Retreat is an opportunity to practice more intensely, go deeper into the experience of silence and stillness, and the mysteries of working with the Qi through the practices of qigong, circle walking, and Daoist zuowang meditation.

Brief Review of the 2019 Retreat
The retreat is over and it may have been my best retreat. (I say that every year) The facility at St. Dorothy’s Rest was fantastic. The weather was fine with a mixture of light rain and sunny skies under the huge redwood trees. We had numerous deep meditations and plenty of space for our qigong practices. Three members of the ADGL were ordained as Daoist priests. Students attended this retreat from as far away as Florida, W. Virginia, L.A., Idaho, Canada, and Alaska.
