Asia Study Trips
When you go on one of our Qigong study trips to Asia, you are in for a special treat! These trips combine the best of many worlds – cultural exchange, intensive study with distinguished masters in their native tradition, a life-transforming healing vacation, and friendships and memories to last a lifetime!
The trips also contribute to the work we do through our non-profit, Kahuna Valley and can be partially written off as a tax-deductible donation to support our youth and family programs on the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i. To learn more, please visit www.KahunaValley.org or contact us.
This coming year, Daisy and teaching partner, Francesco Garripoli, will be hosting a study trip to Thailand:
Thailand: March 26-April 8, 2013
This 5th annual Qigong study trip to Thailand takes us on a healing journey to a magical land that is filled with as much aloha as Hawaii…but with the warmth and gentleness that is typical of the Thai people. You will not want to miss this spectacular Qigong study trip. Through our connection with two first-class facilities in Chiang Mai, you will be able to procure the ultimate in transformative therapies while Francesco and I teach Qigong in between the healing treatments offered. To receive this exciting itinerary or for registration details, please contact us.
China: September 16-30, 2013
We will be going to Beijing and another select city for our 16th annual Qigong study trip to China! Francesco and I promise another exciting adventure in healing as well as gastronomic pleasures! (At least, that is what many of our travelers insist is a “must-feature” in our promos!) Our joyful journey will begin in the western foothills outside Beijing at our teacher, Master Wan Su Jian’s Qigong clinic and cultural exchange center before we leave for another part of the country to explore and play Qigong at sacred sites. Master Wan was featured in our PBS-TV Qigong documentary, “Qigong – Ancient Chinese Healing for the 21st Century” and is renown for his multi-person approach to healing where more than one practitioner works on a single client. Herbal foot baths and massages, Qigong massage treatments and training in meditation and Qigong healing methods are par the course when we’re at Master Wan’s clinic.
Trip Supports the Datong Orphanage: Master Wan and his team give free treatments to the children and foster families at the orphanage every other month. Many of the children have brain tumors or are handicapped physically, yet their spirits are strong and joyful. Our trips fund the medical supplies and treatment visits to this community each year.
Our second week of the trip is spent in a secluded, sacred mountain retreat practicing Qigong self-healing and rejuvenation techniques. Though we will also go into town and explore the wonders of the area (and yes, shopping in China is a must!)…the focus is on learning Qigong and bringing your practice home.
We look forward to supporting you on these healing journeys and sharing with you a little taste of what makes China so special to us!
