Qi Gong helps to generate energy and vitality, and promotes self healing and inner harmony allowing us to become more fully conscious and aware. Meditation and Qi Gong complement each other beautifully. By combining the two practices, this retreat offers us the chance to deepen our connection with ourselves and others in the natural beauty and healing environment that is Dhanakosa.
