The Next Step On Your Spiritual Journey to Connectedness, Health, and Self-Actualization

Awakening The New You In The New Year
Open Your Heart, Connect To Essence, and Heal Through Pure Consciousness

A 7-Day Wisdom Healing Qigong Retreat Series
​​​​​​​in New Mexico with
​​​​​​​Master Mingtong Gu
​​​​​​​FEBRUARY 14 - 20, 2019

Are you looking for a path to greater meaning, fulfillment, and wellbeing in 2019?

In these changing times, many people are realizing that they feel disconnected, uncertain about the future, and frequently under pressure.

It’s hard to set your best intentions and work diligently to accomplish them, when your life feels incomplete in a way you can’t quite describe (but can’t ignore, either).

Perhaps for you, as for many others, this experience of “something missing” has already gone further — leading to stress-related illness, lowered immune response, accelerated aging, and feelings of isolation, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, or exhaustion.

The root cause is the same for all of these problems:

When we are not continuously in touch with the natural energy surrounding us and inside us, then we struggle to experience the higher levels of consciousness that empower us to improve our mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.

The solution for all of those problems is also the same: The practices of Wisdom Healing Qigong that release blocked energy and include Pure Consciousness and Essence teachings.

These ancient teachings help you develop the capacity to accept and transform any aspect of your life. This is possible because everything you need is already within you, waiting to be awakened.

At the core of all existence is pure, infinite Essence, beyond the physical realm and beyond the limits of intellectual understanding. Consciousness practices are a path to connect with and awaken to your Essence.


Through Wisdom Healing Qigong practices, you will open your perceptions to experiences of embodied wisdom, energetic connection, and conscious healing. You’ll be able to set specific intentions that resonate with your heart, mind, and spirit… and know that you will fulfill those intentions with grace this year and beyond.

Master Mingtong Gu Shares:
​​​​​​​How Wisdom Healing Qigong Works

There are many types of Qigong. The type that we teach and practice at The Chi Center is called Wisdom Healing Qigong, a scientifically proven system refined for modern times, and based upon the lineage of Zhineng Qigong developed in China by Dr. Grandmaster Pang.

Wisdom Healing Qigong empowers you to expand your consciousness, unblock your energies, and directly access your inner capacity for healing and spiritual growth. It is founded on the principle that all dis-ease, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual, stems from a blockage of the life energy that is called qi (chi).

Qi (Chi) - Your Inner Medicine and Deep-Seated Power Within
"We cultivate our own life energy through accessing nature’s great store of life energy (qi/chi). This approach produces quick results. But cultivating one’s qi is not the most fundamental; cultivating one’s spirit is. Mastery of qi is really achieved through mastery of consciousness. We use consciousness in a careful, craftsman-like way, to shape our life, to attain our goals. If we use modern terminology to name this process, we call it Qigong... in modern terms, Qigong is just the refinement of consciousness to enhance the state of energy in the body. This leads to vibrant health, a harmonious body and mind, and awakened spiritual life.” 
​​​​​​​— Dr. Ming Pang, creator of Zhineng Qigong 
(translated: Wisdom Healing Qigong) 


An example of how this works is through the Qigong technologies of Sound Healing. Sound itself is a form of energy, and you can experience the power of chi when your vocal energy creates vibrations throughout your body and your awareness. It facilitates deep healing, transformation, and awakening on all levels of existence, including your conscious and subconscious mind.

A core principle of Wisdom Healing Qigong is that emotional and spiritual health is key to healing and awakening in other dimensions of our lives, and to healing humanity as a whole.

We follow this insight by expanding our consciousness to reach a state of mind in which all the old mental patterns and habits fall away, leaving us truly self-aware, self-knowing, and self-realizing. In that state, it is possible to directly connect with the source of chi, and to awaken to your spiritual and energetic essence.

