Program

This retreat is a six-day systematic 'bigu' fasting retreat designed exclusively for international guests. All activities are designed based on the ancient Chinese body-mind training wisdom to promote wellness and a deep connection with nature. This retreat is perfect for:

  • Health enthusiasts: Individuals who wish to improve their suboptimal health condition through traditional Chinese medicine and holistic practices like Bigu fasting and Qigong
  • Spiritual seekers: Those interested in awakening their Qi and advancing their spiritual path through Taoist Qigong and meditation in serene natural settings
  • Cultural travelers: Explorers eager to deeply engage with China's rich cultural heritage while rejuvenating their minds and bodies through transformative wellness experiences.

About 'Bigu' and Qigong

Bi Gu (辟谷) is an ancient Chinese practice rooted in Taoist philosophy, involving the abstention from grains and specific body and breath trainings (Qi Gong) to cultivate internal life force (qi) and achieve physical and spiritual purification. Historically favored by Chinese royalty for its purported benefits of longevity and vitality, Bi Gu remains a fascinating method for enhancing well-being and spiritual connection.

The 'Bigu' method: More than a dietary practice

By integrating physical, mental, and spiritual practices to cultivate inner energy (Qi), Bigu goes beyond mere calorie restriction to promote holistic well-being and sustained vitality. Choose Bigu for a time-tested, comprehensive approach to health that nourishes both body and spirit.

The practice

The key to a successful Bigu is the cultivation of Qi. You follow a special daily routine that includes Qigong (气功), Tai Chi (太极), and traditional Chinese medicine (中医调理) sessions.
