Kung Fu & Zen

As the Chinese wisdom says “Mastering the ultimate essence of Tao for enlightenment through Kung Fu is the highest achievement; mastering skills to help oneself improve body and mind is the medium achievement; and mastering techniques to help defend oneself is the basic achievement”.

Chinese Kung Fu, also known as traditional Chinese Martial Arts, is a very important part of ancient Chinese Culture. It is a window for the world to gain an insight into a five thousand year old civilization. It inherited the inner essence of Confucianism, Taoism and Zen philosophy while focusing on both internal and external self-refinement.

“Zen” is a method of cultivating insight through concentration, physical and spiritual practice. By observing motion from stillness, we gain wisdom, which brings inner peace and harmony between Humans and Nature.  The combination of Kung Fu and Zen expresses the essence of the unity of motion and stillness which grants deeper meaning of Chinese Kung Fu.

About The Retreat

As we all know, taking care of our bodies is essential; however, caring for our mental well-being is even more important in a modern world of trials, temptations and stress. However, many of us ignore looking after our hearts and minds. As a matter of fact, the long lineages of Traditional Kung Fu masters were aware of the importance of both body and mind, that is why we include the  philosophy of “Chan Wu” which means "Kung Fu & Zen".

In our “Kung fu & Zen” retreat program we place great emphasis on balance in life, health and mental strength. Health revitalization is extremely important in the day-to-day battle to counter the harmful effects of modern day stress. Our past retreats have shown that the exercises in our program are very helpful for those who suffered from lack of energy, toxic habits, and problems with their back, neck and shoulders due to many errors of living.

The academy has designed a series of exercises for health preservation and seminars to share the ancient Chinese philosophy and its teachings. We work closely with knowledgable Masters who has deep understanding of Chinese classics and many years of dedicated meditation practice and studies of traditional kung fu.

Our programs expresses the essence of “Kung Fu Zen” with a special focus on health and wellness using Traditional Chinese healing sciences like Moxibustion, Cupping therapy, Scraping treatment, Acupressure, and Chinese Dietetics.