​​​​​​​Your body is the physical manifestation of your consciousness, your spirit, your thoughts, your energy… and therefore your physical health and spiritual health are both improved when you empower yourself to connect with the energetic source of pure consciousness, experiencing life as infinite oneness.

​​​​​​​Your Retreat Itinerary:

​​​​​​​February 14


The 7-Day Retreat begins at 4pm (Mountain Time) on Thursday, February 14. Onsite guests who enroll for the entire Retreat can check in and get settled in their rooms. 

Online participants in the 7-Day Retreat will have a video orientation Thursday evening.

Both in-person and online attendees will then attend a welcome session, followed by a light Wisdom Healing Qigong practice and teaching, a dinner break, and an evening healing session with Master Mingtong.

​​​​​​​February 15


We’ll start Friday with an energizing practice session at 7am, followed by breakfast. Then we’ll begin intensive Sound Healing practices, working together as a group in the beautiful Kiva or our geodesic Compassion Dome. Master Mingtong will also teach you simple Movement practices that relax your mind and body to generate more powerful healing effects. 

​​​​​​​Sacred healing sounds work to release the stress we all feel, which is often primarily emotional stress. By healing these emotional stresses, you empower yourself to heal and awaken on every other level of your life.

Sound Healing is a deeply empowering practice. Anybody can do it — you don’t need to know how to play musical instrument, you don’t need a strong voice, and you don’t need any special healing skills. You simply join in making the healing sounds and experience the sounds and energy around you.

Sound is an energetic vibration that can awaken your heart, your organs, your consciousness, and your cells – to facilitate deep healing and transformation on all levels from the physical to the emotional and spiritual.

Master Mingtong will teach you the Sound Healing techniques that are normally shared with Level 3 practitioners of Wisdom Healing Qigong. Advanced toning techniques benefit the brain, spinal cord, nerves, joints, muscles, and tendons — as well as awaken your consciousness.

Even if you’re a complete beginner, you can learn these techniques with step-by-step guidance. And, there will be plenty of breaks to allow you to assimilate what you learned and experience!

Saturday - Sunday
​​​​​​​February 16 - 17


On Saturday and Sunday, as well as continuing the progress you’ve made in Sound Healing and Movement practices, Master Mingtong will introduce you to the first and second levels of Pure Consciousness practice.

This will be the one of the first times these practices are shared with the general public — the teachings were previously only available within the Zhineng Qigong Master training program in China. You’ll also work with Master Mingtong in group teachings of other advanced Essence practices, and on Sunday evening we’ll share a powerful group healing session.

You may choose to participate in optional juicing or fasting during these two days, to focus your intentions and prepare you for deeper transformation. Intermittent fasting has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce oxidative stress, improve insulin sensitivity, and increase vital neurochemicals in the brain.​​​​​​​

By combining these practices with the energetic charge of our sacred location, plus the collective energy field of the group... the entire weekend will become a supercharged experience of healing and spiritual awakening!

Monday - Wednesday
​​​​​​​February 18 - 20


We’ll begin each day with energizing practice at 7am, followed by breakfast. Then we’ll carry on our progress in Pure Consciousness and Essence with group teaching and continuous practice, as well as healings, meditations, and meals with the group. ​​​​​​​

Master Mingtong will teach you Level 1 and 2 practices, which take you beyond awareness and are usually only transmitted by Qigong Masters to their most dedicated and advanced students. You’ll learn to integrate the Pure Consciousness practices with the Sound Healing and Movement you’ve already learned, to facilitate deeper healing, awakening, and transformation.

We will also practice silence to focus our minds on the experience. You may choose to continue with optional juicing or fasting throughout these three days if you wish.

On Wednesday 20th February, we’ll continue our intensive Pure Consciousness and Essence Practices until about 1pm. The Online broadcast will end, and after a final community lunch, it will be time to say your goodbyes and exchange contact information with your new-found friends before you head home.

