About the Facility

This is, undoubtedly, one of the best and outstanding retreat schools there is in the United States today. Located in one of the most scenic locations on the East side of the Rockies, it has a very gentle winter season and operates year around.

Master Wudang Chen of the Dao House is one of China’s most celebrated, and highly qualified Daoist Priests with his own Daoist Retreat now in the Rocky Mountains. You no longer have to go to China for training, but can find the best instructor from China here in the US. If you ever wanted to learn from the most experienced Master Instructor, he is the one you would select.

In the regular studies, students will be exposed to a variety of related practices such as qigong meditation, walking meditation, qigong tea ceremony, Taoist dietetics, and Taoist music. During your stay at the center, you will receive and experience medical qigong treatment, foot massage, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs. With advanced lessons, you will also learn how to give treatments to others.

As a side benefit, if you have any particular ailments, you will be able to discuss it with them to see if they can help you in any way.
