A 6-Day Self-Empowering Qigong Training


Expand Your Capacity to Heal, Awaken, and Influence


Healing Intensive Retreats, led by Master Mingtong Gu, are the most immersive and focused Qigong trainings offered by The Chi Center.  Qigong is founded on the wisdom that the best medicine is within you ­— for you to discover, experience, and activate.

October 25th - October 30th, 2018 

Join us in an exclusive Land of Enchantment Retreat designed specifically to
address the unique desires, interests, questions, and perspectives of professionals
in the areas of Health & Medicine and Personal & Global Transformation

Qigong  is an ancient science and art that promotes the empowerment of your self and others to realize the greatest personal and collective potential. Qigong Master Mingtong Gu studied at The Zhineng Qigong Center – one of the few medicine-less hospitals in the world that used only mind-body Qigong movements, sounds, and visualizations as treatments – resulting in a 95% effective improvement rate for its more than 200,000 attendees.

Master Mingtong now brings the wisdom of these 5,000-year-old healing techniques to leaders and practitioners around the world through healing intensives at The Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong, just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. (shown in the video above)

Directly access your inner medicine of mind-body-heart through an immersive and embodied residential experience – based on the enormously successful retreat model from the Zhineng Qigong Center, established by Dr. Grandmaster Pang Ming in China in the 1980’s.

The 6-Day Retreat for Leaders and Change Agents is uniquely designed with the conscientious professional in mind. We are welcoming a specialized group of participants into a deeply restorative experience that includes personal and professional community support and inspiration.  Others like you will be there – those who understand your perspective, your challenges, and your reality as a forward-thinking leader.

Throughout this Retreat, we will be introducing and encouraging conversations about creative and leading-edge ideas to evolve old paradigms, to dissolve and transform the unique stress of  being a leader of healing and transformation, and to embody the practices and power of inner healing.

√  Master Mingtong Gu will share detailed stories and examples of his experience and the results from the medicine-less Qigong hospital in China where he trained.

√  We will be able to go deep into exploring how to heal the most challenging mental, physical, and spiritual  conditions, improving the quality of life, extending healthy longevity, and developing your capacity for creativity.

√  We will also be broaching the delicate topic of professional burn-out, compassion fatigue, and the loss of inspiration – a growing epidemic in the healing and transformation fields – offering real solutions for stress relief, renewal, and on-going self-care.

√  Enrollment is limited to 30 participants for this Retreat so that in a smaller group format we can modify the flow, and tailor the teachings to the questions and unique concerns of leaders and change-makers.
We hope you will join this upcoming Retreat to learn a new way to
promote your body’s innate health — and discover ways to revitalize energy flow
for yourself, your loved ones, your community, and your sphere of influence.

"Many of us are recognizing that we are collectively moving through unchartered waters of awakening. We need guidance and we need tools. As a practitioner focused on transformative healing, it is imperative that I walk the walk and explore the ancient technologies that are available to us in service of my patients. I couldn't be more thrilled to have the opportunity to learn Qigong from a Master who inspired me after our first professional encounter. For me, this retreat served as a self-healing exploration and an adventure into the farthest reaches of science-based holistic medicine."
–Kelly Brogan, MD, Holistic Psychiatrist, NY Times Bestselling author of A Mind of Your Own


Proven Effective Mind-Body Practice
In these uniquely challenging times, each of us takes up our path and our practices with the intention for healing and wellbeing. But, beyond your intentions, you want the practices to work. You want results. You want proof that these programs and practices deliver!

The system of Wisdom Healing Qigong is not only based on 5000 years of historical results, but is also the foundation of many other modalites such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Accupuncture, Energy Medicine, and Somatic Therapy.

Furthering the model of the Zhineng Qigong Center in China, Master Mingtong Gu has been conducting pilot studies since 2015 in several Retreats each year through his organization, The Chi Center. The findings are truly exceptional, and most notably for those suffering from  chronic conditions: 94% reported improved well-being, and 89% reported “significant improvement”, which included depression and anxiety.

Jerome Weiss, MD, director

Dr. Grandmaster Heming Pang
Founder of Zhineng Qigong Method

Master Gu's teacher, Dr. Heming Pang is an acclaimed Qigong Grandmaster trained in both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. He 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.

The Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong
The Time... The Place...The Community... For Self-Healing and Empowerment.

The Chi Center is located in the majestic high desert of Central New Mexico, just 20 minutes South of Santa Fe in the heart of the Galisteo Basin. This beautiful 79-acre resort boasts breathtaking views of New Mexico’s landscape, the dazzling sunsets over the western 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 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 house 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 with ten students in the early 1970s, and inspired millions of practitioners within two decades, Mingtong started with only a few small classes. In just a few years, Wisdom Healing Qigong has expanded into a global program, with thousands of online participants, and sold-out retreats around the world. Our vision, to create a center dedicated to integrative healing through Wisdom Healing Qigong, is now a reality at The Center,  at 40 Camino Vista Clara, Lamy/Galisteo, New Mexico.

Enjoy Great Food and Charming Surroundings

During Healing Intensive Retreats you will enjoy stunning vistas, grounds, and the restorative atmosphere at The Center in the Galisteo Basin of New Mexico.
