Qigong is an ancient Chinese art of self regulation, improvement of one’s health and communication with different forms of life. Zhong Yuan Qigong (ZYQ) represents the highest levels of Qigong. It has a seven thousand year-old lineage and is comprised of the wisdom and knowledge of Qigong masters from many generations. The methods of ZYQ allow a human improve one’s health, reach longevity and increase the quality of life. Currently, the oldest system of self-regulation, self-recovery and human development Zhong Yuan Qigong has been so widespread in different countries that each person has no ability to attend seminars and workshops by Mingtang Xu. That is why such form as Retreat was established for a deep and intensive practice. It was named Retreat because students should come during such practice into a State of relaxation and peace of mind, so it is also a good rest. At first such form was used only in Shaolin (China). Students entered that place with pleasure and from all over the world. But the number of participants was limited by different factors, such as: the limited quantity of rooms in a hotel and seats in a restaurant; the limited area for lectures and practice; the necessity to get visa and too long practice (from three to four weeks). Not many people can leave their day-to-day affairs for such a long time. Besides, a long trip met financial difficulties. In order to make such training as accessible as possible to many people Mingtang Xu started short retreats (from five days to two weeks) in different cities and countries: in the former Soviet Union, in Western Europe and the United States. The first such a week-long retreat held in January 2003 in a rest zone near Moscow. It gathered, mainly those who already knew what is such practice of Zhong Yuan Qigong (ZYQ) and who had previously attend Shaolin retreats by Master Xu. That had defined a program of Moscow retreat. It was focused on the State of the pause, the methods of its achievement and obstacles on the way to the Pause state. There were lectures on the levels of development of Shen; how to reach the level of souls departure; what is transcendental energy; where is the source of our desires; how our emotions are formed and what causes them; what is the eye of mind, etc. The exercises and meditation were also given there on all the topics. The next retreat was held in Kiev. Here practitioners were acquainted with the East ideas about the life of a human with his endless reincarnations in the six worlds controlled by Yama. By reading this book you can learn how it is connected to the positive and negative karma of a human. Practicing the proposed exercises you will be able to experience yourself what is the inherent nature of human beings. You will learn about the stages of spiritual development; meet with the origins of our desires, and how our emotions are generated. You will understand the ways how to avoid emotional trauma and how to purify your heart and mind, if you had such situations earlier. The collection contains material about the Yin and Yang cells; about the Third Eye and its training; about the development of informational channels and the Path to Enlightenment. On each topic you will find different methods of practice and meditation. The information, which the participants get during such retreats are different from the usual seminars on ZYQ. Students get the understanding of different approaches to their practice and a completely new view at familiar material. Qigong practitioners can use this book to be acquainted with new information and to practice the exercises. For the other categories of readers this book can widen the horizons of perception of the world and helps to see well known things from a different angle. The book is intended for both general readers, as well as Qigong practitioners.
