CHI NEI TSANG: consist on a traditional Chinese therapeutic massage, developed deeply by the Grand Taoist Master Mantak Chia within the ‘Universal Healing Tao System’, focused on providing the inner organs a renewal boost by working with the hands on Dan Tien (or Hara), helping to release the emotions effects and to recover our centre.

Chi Nei Tsang’ is a Chinese term that refers to the inner organs massage. It helps getting rid of the negative stress effects and faster healing by precise techniques carried out directly on the navel and around the abdominal area, where stress, negative emotions and tensions tend to accumulate and become congested.

In our western culture we refer to the belly as the ‘second brain’, while Chinese call it ‘Tan Tien’, which means ‘ground of the elixir’. When the abdominal area stays tense for too long and goes stiff the energy along the whole body gets blocked. When this happens the energy that is expected to develop our vital functions gets also blocked in such way our inner organs slowly weaken and the available energy level for our activities decreases.
Chi Nei Tsang massage releases negative emotions, tension and diseases very quickly, providing comfort and wealth to our belly as well as energy enough to all of our inner organs.

This technique has proven to be very effective in the treatment of irritable colon syndrome and constipation among numerous other diseases. Forth, it removes toxins from the digestive tract and helps lymphatic drainage functioning.

A method for unblocking energy.

The vital energy, Qi, flows along our inner channels, the nervous system, blood vessels and lymphatic glands. All this systems meet and interweave at the bely, area that work at our control centre. Tensions, worries and the daily, monthly and yearly stress accumulate in this area, and are rarely dissolved if we don’t work with purpose. These disturbances can cause nervous knots and blockages in blood and lymphatic vessels. As a result, the energy flow throughout the whole body gets gradually blocked. 

The ancient Taoists realized that negative emotions cause severe damage on the health, influencing negatively on both the bodily and the spiritual functions. They understood that the different emotions are expressing different kinds of energy, and so behind any physical disease we can find a negative energy associated with an emotion. They also discovered a very specific cycle of relationships between the organs and the emotions. For example, feeling stomach-ache can be an evidence of surpassing mental worries, because worry expresses a kind of negative energy that tends to accumulate specially in the spleen and stomach. Furthermore, the Taoists discovered the way to heal numerous diseases by releasing these negative forces out of the body, as well as toxins in the physical side of our system. They developed the art of Chi Nei Tsang to transform the negative energies that get stuck blocking the inner organs and growing knots at the bely.

This way Chi Nei Tsang releases the toxins, the unhealthy emotions and the overheating or cold effects that are making our organs work inappropriately.

In addition to the Chi Nei Tsang training we offer every morning 
QI GONG & MEDITATION practice on the BEACH:

Qi Gong is an inner art that developes at the same time a deeper self-knowledge, enhances an inner potential awakening and consciousness expansion, establishing our body and mental health. Through this millenary discipline that the wise Chinese culture led us, developed by both Taoist and Buddhist traditions we can keep fitness, enhance vitality, extend our lifetime and cultivate the spirit. Qi Gong practice inherits a wide variety of exercises and energy taming techniques that coordinate soothing movements and conscious breath.

Meditation is the fundamental core of the practice through which we can achieve a direct, real and unavoidable experience that lead us to perceive the Great Unity of everything. Not only as a philosophy, the meditation knowledge funded as a direct transmission from master to disciple through thousands of years. Merged on the clairvoyant meditators ability of watching and focusing the consciousness to different aspects of Nature, they achieved to understand directly the way of Heaven, Earth and Human kind. The result of this meditation experience and transmission is an holistic view that we inherit trough the Traditional Chinese Medicine, Martial Arts, Music, Poetry, Feng shui, I Ching oracle, dance, etc.

Our summer courses are an opportunity to share in depth the experience that we try to transmit in daily classes, formation courses and retreats. By living together we try to strengthen a deeper relationship between practice mates that settle a trustful mood for our lone work, grown up deeper in such a harmonic environment we always find a great stimulation to advance in our search of self-knowledge.

Every morning we will enjoy practice and meditation at the beach shore.

During the free time you can enjoy the surrounding nature and swimming pool.

We organize hiking routes in the charming surroundings with centenary trees, evening bonfire with chants, music, story telling and poetry and more surprises you will discover by your own!
