Comments from course evaluations…

I experienced a personal breakthrough in this year’s Oakwood retreat. As I focused my attention inward, I found that my mind was quite calm and my body more relaxed. I really connected with the Chi Breathing. As usual, it was also a lot of fun to get together with old and new friends in the peaceful surroundings of the Oakwood Retreat Center. Thanks again to Frank and Eva for a wonderful retreat! Barbara Benson Unionville, IN

I attended the Oakwood retreat. I had previously attended a local workshop so I had a general sense of the form. However, at the retreat I gained a far deeper appreciation of the mental focus that deepened the practice significantly and was stunned by the power with which it has infused my practice. It is clear to me that this will have a huge impact on my health and wellness. I highly recommend these workshops to anyone looking to improve their physical and emotional health. Thank you!

The Encino Retreat. Aware of learning so much at this retreat! T3 not shoulder, open arms and elbows when up, TAILBONE DOWN, end of the universe-not center 🙂 (thanks Edyth), posture on 3 Centers Merge, breathing down through K1, push out yuzheng to raise baihui, etc… It’s humbling yet empowering to know how much one can be aware of with consistent, cumulative practice. Thank you Chan Laoshi and Eva for your consistent and continual dedication to sharing the wisdom of this ancient art here in the States. Eternally grateful. Deborah Henry Prescott, AZ


I thought the retreat at Oakwood was fabulous. Even though it seems to defy logic, every year is better. It is very nourishing to be in the chi field together and Frank and Eva’s teaching seemed to me to be in even sharper focus. I really felt deliciously renewed in every definition of that word. A number of the details of the practice became clearer to me from balance, to relaxation of the pelvic area, to the focus of the mind. I feel gratitude to Frank and Eva and to everyone who participated. Jordan Shifriss Bloomington, IN

After the retreat, I find myself being more conscious of my practice. During the Lift Chi Up/Pour Chi Down Method, I become more aware of the source of each movement. Master Chan frequently reminds us to relax during this practice which gives me permission to actually enjoy the practice rather than being pre-occupied with the details of the form. Going to a retreat always helps me to jumpstart my practice. B. J. Kish Irvine Bloomington, IN

Oakwood Retreat, astounding the wealth of information is difficult to comprehend, and that it is demonstrated live, well it takes quite awhile to digest it all. if I only could, how every year transcends the last is incredible. It was two days before i started to feel settled after the retreat. Charlie Racette, Ft Wayne, IN

Oakwood was amazing. For the first time in along time I felt at peace. Frank and Eva you are both wonderful teachers and you gave me a wealth of knowledge and information to take with me and use in my practice. I found out a lot about myself here – and more…. The group energy increased each day – building stronger with every healing circle. Everyone was so friendly, patient and encouraging. I’m looking forward to attending next year. Thank you again for an enchanting retreat and thank you to all who attended – our conversations were lovely. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. Beth Warkentien, La Porte, IN

What a wonderful retreat! ! Relaxing and fun. Six days of practice is a true gift. We are so fortunate to have MASTER CHAN and Eva to help learn balance of both mind and body. I cannot say or put into words the 10 star retreat!!! Thank you thank you! I cannot wait until the next retreat. Edyth Marie Rodacker, Shell Beach, CA
