Retreat: Thailand February 2017

The Essentials of Kan & Li Meditation & Inner Tai Chi Chi Kung 
with Masahiro Ouchi UHT Senior Instructor

February 5 – 12,  2017 at Tao Garden, Chiang Mai, Thailand



Learning the mechanics of a practice is one thing, living the wisdom of it is quite another thing.

Masahiro’s focus is on living the practices rather than just learning the information. He has been keeping this principle in his own heart over themore than forty years of his personal spiritual practice. During this one-week retreat we will concentrate on the deep wisdom within Kan & Li Meditation and Tai Chi Chi Kung.

Kan & Li Meditation is a rather advanced meditation practice, but we will learn the core technique step by step, and contemplate the deep wisdom within it. Kan& Li is about a unity of pure elements of fire and water, a unity of true Yin and Yang both within ourselves and in the cosmos.

It is about Three Deities and Three Treasures. It is about the dynamics of our body, mind and spirit. It is about esoteric Qi alchemy and about manifesting that in our physical and social life.

Masahiro will focus on a simpler, elemental approach to this powerful meditation and ways we can utilize it in our daily life.

Tai Chi Chi Kung is dancing with Qi, both internally and externally. It is a meditation moving with our physical body and emotions and universal energy. It is about letting go, opening and flowing. It is about getting in touch with our weakness and strength deep inside. Masahiro will focus on the inner feeling and sensations of the beautiful movements. Hopefully, our every movement through our life should be with Taichi.

We will also enjoy daily Dream Practice: another way napping. One and half day Silence Practice and a half-day of quality relaxing time are also planned.

Beginners are welcome to attend with clear intentions and a willingness to learn. Advanced and experienced practitioners are also welcome with the fresh curiosity of beginners. Masahiro’s approach is always full of fun and gentleness and internal intensity: It can be a life changing experience.

You are warmly invited to become a member of our joyful, open and caring tribe for this special week.
