Event description
5 Elements / 5 Precepts - Finding Well-Being Through Qigong and Dharma: A Residential Retreat with Teja Bell

About this Event

This Residential Retreat

This silent retreat is an immersion of well-being and sanity through the gifts of the Dharma and Radiant Heart Qigong.

The 5 Elements Qigong is a classic healing and restorative practice that works with both structural health and internal health, focused primarily on the internal organs. This is an easy set of exercises to learn and remember while connecting us with an immediate sense of well-being. It also provides the groundwork for discovering the benefits of continuity of practice.

The 5 Precepts are a pathway to sanity and ethical presence in our lives. We will be discovering the importance and relevance of these essential guidelines. They are not a set of rules, but a conscious engagement in spiritual well-being. The 5 precepts are the foundation of the Bodhisattva way.

We will connect to the Qigong and dharma as embodied presence with centering and grounding skills.

Each day will include contemplative practice and restorative Qigong, with periods of sitting and walking meditation.

Meditation instructions are offered each day, along with time for questions and inquiry.

Teja will offer daily dharma talks that support the central themes of the retreat.
