Dario Gerchi - Qigong Retreats
Everybody wants mental peace, physical relaxation, balanced and harmonious energy, and good health in their life. It can be frustrating, however, to find that we do not always know how to achieve these qualities. Even when we do know the way, we may still find that we cannot follow it properly.
Qigong/Hua Gong provides an invaluable way and clear guidance along the way for us to realise these desirable qualities. The art of Qigong (also variously spelt Qi Gong, Chi Gong, Chigong, Chi Kung or Chikung) originated in China several thousand years ago. Throughout its history it has been practised by Taoist and Buddhist monks, Confucian scholars, indigenous doctors and Martial Arts practitioners as a source of power, knowledge and wisdom. It embodies the essence of the Chinese civilisation.

Dario runs retreats at Mas Sant Nicolau twice a year. He is a well-respected Qigong practitioner both for his dedicated practice and the resulting achievements in overcoming severe physical disabilities.
He has followed the teaching of Qigong master Zhixing Wang, the Founder of the Hua Gong System, since September 1995 when he could not walk very far or stand for more than a few minutes.
After a few months’ Hua Gong practice the improvement particularly in the physical and energy aspects was dramatic and in summer 1997 he was able to climb 1800ft up a mountain and run down again leaping from rock to rock with the agility of a tiger.
His personal achievements will serve as an inspiration for those who also wish to take advantage of the wealth of benefits available through Qigong practice.
