Tao is the cosmic process or “Way” of self-arising, infinite flow of Qi (= subtle breath). Qi takes form as Cosmic Self-love (= wholeness), and creative free will (= dance of Yin-Yang energies). Qigong includes the art and science of healing humans using this omni-present, omni-potent Breath of Life.

Dear Lovers of Summer Fun & the Tao of Self-Healing,
There are many things you can do with your summer. One wonderful choice for this Memorial Day weekend is to attend the second Super Qi Summit at Omega, jusnorth of New York City in beautiful rolling hills.
I taught at this event two years ago, and it was a powerful learning experience for everyone, instructors included. It’s a smorgasbord with delicious variety of Qi flavors. My newsletter on this event, titled “Super Qi Summit Report: How Attain Tao?” is at: https://healingtaousa.com/articles/super-qi-summit-report-how-attain-tao/
This year we have nine top masters, specialists in different areas of Qi cultivation, all presenting on the topic of Qi Healing. After listening to the nine present, there are breakout mini-seminars where you choose your favorites and train a bit deeper.
Omega is big, there is no shortage of space for last minute signups. The weekend is a bargain for all the Qi power and inside information, distilled from a lifetime of Qi Cultivation.
I am often asked: should I do the Super Qi Summit, or take a retreat in North Carolina. My reply: you’ll be a big winner whatever you choose. If you are seeking to WIDEN your exposure in the realm of Qigong, go to the Summit.
If you are interested in drilling DEEPER on a Qi path you’ve already chosen, take a week long retreat in North Carolina on that topic. There are fifteen retreats to choose from.
Here are the details on the Super Qi Summit.

Cultivating, storing, and expressing qi—the vital energy of life—leads to improved health and overall well-being. This special Super Qi Summit brings together modern masters with profound expertise in healing. Each master shares insights and practices to help you enhance your own well-being as you also empower your ability to help others.
Conceived and curated by Michael J. Gelb, the Super Qi Summit is designed to allow participants to benefit from the synergy between each of the presenters who together bring more 300 years of experience to the Summit.
Through simple movements, guided visualizations, and breathing exercises complemented by inspiring lectures, discussions, and group healing sessions, you come away with stronger, clearer energy and the practical means to help yourself and others.
Whether you are just starting to explore qigong or tai chi, or have been practicing for years, these healing practices require no equipment and can be done by anyone in any physical condition. No previous experience is necessary. Anyone who wants to experience enhanced life energy and well-being is welcome.
