August Qigong and Breathing Retreat

We welcome everyone to our August’s special retreat. You will learn about energy and breathing through Haeng-gong training and breathing meditation which will help you have a healthy mind and body.

People are born with energy from heaven and earth, and live with that energy. The earth’s energy is absorbed through the foods we eat and what we drink. Heavenly energy comes into the human body through breathing and harmonises with the energy of the earth. It circulates evenly inside our bodies and always results in a clear aura.

We can maintain our good health.

Do you have good breathing ?

Do you have quality food ?

Do you have quality of life ?

An Equilibrium Meditation & Healthy Food Retreat

Welcome to this special healthy food retreat.  We will cultivate in you a daily routine of mindfulness and oneness with nature.


Meditation practice helps us awaken to the great potential of our chi-energy.  Meditation also helps us increase self-awareness so we can clarify our visions and hopes.  Come develop your bright, fresh and profoundly grounded energy and establish a new rhythm for your spiritual development.  Explore different types of meditation that are easily implemented in daily life such as walking, Qi-gong, healing massage and ‘health life” talk by Rev. Inmyung Kyomunim..


Why do we need to have healthy foods?

Healthy foods are important for us to keep fit by providing necessary energy.  They are beneficial to longevity by helping prevent physical diseases.  A sound spirit also dwells in a healthy body.




We will have the opportunity to make some healthy Korean foods and eat them together such as gimbap, vegetarian mandoo soup and organic ginger tea made of ginger picked directly from our garden.

Winter Welcoming Meditation Retreat

Winter Welcoming Meditation Retreat – Sunday, 28 May 2017

Dharma Talk on the Preparation for ‘Dying Well’
The winter season is likened to the twilight years of a life.  As winter approaches we will be holding a retreat to give a Dharma talk on how to prepare ‘well-dying’.  In Buddhism dying is mere a transmigration to a new life.  In the dharma talk we will explore the cycle of our lives in comparison with the cycle of four seasons.  This retreat is also in honour of Won Buddhism Founding Master Sotaesan’s passing into Nirvana on 1 June 1943.  All previous Buddhas, Saints and Sages who lived before us will be honoured as well.
Truth is One; Paths are Many
Along with the Dharma talk we will practise various types of meditation, Qi-gong, healing massage and prayers for Barugongyang (temple food).  Come and open your mind to the bright and fresh winter energy, awaken the vibrant chi-energy within you and join us for a unique cultural and spiritual experience through this one day retreat.
