RETREAT: Locking the Monkey (Suo Xin Yuan)


Our mind is like a wild monkey jumping from thought to thought. Equally restless, we are living our lives. We identify with the “monkey” and act according to his untamed playfulness, not hearing our true voice. This year we intend to dedicate our retreat to the monkey, one of our strongest allies, but in the same moment one of our most dangers traitors. Daoists knew how to tame the wild fellow. With the Suo Xin Yuan – Locking the monkey Meditation, they have developed a method to train the monkey to attain our own wishes.

Join us for a 100 days meditation and a 7 days intense retreat. The 100 days period will start on November 1, 2017. Everyone will first practice the meditation by himself according to an instruction video by Ismet Himmet. After the first 1.5 month you are welcome to join us for a 7 days intense retreat with meditation and other Qi Gong practices. The main focus will be „locking the monkey“, while we will go on together to the next level with „taming the horse“. Fasting, silence and abstaining from media consumption will also part of the 7 days retreat.

The instructional video and the retreat are free for everyone! As only „requirement“, we invite you to donate a random amount of money to a children welfare group in your local area.

For of the retreat, we welcome you to live with us at the Wudang Deutschland school, giving all your attention to the inner work we will be doing there. The accommodation will be free of charge, you just need to organize your own food (we have a kitchen with a fridge and stove, which you are welcome to use as you please!).

The retreat starts on December 11, 2017 at 9 a.m. with a short introduction. The training and retreat rules will be explained and come into effect right after. So be there on time. The retreat ends the following week, on December 18, 2017 at 9 a.m.
