July 17 (evening) to July 21 (ends 6pm) 2017

Life is a sacred pathway. Balance is a journey. In everyday living, we move through our public, domestic, private, and spirit life. In exploring the inner world of the body, we walk the pathways of internal energy. In experiencing our vast consciousness, we touch wisdom, compassion, vision, and groundedness.
Embark on a journey in seeking, discovering, exploring, and adventuring through our outer and inner worlds on this 4-day retreat with Eva Wong and Carolyn Krusinski.
Learn the Taoist techniques of exploring our consciousness through playful awareness, empathic awareness, inner awareness, and situation awareness. Practice the qigong of the Primordial Limitless Gate lineage to enter the energy centers and pathways of the body. Delve into the well of your inner wisdom through personal and group reflection. Wander in the beautiful hills and valley of Karme Chöling and immerse yourself in the richness of the ever-changing realities of the spirit world.

We invite you to walk in the footsteps of generations of Taoists who have cultivated health, longevity, and inner peace through their journey of balance.

By: Eva Wong and John Rockwell


The natural world is the gateway to the Tao. The sun, moon, and stars carry the essences of the celestial energy of the Tao. Mountains, rivers, rocks, and earth carry the qi of the land. Trees, flowers, grasses, and animals are filled with life force. Clouds, fog, and mist display the interaction of yin and yang.

Join Eva Wong and John Rockwell in experiencing the natural world in the beautiful hills and valley of Karme Choling. Learn how to find a place in nature where you can sit quietly, reflect, and be with the phenomenal world. Open your awareness to the energy of the land. Find out how to use the Chinese calendar to guide your diet, lifestyle, and activity as you move through the seasons. The natural world is intelligent, luminous, and alive. It is the best teacher of the Tao. Let us learn from it.
