An exclusive Retreat designed specifically to address the unique questions, interests, and perspectives of Leaders in the areas of Business, Spiritual Communities, and Health & Medicine.

October 25th - October 30th, 2018 

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

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 Gu now brings the wisdom of these 5,000-year-old healing techniques to 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 Health Professionals and Practitioners 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 health care leader and service provider.

Throughout this Retreat, we will be introducing and encouraging conversations about creative and leading-edge ideas to evolve the health care paradigm, to dissolve and transform the unique stress of the health care field, 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 health conditions, improve the quality of life, and extend healthy longevity.

√  We will also be broaching the delicate topic of professional burn-out, compassion fatigue, and the loss of inspiration – a growing epidemic in the health care field – 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 health practitioners.
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
for yourself, your loved ones, and your patients.

Proven Effective
Mind-Body Practice


In these difficult times, each of us takes up our path and our practices with the intention for healing and well being. 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.


What experts are saying

"Master Mingtong Gu has brought a level of transmission of mind-body practice that is unparalleled in my experience. Since making these teachings available to patients in my medical practice, they become healthier and happier." – Brian Bouch, MD, Director of Hill Park Medical Center

"Master Mingtong Gu and Wisdom Healing Qigong are the partners I have been searching for during my 40 years as a western physician. My personal experience with this powerful mind-body practice has confirmed its amazing (in some cases, miraculous) ability to heal emotional distress and physical illness, from life-threatening to life-altering." – Jerome Weiss, MD, director

"[Mingtong Gu] is definitely one of the rare true healers that are very hard to find. I strongly recommend for anyone to spend some time with him and experience his powerful healing energy. – Dan Vicario, MD, Founder of San Diego Cancer Center

Those professionals dealing with stress, depletion, anxiety, or depression, and wishing to strengthen their endocrine, and immune systems, as well as renew their connection to and passion for their work
New or continuing Qigong students, who work in the health care field and are seeking powerful tools for healing, increasing resilience, and promoting healthy longevity for themselves and those they serve
Those who may be seeking a new path in addition to meditation, mindfulness, yoga, tai chi, etc. to add to the effectiveness of their personal mind-body-heart and spirital practices
Health care providers who are experiencing their own health challenges, or that of someone close to them, and who are looking for a new potent form of embodied healing
"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

The search for true health care:
an interview with Lon Hatfield, M.D., Ph.D.

A rural physician for 40 years, Dr. Hatfield is now committed to serving other health care practitioners and their unique challenges.

Although I was skeptical at first, Wisdom Healing Qigong truly helps doctors,  providers, and patients move out of the place of being the victim of Disease and Life and empowers them to walk their unique journey."

The Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong

The Chi Center is located in the majestic high desert of Central New Mexico, just 20 minutes South of Santa Fe in Galisteo, NM.  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.
