of chronic pain.
Pain Body tends to be manifested in the form of different patterns of tension that cause aches and pains in the specific parts of the body. You will learn how to identify these patterns and address them in yourself as well as in others. You will also enjoy the game of Push Hands - a practice that will prove to be mutually enlightening and empowering for both players.
If you are a spiritual adventurer who is exploring consciousness, this empowering and enlightening event is going to be just right for you!
You will discover some of the most profound aspects of energy awareness and lucid dreaming based on the principles underlying all styles of Energy Arts that even advanced practitioners of Tai Chi and Qigong hardly ever learn, unless they happened to attend our immersive retreats like this one.
You are invited to enjoy this empowering and enlightening immersion experience while having an dream vacation in the Canary Islands in a small, select group of like-minded people from all over the world!
During the third week of January, the weather on the Canaries is as perfect as it gets. You will be able to rejuvenate your body, restore your energy, and awaken your spirit with the help of Lama Tantrapa, the founder of Academy of Qi Dao.
You will be able to enjoy daily Qigong, Tai Chi and other energy practices in the mornings, Pain Body Healing classes in the evenings, as well as a private coaching session with Lama Tantrapa, the world's foremost expert in Qigong and Tai Chi Coaching.
You will even receive an initiation into the Practice of Empowerment from him, which will help you feel the flow of energy in your body and around it, so you can enjoy being in the flow at will.
Our daily exploration of Tai Chi and Qigong will consist of two daily sessions (2 hours each): a dynamic practice class in the morning from 8:00 to 10:00 am followed by a delicious brunch and Qigong in the evening from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, after which we will enjoy a healthy, mouth-watering dinner together.
During the rest of the day, you will also have ample time to enjoy the tropical paradise that our retreat is being held in: have fun on the beach that is just down the road, soak in the energy of the majestic volcano in the middle of the island, visit the spectacular and magical Dunas Natural Park, or explore the local markets, culture, and cuisine. Speaking of the cuisine, you will love our delicious meals made of the local ingredients and full of exotic flavors.
After the morning Tai Chi class, you will be served a delicious homemade brunch, including fresh fruit salad, jams, bread, yogurt, muesli, and granola, a hot dish of the day (eggs, pancakes, porridge, etc.), as well as your choice of drinks: coffee as well as green, black, oolong, or herbal tea.
Once a day, Lama Tantrapa will also conduct a tea ceremony dedicated to infusing the special brew with the energy of his Qi Dao lineage, which has been fostered by his family for 27 generations.
Included are also five dinners bursting with flavors and colors—healthy food that you will likely get inspired to prepare upon returning home. Most meals are vegetarian with regular and gluten-free options (we can meet specific dietary requirements with prior notice).
Both brunches and dinners are served daily, except for one evening, when our entire group is going to eat out at one of the fabulous restaurants serving some mouth-watering tapas and seafood. You will be dreaming for months about our delectable food, delightful atmosphere, and fantastic accommodations!
