    Daoist Meditation & Autumn Qigong for Health via Zoom

    What is it?

    Fall is a time of transition when the hot Yang energy of summer gives way to the cool Yin energy of winter. The days are shorter, the leaves fall from the trees, and we say goodbye to the long, beautiful days of summer. It is time to take the Yang energy of summer and store it away so that it is preserved on the inside. This Qiqong was designed to help the body smoothly move through the shift from Yang to Yin. Also good for Lung Energy and Boy's Wei Qi.

    In this course, Daoist Master Zhou Xuan Yun will be teaching the Daoist Meditation and Autumn Qigong and discussing their health nourishing properties, such as emptying your mind and letting your Qi flow and breathing methodology. The 4-Movement Autumn Qigong Set is suited for practice this coming season. The workshop will include standing and sitting positions, discussions of theories and methods of the Qigong Set.

    A Day of Hiking in White Mountain, NH, and One Hour of Meditation at the Summit with Master Zhou

    Where:  Mount Major, New Hampshire. A day of hiking trip to the summit and then it will follow by an hour of meditation on top of the summit. Easy and moderate trails about three-hour hiking. We will be back to Xuan Ju Daoist Center for a bonfire.  

    When: Saturday, October 23, from 9:00 to 5:00 pm EST
    meeting at 9:00 am at Xuan Ju Daoist Center

    What is it?  A NEW event! Since Master Zhou loves to scale and explore the mountains of NH, he thought about bringing his students, new and old, to experience the joy of savoring the fresh air of the mountain and the burst of fall foliage where the vistas of hues of gold, green, orange and burnt red are spread out as far as our eyes can see. What's more, an hour of meditation at the summit under the guidance of Master Zhou -- soaking in the magic of the changing season.  And then lunch Al Fresco! 

    We will descend the mountain in relaxing fashion in time to reach Xuan Ju at around 4:00 pm.  And if you are up for it, we will communally prepare supper and then follow up by a bonfire to end a beautiful Autumn day. 

    Is this for me? 
    Everyone is invited to join. The nature of this excursion is to hike the mountain taking in the scenery as we climb up. Mount Major trails are graded easy to moderate. If you are a new student and has not done climbing before, we suggest to prepare by working out in the gym or take some physical activities before the trip. 

    What to bring?
    Hiking shoes are recommended but comfortable sneakers with tractions will do. Bring a jacket, or wind breaker, and a day pack. Please pack your own lunch for the Al-Fresco. And bring plenty of water. 


    • Day hike : $80/day (Members price: $72/day - become a member)
    • If you are staying for the bonfire and will be staying at Xuan Ju, kindly add on boarding and meals. 
    • Boarding: $30/night (Limited space - first come first serve, there are alternative boarding options in the area including local Hotels & Inns and AirBnB.) There will also be an option to set up your own tent on the retreat grounds with access to our showers and facilities at $15/night.
