10-day Retreat in Chiang Mai, Thailand
22–31 Jan 2019 | Chiang Mai, Thailand
Educate and balance yourself with the power of Qi-Yo. Learn awareness, experience relaxation.
Surrounded by more than 300 Buddhist temples and national parks – like Doi Inthanon, which includes the highest mountain in Thailand – our first retreat of 2019 will take place in Chiang Mai. Bordering Laos and Myanmar (Burma), Northern Thailand is known for its thickly-forested mountains, inhabited by several hill tribes, each with its own language and culture. Chiang Mai is the northern capital of Thailand. In the historic walled city dozens of golden temples sparkle – radiant testaments to the importance of Buddhism in Thai culture, waiting to be explored by you. There's an energy in this city that captivates all who come, whether they seek a trekking adventure or a spiritual awakening as they traverse the solemn path from temple to temple. We will also visit the bustling night markets, snacking on delicious street food and enjoying traditional Thai massage. During this retreat you have the opportunity to accumulate a 50-hour Teacher Training Certificate issued by Qi-Yo Multiversal.
Qi-Yo seeks to be a refinery of the soul. Within it people can seek their true self, draw on their uniqueness and special talents, comprehend and express their full potential. The Qi-Yo method fosters creativity and inspires us to do our bit in creating a world rooted in mutual joy and appreciation rather than consumption and acquisition. Rediscovering the true value of life and perhaps discovering your true calling, you will embark on an exciting quest for self-knowledge and shared growth.
