Energetic and Spiritual Study & Retreat Program
In China’s long medical
history, many classical Chinese medicine schools developed
with different ideologies on how to heal body/mind and spirit
(Jing, Qi, Shen).
Formless Taoism Immortal Mind®
was created as a way to
assist those interested in Taoism or those in energy medicine
and spiritual work, especially Qigong, to understand the deep inner
blockages that could be hindering one’s energy practice or
own growth and path in life. It's basis is to counsel and
coach people to discover their own inner divinity.
The program is
structured as one weekend a month, held onsite at Inner
Strength, but also for the first time, being offered
optionally as distance study using live internet video
The retreat weekend is structured
with lecture, meditation practice, philosophical questions
and journaling assignments, qigong practice and self
reflection and more.
The course is designed
for serious students to dedicate off-campus time for
reading, research and study, doing self-cultivation
practice, and becoming introspective of their studies with
silent retreat time as a part of the weekend work.
retreat weekends are designed to:
work with the wisdom of nature, as a way to understand one’s
self and how to solve 21st century problems.

It is not just for spiritual seekers, but also for
those who want to think more efficiently in their daily life
and for those who want to preserve their integrity of mind
as they inevitably age.
We start in November at the season of
shedding the old, releasing what is completed, and beginning
to incubate the next cycle of growth.
WHY UNDERSTAND THE MIND?
Those who have felt stuck in life,
unable to escape their own spiraling thought patterns of
depression or lack of self worth have also found this course
of study a way out of their own pattern of self limiting
thinking. Therapists and healers, business professionals and
spiritual leaders have all found this course to assist them
in their life work.
Deep deep thinking requires hard work.
It takes courage and desire to want
to know how to live better. The true power of the mind has
not been reached yet. The techniques to open the mind are
not new, but the way we approach it and teach it is.
