Our best hope for the future is the transformation of our own hearts and minds. Let's do this together at Yuan Tze's next retreat in California.

At this retreat immerse yourself in Qigong, healing, companionship, reflection, nature and another step towards a bright future.

Yuan Tze and Melissa

Meet Yuan Tze in-Person

We invite you to attend this very special retreat with world-renowned teacher, healer and creator of REN XUE and Yuan Qigong, Yuan Tze. This is his first in-person retreat in the United States since 2019 -  after this retreat Yuan Tze's next visit will be in 2026. Enjoy this special time to learn in-person with this extraordinary teacher.

Make friends for a lifetime

Be together with REN XUE practitioners from past retreats or see people you may know only from online events and classes. Now is the time to gather in-person again. If you have never attended a REN XUE retreat, this is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and enjoy the warmth of good company.

Practice Qigong Together

This retreat is offered to people with varying levels of experience with Yuan Qigong: from complete beginners to experienced practitioners. Yuan Qigong is easy to learn, safe & very effective.  You will learn moving and still Qigong methods from qualified teachers who will be there to guide you throughout the retreat.  We recommend practicing according to your own physical condition and know that modifications are always available. This is your opportunity to make good progress in a short time.

DEVELOP YOUR INNER WISDOM

There will be a special focus on two core patterns of the consciousness that are at the foundation of our false self, Greediness and Self-centeredness. Yuan Tze will take us on a journey of understanding how these two patterns shape our lives and help us through the process of transforming them at the deepest level.

How to prepare

Mental Preparation

‘Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.’ If you have decided to participate in this retreat you may have some expectations. What can we do to turn our expectations into reality? The following will help you prepare and get yourself ready.

  1. Think about what you would like to achieve at this stage of your life in order to move your life forward.
  2. Think about what you would like to achieve at this retreat.

Practical Tips

In addition to the mental preparation mentioned above, there are things you can do to help you get ready. The more earnestly you engage, the more you will achieve at the retreat. In addition, you can start to experience the benefits even during this preparatory stage. Here are some of them:

  1. Read Wellbeing Begins with You: to get more out of your learning at the retreat, we recommend reading this book.  Learn more about the book or make a purchase from our website (e-book and paper versions available). You may even start to experience change in your life and your consciousness as you immerse yourself in the reading. This foundation is very important for your continual growth beyond the retreat. People have reported gaining a lot of insight and benefit from reading Yuan Tze’s books.
  2. Learn & Practice Yuan Gong: Yuan Gong methods will be taught at the retreat. However, learning and practicing in advance will mean you can reap the benefits of the retreat practice immediately. This will help you build up a Qi foundation for the healing and work on life we do at the retreat. You can learn Yuan Qigong from anywhere in the world through our online Qigong courses.
  3. Practice Ren Xue: if you have been learning and using Ren Xue to work on your life, keep up your effort, especially in working on the patterns of the consciousness. This will help you make breakthroughs at the retreat in dealing with your problems.

We look forward to spending 9 days with you in our powerful Qifield and working together on our health, happiness, well-being and self-realization, and towards the goal of ‘uplifting ourselves and helping others’ (Zi Du, Du Ren).
