This long weekend residential retreat is designed to deepen the spiritual insightfulness of each student, in the same way Robert was trained privately by his master Xiao Yao.
Starting every day with Longevity Walking, Robert will focus on guiding us to practice a special exercise called Small Heavenly Circuit (Micro Cosmic Orbit). This is the practice Robert spent hundreds of hours when he was doing his 100 days water fast in the dark chamber. It is one of the most esoteric Taoist practices. Designed to enlighten our sense of well-being, as well as inner vision of our body, mind, emotion and soul, you will learn a unique way of "opening up" this special energy circuit and various techniques to widen the pass-way, that can trigger tremendous healing power hidden inside your body.
If we envision the Small Heavenly Circuit (Micro Cosmic Orbit) as a waterway that flows internally, then we can picture the 12 Meridians as tributaries that carry water to the internal organs. During the retreat we will also be trained with special meditation to "awaken" some meridians and to circulate Qi right into the organs. The Small Heavenly Circuit (Micro Cosmic Orbit) and the Meridian Meditation together formed the backbone of Robert's underground retreat practice and this week you will get the chance to experience it for yourself.
During the retreat, Robert will also guide us with various movement exercises to supple our body, to nourish our Qi and he will also collect and reorganize powerful universal energy to conduct Group Healing for all the participants.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, this retreat is a golden opportunity to strengthen your body, to empower your mind and to take your spiritual practice to new levels of awareness.