The 7-Day Retreat Begins at 4pm on Thursday, February 14, 2019

​​​​​​​Meet the World's Leading Master Practitioners of
​​​​​​​Zhineng - Wisdom Healing Qigong

Master Mingtong Gu
Founder of the Wisdom Healing Qigong method and The Chi Center, headquartered in the USA just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico

​​​​​​​As a Master, Teacher, and Healer and based on my success working with people of all ages and with many physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges, I founded the Wisdom Healing Qigong method to make Zhineng Qigong accessible to Western lifestyles and cultures and to benefit people around the world.  The Zhineng Qigong lineage stems from 5,000-year-old Chinese wisdom traditions we now know as Qigong.

I've shared Qigong teachings with thousands of students at Retreats, workshops, and other live events, I've been recognized as the Qigong Master of the Year (by the 13th World Congress on Qigong and Traditional Chinese Medicine), and authored several books and online training programs that translate the ancient teaching of Wisdom Healing Qigong for modern readers and students.

​​​​​​​Studies conducted during the Retreats at the Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong, in New Mexico, have confirmed profound results. So, please arrive prepared to experience powerful transformation in your physical wellness, mental health, and spiritual development.
Dr. Grandmaster Pang
Founder of the Zhineng Qigong method and China's Huaxia Zhineng Medicineless Qigong Clinic & Training Center

In the tradition of honoring one's lineage, I always love to share credit and deep appreciation my Teacher,  Dr. Heming Pang​​​​​​​ — an acclaimed Qigong Grandmaster trained in both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, who lives in China.  Dr. Pang synthesized his profound medical knowledge of the old and new healing sciences with the ancient art of Qigong practice.​​​​​​​

Dr. Pang developed Zhineng Wisdom Healing Qigong, and founded a world-renowned medicine-less Qigong hospital – the largest in China. There, extensive research and effective applications of Zhineng Qigong as a mind-body science resulted in the Chinese government naming Zhineng as one of the most effective medical Qigong methods.  I received my foundational and mastery training there, directly from Dr. Pang.

At The Center in China, extensive research and effective applications of Zhineng Qigong as a mind-body science resulted in the Chinese government naming Zhineng as China's pre-eminent medical Qigong and energy-healing approach after a nineteen-year government survey. 

In two decades, Dr. Pang’s center helped more than 200,000 people with wellness challenges ranging from fatigue to cancer. In 1998, a study of 2,088 guests at the center concluded that 35% were completely cured of the medical conditions they’d arrived with, while 99% saw an effective improvement in their wellbeing. Dr. Pang continues to lead innovative research projects across a wide spectrum of world-changing topics.

The Chi Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong In New Mexico

The Chi Center is located in the majestic high desert of Central New Mexico, USA,  just 20 minutes South of Santa Fe in the beautiful Galisteo Basin. This beautiful 150-acre property boasts breathtaking views of New Mexico’s landscape, the dazzling sunrises and sunsets over the surrounding mountains, and expansive and true darkness that reveals the Milky Way on the many clear nights. As soon as you arrive you can feel the same sacred healing energy of the land that the native people of this area have been feeling for thousands of years.

Workshops are held in the beautiful circular building which replicates traditional ceremonial kivas, set into the earth. The main lodge features six fireplaces, and the grounds include two labyrinths, outdoor fireplaces, fountains, a pond with a waterfall and paths for reflection and hiking.

“This is a place where heaven and earth truly meet within you and around you.”

Just as Dr. Pang (Master Mingtong Gu's teacher) started teaching Zhineng Qigong to ten students in China in the early 1970s, and inspired millions of practitioners within just two decades, Master Mingtong started with only a few small classes.
Within just a few years, Wisdom Healing Qigong (Zhineng Qigong translated for Western students) expanded into a global program, with thousands of online participants, and sold-out retreats around the world. Master Mingtong's vision, to create a Center dedicated to integrative healing through Wisdom Healing Qigong in the USA, is now a reality at The Chi Center.
